Josh Jacobs selected No. 24 by Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders have selected running back Josh Jacobs with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Josh Jacobs is heading to Oakland. With Marshawn Lynch retiring, the Raiders land their top rated running back. Jacobs' raw totals do not standout, but his analytics are another story. Jacobs posted 4.07 yards after contact per attempt, and forced 0.26 missed tackles per attempt in 2018. The ultimate tape over production back, Jacobs was mired in an extremely talented Alabama backfield. Jacobs is in line for the lead back role, and should vie for high end RB2 value as a rookie.

Josh Jacobs visits Ravens on Thursday

Alabama running back Josh Jacobs visited the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

It's a weak draft class for running backs but many consider Jacobs to be the best of the group. The Ravens brought in Mark Ingram in free agency but apparently aren't done looking for help at running back. Baltimore figures to be one of the run-heaviest teams in the league this season. Jacobs' arrival would obviously be a hit to Ingram's fantasy value.

Josh Jacobs to be limited at combine

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Alabama RB Josh Jacobs (groin) will be limited at the combine with a groin injury.

Fantasy Impact

Jabos is dealing with a lingering groin injury that will limit him at the combine in Indianapolis. Per Rapoport, the injury is "nothing major," but it will knock him out of several drills.
