What was Derrick Henry's first game

Nope.   I'm in that period of hating everyone I drafted.

From Adam Caplan   #Raiders HC Jon Gruden on RB Josh Jacobs after practice today when asked how he looked this week: "Pretty good. He got work all three days. I think that's a good sign.

Two limited practices in a row. Likely more to do with the illness than the injury. Drink lots of water. FWIW; the Raiders seem to have some ailment going through the roster. Keisean Nixon was a DNP with an illness today and Tyrell Williams reportedly had something last week.

Never a serious concern but this adds to the encouragement for Sunday. Not sure we've gotten confirmation on the groin/hip designation, but either way it sounds minor. Just need him to start catching balls to creep into that RB1 territory.

The Raiders haven’t had much to cheer about over the last few months, but the first two games of Josh Jacobs’ career should at least give some form of hope. After he churned out 63 rushing yards after contact and six forced missed tackles in Week 1, the ‘Bama product rushed for 83 yards after contact via three forced missed tackles in Week 2. And he has now earned an 87.8 rushing grade that ranks first among all NFL running backs with at least 20 rushing attempts so far this season.

With the illness + hip injury seems like a shaky start. Might FLEX in J. White instead. 

Anyone starting him tomorrow?

Not even being on the injury report is encouraging. I'm definitely rolling him out there. Benching one of Conner, Mixon, or McCoy just for reference. Jacobs would be right around RB15 IMO. Definitely wouldn't start White over him.

I would be concerned starting him regarding the matchup but according to your lineup I would bench McCoy. This Vikings defense is no joke and I feel a lot of clock will be drained by their running game

I have it in my head from the last few years that minny d is an avoid matchup but I think i read that last year they were near thr middle of the pack and they are this year too. Hard to tell this year this early because they stopped ATL from doing anything on the ground but got gashed by GB.

Atlanta hasn't done anything on the ground either week.  The biggest fear would be Oakland falling behind a la the KC game.  He isn't involved in the passing game, but showed in week 2 that he can still produce with limited touches.  Hopefully he throws in a random GL TD.  But if he is healthy and playing, he is essentially their running game so it is a tough sit.

I hate to say it but as of right now he's a matchup play. He just doesn't catch enough to weather the tough matchups, and unfortunately the team is as bad as expected. He's gonna get game scripted out of any chance at production close to half the time.

Owning RB's on bad teams is so tough. It's almost the same as owning a WR on a run heavy team that plays with a lead most the time. We did't expect the Raiders to be this bad, but I think we all knew the Raiders would have some tough games. I did expect more from him in the passing game, but even with that he would be a low end RB2 most weeks. Think he is nothing more than a matchup play now.
