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.

He’s been playing with the shoulder issue all year. He sat out one week had a positive mri result and it’s still doom and gloom in here. He was itching to play last week the raiders playoffs hopes are still alive arrow is pointed in the right direction. Grab Washington if you can just to be safe but I don’t even think that’s necessary.

It was a joke serious guy, I'm not trying to imply Jacobs will sit. But you do realize Rapaport is a moron and has tweeted plenty of inaccurate news right?

I concur, just saying if the MRI is clean, you really can't misreport that. He was begging to play the point of tears to come in last game and also its about setting up a culture of  winning to entice free agents. I think he plays and does well.

Yeah, hopefully he can give us owners two more weeks. It is the last game in Oakland this week and they have been campaigning for OROY for him. Playoff chances are slim to none with 2 games back of the wild card with three to go.

I have nothing to add to this convo except the fact that he was in tears cuz he couldnt play, now compare that to someone who calls in sick to go bowling...  how can you not root for this kid?!

Imagine thinking playing a highly physical sport and throwing a ball across a lane is comparable...

If it's pain tolerance issue he will play. IMO

 

He'll play because I'm playing against him in both my leagues lol.

Seems logical to think he still could be a little risky for in-game aggravation if he takes a big hit or falls wrong on that shoulder.  And the Raiders clearly have nothing to play for and zero reason to push him if he does aggravate it.  So I'm not sure how automatic a start he is if you have comparable options.  It's a great matchup for sure though.

I don't own him but I remember they did an interview and story on him before a SNF or MNF earlier this year and he seemed like a really humble, nice guy. Also had a rough upbringing where I believe his dad raised a bunch of kids in poverty. Very hard not to root for him

It’s no more of a risk than any other week he’s played with the same issue.

It has zero to do with mentality. You're like the mom that says "Oh you're to sick to go to school but you can sit on the computer?!?"

Just because Bell was able to go bowling does not mean he was able to play in a damn football game. I don't understand why that's so difficult to comprehend.

Welcome back young man. Good news as the MRI seems to indicate low or no probability for making the injury worse. He should be out there per normal. Last week was clearly precautionary by the Raiders. Word is Jacobs was pissed they made him sit.

Buddy look, your argument MIGHT hold water if it was anybody other than the guy who sat out a whole season to protect his body. Face it, if bell had half the heart jacobs did, he’d be an all time great, instead his corpse rotting on the Jets.

is JJ playing or not? What is everyone here rambling about?? 

I just dropped DW thinking I had the fantasy pickup of the year and now you're telling me there's a chance JJ ain't playing even though he's healthy??

No one knows for sure but odds went from 20-30% of him playing to 80%+, I'd say.

just add that dude to the Ignore List ...Bell "burned" managers this year so the splergs are numerous.

Yup I think he's 100% playing, at least I have him in a best ball, oh how I love thee best ball. In redraft, I think you have to roll with him unless you have a RB2 with enough upside (maybe a Freeman type?)

I don't get why people seem to have a personal issue with Bell. Imagine getting mad at a dude because he went bowling...

The word on Bell was that he wanted to play last week, but the organization told him to stay away from the team so he didn’t get everyone sick.
