Las Vegas Raiders decline fifth year option on Josh Jacobs

Per Adam Schefter on Twitter, the Las Vegas Raiders have declined to pick up the fifth-year contract option for Josh Jacobs.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs has had a rather up and down career with the Raiders through four years in the league. The fourth year running back has yet to play a full season due to a plethora of different injuries that seem to come his way. Once considered a potential bell-cow running back, Jacobs will now likely be looking for a new home in 2023 along with the fact that he is likely to split more touches this season with Kenyan Drake so long as he too stays healthy.

Josh Jacobs gets all but one RB touch in Wild Card loss

Josh Jacobs had 13 carries for 83 yards on Saturday, while also hauling in four of his five targets for 44 yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact

As per the last few weeks, Jacobs was the pure workhorse in this one seeing 17 of the team's 18 running back touches. Jacobs should have a ton of value going into next season, especially if the Raiders opt to keep him as their primary third-down back.

Josh Jacobs (ribs) limited in Wednesday's practice

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs was a limited participant in Wednesday's walk through with a rib injury.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs had a great game in Week 18 against the Chargers with 26 carries for 132 yards in the matchup. He also logged limited practices throughout the week leading up to the contest with the Chargers. You can assume he should suit up and that this week should not be any different then last, but we should still monitor throughout the week to ensure he does suit up. The Bengals have allowed 133 rushing yards per game to opposing teams in the past three games, so if Jacobs suits up he should be able to produce enough to be a viable DFS or playoff fantasy option.

Josh Jacobs torches Chargers defense en route to win

Josh Jacobs saw a tremendous 26 carries on Sunday night, totally 132 rushing yards while also finding the endzone once. He would also tack on two catches for 12 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Jacobs took advantage of a porous Chargers front-seven and simply carried the Raiders at times during the ball game. The Chargers simply could not tackle Jacobs without him gaining at least four yards. Even more so with the game on the line when he Raiders handed the ball to Jacobs on third-down. Jacobs not only got the first, but also got the Raiders in field goal range for the eventual game-winning field goal. The matchup against Cincinnati next week isn't as good as the Chargers, but the volume Jacobs sees keeps him in consideration for DFS.
