  Raiders | Peyton Barber to be lead back?    Sat Sep 18, 02:05 PM

Las Vegas Raiders RB Peyton Barber is expected to handle 'some of the lead-back duties' Sunday, Sept. 19, against the Pittsburgh Steelers with RB Josh Jacobs out with a foot injury, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Friday. Barber is said to have made a strong impression since his signing Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: Kenyan Drake is far more talented and more likely to get work in the passing game. He's the Raiders back you want to play this week, Barber is merely a desperation play.

Las Vegas Raiders OG Richie Incognito (calf), RB Josh Jacobs (toe, ankle), LB Nick Kwiatkoski (concussion), QB Marcus Mariota (quadricep) and CB Roderic Teamer (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 16.

Footballguys view: Jacobs will likely be a game-time decision at best. This is a good week to play Kenyan Drake in PPR leagues whether Jacobs is active or not. Nathan Peterman will back up Derek Carr with Mariota out.

Footballguys view: A missed practice on Thursday is a bit of a concern. If he's limited on Friday, Fantasy GMs are still going to have to have other options at the ready. The Raiders can turn to Kenyan Drake against the Steelers if Jacobs can't go.
