DFS Roundtable: Shaky Running Backs

The DFS team discusses the shake running backs heading into Week 4

The running back landscape is littered with potential big values or landmines depending on your take on their outlook. Any positive outlooks for Week 4?


Following the Raiders one-sided loss to Minnesota, Jon Gruden told reporters, "We've got to get more out of Josh (Jacobs) as a receiver." It's easy to write off anything Gruden says as coach speak, but consider the facts:

  • Jacobs was a polished pass-catcher coming out of Alabama
  • He was routinely split out wide during offseason practices
  • The Raiders haven't gotten anywhere by taking him off the field in hurry-up situations in favor of Jalen Richard or DeAndre Washington.
At just $5,100 (DraftKings), Jacobs may not even need to catch passes to pay off this week. His next opponent, Indianapolis, has allowed 23% more standard fantasy points to opposing running backs than the league average so far this season.
