Jalen Richard Could See Increased Workload

Oakland Raiders running back Jalen Richard didnt see the field much in Week 1, but should find more opportunities in Sundays contest versus the Chiefs. With the Raiders likely playing from behind, the offense will be in pass-mode for most of the game. Richard finished the 2018 campaign tied for the team lead with 68 receptions proving to be a reliable target for Derek Carr out of the backfield. Josh Jacobs will handle the bulk of carries once again but his role in the passing game remains to be seen giving Richard a higher ceiling this week. He makes a risky flex play even in PPR formats but is a cheap dart throw option for DFS.

Jalen Richard Prepared For Pass-Catching Role

The Oakland Raiders will once again utilize running back Jalen Richard as a third-down pass-catching back this season. He finished the 2018 campaign tied for first on the team with 68 receptions, and he ranked seventh in the league in this category among all running backs. With the Raiders adding a dynamic group of receivers this offseason, and selecting Josh Jacobs in the first round to be an every-down back, Richard's role in 2019 will undoubtedly decrease. He'll likely begin the season with more playing time to ease Jacobs into third-down action, but still won't hold much fantasy value in any league format. Richard remains a handcuff and would only find value in PPR leagues as a one-dimensional player if an injury were to strike.

Jalen Richard's Role Likely To Decrease In 2019

Oakland Raiders running back Jalen Richard is coming off a successful 2018 campaign which saw him accumulate 55 rushes and 68 catches for 866 all-purpose yards. With the team using a first-round pick on Josh Jacobs, Richard finds himself third on the depth chart this season with a question mark surrounding his usage for this year. Richard was a huge factor in the passing game last season finishing seventh among running backs in receptions. With the coaching staff hopeful of Jacobs becoming an every-down back, Richard will struggle to find playing time on this improving offense. Unless Jacobs gets injured or struggles mightily as a pass-catcher, Richard won't hold any fantasy appeal in 2019.
