Returning from lost season to ACL injury, worth a reminder that he averaged 6 YPC and rushed for 9 TDs in 134 carries as a rookie in 2020RB17 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: Rumblings he'll start year "slow" and have reps "managed" gives him a considerable downgrade / added risk, even w/ stretch-run winning upside 5/15: Big draft day winner w/ minimal competition added + line beefed up + moves suggesting a run-obsessed 2022 attack6/14: 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 successor
Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
Running backs tied to a mobile quarterback are often short-changed when it comes to the passing game. For as well as J.K. Dobbins performed in fantasy football from Weeks 11-17 in full PPR (RB11) during the 2020 season, guess who outscored him... J.D. McKissic. That's because McKissic caught 37 passes versus Dobbins' three. Guys like Derrick Henry can overcome the lack of receiving work because they are entrenched bell cows, but that's not the case with Dobbins in Baltimore with Gus Edwards also in the mix. Dobbins only slightly out-touched Edwards 86-74 down the stretch in 2020. It would be pure ignorance to assume that Dobbins will take over the backfield considering Edwards has been excellent with every opportunity he has received. Dobbins also ran extremely hot when it came to scoring touchdowns, scoring at least one TD in every game from Week 11 on. His nine total rushing TDs ranked 12th in the league and nearly doubled his expected output (5.5, 30th) - the sixth-highest difference at the position. Drafters have to understand that to invest in Dobbins as a late third-rounder or fourth-rounder (RB20, 50th overall ADP) he needs to run hot in the TD category coming off the season-ending ACL injury. They also should expect zero-to-little pass-game work with Jackson's tendency to not check down along with the additions of receiving backs, veteran Mike Davis and rookie Tyler Badie.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.

FantasyPros
The only solid development in Dobbins tearing his ACL in the final preseason game of 2021 is that he will likely have enough time to rehab and be ready for the start of 2022. Dobbins will be looking to build on a 2020 rookie campaign that saw him tally 925 yards from scrimmage and 9 touchdowns.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.
