Fantasy Impact:

Josh Jacobs is heading to Oakland. With Marshawn Lynch retiring, the Raiders land their top rated running back. Jacobs' raw totals do not standout, but his analytics are another story. Jacobs posted 4.07 yards after contact per attempt, and forced 0.26 missed tackles per attempt in 2018. The ultimate tape over production back, Jacobs was mired in an extremely talented Alabama backfield. Jacobs is in line for the lead back role, and should vie for high end RB2 value as a rookie.
