Who is Josh Jacobs

Josh Jacobs entered Tuscaloosa as the RB3 behind Damien Harris and Bo Scarbrough, but was the most efficient receiver of the three and earned over 500 yards on the ground. Jacobs’s production took a slight hit the next season, when Najee Harris came to town and stole his RB3 role en route to a National Championship. In 2018, he was again outgained on the ground by Harris and Harris, but led the backfield in receiving for the third straight year. Knowing a lead role wasn’t coming, Jacobs opted to leave early and declare for the NFL draft. His college stats created an analytical nightmare across the board. His 4.69 second 40 time, 115.5 burst score, and 13.9-percent college dominator rating leaves little to the imagination. John Gruden and the Las Vegas Raiders thought differently, and selected him near the end of the first round.

From day one he was a bellcow in Las Vegas. He carried the ball 242 times, including an impressive 81 broken tackles and 1.77 yards created per touch despite porous run blocking. For the first time, Jacobs was boasting solid next gens stats. The bar proved tough to raise, but he found a way. His per touch efficiency dropped, but a substantial increase in opportunities vaulted himover 1000 rushing yards and 12 total touchdowns. Finally, in 2021, he unlocked a new aspect of his game, his receiving skills. His role in the passing game took a 180-degree turn, earning a 12.4-percent target share with 3 drops on 253 routes run. Jacobs finished the season with an RB13 fantasy ranking and, despite never earning an elite snap share, enters the final year of his guaranteed contract as an underrated asset.
