RB - DAL
Week 13 Outlook
Jamize Olawale records one reception for eight yards against the Carolina Panthers.
Olawale has not been given many opportunities this season, but he has still managed to total 17 carries for 47 yards and two touchdowns to go along with nine receptions for 197 yards and one touchdown.
Jamize Olawale carried the ball twice for negative three yards, while adding three receptions for 90 yards and a touchdown.
The Oakland running backs totaled 32 rushing yards against the Texans, luckily their receiving game proved to be more profitable. Olawale turned three catches into 90 yards, the bulk of which came on a 75 yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. The Raiders have continued to prove they will use the running back by committee approach, meaning Olawale is simply a boom or bust candidate for the rest of the season.
Jamize Olawale ran the ball once for four yards, while also failing to reel in his lone target.
Olawale has only had two games with more than one rushing attempt this season, showing the depth of the Raiders backfield. His 15 carries and five receptions leaves him behind three other Raiders running backs in terms of touches. To be clear, Olawale is an NFL guy, not a fantasy guy.
Jamize Olawale rushed six times for 22 yards and caught one pass for two yards on Sunday against the Chargers. He also ran for a touchdown.
Olawale was the only Raiders running back to find the end zone in Week 5, in what was his first extended action of the season. If Latavius Murray remains out in Week 6, Olawale will likely find his way to a few carries, but he's certainly not reliable enough to be started in any league.
Jamize Olawale was on the field for 22 snaps, but only touched the ball once on his lone carry for zero yards.
While being on the field for 34 percent of the Raiders' offensive plays sounds beneficial, Olawale was mainly used a run and pass blocking back. His season total of 3 carries for 13 yards and a touchdown, along with two receptions for 28 yards, illuminates the fact that snap count is not always an accurate statistic to predict production.
