Draft note
by John Paulsen
Jacobs finished the season as the No. 18 fantasy running back (half-PPR), but he missed three games, so he actually had the No. 13 per game average. He’s currently the 10th back off the board, so the fantasy community is expecting some progress in year two. The Raiders added several weapons in the passing game, which doesn’t project to help Jacobs’ limited role in the passing game. According to PFF, he was 49th among running backs in routes run. Of the backs that finished in the top 20, only Mark Ingram ran fewer routes per game. GM Mike Mayock did say that Jacobs would be “more heavily involved” in the passing game, per ESPN. If Jacobs were able to double his catch total (20) from last year, it would certainly help to raise his weekly floor.

LV RB Josh Jacobs - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Denver Broncos

Josh Jacobs only had 13 carries last week against the Dolphins, despite running very effectively in a close game. It made zero sense for the Raiders to stop running the ball when they were doing it so well, but then, most of what the Raiders did in that game made very little sense. Jacobs is closing in on 1,000 yards and he has 10 touchdowns this season, so he should be motivated to finish the year.

The Broncos rank 29th in aFPA to opposing running backs, so the opportunity is there for Jacobs to go off. Hopefully, the Raiders choose to run him at his usual clip this week so he can catch 1,000 yards. Expect numbers more in line with the rest of his season this week, making him a solid RB1 in all league formats.
