Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 17 vs DEN (3 / 20 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 39 / 0 rec)
Even with Josh Jacobs sidelined and the Raiders trailing most of the game, Richard played just 18 snaps (25%) and only touched it five times. Richard did make an impact despite his limited opportunities. He lined up out wide and took a tunnel screen for a 33-yard gain.
2019 Week 16 vs LAC (5 / 11 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 18 / 0 rec)
Despite Josh Jacobs being out, Richard remained in basically his same role as the third-down back and occasional change of pace runner. He played 38% of the snaps and had nine touches. The game script and the return of Hunter Renfrow combined to limit Richard to just four targets. He had one 10-yard catch but all of his other touches went for five yards or less.
2019 Week 15 vs JAX (1 / 11 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 25 / 0 rec)
Richard played 29% of the snaps, his ninth-straight game playing between 20 and 40% of the offense's snaps. He had most of his production in the two-minute drill just before halftime. He took a draw through a big hole up the middle and got into the secondary but slipped when trying to make a cut on a gain of 11. He took a well-blocked screen for a gain of 24 yards on the next play.
2019 Week 14 vs TEN (7 / 28 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Richard saw only a slight bump in playing time with Josh Jacobs sidelined, playing 38% of the snaps. He remained primarily in his third-down role but did get one series as the every-down back in each half. Richard did most of his damage as a runner. On a 3rd-and-2, Carr audibles to a run call and Richard burst through a nice hole off of left tackle for an 8-yard gain. Richard caught just two passes. He had a short gain on a 3rd-and-long and picked up 11 on a nice catch out of the backfield, cutting back to the middle of the field and getting past the first defender for the solid pickup.
2019 Week 13 vs KC (1 / 2 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Richard got a carry up the middle on an early 3rd-and-2 and was the beneficiary of a very friendly spot after it looked like he was stacked up short of the line to gain. Richard's only catch came on a short pass over the middle in garbage time.
2019 Week 12 vs NYJ (2 / 4 / 0 rush, 7 / 6 / 47 / 0 rec)
Carr caught a short dump off from Carr and accelerated past a defender to find a crease and pick up 18 yards. He picked up 17 yards after finding an open spot in the zone with the Jets linebacker slow to react. Richard was wide open in the flat with some room to run after the catch and had a terrible drop. The ball went through his hands and bounced right off his chest. With Josh Jacobs held out the final quarter, Richard saw a little extra playing time late.
2019 Week 11 vs CIN (2 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Richard played just 23% of the snaps and failed to make an impact. He was dropped for a four-yard loss on a pitch play. He caught a short pass on a dump off for a 7-yard gain with the defense playing way back on 2nd-and-19.
2019 Week 10 vs LAC (2 / 0 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
Richard has seen his share of the offensive snaps creep up four straight weeks. He was on the field for 38% of the offensive plays against the Chargers. Four of his six touches came in the two-minute offense on the final drive of the game. He caught an option route for 10 yards. Richard had a key 9-yard catch to get the Raiders into the red zone. He blocked initially but slipped out of the backfield when Carr started to scramble, caught the short dump off, and accelerated between a pair of defender for the 9-yard pickup.
2019 Week 9 vs DET (2 / 12 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 56 / 0 rec)
Richard played 33% of the snaps, his most since Week 3. He was targeted unsuccessfully twice in the first half and had a short reception in the third quarter. That was it until the game-winning touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter when Richard suddenly became the go-to player for the Raiders. He touched it on four straight plays and gained 66 yards to get Oakland a first-and-goal. Richard started the drive with a beautiful over the shoulder catch in traffic for a 31-yard gain on a wheel route. The next two plays he ran up the middle for seven and then five yards. Then he lined up out wide and ran a crossing route, catching it on the run across the middle and dragging the defender for a gain of 23 yards.
2019 Week 8 vs HOU (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)
Richard played 30% of the snaps, his most since Week 3. He made a 20-yard grab, beating a linebacker with a quick cut back to the middle of the field. He showed nice acceleration to split a pair of defenders to get into the second level.
2019 Week 7 vs GB (2 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Despite the Raiders playing from way behind in the second half, Richard only played 23% of the snaps. Josh Jacobs is growing into a true workhorse role, with increasing usage as a receiver. Meanwhile, DeAndre Washington has become the preferred option as a change of pace runner. It leaves Richard without much of a role.
2019 Week 5 vs CHI (2 / 14 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Richard had another quiet game, earning just four touches despite Josh Jacobs missing much of the second quarter. He did well with his few opportunities, however. He got through the hole quickly on a run up the middle for a gain of nine yards. He also made a really nice hands catch in traffic over the middle of the field for a 7-yard pickup. His 11-yard catch on a dump off on 3rd-and-25 got the Raiders back into field goal range.
2019 Week 4 vs IND (4 / 17 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)
Richard played 28% of the snaps and remains involved in the offense as part of a three-man committee. He took a pitch around the edge for three yards on 3rd-and-2, showing a bit of power to finish the run and pick up the first down.
2019 Week 3 vs MIN (2 / 15 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 14 / 0 rec)
With the Raiders trailing by at least two touchdowns for most of the game, Richard played 49% of the offensive snaps. He still managed just two carries and three targets. The Raiders have a few more weapons in the passing game this season than last and it was Darren Waller who Carr looked to over and over against the Vikings prevent defense instead of Richard. There wasn't much to get excited over in his performance. His 11-yard run came on a draw play with two minutes left and the Raiders trailing by 27.
2019 Week 2 vs KC (2 / 3 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 2 / 0 rec)
Richard was in for the two-minute drill before halftime and caught a short dump off. He fumbled it but was luckily able to jump back on it. His ball control is atrocious and makes it hard for the team to trust him. He made another bad mistake late in the half on what should have been an easy completion along the sideline. Nobody was near him but he lost track of where he was and wasn't able to get both feet down inbounds.
2019 Week 1 vs DEN (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Richard played nine snaps, mostly on third downs. He handled just one touch. He took a draw on 3rd-and-4 for a three yard gain, getting dragged down just inches short.
