Josh Jacobs (ankle) is questionable for Week 4 against the Chargers. "We'll run him around the field on gameday and see how he feels," coach Jon Gruden said. He also labeled Jacobs a game-time decision. Peyton Barber handled 26 touches in Las Vegas' Week 3 win over the Dolphins, taking over for Kenyan Drake on third downs, and could again be featured as a bell-cow if Jacobs can't go. Drake would also be a viable (albeit thin) FLEX option in PPR leagues if given another chance as the Raiders' No. 2 runner.
Los Angeles Chargers DFS Spin
Keenan Allen (ankle) was limited in Thursday's practice. Allen should be fine after logging limited practice reps this far in advance of his Monday Night tilt with the Raiders. He's been in the league nine years so one limited practice is not particularly concerning. Allen has topped 100 yards in two of three weeks to start the year and remains a WR1 in an easy matchup with the Raiders.
