Oakland Raiders Fantasy Spin
Coach Jon Gruden said Monday that, "We've got to get more out of Josh as a receiver." Agreed. Jacobs was spelled more often than usual Sunday after dealing with a head cold for most of the week, ultimately playing just 25 snaps compared to 29 for Jalen Richard and nine for DeAndre Washington. Still, this has been a problem all season: Jacobs has just three targets compared to six for Richard and two for Washington. Jacobs is set up well to rebound against the Colts in Week 4 if stud LB Darius Leonard (concussion) remains sidelined.
Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Spin
T.Y. Hilton (quad) remained sidelined on Thursday. Hilton is the kind of player who does not need to practice to play, but a third straight DNP on Friday would make him doubtful to suit up against the Raiders. It's possible Hilton will end up a game-time decision.
