Josh Jacobs Fantasy Outlook
Josh Jacobs made the 2019 all rookie team. He eclipsed 1,000 yards and made the Raiders look good for using a first round pick on him.
He is a talented downhill runner. Jacobs has the ability to be special. At 220 pounds he still has good burst and some wiggle as he runs.
Do not mistake him for a finesse runner because he will gladly lower his shoulder and run right through a defense.
One big knock on Jacobs is partly not his fault. It can be frustrating as a fantasy owner at times dealing with bad game scripts.
The Raiders would be down at times and have to abandon the run trying to climb back into the game. Unfortunate but a reality.
He also is not involved in the pass game much at all. Maybe he will see an increase because he is good catching the ball out of the backfield.
Jon Gruden must wear that chucky like smile on his face often knowing he has Josh Jacobs in his backfield. Greg Olsen is the OC and returns probably with an idea of getting the ball to Jacobs again this season.
Some stability between the coaches and players is exactly what the Raiders need considering they are picking up and moving to Las Vegas.
Josh Jacobs will be a shining star in a city that already shines bright.
Las Vegas Raiders Offensive Line 2020
Projected Starting Line: LT: Kolton Miller, LG: Richie Incognito, C: Rodney Hudson, RG: Gabe Jackson: RT: Trent Brown
This offensive line is massive! That is probably a good reason why Josh Jacobs averaged 4.8 yards per carry last season.
All 5 linemen return after starting last season. The Raiders did not draft any linemen in the 2020 draft and only signed one free agent to add depth. This is a clear sign that the Raiders believe in their O line.
The only negative is that this line was banged up last season. Incognito missed 4 games, Trent Brown and Gabe Jackson each missed 5. Rodney Hudson missed one.
When healthy, no doubt about it, this is one of the better offensive line units in football.
Josh Jacobs Strength of Schedule
The Raiders face 5 teams that had defenses in the top 10 in 2019.
The Raiders home opener in Week 2 is a primetime Monday Night game against the Saints. Josh Jacobs will also have 3 other games in primetime and several games that kickoff at 4pm EST.
A week 6 bye is not favorable. It is too early and requires a back to go 11 straight weeks after the bye.
Josh Jacobs Fantasy Playoff Schedule
3 straight home games for most fantasy playoffs should excite fantasy owners. The Raiders host the Colts, Chargers and Dolphins Weeks 14-16. Week 17 the Raiders travel to Mile High and square off against the Broncos.
Josh Jacobs Injury History
Jacobs missed 3 games during his rookie season because of a shoulder injury and skin infection.
