Jacobs enters 2023 in the same situation as Saquon Barkley and on a very similar deal. As of today, no running back has been able to overcome the current RB market. That’s a conversation to be had on a different day, but historically, a running back being franchise-tagged has done great things for fantasy.
Jacobs re-assumes his role as the Raiders RB1 on an offense that will likely once again feature a heavy dose of him in the ground game. As things stand, Jacobs’ ADP is extremely deflated – but the anticipation should be that it moves up in a hurry with just two weeks to go ahead of the regular season.
