View RB Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Jacobs finished the 2021 season with 217 carries for 872 yards and 9 TDs. He added 54 catches on 64 targets for 348 yards.
  • Jacobs missed Weeks 2 and 3 with toe and ankle injuries. He was also knocked out in the 2nd quarter of Week 7 with a chest injury.
  • His scoring averages in his 14 healthy games would have ranked 14th among RBs in PPR points, 17th in half-PPR and 18th in non-PPR.
  • Jacobs benefitted from Kenyan Drake’s absence over the final 5 games of the season.
    • Jacobs averaged 18.6 carries and 3.8 targets on a 69.1% snap rate across those 5 games.
    • He averaged 13.1 carries and 4.7 targets on a 63.1% snap rate over his 9 healthy games with Drake.
  • Among 50 RBs with 100+ carries last year, Jacobs ranked 10th in Pro Football Focus’ rushing grades and 8th in Elusive Rating.
  • He finished 28th in PFF receiving grade and 25th in yards per route run among 51 RBs with 30+ targets.
  • Jacobs’ 9 rushing TDs last year ranked 8th league-wide.
  • He tied for 4th with 12 rushing scores in 2020 and tied for 13th with 7 as a rookie in 2019.
  • Jacobs has ranked 13th, 4th and 7th among RBs in carries inside the 5-yard line over the past 3 seasons.
  • New HC Josh McDaniels in March called Jacobs a back who “can play on all 3 downs.”
  • After that, the Raiders declined Jacobs’ 5th-year option, signed RBs Brandon Bolden and Ameer Abdullah and spent a 4th-round pick on RB Zamir White. Drake also returns for 2022.
  • None of those guys looks like a real threat to Jacobs’ starting job. But the moves might be a sign that McDaniels is planning to deploy a committee backfield.
    • McDaniels spent 13 seasons under HC Bill Belichick in New England, where the Patriots regularly deployed frustrating committees.
  • The 2021 Raiders ranked 29th in Pro Football Focus’ pass-blocking grades and 17th in Football Outsiders’ Adjusted Line Yards. They’ll get G Denzelle Good back after he tore an ACL in last year’s opener but otherwise return a similar O-line.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Jacobs produced as a mid-range RB2 in 14 healthy games last season – similar to what he did over his first 2 NFL campaigns.

He’s a good bet to maintain lead duties in Vegas this year. But new HC Josh McDaniels has a long history of deploying committee backfields in New England, so there’s a chance Jacobs loses more work to other backs, namely Kenyan Drake and rookie Zamir White.

Jacobs probably won’t kill you as a RB2. But he’s also unlikely to be a real difference maker.

Jacobs overcomes illness to control backfield

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs shook off an illness that rendered him questionable for Sunday's game and again dominated backfield work. He handled 13 of Las Vegas' 16 RB carries and beat Brandon Bolden 6-2 in targets. Bolden was the only other RB to see the field. He trailed Jacobs by 20 total snaps and 9 routes. Jacobs ran for a decent 66 yards on his 13 attempts and caught 5 balls for 31 yards. He narrowly missed reaching the end zone on a 2nd-quarter run that set up Davante Adams' short TD catch.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (illness) will play vs. the Titans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jacobs evidently felt good enough after working out pregame.

Dynasty Write-up
While it hasn't always been pretty, Jacobs has finished 16th, 14th and 14th among RBs in PPR points per game through 3 NFL seasons. And he's still just 24 years old. Vegas didn't pick up Jacobs' 5th-year option, though, so there's a good chance he's playing elsewhere in 2023.
