Raiders have no plans to trade holdout RB Jacobs

Despite speculation to the contrary, the Las Vegas Raiders reportedly have no interest in trading disgruntled star running back JOSH JACOBS. Also in contrast to previous reports about Jacobs reporting toMore the team before Week #1, no deal is believed to be imminent and Jacobs’ status for the season opener is still very much up in the air. Second-year reserve ZAMIR WHITE has been handling the Raiders RB1 duties in Jacobs’ absence. At this point, Jacobs could find himself splitting carries with White in the season opener even if he does return to the team in the days ahead. Stay tuned, fantasy owners. Less

Raiders sign RB Williams to add backfield depth

The Las Vegas Raiders are adding running back depth by signing veteran rusher DAMIEN WILLIAMS. With JOSH JACOBS still holding out, Williams will join fellow running backs ZAMIR WHITE and AMEERMore ABDULLAH on the roster.

Around the NFL: Josh Jacobs

It looks like I'm going to have Josh Jacobs on a lot of teams this year. Every story that comes out about him is negative, with a new one every day. What's interesting is that none of them actually have anything to do with him, but with people's expectations about the Raiders backfield.   more »


Around the NFL: Las Vegas Raiders

Football is back, like it was never away. Jacksonville didn't use any starters, but the Raiders did, which caused much discussion and debate over how the backfield might be utilized in the new, Josh McDaniels era. Most notably, we need to wonder how much we can trust in Josh Jacobs.   more »


Factoid: Day 3 running backs
