2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
A first-round pick in 2019, Jacobs has watched his rushing yardage dip each season, going from 1,150 yards as a rookie down to 872 last year (despite playing in two more games). The Raiders effectively put the Alabama product on notice by not exercising his fifth-year option, meaning he'll be playing for his financial future in 2022, which is always a powerful motivator. How much he'll be featured under new head coach Josh McDaniels remains to be seen, however, as the longtime Patriots offensive coordinator oversaw the addition of a lot of new pieces on offense.

One thing working in Jacobs' favor is his improved work as a receiver out of the backfield, posting a career-high 54 receptions for 348 yards last year; he has yet to find the end zone as a pass catcher, though, logging 107 catches without a score in his three-year career. The addition of Adams, who is another high-volume receiver, is a bit of a Catch-22 for Jacobs as the running back will likely see less attention defensively, but at the same time that's another very large mouth for Carr to feed.

Even though his production has dipped, Jacobs' averages of 1,280 total yards and 9.3 TDs per season with the Raiders are still solid. That seems like a reasonable target for 2022 as well, which makes Jacobs well cast as a quality RB3 or maybe even a low-end RB2, depending on league size.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Josh Jacobs expected to play
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 4, 11:58 am

Las Vegas Raiders
Raiders’ RB Josh Jacobs, listed as questionable for today due to his calf injury, will play today vs. the Chargers, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jacobs has been dealing with his calf injury for two weeks but is apparently going to play this week. The injury didn't hurt his production last week as he finished with a 33-229-2, 6-74-0 line. He's an RB1 in Week 13.


Josh Jacobs unlikely to practice all week
Played through calf strain and logged 39 touches in Week 12
By: Doug Orth | Tue Nov 29, 7:00 pm

Las Vegas Raiders
Raiders RB Josh Jacobs is not expected to practice much, if at all this week because of his calf strain, per sources. He’ll get around-the-clock treatment in hopes of playing Sunday against the Chargers. (NFL Network - Tom Pelissero)

FFToday's Take: Jacobs initially suffered the injury during practice late last week and was listed as questionable, but that didn't keep Josh McDaniels from loading him up with 33 carries or Derek Carr from throwing it to him six more times in Week 12. The fact that Las Vegas is already certain it may hold him out of practice all week suggests he should be considered questionable at best for Week 13 against a soft Chargers' run defense. Jacobs has overall RB1 upside for that matchup if he can play, while rookie Zamir White would be in the RB1 conversation if Jacobs sits.


Injury Josh Jacobs added to injury report, Questionable
Calf injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 25, 5:40 pm

Las Vegas Raiders
Josh Jacobs must have tweaked his calf at practice. Was limited today and is questionable for Sunday. #Raiders (Vic Tafur on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Not great Bob. Jacobs has been a RB1 most of the season acting as the Raiders workhorse in the backfield. He's seen 20-plus carries five times this season and is averaging over 3 targets per game. Brandon Bolden and Ameer Abdullah are next up on the depth chart. Which should get more information on Jacobs' status this weekend.


Injury Josh Jacobs a gametime decision
Flew separately to Nashville to due illness
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Sep 25, 9:16 am

Las Vegas Raiders
Raiders’ RB Josh Jacobs, who flew separately from the team to Tennessee due to an illness and is listed as questionable for today, will work out in pregame warmups to determine his availability. There is optimism he will be ready to play, but no decision until pregame warmups. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: It sounds like Jacobs is leaning towards playing, but if he is ultimately ruled out, the Raiders are likely to go with some king of committee with Brandon Bolden, Zamir White and Ameer Abdullah all taking part.


Injury Josh Jacobs not traveling with team to Nashville
Illness, listed as Questionable
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 23, 5:24 pm

Las Vegas Raiders
Also, while RB Josh Jacobs (illness) is officially QUESTIONABLE, he is not traveling with the #Raiders to Nashville today. Linebacker Denzel Perryman and receiver Hunter Renfrow were both ruled OUT by the Raiders for Sunday's game at the Titans. (Paul Gutierrez on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Jacobs may fly on his own this weekend if the Raiders want him to play but this obviously a situation worth monitoring closely. Jacobs has missed the last two days of practice due to an illness. If Jacobs were to miss, we're likely to see some combo of Brandon Bolden, Ameer Abdullah and rookie Zamir White - none of which can be counted on in fantasy lineups.
