Is Josh Jacobs taking part in Week 4?

UPDATE: Jacobs participated in apply Thursday — a great signal for his Week 4 prospects.

Jacobs (ankle, toe) does not play till Monday evening, so his standing will go away us on the sting of our seats. He is doubtless going to be listed as “questionable” heading into the matchup with the Chargers, however we might not know if he’ll play till simply earlier than kickoff. Raiders coach Jon Gruden has been hopeful Jacobs could be again this week, however we do not have a ton of knowledge since Vegas’ apply schedule is moved again a day.

There’s an opportunity Vegas will give him one other week of relaxation with Peyton Barber having success in opposition to Miami. Barber eclipsed 20 touches and 100 speeding yards, and the Raiders have gone out of their method to categorical perception in him.

If Jacobs fits up, we’ve him as our No. 18 RB in commonplace and No. 23 RB in PPR in opposition to a Chargers’ group that has given up the Eleventh-most fantasy factors to operating backs. Barber is a flex consideration if he cannot go. Be sure to place Jacobs in your flex spot if there isn’t a ruling on his standing by the point Sunday’s video games start. That approach you may have extra flexibility if he is inactive.

Dalvin Prepare dinner harm replace

UPDATE: Prepare dinner practiced on Friday and is formally “questionable” for Sunday’s sport in opposition to Cleveland.

Prepare dinner was a restricted participant in Wednesday’s apply, and though it is simply hypothesis, he is trending towards with the ability to play (vs Cleveland). This seems like an “all or nothing” state of affairs. If he is lively we must always count on a full workload. Mike Zimmer does not seem to be he’ll maintain him again based mostly on his feedback final week. Prepare dinner was very near taking part in final week, so we’ve a hunch he’ll play this week. Alexander Mattison was terrific in his absence, getting 32 touches for 171 complete yards. He is an awesome RB2 choice if Prepare dinner does miss the sport.

For now, we’re setting our rankings as if Prepare dinner goes to go, and we’ll modify accordingly if he is dominated out actually within the week. He is our RB3 in PPR leagues and in commonplace leagues for Week 4.

Is Darrell Henderson taking part in Week 4?

UPDATE: Rams coach Sean McVay stated Friday that he “anticipates” Henderson taking part in in Week 4.

Henderson (ribs) took the apply subject Wednesday, and he’s trending towards returning for the Rams’ Week 4 sport in opposition to Arizona. It is powerful to know what his workload can be when he returns, as Sony Michel will doubtless eat into increasingly of his touches as he will get extra conversant in Sean McVay’s offense. That stated, it is powerful to like both of these backs in opposition to Arizona. We count on this sport to be an air-raid shootout, so there could also be little work on the bottom. Nonetheless, Henderson warrants flex consideration relying in your different choices.

That stated, we ranked Henderson because the RB27 in commonplace leagues and RB34 in PPR for Week 4.

Elijah Mitchell harm replace

UPDATE: Mitchell’s standing for Sunday is “in limbo,” based on 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan. He is formally “questionable.”

Mitchell (shoulder) was additionally a restricted participant in apply Wednesday. Trey Sermon did not impress in his probability to be the 49ers lead canine within the backfield, so it is not fallacious to count on Mitchell to be the first again as quickly as he returns. He is trending towards taking part in, however we’ll have to remain tuned for this one. The 49er’s wish to preserve issues near the vest, so we might have to attend till sport time. The 49ers tackle Seattle in Week 4, who’ve given up probably the most fantasy factors to RBs this season. Sure, they acquired steamrolled by Derrick Henry, however Jonathon Taylor/Nyheim Hines and Alexander Mattison additionally had good video games in opposition to them. Mitchell is in a great place if he can swimsuit up.

Mitchell is our RB19 in commonplace and RB22 in PPR leagues for Week 4. If Sermon is getting the beginning, he’ll doubtless be ranked a bit bit beneath Mitchell is now based mostly on what we have seen to date.
