Any time you have a running back drafted inside the first-round of the NFL Draft, you'd better consider him in fantasy football. Why? Over the last six years, first-round running backs have averaged 283.4 touches in their rookie season. While the Raiders aren't likely to be a high-scoring offense, they should be improved significantly with the talent they've added on offense. Jacobs should be a low-end RB2, at worst.

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.
