Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs finished with 13 carries for 83 yards while adding four grabs for 44 yards during the postseason loss to Cincinnati. The 23-year-old was dealing with a rib issue entering Saturday, although it didn't slow him down as he strongly capped off another solid year. Jacobs certainly hasn't hit his peak, at least it seems, so he has an excellent chance to exceed his fantasy ADP expectations heading into the 2022-23 campaign, depending on who takes over the coaching duties in Las Vegas. His health has also been an issue, so he must remain healthy for managers to benefit.
Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and Pro Bowl defensive end Maxx Crosby both endorsed Rich Bisaccia retaining the head-coaching job permanently after their 26-19 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in the wild-card game on Saturday. Bisaccia was promoted from special teams coordinator to interim head coach when Jon Gruden resigned on Oct. 11. "I think we can all think that he's the right guy," Carr said of Bisaccia. "He's proven that people listen to him. Our team listens to him. And I love him so much, I'm thankful for him." Crosby called Bisaccia a "great leader" for the Raiders. The Raiders are expected to consider Bisaccia as they search for a full-time head coach, but it might be unlikely that he'll retain head-coaching duties heading into the 2022 season.
Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller caught seven of 12 targets for 76 yards in Saturday's AFC Wild-Card game loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. He led the Raiders in receiving and topped 75 yards for the first time since Week 11. It was also the first time since Week 9 the Raiders star tight end reached double digits in targets, but he only played in two games after Week 12. The 29-year-old is a strong bounce-back candidate in 2022 after catching 55 passes for 665 yards and two touchdowns over 11 games in 2021. Waller is under contract with the Raiders for two more seasons and enters 2022 fantasy drafts as a top-five tight end.
It appears that the future of Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr will be closely tied to the team's decision on what they do at head coach in the offseason. The Raiders and Carr have a mutual decision to make this offseason, and sources say the choice of the head coach will be a factor. Carr has made it clear that his preference is to stay in Vegas, but he has a year left on his five-year, $125 million deal and has earned a near top-of-the-market extension. Whether general manager Mike Mayock stays could also affect Carr's future. The 30-year-old signal-caller impressed both on and off the field during a year with extreme turmoil within the organization. Carr finished the regular season with a career-high 4,804 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and a 94 quarterback rating.
Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow (hip) practiced in full all week and will play in Saturday's wild-card game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Renfrow was on the injury report this week, but there was never any real danger that he'd miss this weekend's playoff game. The 26-year-old scored two touchdowns in the Week 18 regular season finale win over the Los Angeles Chargers, but he did it on just four catches for 13 yards. While Renfrow scored four times in the final three games, he went over 40 yards receiving just once. Zay Jones has seen more targets, and the return of tight end Darren Waller will only take more valuable targets away from Renfrow heading into Saturday's clash with the Bengals. For what it's worth, Renfrow caught all four passes for just 30 yards in the Week 11 meeting with Cincy. He could be a touchdown-dependent DFS option at his $6,000 DraftKings price.
