2019 Fantasy Outlook
The first running back off the board in the 2019 draft, Jacobs landed in a potential starting role when Oakland nabbed him with the 24th overall pick. While he didn't carry a heavy workload in a crowded Alabama backfield during his college days, he impressed with what chances he got, showing a versatile skill set and running with power and purpose. At 5-10, 220, Jacobs runs with a low center of gravity, and he should see plenty of short-yardage and goal-line carries regardless of his other duties in the Oakland backfield. His balance and vision are also pluses, so while he lacks elusiveness and there are questions about his ability to outrun defenders in the open field, Jacobs can still pick up extra yards after the initial point of contact. He also showed enough as a receiver to stay on the field for passing downs, though he might never be a true difference-maker through the air and Jalen Richard will also be a factor in that area. The club signed Isaiah Crowell this offseason, but the former Brown and Jet quickly took himself out of the picture with a torn Achilles during April workouts and was replaced by Doug Martin. Marshawn Lynch retired, and the Raiders otherwise focused on upgrading their passing game with the additions of Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams, leaving Jacobs to spearhead the rushing attack.

Jacobs (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's Week 14 tilt against the Titans.
ANALYSIS
This announcement makes official what had been increasingly expected throughout the day, with Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reporting Jacobs is dealing with a fracture of his shoulder plate and has an MRI scheduled for this coming week. In his absence, change-of-pace options Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington will be tasked with filling Jacobs' shoes and likely will operate in tandem to soak up the significant workload the latter had been enjoying.
