Raiders Re-Sign Ameer Abdullah

The Raiders re-signed running back Ameer Abdullah, the team announced on Friday. The 2015 No. 54 overall pick has played in 125 regular season games, amassing 1,683 yards and six touchdowns off 428 carries. He's also made eight more trips to the end zone as a pass-catcher. While the Raiders backfield situation remains a work in progress heading toward the 2024-25 campaign, there could be an opportunity for Abdullah to get more involved. However, that's not likely, as he's anticipated to remain buried on the depth chart, although he should get a few touches each game. That said, that won't make him relevant for fantasy managers.

Ameer Abdullah Could Have Larger Role In Week 15

Las Vegas Raiders running back Ameer Abdullah has been the primary passing downs back for the team when Josh Jacobs is not carrying the load. Jacobs sustained a knee injury in the Week 14 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. The injury has lingered and caused Jacobs to miss every practice this week. With Jacobs' status in doubt for Thursday night's contest against the Los Angeles Chargers, Abdullah could step into a more significant role. Although fellow running back Zamir White should handle the bulk of the carries, Abdullah has demonstrated his ability as a pass-catching running back. The Raiders trust Abdullah on passing downs and in the two-minute offense, which could lead to sneaky production in PPR leagues. Fantasy managers likely have better options this week, but Abdullah may be able to put up a decent performance this week based on passing game usage.

Ameer Abdullah Steps In For Josh Jacobs In Week 14

Las Vegas Raiders running back Ameer Abdullah has been virtually non-existent for the Raiders for most of the season, but he saw increased usage after Josh Jacobs left the game with a knee injury. Abdullah had one carry for 12 yards and two receptions for seven yards. The Raiders take on the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15. The Chargers defense is more vulnerable through the air than on the ground, which favors Abdullah. Abdullah's role in the offense could expand if Jacobs cannot suit up for that game. Savvy fantasy managers should consider adding Abdullah for his role in the Raiders passing attack.

Ameer Abdullah Continues To See Minimal Usage

Las Vegas Raiders running back Ameer Abdullah has been virtually non-existent for the Raiders for most of the season. Abdullah had several games without a single carry this year but saw increased usage in the blowout win against the New York Giants in Week 9. The backup running back had two carries for eight yards to go along with two catches for 17 yards. The Raiders take on the New York Jets on Sunday night in Week 10. While the increased usage was excellent for Abdullah, he will likely see less volume. The Raiders will likely be in a close contest against the Jets this week. Fantasy managers only need to roster Abdullah in leagues once his usage increases.
