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.

Rhamondre Stevenson Wants To Be Featured Back

Thursday, February 15, 7:03 PM

New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson said he wants to be the team's featured back in 2024 as he gets set to enter the final year of his rookie deal. In his third year in the NFL, a high-ankle sprain limited the 25-year-old to just 12 games. In 156 rushing attempts, he averaged a career-low 4.0 yards per carry for 619 yards and four touchdowns, adding 38 receptions on 51 targets for 238 yards through the air. He was essentially New England's lead back before getting hurt, albeit in an offense that was among the worst in the league because of quarterback issues. Stevenson should be able to bounce back with better health in 2024 after accumulating 1,400 scrimmage yards in 2022, but what the Patriots do at QB will have a big effect on his fantasy upside.
