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.
