Josh Jacobs questionable for Week 15, clearly dealing with shoulder pain

Fantasy players could be dealing with another game day decision for Josh Jacobs. We break down the fantasy football implications for Week 15.

Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is nowhere near 100 percent, but he is going to try and gut it out in Week 15. Jacobs is officially listed as questionable with a shoulder injury.

He met with the media for the first time to discuss the injury, and it is clear that he’s playing with significant pain. Jacobs would seem to be in a better place than he was last week, but even with three limited workouts this week, it could end up being another difficult game-day decision.

Fantasy football analysis: Raiders running backs

Last week, Sunday morning brought word Jacobs would play, but then he was deactivated in the afternoon. I don’t think anybody should be surprised if something similar happens this week.

DeAndre Washington is next man up, so if you have Washington, he’s worth holding onto while we wait to see if Jacobs is active for Week 15. The game is at 4:05 p.m., so there’s a good chance some fantasy players might need to make a difficult decision for 1:00 p.m. kickoffs.
