Josh Jacobs Injury: What his status means for Week 4 fantasy football

Josh Jacobs is on the Raiders final injury report for Week 4. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Game status: The team told NFL Network Jacobs will be active for Week 4 Monday Night Football.

Game day update: Josh Jacobs remains a true game-time decision. Adam Schefter is reporting the Raiders “want to see how ... Jacobs looks and feels during pre-game warmups tonight before deciding whether he will play against the Chargers.” If he cannot go, Peyton Barber seems to have the edge, but Kenyan Drake cannot be ignored.

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs’ status for Monday night’s AFC West showdown with the Los Angles Chargers is still up in the air. However, if you were looking for a sign of hope here, Jacobs was able to practice in a limited role on Thursday and Friday of this week.

Without Jacobs, the Raiders have been leaning mostly on Peyton Barber to handle the rushing work for the team. Barber had a solid outing last week against Miami, rushing for 111 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. He also had three catches for 31 yards. He’s been getting work in the two weeks that the Raiders have been without Jacobs, and he’s a good option in fantasy football lineups if Jacobs can’t play.

If Jacobs is cleared to go this week, he’ll have fantasy value as well, and he should return to his regular workload as the team’s No. 1 running back.
