Around the NFL: Josh Jacobs

Another week, another Josh Jacobs-related story in which we're told that he'll be used more in the passing game this year. It sounds great, and makes sense considering the way he was used in college. It's the team's other personnel moves which make it sound like a lie.   more »


Factoid: Raiders running backs

I threw a last-round pick at Jalen Richard yesterday in a draft. It was 260 picks in, and I wanted another PPR option at running back. The Raiders made some remarks earlier this offseason at using Josh Jacobs more in the passing game this year, but actions speak louder than words.   more »


Around the NFL: Josh Jacobs

Maybe you saw the story in March where Mike Mayock said he expected Josh Jacobs' role in the passing game to increase in 2020. He said it, but actions speak louder than words. The Raiders keep bringing in other players as candidates for those chances.   more »


Around the NFL: Raiders running backs

DeAndre Washington signed with Kansas City last week. He was used primarily as a receiving back in Oakland, so fair to wonder if he might absorb some of that production in Kansas City. The other part of the equation is the boost this could potentially give to Josh Jacobs and Jalen Richard.   more »



Raiders extend RB Richard

The Las Vegas Raiders (that sounds different) have signed running back JALEN RICHARD to a two-year contract extension heading into the 2020 season. The Raiders originally signed Richard in 2016 asMore an undrafted free agent and he has remained with the team since. While he has played a large role on special teams, Richard has yet to have a breakout fantasy season as a running back. Less

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

Raiders add Crowell to backfield

The Oakland Raiders signed veteran running back ISAIAH CROWELL to a one-year contract late last week. Crowell, 26, is a durable five-year veteran who joins JALEN RICHARD in the Raiders running back room. Last season’s leading rushers, MARSHAWN LYNCH and DOUG MARTIN, are both unrestricted free agents.

Raiders RB Lynch dealing with groin injury

Oakland running back MARSHAWN LYNCH has a groin strain and the Raiders are worried that it may be a long-term injury. If the injury is as serious as feared, it couldMore mean a trip to injured reserve for Lynch. If he were to miss time, DOUG MARTIN could see an increase in touches along with JALEN RICHARD and DEANDRE WASHINGTON. Less

NFL Injury Report: Saturday injury report

The four Monday night teams have submitted their injury reports. Nothing too earth-shattering with any of them. But a Pro Bowl tight end is now a question mark.   more »


Around the NFL: Doug Martin

The Raiders signed Doug Martin a few weeks back, and it was an interesting move. Jon Gruden has a Tampa background. Does he know something about Martin? And is this the beginning of the end for Marshawn Lynch?  more »


Around the NFL: Oakland Raiders

Marshawn Lynch will be 31 in a couple of weeks. He’s ready to come back and play. His hometown Raiders want him. Let’s take a look at this.  more »

Around the NFL: Latavius Murray

Latavius Murray had a serviceable enough season for the Raiders last year, rushing for 788 yards and 12 TDs. But considering he was running behind one of the league's best offensive lines on a 12-win team, it wasn't so impressive that it's certain he'll be back in 2017. Murray is headed for free agency, and won't necessarily be a priority for the Raiders.   more »
