Draft note
by John Paulsen
Jacobs should see a big workload in his rookie season. Oakland has roughly 18.2 touches per game vacated by Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin, though the team did re-sign Martin after Isaiah Crowell’s injury. (This is probably a net gain for Jacobs since Crowell is better than Martin at this point.) From 1998-2007, Jon Gruden’s lead backs averaged 266.1 touches on an average of 14.7 games played. That works out to 18.1 touches per game for Gruden’s top back, so assuming Jacobs can keep Jalen Richard at bay on passing downs, he should see 250-280 touches. Moreover, the Oakland offensive line blocked pretty well in the running game last season, finishing No. 13 in Adjusted Line Yards at Football Outsiders. Of this year’s running back draft class, Jacobs easily fared the best in Kevin Zatloukal’s model that predicts a back’s chances of success in his first three seasons.

OAK RB Josh Jacobs - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacobs missed Week 14 with a shoulder injury but is tentatively on track to play this week. Monitor his status closely this weekend because he was surprisingly ruled out last Sunday afternoon.

If Jacobs is given the green light, he will be in a fantastic matchup at home against one of the worst run defenses in the league. The Jaguars are second to last against running backs, per our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Jacobs ranked as a low-end half PPR RB2. Monitor his health status and projection because it may change depending on his health status.
