Raiders Will Explore Re-Signing Josh Jacobs

Tuesday, February 27, 11:49 PM

Las Vegas Raiders general manager Tom Telesco said the team is going to try and bring back impending free-agent running back Josh Jacobs this offseason. "We're going to explore pretty hard and see if we can bring him back," Telesco said. The news comes a day after it was reported that the Raiders are unlikely to use the franchise tag on the 26-year-old, which would cost them $14.15 million in 2024. After posting a league-high 1,653 rushing yards and a career-high-tying 12 rushing touchdowns in 2022, Jacobs played in just 13 games in 2023 due to injuries and finished with a career-low 805 rushing yards (3.5 yards per carry) and six rushing TDs on 233 attempts. Jacobs has cleared 1,000 yards rushing in three of his five NFL seasons and still has RB1 upside, but his fantasy stock is going to be down this fall, especially if he leaves Vegas and lands in a less favorable situation.

Chase Brown News

Chase Brown Logs Career-High 11 Carries On Sunday

Sunday, January 7, 9:26 PM

Cincinnati Bengals running back Chase Brown had 43 yards off 11 carries in Sunday's win over the Browns. He added one catch for 10 yards. The Bengals were eliminated from playoff contention after the Week 17 loss to the Chiefs. However, Cincinnati wanted to end the year with a winning record. Brown's 11 attempts were the most of his career. Although he couldn't find the end zone for the second time this season, he still had a decent year as Joe Mixon's backup. At any rate, the 23-year-old should at least remain the No. 2 running back on the depth chart, so he'll draw interest from fantasy managers during drafts ahead of Week 1 for insurance purposes. Of course, the Bengals should strongly consider keeping Joe Mixon on the roster, even more so since he had 12 touchdowns this season. Yet, Brown's outlook could improve even more if he finds himself atop the depth chart heading into the 2024-25 campaign.
