RB - FA
Week 13 Outlook
Jalen Richard had a workout with the Steelers on Friday.
The Steelers are perpetually in search of reliable backups for Najee Harris, so they are working out multiple backs right now, Richard included. The veteran had an extremely minimal role with the Raiders last year, but has 191 catches for 1,590 yards in his career, and is a decent third-down back. If he signs with the Steelers, it's unlikely that he'd have a huge role given Harris's workload, but he'd be worth monitoring in deep PPR formats.
Las Vegas Raiders RB Jalen Richard has been activated off of the reserve/COVID list and will be available for the Raiders tilt on Saturday.
Richard will be available Saturday but with Josh Jacobs healthy Richard will likely just slot in as the primary backup as Kenyan Drake has since been moved to the IR.
The Raiders placed RB Jalen Richard on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
He won't play in Sunday's Week 13 game against the Washington Football Team. Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake will handle running back duties for the Raiders.
Raiders RB Jalen Richard has returned to practice. The Raiders have 21 days to activate him or keep him on IR.
Richard suffered a foot injury in early August. Prior to the injury Richard acted as the Raiders’ third-down back to Josh Jacobs, but the team added running backs Kenyan Drake and Peyton Barber this off-season, making it hard to imagine a role for Richard to become fantasy relevant. Barring injuries, he offers little to no fantasy value in a very deep backfield.
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.
