2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
An undrafted rookie seemingly stuck behind two other young tailbacks on the Oakland roster, few could have predicted that Jalen Richard would provide the pop as he did in 2016. Richard finished the season with a whopping 5.9 yards per carry average - good enough for second in the NFL among running backs - and was also a productive receiver out of the backfield. While he never carried the ball more than 10 times in a single game and only scored three total touchdowns on the season, Richard was able to provide six double-digit PPR days to his fantasy owners. It appeared as if Richard may have a significant role increase in 2017 when Latavius Murray left in the offseason, but the addition of Marshawn Lynch certainly hurts the upside of both Richard and fellow second-year back DeAndre Washington. Richard's role in the offense shouldn't change substantially, however, as Lynch has never been a great pass catcher. Look for Richard to approach 40 catches this season which, combined with a handful of carries each week, should give him some low-end flex appeal in PPR formats, especially in games when the Raiders fall behind on the scoreboard.

DeAndre Washington clear No.2 RB in Oakland
"Getting all second-team RB reps"
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 4, 2:07 pm

Oakland Raiders
One thing that is flying under radar: DeAndre Washington getting all second-team RB reps over Richard. (Vic Tafur on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Marshawn Lynch is the default top running back in Oakland but given his age and hiatus from the game, Washington makes for an interesting late-round dart through in redraft leagues. Currently he has the leg up on Jalen Richard for backup duties behind Lynch.


Marshawn Lynch to see around 200 carries?
Beast Mode may replicate Latavius Murray's workload
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 24, 8:20 pm

Oakland Raiders
How much does Marshawn Lynch have left in his 31-year-old body after taking a year off? The depth at running back means he won’t have to shoulder a huge load. Something in the range of the 195 carries Latavius Murray had last year should suffice, perhaps less if both DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard see an increase. (The Mercury News)

FFToday's Take: For some reason, early drafters seem to have assumed Lynch would be a featured back, taking him in the middle of the second round on average. The Raiders were obviously happy with the arrangement last season, outside of Murray's inefficiency, so it would be surprising if the Raiders ran Lynch into the ground, especially after a year off. Owners should consider him as a RB2 at best somewhere in the fourth-round area.
