Fantasy football analysis

While Jacobs has been out for the last two weeks, Zamir White has carried the majority of the load in the backfield. White had a huge Week 16, adding 145 yards on the ground. White will be the top back this week in the likely case that Jacobs is out.

NFL DFS analysis

Jacobs comes in at $6,200 as a FLEX in daily fantasy at DraftKings Sportsbook. However, due to his doubtful designation and absence at practice this week, there are certainly players available at that price point who will be bigger earners than Jacobs.

Betting analysis

The Raiders have gone 2-0 without Jacobs, and with the way White has been running, Jacobs’ absence shouldn’t affect the outcome of the game. White’s total rushing yards prop is worth taking a look at this week, as well.
