Josh Jacobs News

  • Josh Jacobs feels fresh · Sep 8, 2023

    Josh Jacobs says he feels "fresher than most people" as the Raiders prepare to take on the Broncos in week one

    It was clear all along that Jacobs would be ready to go when the lights came on as he had no leverage in contract discussions with the team. He made it clear in his statement when he said: “I get hit enough, you know what I’m saying? But I mean, man, I came back at the same weight I played at last year and I look bigger. I added muscle, so I think I’m in a good position.” 2022's leading rusher should be in the mix again in 2023 and at only 25 years-of-age, possesses a value-on ranking of RB10 on DLF.

  • Josh Jacobs gets new contract · Aug 26, 2023

    Josh Jacobs and the Raiders have agreed upon a new one-year contract

    The deal could be worth up to $12M in total. There was little chance Jacobs would not be on the field in week one as he possessed no leverage after being franchise tagged by the team. The new deal, similar to that of Saquon Barkley, kicks the can down the road for another year and ensures the top rusher, and his dynasty managers, that it's all systems go as he attempts to follow-on from his league-leading 2022 campaign when he rushed for 1,653 yards and 12 touchdowns. Jacobs remains somewhat undervalued as DLF's RB10 at only 25 years-of-age.

  • Josh Jacobs has suitors · Aug 5, 2023

    The Chiefs and the Broncos have interest in Josh Jacobs

    This could be getting interesting! Citing a "source," it appears the Chiefs and the Broncos are interested in trading for the embattled running back. The Raiders still hold all the cards though Jacobs remains away from the team as training camp rolls on. The move would send shockwaves across the dynasty running back market place, impacting multiple backs while also potentially creating further stir within the NFL as running backs continue to be unhappy with their well-documented situation relating to compensation. Jacobs' value would be highest in Las Vegas but his skillset easily translates to any system and he'd immediately become an acquiring team's RB1. Jacobs is listed as DLF's RB10, a ranking which shouldn't be impacted to a large degree if he's traded to a new team. The same can't be said for the other backs involved.

  • Josh Jacobs leaves Las Vegas · Jul 24, 2023

    Josh Jacobs has left Las Vegas without any intention to return soon

    It's getting serious, but it's not unexpected. Jacobs, along with Saquon Barkley, have lost almost all leverage as they can no longer sign a long term contract with their existing teams. Neither are expected to show up anytime soon and the only route for both of them now to get more compensation is for the team to offer additional money via guarantees or incentives for the 2023 season. It's also possible that the teams pull their franchise tag offers, making both free agents. At this late juncture, however, when combined with the rapidly declining values attached to running backs, it's uncertain as to how much either would garner on the open market. The situation remains very fluid as the players and teams play a game of regular season chicken. Josh Jacobs is found as DLF's RB10.

  • No deals for tagged running backs · Jul 17, 2023

    The league deadline for long-term contracts has passed without deals for Josh Jacobs, Saquon Barkley and Tony Pollard.

    At this time, only Pollard has signed his franchise tag offer and is set to report to camp. Jacobs and Barkley have not signed and appear in no hurry to do so, the latter appearing more dug-in as it relates to reporting at all. Worth $10.1M for 2023, teams simply aren't valuing the position as they once did and the current holdouts have little leverage other than to delay further until reporting to reduce the chance of injury and then report in time to play the regular season. It's hard to imagine Barkley or Jacobs sitting out the entire season and sacrificing the money in hopes for a bigger long-term agreement following the end of the 2023 regular season. The lost 2023 contract amount would offset a good portion of a long term contract benefit. Expect both players to eventually report to camp and be extremely motivated to produce at a high level to justify a more lucrative long-term deal in 2024. It likely all three will hit the open market as free agents in 2024.

  • Josh Jacobs still not signed · Jun 12, 2023

    Josh Jacobs still has not signed his 2023 franchise tag offer.

    The release of Dalvin Cook by Minnesota provides an interest wrinkle in that the Raiders could pull Jacobs' franchise tag offer, making him a free agent, and then sign Dalvin Cook to a cheaper deal. Jacobs stands to make $10.1M in 2023 on the franchise tag and is unlikely to return in 2024 unless tagged a second time. Without question he's a healthier and younger option than Cook, but in the devalued running back market, money talks. Coming off a career season in 2022, expect Jacobs to eventually sign his offer, collect his money and report to training camp. However, if the team remains dissatisfied with their running back's actions, options remain. Jacobs is listed as DLF's RB9.

  • Josh Jacobs hasn't signed · Apr 21, 2023

    Josh Jacobs has yet to sign his franchise tag

    Jacobs was unhappy to receive the franchise tag as most players are and, being a running back, he's likely even less happy given the continual devaluing of the position across the NFL. The team will continue to try and work out a long-term deal and, if that does not come to pass, Jacobs will need to sign to join the team. There's no panic involved as current activities are voluntary in nature. Expect the 25-year-old fresh off career-high numbers to be on the field for the Raiders soon enough. He's listed as DLF's RB8.
