The Oakland Raiders signed offensive guard Richie Incognito to a two-year, $14 million extension on Monday. Incognito, who will be 37 years old next year, will be a "big part" of the team's foundation going forward, according to head coach Jon Gruden. Having Incognito next to Pro Bowl center Rodney Hudson, right guard Gabe Jackson, Pro Bowl right tackle Trent Brown and Kolton Miller is excellent news for running back Josh Jacobs heading into 2020 and beyond. Incognito's five blown blocks on 742 snaps in 2019 was the best rate of any lineman with at least 200 snaps. It's a good story for a player that had been out of football since 2017 due to off-field issues.
Oakland Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Week 17 against the Broncos. Jacobs will end his impressive first year in the NFL with 242 carries for 1,150 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. He added 20 receptions for 166 scoreless yards through the air. His 4.8 yards-per-carry average was impressive, but Jacobs' lack of involvement in the passing game was a bit concerning as a game-flow dependent RB1. Still, Oakland's backfield is in good shape moving forward with Jacobs in the mix. Unless the Raiders start to feed him more looks through the air in his second season, though, he'll be a volatile RB1. Deandre Washington has RB2 and DFS appeal as the lead back for the season finale with Jacobs sidelined.
Oakland Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder), who underwent surgery for a skin infection this week, is not expected to play in Week 17 against the Broncos, according to a source. The impressive rookie will likely end his first season in the NFL with an impressive 1,150 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on 242 carries. He also added 20 receptions for 166 yards. Oakland's ground game is in good hands moving forward if Jacobs can remain healthy. Deandre Washington will have RB2 upside as the primary back this weekend against Denver, with Jalen Richard chipping in on passing downs.
Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs posted videos of himself online Wednesday night after undergoing what he deemed the "fastest surgery ever." The rookie has missed two of the last three games with a shoulder injury, but the image shows his lower left leg in bandages. It's unclear exactly what caused the unexpected procedure to occur, but it certainly muddies the waters for his Week 17 availability. The Raiders have a slim hope of making the playoffs, but it wouldn't be a shock to see Jacobs sit out the season finale in order to protect his health long term. Consider the 21-year-old questionable versus the Broncos this Sunday with Deandre Washington plugging in as a mid-range RB2 option for fantasy championships.
Oakland Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) went through the team's walkthrough practice on Tuesday, and offensive coordinator Greg Olson said it "was encouraging." Jacobs has a chance to return in Week 17 against the Broncos after sitting out in Week 16, and this is a good start to his practice week. The impressive rookie has been a huge part of Oakland's offense in his first season and is trying to get back on the field as the Raiders attempt to make the postseason against all odds. Jacobs will be more of a low-end RB1 if he returns this weekend, which would push Deandre Washington back to backup status. Jacobs ran 23 times for 85 yards and two touchdowns against Denver in the season opener.
Oakland Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) has a chance to play in the Week 17 regular season finale against the Broncos. Jacobs left his fantasy owners out to dry in the finals in Week 16, but he could return for those that are still playing for something against Denver. The 21-year-old has been impressive with 242 carries, 1,150 rushing yards (4.8 yards per tote) and seven touchdowns. Deandre Washington has had RB2 upside when Jacobs has been inactive, but he'd go back to a bench role if Jacobs returns this weekend. The rookie had 23 carries for 85 yards and his first two NFL touchdowns in the season opener against the Broncos. He'd be a low-end RB1 if he returns in Week 17.
Oakland Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) will be held out of Week 16 against the Chargers due to his lingering shoulder injury. It's a huge blow for owners that have gotten to the fantasy finals on the back of the impressive rookie, who is averaging 4.8 yards per carry with 1,150 rushing yards and seven touchdowns in his first year in the NFL. Deandre Washington needs to be picked up immediately and will have RB2 upside against the Bolts this Sunday, with Jalen Richard also mixing in. Washington carried the ball 14 times for 53 yards and a touchdown when Jacobs was absent on Dec. 8 against the Titans. He was also targeted seven times in the passing game.
Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs entered the game questionable with a fractured shoulder, but showed no ill effects by totaling 109 scrimmage yards. He picked up 89 yards on the ground and added a pair of receptions for 20 yards as the team fell 20-16 to the Jaguars in a devastating home loss. The rookie dominated backfield touches once again, handling 24 carries to Deandre Washington's six, but was unable to break out for a gain longer than nine yards. With the loss, the Raiders have been eliminated from playoff contention, so it'll be intriguing to see if they strut out their stud RB with nothing to play for in Week 16. If Jacobs is active next week, he'll be a solid RB2 play versus the Chargers who he touched up for 101 yards against in Week 10.
Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) is good to go for Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jacobs missed last week's game with his shoulder fracture but is returning at the perfect time with a good matchup on hand. Jacksonville's defense has allowed 141.1 yards per game on the ground, third-most in the league. Jacobs should be locked in lineups, despite the slight risk of re-injury. Backup Deandre Washington was a popular waiver wire pickup, though he won't see much run with Jacobs active.
Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs has reportedly been progressing during practice as he attempts to make his way back onto the field for Sundays game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars, but he has officially been listed as questionable for the contest due to a fractured shoulder. Without him in the mix last week, the duo of Deandre Washington and Jalen Richard handled ball-carrying duties, with Washington finding the end zone on the ground and thus presenting the more desirable of the two fantasy commodities. Barring a setback, it appears that Jacobs is in line to man the backfield for Oakland against Jacksonville, although owners will want to check in just to make sure that his status does not take a turn for the worse.
Oakland Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) was limited for a second straight day in practice on Thursday, but offensive coordinator Greg Olson said that Jacobs "looked great." Jacobs missed several practices last week and was inactive in Week 14, but he's trending in the right direction and should be available for the final home game in Oakland in Week 15 against the Jaguars. Jacksonville allows the third most fantasy points per game (24.3) to opposing rushers in 2019, so Jacobs will be an elite RB1 in the fantasy semifinals if he's active, as expected. Deandre Washington and Jalen Richard will return to backup duties for the impressive rookie runner.
Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) isn't a lock to return in Week 15 against the Jaguars despite positive results from his MRI exam. Jacobs's status is unclear for this Sunday, although he was a limited participant in the walkthrough practice on Wednesday. Jacobs must prove to Gruden and the coaching staff in the next two days that he's ready to return after missing Week 14. Deandre Washington and Jalen Richard would once again handle the backfield if Jacobs is forced to miss another game. If the stud rookie returns, he'll be a high-upside RB1 against a Jaguars team that continues to get roasted on the ground.
Oakland Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder), who sat out in Week 14 against the Titans, had positive results from his MRI exam and is expected to return to action in Week 15 against the Jaguars, according to sources. Barring a setback this week, Jacobs should only have a one-week absence. Jacobs has been one of the most impressive running backs in the NFL in 2019, let alone among rookies. Fantasy owners might've been eliminated from the first round of the playoffs without him last Sunday, but they should get him back if they were able to advance. Against a Jacksonville team that has been getting destroyed on the ground in recent weeks, Jacobs will return to high-end RB1 status if he's active. Deandre Washington and Jalen Richard will go back to backup duties.
Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) has been ruled out for week 14 vs Tennessee. Jacobs was attempting to play through a broken shoulder plate but was ruled out after testing his shoulder with trainers during pregame warmups. Jalen Richard and Deandre Washington would likely split work in Jacobs' absence with Richard having more fantasy relevance thanks to his role in the passing game.
Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) may not play against Tennessee on Sunday, with his status for Week 14 still up in the air. Jacobs has carried this designation over the last five weeks, and while he has been able to suit up during that span, this may be the first time that Oakland is without him this year. He was able to practice on Friday in a limited capacity after missing the previous two sessions, but if he is out, expect Deandre Washington to carry the load as the No. 1 option out of the backfield against an average Titans Defense. Keep an eye on his availability up until kickoff.
Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs participated in his first practice of the week on Friday, but head coach Jon Gruden noted that he "didnt do much." It's encouraging that he got onto the field after revealing that he's played with a shoulder fracture since Week 7, but he's genuinely questionable for this weekend. It's looking likely that his status will come down to a game-time decision, so owners should have a contingency plan in place for their 4:25 PM ET start. Deandre Washington figures to receive the majority of the rushing attempts and would be the fill-in option for fantasy if Jacobs sits. If active, Jacobs should be treated as an RB2 with a possible decreased workload versus a Titans Defense that has struggled to stop the run over the last handful of weeks.
Oakland Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) wasn't seen at the start of practice on Thursday. Jacobs revealed on Tuesday that he's been playing through a fractured shoulder since Week 7, so back-to-back missed practices are now more concerning for anyone that owns Jacobs. Despite his injured shoulder, Jacobs has remained productive in his first season and is fourth in the NFL with 1,061 rushing yards in 2019. He'll be a bit more of a risky RB1 this weekend if he suits up, but his fantasy owners will have their minds more at ease if Jacobs returns to practice on Friday. If he cannot play this weekend, Deandre Washington would be the obvious plug and play, with Jalen Richard mixing in on passing downs.
Oakland Raiders rookie running back Josh Jacobs (shoulder) revealed on his social media this week that he's been playing through a fractured right shoulder since getting hurt against the Packers in Week 7. It hasn't appeared to slow the impressive rookie down at all, and he has 1,061 yards on 201 carries in his first year in the NFL. Jacobs didn't practice on Wednesday, but he should be able to play in Week 14 against the Titans if he returns to practice later this week. The 21-year-old has double-digit carries in every game this season and has surpassed 100 yards rushing five times. He doesn't participate much in the passing game, but Jacobs will be, at worst, a high-end RB2 against Tennessee if he's active.
Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs picked up his fifth 100-yard game of the season in the team's blowout loss to the Chiefs on Sunday. The rookie did his part with helping the offense as he totaled 104 yards on 17 carries (6.1 YPC), but was disappointingly held without a catch. Jacobs ceded passing work to Deandre Washington (3/44/0) and Jalen Richard (1/6/0) as the offense entered garbage time mode in the second half. Jacobs has proven to be a dominant running back this season on this run-first offense, but his lack of involvement in the passing game limits his ceiling. He'll remain a fringe RB1 in Week 14 at home versus a susceptible Titans run defense.
Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is in a smash spot for this week's matchup versus the Kansas City Chiefs. When these two teams met in Week 2, the rookie compiled 99 yards on 12 carries (8.25 YPC) in a game that Oakland fell from behind early and was forced to throw the ball more. Expect the Raiders to run the ball aggressively in this contest versus a defense that has allowed the third-most rushing yards against (143.1 YPG), and the most fantasy points given up to the RB spot. In their most pivotal game of the season, the path to victory revolves around Jacobs rushing the ball and keeping the ball away from Patrick Mahomes. He will undoubtedly see plenty of carries as long as they don't fall behind too early, so chalk the 21-year-old up as a high-volume RB1 for Week 13.
