RB - LV
Expert NoteView More Notes
We've continually heard that Jacobs is going to be more heavily involved in the passing game, though that never materialized last year, seeing just 27 targets in 13 games played. Then we heard, "we're going to involve him more in 2020." They then re-signed Jalen Richard, added Henry Ruggs, and Lynn Bowden. It's not looking likely that Jacobs sees the 50-plus targets he deserves, which lowers him down the rankings. The overall offense should improve, giving him more scoring opportunities, but relying on touchdowns is a tricky thing. He's best-suited as a high-end RB2 who has RB1 upside if they follow through on the promise to use him more in the passing game.

Josh Jacobs to be more heavily involved in passing game
Raiders general manager Mike Mayock told ESPN that he expects running back Josh Jacobs to be more involved in the passing game in his second season.
One of the limiting factors for Jacobs in 2019 was the fact that he came off the field a lot for third downs and in passing situations. If that changes, he could vault into elite RB1 territory. He could still be limited by the offense in general, but as a true workhorse he would likely see the volume needed to be an elite fantasy running back. He's currently the RB11 in our early expert consensus rankings.
