Josh Jacobs Dominant In Week 12 Loss

Sunday, November 26, 7:17 PM

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had a robust workload, rushing for 110 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in the Week 12 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Jacobs' rushing yardage was over 100 yards for the second time this season. The Raiders running back broke off a 63-yard run for a touchdown in the second quarter to extend the Raiders lead. Despite the strong performance, Jacobs ceded receiving work to Ameer Abdullah again. The Raiders appear to favor Abdullah in most passing-down situations. Jacobs and the Raiders have a Week 13 bye week, so the team will have an extra week to rest and prepare for their Week 14 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings run defense has been strong this season, allowing the fourth-fewest yards per carry. Jacobs has proven a reliable asset this season, but fantasy managers must place him on the bench next week.

Tyler Allgeier Sees Decreased Role Again

Sunday, November 26, 9:12 PM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier began the season splitting the backfield duties with rookie Bijan Robinson. However, it appears the Falcons are finally ready to let Robinson loose and he has been making the most of it. That means, Allgeier will become the No. 2 option and see a reduced role going forward. On Sunday, Allgeier rushed 10 times for 64 yards in the win over the New Orleans Saints. A majority of his carries came in the fourth quarter as the Falcons were just trying to run out the clock. He did average 6.4 yards per carry, but the volume is going to be the biggest concern going forward. Fantasy managers should consider Allgeier a touchdown-dependent RB3 heading into next week's matchup against the New York Jets.
