Jalen Richard Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Raiders RB Jalen Richard has been activated from the COVID list. He's not a fantasy option but could siphon a few passing-down snaps from RB Josh Jacobs down the stretch. It's worth monitoring in Saturday's game vs. the Browns, but Jacobs remains a rock-solid fantasy starter in that one.

Raiders RB Jalen Richard remains on the COVID list and won't play vs. the Chiefs today. With RB Kenyan Drake done for the season, Vegas is down to RBs Josh Jacobs and Peyton Barber. Jacobs, who's averaged 12.8 carries and 5.8 targets over the last 5 games, should continue to see big volume today.

Raiders RB Kenyan Drake broke his ankle in Sunday's loss to Washington and will miss the rest of the season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Drake has averaged 5.1 carries and 2.6 targets behind Josh Jacobs over the last 8 games, so his absence could mean a few extra touches for Jacobs. RB Jalen Richard landed on the COVID list on Sunday morning, so we'll see when he's cleared to return. RB Peyton Barber also figures to be active for Vegas the rest of the way.

Raiders RB Jalen Richard is out "indefinitely" with a foot injury, The Athletic's Tashan Reed reports. Richard's role has dwindled the past couple of years -- and that was already likely to continue with the offseason addition RB Kenyan Drake. Richard is off the fantasy radar.

The Raiders have placed RB Kenyan Drake on the non-football injury list to open training camp. The team didn't announce what injury is keeping Drake out. He was seen working on the side with trainers at Wednesday's practice, though. We'll keep an eye on his status in the coming days. RBs Jalen Richard and Theo Riddick, meanwhile, landed on the COVID list. Maybe Josh Jacobs will get a few more chances to show Vegas coaches he can catch passes.

Update: Drake returned to practice on July 30.
