2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Former first round NFL Draft pick Josh Jacobs was able to stay relatively healthy which allowed him to finish as a mid-level RB1 in both standard scoring and PPR fantasy leagues in 2020. While many fantasy owners were disappointed that he didn't provide a truly league-winning performance in his second season, it's tough to be too hard on Jacobs, as he was actually fairly efficient given the horrendous run blocking that was in front of him. It would've been easy, in fact, to slot Jacobs in as an easy second-round pick in fantasy drafts this season if the Raiders hadn't brought in significant competition for touches, in the form of former Arizona and Miami running back Kenyan Drake. Now there appears to be significantly more concern, and rightfully so.

Jacobs owners should be particularly worried about Drake because there's much more of an overlap between these two backs' skill sets than might meet the eye. One area that is particularly worrisome, if you're a Jacobs owner, is the goal line. Drake quietly finished second among all running backs in 2020 with 19 goal line carries, holding teammate Chase Edmonds to just one of those such touches on the season. Drake was able to convert those carries into 10 rushing touchdowns on the year - eighth-most among all running backs. Jacobs, meanwhile, saw 16 goal line carries which was good enough for third among all running backs. Jacobs converted at a higher rate than Drake did as he scored 12 touchdowns on the year, but the obvious concern is that Jacobs and Drake could end up splitting goal line carries in an already relatively low-volume Raiders offense.

With touchdowns buoying both backs' season-long finishes, it's hard to believe that either Jacobs or Drake will finish 2021 with as many points as they accumulated in 2020 unless the other one goes down with a multi-week injury.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Raiders rule out Josh Jacobs for Week 2
Gruden talks up Peyton Barber
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 17, 3:32 pm

Las Vegas Raiders
Interesting from Gruden, when asked about the opportunity for Kenyan Drake with Josh Jacobs out: "We're excited about the opportunity for Peyton Barber. We really like Peyton Barber." #Raiders (Vic Tafur on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Gruden talking up Peyton Barber is interesting and worthy of a chuckle at the same time but most likely Drake will come out of this game with the most fantasy points between the two running backs. Jacobs (toe) was obviously hobbled in the Raiders Week 1 game against the Ravens.


Injury Josh Jacobs downgraded to Questionable, illness
Monday night game against Baltimore

Las Vegas Raiders
#Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (illness) has been downgraded to questionable for tomorrow’s game vs. Baltimore. (Vic Tafur on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Kenyan Drake could see increased usage if Jacobs sits but at this time we don't have a good read on the severity of the illness. Stay tuned...
