Raiders Beat: RB Jalen Richard will lose receptions

Raiders beat writer Vic Tafur's assessment for Jalen Richard for this season, "Gruden said Richard reminds the coach of Charlie Garner and is deserving of a bigger role. And then he drafts Josh Jacobs in the first round to be a three-down back. Richard will probably split backup carries with Doug Martin and will lose a good chunk of those 68 catches last year to Jacobs. "

Fantasy Impact: 

Richard should continue to be the preferred receiving back over Doug Martin, but as long as Josh Jacobs stays on the field all three downs, Tafur's prediction will be spot on and a good reason to like Jacobs this year.
