RB - LV - IR
Week 3 Outlook
Las Vegas Raiders RB Jalen Richard has suffered a foot injury and is out indefinitely. Richard was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier in camp, per Tashan Reed of The Athletic.
Richard is a third-down back, but the team added RB Kenyan Drake, who will take over that role. The Raiders have five RB's on the roster, so they will be okay without having Richard in camp. Richard is still likely to make the team as their third-string RB but offers little to no fantasy value as RB's Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake will carry the load this season.
Las Vegas Raiders running back Jalen Richard has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Richard will miss some of training camp and can't rejoin the team until he passes protocols. The lack of reps hurts him, but with Theo Riddick also out at least he won’t fall too far behind in the battle for the team’s RB3 spot, though it’s doubtful he offers any fantasy value this season.
Jalen Richard brought in all three of his targets for eight yards and rushed once for 14 yards in the Raiders' 36-20 loss to the Patriots Sunday.
Richard is seeing very limited work and is not viable for fantasy.
Jalen Richard had two carries for 26 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' 34-24 win over the Saints Monday night.
Richard is not seeing the passing-down work he has in the past and he holds little fantasy appeal despite posting a score this week.
Jalen Richard brought in his lone target for 15 yards in the Raiders' 34-30 win over the Panthers Sunday.
Richard is not a fantasy factor this season with Devontae Booker working as the primary option behind Josh Jacobs for Las Vegas.
