Huddle Up: Richard's value was already limited to PPR formats, and now that Jacobs is in the mix and potentially headed for an every-down role, Richard is slipping into handcuff territory. Meanwhile, Jacobs looks like a RB2 candidate as a rookie.

Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard carried the rock four times for 11 yards and added four receptions for 40 yards in the team's Week 16 win Monday, Dec. 24, against the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: This is a pretty typical stat line for Richard and it certainly wasn't going to change while backfield teammate Doug Martin was enjoying his best showing of the year. Due to his inconsistent usage and defined ceiling, Richard is really only a FLEX option in deep PPR leagues.

Oakland Raiders RB Jalen Richard ran four times for nine yards in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added five receptions for 67 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: The Raiders got away from the run in the second half with the game out of hand, and that was good news for Richard running short routes out of the backfield. He's a nice low-end RB3 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues in Week 16 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night with much lesser value in standard play.
