Josh Jacobs receives franchise tag from Raiders

The Raiders have officially placed the franchise tag on RB Josh Jacobs.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs was set to hit the open market this year if the Raiders didn't do anything, but they avoided that by using their franchise tag on him. That keeps him in Las Vegas for at least one more year, but he will hit free agency again next year if they can't reach an agreement on a long-term deal. His fantasy value for next year should remain relatively consistent to where it's been, as he's not going to get the change of scenery that some thought he would.

Josh Jacobs to receive franchise tag if deal isn't reached

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Las Vegas Raiders are expected to place the franchise tag on RB Josh Jacobs if a long-term deal isn't reached by the tag deadline.

Fantasy Impact

The deadline to place a franchise tag is March 7, but placing the tag gives the Raiders exclusive rights to work on a long-term deal until July 15. Jacobs led the NFL in rushing yards in 2022-23 with 1,653 yards and 12 touchdowns. Jacobs could see continued heavy usage if he stays in Las Vegas after the team moved on from QB Derek Carr.

Josh Jacobs will play against the Chiefs Saturday

Josh Jacobs will suit up for the Raiders in their Week 18 matchup against the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs was dealing with a hip and oblique injury that had him sidelined in practice Wednesday. The veteran running back also spent time in Tulsa this week dealing with a personal matter after his father had emergency heart surgery. Jacobs is a definite RB1 in the Raiders' matchup with the Chiefs Saturday.

Josh Jacobs rebounds with strong effort in Week 17

Josh Jacobs rushed 17 times for 69 yards with a TD and added four catches for 26 yards off five targets in the Raiders' OT loss on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs wasn't incredibly productive, averaging 4.1 yards per carry, but his volume and a late TD helped fantasy managers leaning on him in their season finales. Jacobs will look to secure the rushing title next week when the Raiders host the Chiefs.
