4. Zamir White (Las Vegas Raiders)

One running back who looks to be line for a start this week is Raiders' running back Zamir White. Josh Jacobs left the game late against the Vikings with an injury and on a short week with the Raiders playing on Thursday night, it doesn't bode well for Jacobs availability this week.

If Jacobs is out, then Zamir White will likely handle a majority of the workload out of the backfield. This week, the Raiders are playing a Chargers defense that has struggled against the run and allowed over 113 rushing yards per game as well as 14 rushing touchdowns which is the seventh most in the NFL.

The injury for Josh Jacobs doesn't seem to be a multiple week issue so White may one be a starter this week and that is why he is ranked here. If these were just for Week 15, he would be one of the top options at running back on the waiver wire.
