Alexander Mattison Signs With Las Vegas; Zamir White is Raiders' Clear RB1
3 months ago

Zamir White is the Raiders running back to own as Las Vegas signs Alexander Mattison for support.

The former NFL rushing yards leader for the Las Vegas Raiders, Josh Jacobs, is now on the Green Bay Packers. Jacobs missed the final four games in 2023 with an injury. His replacement was his 2nd-year, former Georgia Bulldog, backup, Zamir White. In Jacobs’ absence, White finished four straight weeks as a PPR RB2, carrying the ball 21 times per game and exceeding 100 total yards three times. Most analysts and fans felt his performance made Jacobs expendable, and, sure enough, the Raiders allowed Jacobs to leave. Now White will lead the RB room.

 

White, nicknamed “Zeus”, was the only RB on the roster, until Ameer Abdullah signed to return to the team. Former Vikings running back Alexander Mattison is the latest addition. Mattison will be a solid veteran insurance policy, and change of pace as a backup to White, while Abdullah carries 3rd down duties with Mattison being inferior to his backfield-mates in pass-blocking and in receiving. In addition, Mattison has traditionally been a power back and the Raiders have stated they intend to use zone blocking schemes, a system in which White is the more capable back. The Raiders will also likely use a Day 3 pick to add a RB in the upcoming draft to fill out the RB room.

 

Given White’s relative lack of previous usage, his new role as the backfield leader, and his performance to finish 2023, expect him to be a solid RB2/Top 20 option in 2024. An identical workload of 21 carries per game at 4.3 ypc would set him firmly atop the rushing leaderboard for the season.

Las Vegas Raiders Retain Antonio Pierce
5 months ago

The Las Vegas Raiders have announced that Antonio Pierce has been retained as the team’s Head Coach.

The Las Vegas Raiders have stayed in-house for their Head Coach hire, giving Antonio Pierce an upgrade after the former defensive standout and Super Bowl Champion served at the position in the 2023 interim that followed the firing of Josh McDaniels. Pierce’s Raiders finished with a 5-4 record, giving notice to their AFC West rivals that they were to be reckoned with. Pierce led a late-season revamp which saw the team score 63 points against the Chargers, beat the Chiefs in Kansas City for Christmas, and embarrass the Broncos in Week 18.

 

Despite speculation and media hype that previously surrounded Raiders coaching hires and the big names that are available for hire, Mark Davis had eyes for only one man. Most notably, “big fish” candidates Jim Harbaugh, Bill Belichck, and Mike Vrabel were never interviewed.

 

Questions still remain at Offensive Coordinator and whether or not QB Aidan O’Connell will be the starter post-draft, so the fantasy implications are to-be-determined. Zamir White, Tre Tucker, and Michael Mayer did show promise for the future, each having mini-breakouts after the change at head coach.

Raiders RB Josh Jacobs OUT for TNF; Zamir White Gets First Start
6 months ago

The Las Vegas Raiders have ruled RB Josh Jacobs OUT for Week 15 and have named Zamir White as the replacement.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs injured his quad in Week 14’s 3-0 shootout with the Minnesota Vikings. Jacobs did not practice at all during the short week leading to Thursday night’s matchup against Easton Stick and the Los Angeles Chargers and has been ruled OUT.

Jacobs’ replacement will be former University of Georgia RB Zamir White. White will be making his first career start.

Both teams have seen their struggles this season. The Chargers pre-season starters that will be missing from the game include QB Justin Herbert and WRs Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. In addition to Jacobs, starting offensive linemen LT Kolton Miller and C Andre James will be missing.
