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 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Josh Jacobs had 77 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Chiefs before the bye last week. He had 25 touches, including a pair of receptions for eight additional yards, and is now averaging 24.2 touches per game. If Jacobs can stay healthy through that kind of workload, he’s an excellent high-floor option in all fantasy leagues as a weekly option.

This week, Jacobs faces a tough Buccaneers defense that ranks fourth in aFPA to opposing running backs. Jacobs is productive, and gets enough touches to make him a must-start every week, regardless of matchup. Against this defense, however, temper expectations and think of him more in the RB2 category rather than the steady RB1 he usually is.
