Josh Jacobs has put together a pair of strong NFL seasons. In two years, he has scored 19 touchdowns and produced a pair of seasons with just over 1,300 total yards. The arrow looked to be pointed up as he was set to enter his age-23 season. However, the Raiders signing of Kenyan Drake (two years, $11M) makes projecting Jacobs more difficult and decreases the chances we see him emerge as a truly elite fantasy producer in 2021. Jacobs has proven adept as a well-rounded runner with a nice blend of elusiveness and power. He also has performed well in the red zone and finished fourth in the NFL with 12 rushing touchdowns in 2020. However, the one positive aspect of his college scouting report that has not fully translated at the next level has been his pass-catching. Through two NFL seasons, he has averaged just 5.6 yards per target on his way to 404 career receiving yards. With head coach Jon Gruden talking up Drake's receiving ability, it is unlikely we see Jacobs make a big leap as a receiver in his third season. The modest projected receiving role for Jacobs limits his fantasy upside, especially in the PPR format. However, he is still likely to see a heavy workload as a runner, making him a safe fantasy RB2 with realistic low-end RB1 upside.
