I remember last year when Jacobs was going as a late first-round pick, though I wanted nothing to do with him at that price due to his lack of involvement in the passing game the previous season. Nothing changed except they added more pass catchers. He did get a slight bump in targets (45), though nothing you could rely upon every week. What's changed this offseason? The Raiders decided to pay Kenyan Drake a good chunk of money to come in and share the workload with Jacobs, forcing his fantasy stock to plummet. Drake was essentially the same running back as Jacobs last year, though we've seen him produce in the passing game before. Did the addition of Drake drop Jacobs' price too far, or is this a backfield to simply avoid if possible? I believe he's fallen enough to consider a value as a low-end RB2 who should see be in line for 250-plus touches. The expectations were out of control last year, but if you can get him in the fifth round this year, I'm buying.Despite Nick Chubb getting hurt and missing 4.5 games, Hunt failed to meet expectations in 2020. Sure, he finished as a top-10 running back at season's end, but if you were to ask his managers, they'd tell you he was a flex-type option. He finished as an RB2 or better in just 56.3 percent of games in PPR formats, which was slightly behind Miles Sanders and slightly ahead of Ronald Jones. His value was arguably better with Chubb on the field last year, so maybe it's a matter of keeping him fresh? Whatever the case, Hunt should be a strong RB3/flex option who has 20-touch upside should Chubb miss time.

The free agent signing of Kenyan Drake this offseason was a perplexing move by the same Raiders team that invested a 1st round pick in Josh Jacobs. Jacobs should still get the bulk of the carries, but this is hardly good news. And if that's not bad enough, the Raiders lost some key linemen in the offseason. The silver (and black) lining is that you can get Jacobs cheaper in 2021.Hunt is in a RBBC. So the good news is he at least has stand alone value. And, If anything happens to Nick Chubb you're in business. Possible league winner, but you have to get him at a good price.
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
The Good: If you pressed fast forward on the 2020 season and just looked at end of year stats, you might be extremely happy with the output you got from Jacobs. The second year back ended the season as an RB1 in PPR formats (10th), saw 8.2% of his teams targets, and improved across virtually every pass-catching category from his rookie season. He also got the work where it counts most in fantasy with 68 red zone opportunities, the most in the NFL. Jacobs turned those touches into 12 TDs, 4th most in the NFL. Outside of those numbers, however, I would be reaching to give you any more good news about Jacobs. The Bad: There is no way to put this mildly, Jacobs had one of the most wildly inefficient seasons in football last season. He basically pulled a Mixon™. Jacobs' TDs were his saving grace but, as the saying goes, TDs are the hardest factor to predict year-to-year in fantasy football. Removing the TDs from the equation really reveals how bad he was. Jacobs' .448 points per opportunity excluding TDs (PPOxTD) was good for a mind-blowingly awful 101st in the NFL. Meanwhile, while he produced -1.6 fantasy points over expected (FPTS oX), ranking him amongst the scrubs of the NFL at 114th. Furthermore, his 3.6 yards per carry was 82nd in the NFL and his four big plays (20 yards or more) was tied for 36th in the NFL with his teammate Devontae Booker, who broke off the same amount of big plays in about 1/3rd of the opportunities. In fact, in the 296 times Josh Jacobs touched the ball last season, he recorded exactly ZERO plays of over 30 yards. The most telling stat of all though my be his Rushing Yards over expected. Looking at his RYOE chart (exclusive to the Fantasy Football by BRoto app), after the fist several touches, Josh Jacobs never reached a point during the season where he had more yards than expected, dropping more than 100 yards below expected at multiple junctures in 2020. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
There were certainly positives from Jacobs' 2020 season, including that he scored 12 touchdowns and carried the ball 273 times, each third-most in the NFL among running backs. But ask any fantasy manager who rostered him and he or she will tell you that it never felt comfortable, even if Jacobs did finish as an RB1 in fantasy. Preseason chatter of a massive increased role in the passing game was pure fluff (he received just 45 targets on the year), and there was, of course, his Instagram hoax about not playing in Week 14. Now, he'll share running back work with Kenyan Drake, and the best-case scenario is that Jacobs handles the rushing down work while Drake comes on for passing downs, as Jon Gruden has suggested. That should leave Jacobs as a weak RB2 in half-PPR formats, one who needs consistent work around the goal-line to have significant value. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Kareem Hunt's season last year is really the tale of two halves. From Weeks 1-8, Hunt was the RB7 in all of fantasy football. However, Weeks 9-17, Hunt was the RB17 through that time frame. With Nick Chubb back in the lineup, Hunt was certainly still involved, but he did very little with his opportunity. He's a bit of a mystery heading into 2021 and his ADP should reflect that. Fantasy managers might be skeptical on adding him to their rosters as anything more than a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3, but if you can get him for that price tag, that's a worthy investment. Anything more than that and you might be disappointed with what you get. My Very Early Projection: 153-689-4 rushing & 41-339-2 receiving.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Jacobs had 214.8 fantasy points, but it took 306 touches and 12 TDS for him to reach that total. He is a RB1 based on usage, not efficiency and it remains to be seen if the Raiders try to lighten the workload for him in 2021 with the addition of Kenyan Drake.Hunt was the 10th ranked fantasy back this year with 199.5 fantasy points, but he also benefited from Nicholas Chubb missing 4 games. He should still have a significant role in 2021, but he is more of a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3 if Chubb stays healthy the entire season.

Even more uninspiring w/ Kenyan Drake added for a decent price. Lowers already small receiving upside.
