RB17 and RB8, respectively, in first 2 seasons, and no reason to think he won't be Top 20 RB again with Raiders' offensive upgrades 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
6/14: Rumbings Jacobs is not viewed as a "feature" guy, & he himself says he doesn't want to be. Patriots Hell invades this backfield and the already unsexy Jacobs gets less apealing 5/15 - They scoop a bunch of RBs (Bolden, Zamir White) & don't pick up 5th year.Could ride him into ground, or could groom his successor5/15: Among the biggest losers of the 2022 Offseason - 2 new RBs added, Stevenson already had better flashes, James White returns. Immense TD upside, but far riskier
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
The Raiders offense looks to reach new heights in 2022 with No. 1 wide receiver Davante Adams added to the fold. And that greatly benefits the team's lead ball-carrier Josh Jacobs. A more efficient offense lends itself to more scoring opportunities, and Jacobs will reap the most rewards as the team's primary red-zone back. Last year's RB13 smashed career highs in all receiving categories in 2021 despite playing alongside Kenyan Drake and Jalen Richard. Injuries to the back-ups boosted Jacobs' role as a receiver slightly, but it was not the only cause. There was a deliberate effort to feature Jacobs more as a receiver with him catching at least two passes in 12 of his 15 games played. And more importantly, the receiving capability that Jacobs displayed puts to rest the narrative that he is "game-script" dependent. Whether the Raiders are winning or losing in a loaded 2022 AFC West, JJ has proven he can be used in all facets. Now the Raiders did elect to sign both Brandon Bolden and Ameer Abdullah this offseason to bolster their running back stable behind Jacobs. Bolden has been a special teams guy nearly his entire career, so I doubt he carves out any legitimate role on offense. Abdullah has been used as a third-down back on the several teams he has been on at the NFL level, but I am not ready to declare him as a huge threat to Jacobs' workload. Sure he might work in some, but not enough to hurt Jacobs' bottom-line value. The team also drafted Zamir White in the fourth round, but I would not expect much from White in year one based on Josh McDaniels' track record from New England of not featuring Day 3 rookie RBs. The new head coach is more likely to run Jacobs into the ground on an expiring contract as he did with Dion Lewis, LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen during his Patriots tenure. And besides, the red-zone role is the most significant for fantasy points, and that looks to be clearly in Jacobs' grasp. Two-down back Damien Harris was in the red-zone role for the Patriots last season and flourished because of it. He ranked fourth in carries (46) and third in rushing TDs (13) from inside the 20-yard line.Damien Harris' ADP has dropped nearly a full round since the NFL draft took place and it's unwarranted. All the Patriots did was draft two Day 3 running backs who will most likely be red-shirted their first seasons. Harris should be the bellcow back for the Patriots in the final year of his contract as has been the case for many New England backs playing on expiring contracts. And should he see a heavy workload, there's going to be fantasy points to come by. In 2021, Harris finished 2nd in carries inside the 10-yd line, second to only Jonathan Taylor. The former Alabama back also led all running backs during the 2021 regular season in fantasy points per snap. As PFF's highest-graded running back (91.8) over the past two seasons, Harris needs to be held in extremely high regard. With one more year on his rookie deal, New England has all the incentive to ride Harris for the entire 2022 season. Although there is some risk that he will be used in a 50/50 split with second-year back Rhamondre Stevenson. Stevenson (93) and Harris (86) split touches nearly 50/50 in the team's remaining seven games. In the six games they played together, Stevenson slightly edged out Harris in expected fantasy points per game (9.3 vs 8.9).
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Jacobs has been a good fantasy back, but he has not been able to post an elite season. He finished the 2021 fantasy season with 1,076 yards from scrimmage and 8 touchdowns. Josh McDaniels calling plays could help him realize his full potential, but he is still more of a RB2 than RB1.Harris had a fantastic third season with 988 yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns. While the emergence of Rhamondre Stevenson could hamper his 2022 outlook, Harris figures to be the lead back in the backfield in 2022 and a good RB2 / flex option.
