  • No Plans To Trade Josh Jacobs

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs isn't on the trade block, at least for now. After the 24-year-old was on the field for multiple series throughout the exhibition bout against the Jaguars, rumblings began to swirl about a potential move. However, head coach Josh McDaniels was quick to squash any rumors, indicating his preference to subject his players to "live hits" during the preseason, which can't be replicated at practice. Jacobs, whose fifth-year option was declined this offseason, had a down year running the ball in 2021, finishing with 872 yards and nine touchdowns off 217 carries. Yet, he compiled a career-high 54 catches for 348 yards. While some fantasy managers expect the Alabama alum to bounce back this season, doing so may prove difficult with Kenyan Drake and Zamir White forecasted to also receive touches out of the backfield.

  • Raiders Not Shopping RB Josh Jacobs?

    While high-profile teammates like Derek Carr and Davante Adams did not participate in Thursday night’s Hall of Fame game, Raiders running back Josh Jacobs got a considerable amount of playing time. Combined with Las Vegas’ decision to decline Jacobs’ fifth-year option earlier this year and recent reports suggesting that 2022 would be his last season […]

  • Josh Jacobs Sees Plenty Of Work In Preseason Opener

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs started in the Hall of Fame preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday and played in multiple series, rushing five times for 30 yards while adding two catches for 14 yards. "I always think it's good for backs to carry the ball in the preseason," head coach Josh McDaniels said. "There's a lot of things that happen when you're getting tackled and hit that you can't simulate in practice." Jacobs' heavy involvement in the first preseason raised eyebrows, but he's battling Kenyan Drake and rookie Zamir White for snaps in the offense this year. White looked good Thursday, running for 52 yards on 11 carries, also catching three of four targets for 23 yards. The Raiders backfield could be headed for a committee approach involving Jacobs, Drake and White in 2022.

  • Josh Jacobs Likely To Share Touches This Year

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is expected to share touches with Kenyan Drake this season. Drake, who is working his way back into shape after breaking his ankle in December, is predicted to have a "significant role," according to Tashan Reed of The Athletic. This means that not only will Jacobs see less carries, but he'll also receive fewer looks from quarterback Derek Carr on the receiving end. Unquestionably, the committee approach isn't ideal for fantasy managers. Still, Jacobs should have some solid outings in 2022-23. The same sentiment holds true for Drake. Yet, neither will likely be a routine fantasy producer, although an injury could open things up for either man throughout the year.

  • Josh Jacobs To Be Stuck In Committee Backfield?

    Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson suggests that the Las Vegas Raiders will be going with a situational committee approach in their backfield this year, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see the position get entirely revamped next offseason with Josh Jacobs in a contract year in 2022. New head coach Josh McDaniels comes over from the New England Patriots, where they often employed a committee approach to their backfield that gave fantasy managers fits. This could be similar with Jacobs, pass-catching back Kenyan Drake, rookie Zamir White and Brandon Bolden all involved on a weekly basis. The writing was on the wall when the Raiders declined Jacobs' fifth-year option, and it was further solidified when they drafted White. With all that said, Jacobs should now be considered a low-end RB2/high-end RB3 in fantasy drafts.

  • Josh Jacobs Returns To Practice

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs, who sat out of organized team activities this spring, returned to practice on the first day of training camp on Thursday. In what could be his final season in black and silver, Jacobs should be the team's primary backfield option, but he'll have to prove himself to the new coaching staff to hold off Kenyan Drake, rookie Zamir White and Brandon Bolden, who has plenty of experience with head coach Josh McDaniels from their time in New England. With many folks thinking that White could eventually wind up as the starter at some point in 2022, Jacobs' fantasy stock has fallen to that of a low-end RB2 entering fall fantasy drafts.

  • Josh Jacobs To Be Involved In Backfield Committee?

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs, who had his fifth-year option declined, could be involved in a backfield committee this year alongside Kenyan Drake, Brandon Bolden, Ameer Abdullah and rookie Zamir White. Jacobs had 732 carries for 3,087 rushing yards in the last three seasons, but he hasn't been very durable. His longest run the last two years also went for only 28 yards, and he needs to work on his ball security. It's unlikely that Jacobs will be a bell-cow back for the Raiders in 2022, especially when White has similar traits to Jacobs. There's a decent chance that general manager Dave Ziegler and head coach Josh McDaniels already think White is better than both Jacobs and Drake. With all that said, Jacobs' stock as an RB2 is falling as we approach training camp.

  • Josh Jacobs Misses Minicamp

    Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs wasn't on the field for the team's mandatory minicamp, but he's been participating in the Raiders offseason program. The fact that he wasn't on the field for minicamp is a signal that something is up physically, but there is no sense that anything is serious. NFL teams often keep a tight lid on injuries at this time of the year, so if something is up with Jacobs, we may not know until training camp. Jacobs' fifth-year option was declined, so he'll become a free agent after this season. The 24-year-old had a career-high 54 receptions for 348 yards in 15 games last year, but he also had a career-low 872 rushing yards and nine touchdowns on 217 carries. Jacobs should be more of a high-end RB2 target with Kenyan Drake still in the fold and after the team drafted rookie Zamir White.
