Josh Jacobs Looking To Be More Involved As A Receiver

Wednesday, July 10, 4:37 PM

Green Bay Packers running back Josh Jacobs has hauled in 197 receptions since entering the NFL in 2019, and heading into his first year with Matt LaFleur, he wants to be heavily targeted in the passing game. "I was talking to (LaFleur) about that actually and I was telling him I feel like I want to catch it a little bit more," Jacobs said. "I feel like I didn't get to show that as much as I would have liked. So, that's definitely something in the conversations we had." The former first-round pick has two 50-plus catch seasons on his resume, and he was a solid receiver out of the backfield in college, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he gets his wish. Former Packers running back Aaron Jones earned 311 targets in five seasons with LaFleur, the fifth-most among all ball carriers during that span. Jacobs is being drafted as a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2, which could prove to be a discount in PPR formats.

Tyler Allgeier News

Tyler Allgeier Has Quiet Week 18

Sunday, January 7, 9:30 PM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier was not able to get much going against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. The second-year back rushed six times for 24 yards, while hauling in all three of his targets for 10 yards through the air in the loss. Despite the Falcons drafting Bijan Robinson in the first round, Allgeier remain a consistent part of the Falcons offense. He rushed 186 times for 683 yards with four touchdowns, while adding 18 receptions for 193 yards and an additional touchdown through the air. The assumption is that the Falcons are going to stick with this two-back committee next season. That means, Allgeier will hold some flex appeal and possibly more if Robinson ever goes down with an injury in 2024.
