Summary

Josh Jacobs should be the centerpiece of the Raiders offense in his second season. As a 21-year old rookie, he produced 1,316 yards from scrimmage in 13 games. Jacobs missed some time late in the year with a shoulder injury but showed extreme toughness in playing through pain before the Raiders fell out of playoff contention and gave him some time off. Jacobs was a workhorse on the ground, carrying 242 times for 1,150 yards (a 298-carry pace over 16 games) at a 4.8 yards per carry clip. He showed excellent power and the ability to make the first man miss in the hole. There is potential for Jacobs to make the leap to elite fantasy producer but it revolves largely around how much his role as a pass catcher will increase in his second season. Despite coming in with a reputation as a very good receiver out of the backfield, Jacobs had just 20 receptions as a rookie. If he can add 20 or 30 more catches to his total in his second season, he should be a fantasy RB1. While the Raiders have talked up Jacobs ability as a pass catcher, the team signed third-down specialist Jalen Richard to a two-year extension and are listing third-round draft choice Lynn Bowden as a running back, as well.
