After their deal with Kliff Kingsbury fell through, the Raiders hired Luke Getsy as their new OC under HC Antonio Pierce. Getsy spent the last two years as OC in Chicago, where the Bears ranked in the bottom half of the league in both total yards and points. Those were run-heavy offenses, in large part because they were quarterbacked by Justin Fields. Getsy was the Packers' QB coach and passing-game coordinator before his stint with the Bears, so we'd expect a more balanced attack in Vegas. Unless, of course, the Getsy hire is a precursor to the Raiders swinging a trade for Fields.

Kliff Kingsbury has pulled his name out of consideration for the Raiders' OC job, according to his agent. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that contract talks between the two sides broke down late in the process. We'll see who the Raiders eventually land on as OC under HC Antonio Pierce. Kingsbury, meanwhile, is a "leading candidate" for the Commanders' OC job, per Schefter.

The Raiders are set to hire Kliff Kingsbury as their new OC under HC Antonio Pierce, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Kingsbury had an underwhelming tenure as Cardinals HC from 2019 to 2022, going 28-37-1 over those four seasons. He landed two of those teams inside the top 8 in total yards, but none cracked the top 10 in points. Kingsbury at least deployed fast-paced attacks, with three of his four offenses finishing top 3 in pace. We'll see exactly how Kingsbury meshes with the defensive-minded Pierce. The Raiders offense has some big questions to answer this offseason, with RB Josh Jacobs set to hit free agency and QB Jimmy Garoppolo a strong release candidate.

The Raiders removed the interim label from Antonio Pierce, naming the 45-year-old their new HC. Pierce took over as interim HC of a 3-5 Raiders team this past season and proceeded to go 5-4 the rest of the way. Vegas' points per game rose from 15.8 pre-Pierce to 22.9 after Pierce took over. While Pierce talked a lot about his love of running the rock, the Raiders' neutral run rate actually sunk from 43.1% to 41.4% in Pierce's nine games. He did ride a workhorse RB in all of those games, though -- first Josh Jacobs and then Zamir White. Jacobs is due to hit free agency in March, while White is signed for two more seasons. We'll see what the Raiders do in the backfield, and how Pierce fills out the rest of his coaching staff.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad) is out for Sunday's finale vs. the Broncos. He finishes the season with 805 rushing yards on a career-low 3.5 yards per carry across 13 games. Jacobs is set to hit free agency in March at 26 years old. RB Zamir White will close out the year as Vegas' feature back. He's racked up 59 carries and 11 targets over the last three weeks.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Interim HC Antonio Pierce said that Jacobs will be a game-time decision for Sunday's finale vs. the Broncos, but we'd be surprised if he played. Look for Zamir White to get another game as Vegas' feature back.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Colts. Zamir White gets another game as lead back after registering 17-69-1 and 22-145-0 rushing lines the past two weeks.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Colts. So Zamir White will get another game as lead back. He's ripped off 17-69-1 and 22-145-0 rushing lines the past two weeks and is a nice Week 17 fantasy play against Indianapolis' 30th-ranked RB defense.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad) missed practice again on Thursday. We might be looking at another game of Zamir White as lead back against the Colts this weekend. We'll see if Jacobs gets on the field tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad) did not practice on Wednesday. He was limited last Friday but has missed two practices since, so he might have suffered a setback. We'll keep tabs on Jacobs' status over the next few days, leading up to Sunday's game vs. the Colts. Zamir White will be in the RB2 mix if Jacobs sits again.

Raiders RB Zamir White racked up 145 yards on 22 carries in Monday's win over the Chiefs. He had just seven rushes for 33 yards at halftime but loaded up in the fourth quarter, as Vegas ran out the clock. White tallied 64 of his yards on just his final three runs to get to the 2-minute warning. That followed his solid 17-69-1 effort (plus 3 receptions for 16 yards) in the Week 15 beatdown of the Chargers. But RB Josh Jacobs seems likely to be ready for Week 17. He was officially questionable for the K.C. game, though it didn't sound like he actually got close to playing. Jacobs managed just one limited practice for Week 16, sandwiched between two missed days. White belongs on a fantasy roster heading into Week 17, but don't expect him to be usable unless Jacobs remains out. White's past two weeks have made his dynasty outlook much more interesting, after he had basically done nothing through nearly his first two seasons. Consider White more of a "hold" than a "buy," though. He's no lock to take over the backfield even if Jacobs leaves in free agency.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, illness) is inactive for today's game vs. the Chiefs. That leaves the backfield to Zamir White and Ameer Abdullah. See where those guys sit in the Week 16 RB Rankings.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, illness) won't play vs. the Chiefs today, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. That will again leave the backfield to Zamir White and Ameer Abdullah. White racked up 85 total yards and a score on a 70% snap rate last week -- but that came with positive game script in an easy win over the Chargers. The Raiders are 10.5-point underdogs today, so White is at risk of losing more snaps to Abdullah. See our updated projections for the Raiders backfield.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, illness) is a "true game-time decision" for Monday afternoon's meeting with the Chiefs, according to CBS' Tracy Wolfson. Jacobs wound up getting in only a limited practice on Friday this week. We'll look for further updates on his status and get Vegas' inactives around 11:30 am ET tomorrow. Zamir White will get another game as lead back if Jacobs is out.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad, illness) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Chiefs. He was sidelined on Thursday, limited in Friday's practice, but then out again on Saturday. It's unclear if the quad or illness kept him out today. Interim HC Antonio Pierce said early in the week that he expected Jacobs to play against Kansas City, but we certainly wouldn't consider him a lock to be out there. Fantasy owners hoping to start Jacobs would ideally have RB Zamir White rostered as insurance.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (quad) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Chargers. The team didn’t rule him out until this afternoon, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, while The Athletic’s Vic Tafur tweeted that Jacobs might have played had this game been Sunday. So it sounds like there’s a good chance that he’s back for Week 16. Jacobs’ absence tonight leaves Vegas’ backfield to Zamir White and Ameer Abdullah. White figures to handle the majority of the early-down work, with Abdullah playing on passing downs. See where both guys sit in the Week 15 RB Rankings.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs' status for Thursday night's game vs. the Chargers is "firmly in doubt," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jacobs did not practice at all this week with his quad injury. We have him projected to miss this game, leaving the backfield to Zamir White and Ameer Abdullah. We'll get Las Vegas' inactives a little before 7 pm ET tonight.

The Raiders list RB Josh Jacobs (quad) as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Chargers. He didn't practice all week and seems unlikely to play, but we'll look for further updates on his status. Jacobs' absence would leave Zamir White as Vegas' likely lead back, with Ameer Abdullah handling passing downs.
