2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
A year ago, the Raiders were so unimpressed by Jacobs that they decided not to pick up his fifth-year option after he managed just 872 yards in 2021. That was a miscalculation. Under new head coach Josh McDaniels, Jacobs became the focal point of Las Vegas' offense, and he responded by setting career highs in carries (340), rushing yards (1,653 -- that led the NFL), and receiving yards (400). He also caught 53 passes and matched a personal best with a dozen touchdowns.

It was a redemptive season for the Alabama product, and not surprisingly the Raiders wound up having to use the franchise tag to keep him off the market. That's made things a bit dicey for 2023, as Jacobs and the team couldn't agree on a long-term deal, and there are rumblings that he could hold out through training camp and possibly into the regular season as well. There's also a possibility that his heavy workload last year, where he logged 393 combined touches, could cause durability problems, which is something we saw last year with Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor.

Assuming he decides to sign his franchise tender and not miss regular season action, Jacobs enters 2023 as a solid RB1. While the issue of last year's heavy usage is real, he's only 25 and has been mostly durable during his four seasons.

News From The Past 90 Days
No RBs expected to the get the franchise tag
Deep free agent RB class in 2024
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Feb 26, 2:53 pm

New York Giants
This offseason stands in contrast to 2023, when Josh Jacobs, Saquon Barkley, Tony Pollard received franchise tags. This offseason, it appears no RBs will be tagged, making this one of the finest and deepest RB classes in the history of free agency. (Adam Schefter on X)

FFToday's Take: The 2024 free agent RB class is stacked with Jacobs, Barkley, Pollard, Derrick Henry and Austin Ekeler. The question is, what kind of deals are these veterans going to get? We've seen the market slowly dry up for veteran RBs over the last few years with Jacobs and Barkley settling for one-year deals just last season. Alvin Kamara and Aaron Jones are also cut candidates given the money their going to count against the salary cap this season.


Injury Josh Jacobs not expected to play in Week 15
Zamir White expected to start
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 14, 4:25 pm

Las Vegas Raiders
#Raiders RB Josh Jacobs, listed as questionable with a quad, is going to be out tonight vs the #Chargers, per me and @MikeGarafolo. Jacobs didn’t practice this week. Zamir White is slated to be the starter. (Ian Rapoport on X)

FFToday's Take: Some of the beat writers suggested that Jacobs may have been able to play this week if the Raiders played on Sunday. That's a good indication that he'll be back in Week 16 to face the Chiefs. White and Ameer Abdullah will handle the running back work this evening and have a good matchup against a Chargers-D that's given up the 6th most fantasy points to running backs.


Injury Josh Jacobs nursing knee injury
DNP on Monday; likely in doubt for TNF in Week 15
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 11, 11:30 pm

Las Vegas Raiders
The #Raiders listed RB Josh Jacobs as a non-participant on Monday's estimated injury report with a quad injury. They play the #Chargers on Thursday night. (NFL Network - Tom Pelissero)

FFToday's Take: Las Vegas has yet to reveal what exactly Jacobs is dealing with, but it is likely a bone bruise and/or right knee hyperextension. While it is important to note that Monday was an estimated report, Jacobs walked with enough of a limp following Sunday's injury that it might be a stretch for him to play on Thursday against the Chargers. If Jacobs has to miss TNF against the Chargers, Zamir White would be the overwhelming favorite for early-down work and possibly around 15 carries. Ameer Abdullah would likely handle most of the work on passing downs.
