What was Derrick Henry's first game

Nope.   I'm in that period of hating everyone I drafted.

From Adam Caplan   #Raiders HC Jon Gruden on RB Josh Jacobs after practice today when asked how he looked this week: "Pretty good. He got work all three days. I think that's a good sign.

very very risky play even if he suits up. all it takes is one hit and hes of risk for a goose egg. better if they just come out and rule him out so we don’t get stuck with a DJ situation

 

late game, as well ... too risky to wait on this kid if earlier options are available. 

 

 

RW sidebar ... Cleats prolly won't get his Jacobs vs KING HENDRY!!1! slobberknocker 🤷‍♂️

This shakes all 4 of my teams. I'm gonna have to sit him today. :(

The latest.....

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Josh Jacobs (questionable, shoulder) is a "true game-time decision" for Week 14 against the Titans.

Jacobs returned to what the Raiders deemed as a "limited" practice on Friday after sitting out both Wednesday and Thursday, though coach Jon Gruden admitted the rookie "didn't do much." Playing through a broken shoulder that has reportedly bothered him since Week 7, it's a coin flip whether Jacobs sees the field Sunday for the Raiders' 4:25 PM ET kickoff. Already over 1,000 yards rushing for the year, Jacobs has been an immediate difference-maker for Oakland and his loss would be felt in both real life and fantasy. DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard would form an uninspiring committee against the Titans if Jacobs can't go.

Washington seems like the pickup here over Richard. Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t Richard the 3rd down/ pass catching back? Wouldn’t expect his role to change much at all. 

You are correct, Maybe a few more carries but both are uninspiring options.

You are correct, however, with increased snaps, Richard has the potential for 8+ targets in the passing game which could create a nice floor in PPR.

I have a feeling he plays through it and does just fine. He has been doing it nearly the entire season. Missing stretches of games as well, while still putting up big numbers. That being said I am sitting him for Singletary. Can't risk it and I've got two weeks for my playoff match up with ESPN's old settings.

This is a playoff nightmare. All the Fantasy Now guys on ESPN feel that he plays but who knows. Even though I have Powell, I've gotta wait on Jacobs. I've used him every week all season. 😆 Backup plan Penny tonight. 🥶

I benched him.  I picked up Washington but I don't really like that matchup.   Going with plan B by using Sterling Shepard.  

 

You have to play Jacobs over those options.

I could pick up Powell, but I think I'm just gonna wait and see and play Washington if Jacobs is out. It'd really suck to bench him and watch him have a decent game.

Too risky. He could get knocked out of the game on the first play. Just not worth the risk. If it's Dalvin then maybe, but some of the options people have mentioned starting could outscore Jacobs even if he plays the whole game. The upside isn't high enough to justify the risk.

Was thinking similar, but Shepard is one hit away from retirement.  Plus Eli was benched for a reason.
