Josh Jacobs was arguably the most valuable fantasy asset during the fantasy football regular season based on his finish as the RB2 overall in relation to his super cheap draft-day ADP. The market was convinced that Jacobs would become part of a dreaded RB-by-committee under new head coach Josh McDaniels, but that was hardly the case. He was a full-blown bellcow for the Raiders leading the NFL in touches through 17 weeks. The 24-year-old is returning to Las Vegas on the franchise tag after leading the NFL with 1,653 rushing yards. With a similar cast of characters returning as depth behind him, it's hard to envision the Raiders not heavily leaning on him again as a true featured back.

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.
