Josh Jacobs Looks For Another Strong Performance

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had a strong start to the 2020 season, scoring three times against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1. He will face a stout run defense against the Saints in Week 2. The Saints rank sixth against the run, so yards will not come easy for Jacobs. An encouraging sign for Jacobs is that he was able to catch four balls for 46 yards on six targets against the Panthers. Based on his rookie year, we knew that Jacobs would be a legitimate RB1 option. Becoming adept in the passing game will make him even more valuable going forward. Jacobs may struggle to pick up four yards a clip against this defense, but his heavy workload still makes him a good RB1 choice at a DFS price of $7,500.

Josh Jacobs Motivated To Produce In Passing Game

Las Vegas Raiders second-year running back Josh Jacobs is motivated to improve his pass-catching numbers in Year 2. "I think he's got to stay wire-to-wire healthy and we have to get more out of him in the passing game, more on the field on third down. He had a great year last year and we expect more of him from this year," head coach Jon Gruden said. Even though he missed the last four games with a right shoulder fracture, Jacobs still finished with a franchise rookie record of 1,150 yards and seven touchdowns. But he caught only 20 passes for 166 yards. The 22-year-old has stated that he'd like to catch at least 60 passes in 2020, which would be excellent news for fantasy managers that took him in the late first/early second round of drafts. Jacobs also set a Raiders rookie record with five 100-yard rushing games, and his 1,150 rushing yards were the fourth-most in NFL history for a player 21 years or younger. He's a must-start RB1 each and every week, including in Week 1 against the Panthers, a team that was constantly exploited on the ground in 2019.

Josh Jacobs' Bar Continues To Rise

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs could be in line for a breakout year, a sentiment that was echoed by ESPN's Mike Clay, who predicted the sophomore back to total 1,400 yards from scrimmage this season. The 22-year-old finished 2019 with 1,150 yards and seven touchdowns but was hindered by a shoulder issue that cost him three games while impacting him in others. With the Raiders having some potent weapons on the receiving end, things may open up more for Jacobs in 2020. Look for him to fly off the draft boards within the first round the majority of fantasy drafts for the upcoming campaign.
