Here are the Week 17 Fantasy Football Running Backs to Sit.
Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas Raiders at Indianapolis Colts
It’s not always pretty but Jacobs somehow gets points. Of course, the Raiders have to be committed to using him, which they don’t always do. They have lately and he’s scored between 10.0-20.0 fantasy points in four of the last five weeks. Is that enough to trust him for Week 17? Not so much.
The Raiders travel to Indianapolis for a showdown with the Colts. Both teams have something to play for but the Colts have maintained their good run defense all season long. Eight backs have broken through to have good games against the Colts, but most were given a heavy volume of touches. He is a a borderline RB2/flex player this week.
