FTFY

He's got the most rushing attempts in the league.  He's getting Trent Brown and Ruggs back this week.  Not worried at all.

CEH owner is going to enjoy the ride.  Now, back to your regularly scheduled Josh Jacobs programming.

Josh Jacobs suffered an ankle injury in Week 12 against Atlanta. 

Jacobs will have tests on the ankle Monday morning. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the injury "looked worse than it is," which is good news, seeing that the injury appeared catastrophic on the field. Jacobs had seven carries for 27 yards before the injury. Devontae Booker led the team in carries from there, generating six yards on five rushing attempts. Booker should be a waiver wire priority this week for fantasy players in need of a plug-and-play RB2/3. 

 

Could be a HAS? Concern going fwd would be reaggravation if he plays through it.

I hate this 'has a chance' to play language. That was being thrown about in the Mixon thread everyday.

Based on his reaction on the field, I would expect him to be out this week with a possible Week 14 return.


Different type of injury, but yes, as of now I’d put it at less than 50% that he suits up next week.

 

It’s nice that he should be back for the fantasy playoffs though.

Surely the Raiders can beat the Jets without him right? If that is the case, they might just sit him for the stretch run but given how they looked vs the Falcons, could be all hands on deck and Jacobs rarely misses a game.

I would be fine with him sitting, my leagues playoffs are the dreaded week 16 and 17. I wouldn't trust Booker at all this week, even with it being the Jets, I am hoping some of those bubble teams blow all their faab with multiple weeks left on Booker. I would probably look at Jalen slightly more.

Sounds like unique settings. In more common league setting no reason he couldn’t be a great flex play.

When your 1st round pick is reduced to a "great flex play" 🙃
