Around the NFL: Josh Jacobs

I’m not a big Josh Jacobs fan. Even less so, now that I’m seeing stories suggesting Jacobs might not be signed before the start of training camp.  more »



Washington odd man out in Oakland?

Oakland running back DEANDRE WASHINGTON has seen his role and production decline since his rookie season with the Raiders. Heading into the 2019 season, the Raiders drafted Alabama rookie JOSH JACOBSMore in the first-round while also bringing back veteran DOUG MARTIN. With pass-catching back JALEN RICHARD and CHRIS WARREN III also in the mix, Washington has limited fantasy appeal even if he makes the team. Less

Following this week’s season-ending injury to running back ISAIAH CROWELL, the Oakland Raiders are bringing back veteran DOUG MARTIN. Martin was the team’s leading rusher last season, but the Raiders letMore the 30-year-old back walk into free agency.

Around the NFL: Crusher for Crowell

Isaiah Crowell has never been a particularly exciting player. But he's been better than you might think, averaging 4.3 yards per carry for his career and going over 1,000 total yards twice for a bad Browns team. But his Oakland season is over before it began: he tore his Achilles at a workout yesterday, and is done for the year.   more »


Factoid: Alabama running backs

The general consensus is that Josh Jacobs is the best of the Alabama running backs. But why is that? It seems reasonable that Damien Harris, picked two rounds later, might end up having a better pro career.   more »


Factoid: Josh Jacobs

I’m not a big Josh Jacobs fan. He’ll be a starter, and I suppose that makes him one of the first 20 running backs who should be drafted in a typical fantasy draft. But I don’t think he’ll hit it big.   more »


Ian Allan: An off year

For fantasy purposes an underwhelming first round. Running back and wide receiver tend to be the key positions in our little game, and in that regard, it’s the worst first round I can remember.   more »

The Oakland Raiders selected the first running back of the 2019 NFL Draft on Thursday night when they took Alabama’s JOSH JACOBS with the 24th overall pick. Jacobs joins a crowded backfield in Oakland, although he could see plenty of carries in light of MARSHAWN LYNCH’s retirement.


Andy Richardson: Josh Jacobs, Part II

A few days ago I ran a Josh Jacobs-related item about running backs in their final year of college. The gist was that most running backs drafted in the first three rounds have put up big numbers in their final seasons, while Jacobs played in a tandem with Damien Harris. Jacobs will be selected early, but some teams may hesitate. But they've got to be intrigued by the overall potential.   more »


Andy Richardson: Running backs, final year of college

Josh Jacobs is expected to be the first running back chosen in the NFL Draft later this month. It's not a given, however, that he'll be a first-round pick, certainly not selected as early as Saquon Barkley, Leonard Fournette and Ezekiel Elliott in recent years. He'll be drafted by the end of Day 2, certainly, despite a relative lack of college production.   more »
