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.

Jerome Ford Quiet In Playoff Loss

Sunday, January 14, 7:20 AM

Cleveland Browns running back Jerome Ford carried the ball nine times for 17 yards and added four catches for 15 yards in a 45-14 loss to the Houston Texans in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday. Ford was quiet in his first playoff game as the Browns fell behind 24-14 at halftime and had to shift to a pass-first approach in the second half. Ford turned in a solid effort as Cleveland's lead back after the team lost Nick Chubb to a season-ending knee injury in Week 2. Chubb is likely to be back at some point early in the 2024 season but Ford has certainly earned himself a role as the No. 2 running back in Cleveland moving forward. With Chubb set to become a free-agent after next season, Ford remains an interesting long-term asset in dynasty formats.
