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 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Green Bay Packers
The Raiders had a bye in Week 6.

The Packers are good against quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends but they have been vulnerable to running backs. They are sixth-worst against running backs, per our signature schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric but ninth-best against wide receivers. They are a perfect example of a run funnel defense. 4for4 rankings expert, John Paulsen, has Jacobs ranked as the half PPR RB12. The Raiders are only implied for 20 points but Jacobs could still produce top 12 running back numbers this week.
