Josh Jacobs is an extremely interesting pick this season. At his current ADP, he's a safe pick with a decent amount of upside. I'm cool drafting him in that mid third round range...but I'm afraid his ADP will climb a bit when hard knocks is released. At any rate, we know that he's going to be used as the featured back in this offense. Teams always use their RB's when they take them in the early to mid first round, and this is especially so seeing how Jacobs was drafted with the pick they received in the Mack trade. My current projection on him is around 1,200 total yards, and 6.8 total TD's. That comes out to the 21st highest ranking among RB's. I feel comfortable ranking him higher than the RB 21, though, because of the safety. We know that he's going to be used in all aspects of the game, and we know that this offense is going to improve on its number from last season.I'm higher on Drake than most experts are. The way I see it, last season was his floor. The Dolphins finished 26th in points per game, and dead last in plays per game. Despite that, Drake was able to scrap together just over 1,000 total yards and 9 total TD's. The guy finished as the RB 17 in half PPR scoring, while he was in a time share on one of the worst teams in the league. How he was able to finish as the RB 17, on 120 carries, in that offense is impressive. Drake is absolutely the lead back this season, and he's finally going to be used more, now Adam "Drake hater" Gase is finally gone. Given what he was able to do last season, and given the likely improvement for this offense, Drake is being undervalued at his current ADP.

Any time you have a running back drafted inside the first-round of the NFL Draft, you'd better consider him in fantasy football. Why? Over the last six years, first-round running backs have averaged 283.4 touches in their rookie season. While the Raiders aren't likely to be a high-scoring offense, they should be improved significantly with the talent they've added on offense. Jacobs should be a low-end RB2, at worst.He's the most talented running back on the Dolphins roster, though that didn't seem to mean all that much under Adam Gase. With Gase out of town, can Drake get the touches he deserves under new head coach Brian Flores? Most don't realize that despite not topping 17 touches in a game and only hitting more than 10 touches seven times in 2018 that Drake finished as the No. 17 running back. He doesn't offer top-five upside, but he might be a sturdy RB2 in 2019.

There is a massive opportunity share awaiting Jacobs in this OAK offense, both on the ground and through the air.

Jacobs was in a RBBC at Alabama and he had only 120 caries last year, but he is a very talented back that should earn the lead role in Oakland. He is a RB3 with upside.Drake has some of the best big-play ability in the league and the departure of RB Frank Gore should help his fantasy value. The problem is this team has one of the worst quarterback situations in the league, which is going to make Drake's value very dicey is some games.
