Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs and the team are hopeful they can reach a long-term agreement on a contract extension before the July 17 deadline. Las Vegas placed the $10.1 million franchise tag on Jacobs.
Huddle Up: Jacobs is coming off a career year and proved to be an elite fantasy asset. There's still a lot of time to get a deal done, but the former first-round pick could have a much more stable situation by summertime.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs officially received the franchise tag Monday, March 6. The franchise tag for running backs in 2023 is worth $10.091 million.
Huddle Up: Jacobs and the Raiders now have until the middle of the summer to hammer out a long-term contract. The 25-year-old is in no danger of hitting the age and workload cliffs just yet, but it is worth noting that Jacobs has already logged 1,232 touches in four NFL seasons and is coming off a career-high 393 last season - his first full season as a pro. Needless to say, he should be considered a strong fantasy RB1 option in 2023 - albeit one that will come with a fairly high injury risk.

Impending free-agent RB Josh Jacobs (Raiders) is expected to have the franchise tag placed on him if he and the Las Vegas Raiders are unable to agree to a long-term contract extension by the March 7 deadline, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It sounds as though the Raiders and Jacobs have been open to getting something done for a few months, so perhaps the deadline will spur some action from both sides. And there should be motivation to get something done on both sides since the Raiders would likely prefer not to have their running back account for a $10 million hit on their cap and Jacobs would prefer to make a bit more than that after leading the league in rushing last season.

Impending free-agent RB Josh Jacobs (Raiders) and his representatives have been in contact with the Las Vegas Raiders about getting a long-term extension done, according to head coach Josh McDaniels.
Huddle Up: It sounds as though Las Vegas will use the franchise tag on Jacobs - which would be a one-year contract worth $10.091 million - if both sides cannot agree on a long-term deal before the March 7 deadline to keep him off the open market. Jacobs mentioned earlier last month that he would be willing to play on the franchise tag if the team loaded up around him, but he will likely be a Raider regardless of what happens this month. Jacobs should be considered a solid fantasy RB1 option if he returns.

Las Vegas Raiders impending free-agent RB Josh Jacobs has ranked in the top 15 in rushing yards in all four seasons of his career, and he has ranked inside the top 15 in receiving yards among running backs in 2021 and 2022.
Huddle Up: Jacobs led the NFL with more than 2,000 scrimmage yards last season, and any team that signs him will presumably make him the focal point of their rushing attack. Expect Jacobs to be a RB1 candidate wherever he suits up in 2023.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs, who is set to reach free agency next month, told Pro Football Talk on Thursday, Feb. 9, that he would be willing to play on the franchise tag in 2023 "if the team loaded up at all other positions and added players around him."
Huddle Up: The last six or seven months has seen Jacobs experience an incredible change of fortune. He was thought to be headed toward a committee backfield with Zamir White and Ameer Abdullah last summer. Now it appears he could make more than $10 million in 2023. Jacobs added during his interview that he would prefer to stay with the Raiders, but his words suggest he is unlikely to take a hometown discount. Either way, Jacobs should be considered a top-10 fantasy option at his position this spring and summer.

Las Vegas Raiders impending free-agent RB Josh Jacobs said he has not had contract talks with the Raiders at this point but indicated he is interested in re-signing with them.
Huddle Up: Jacobs was one of the top running backs in the NFL this season and probably will be a candidate for the franchise tag if the two sides are not able to reach a long-term agreement. He should be a starting option in fantasy leagues no matter where he plays in 2023.

Las Vegas Raiders impending free-agent RB Josh Jacobs said he wants to return to the Raiders next season but that the contract has to make sense for him.
Huddle Up: The Raiders likely will look to try to re-sign Jacobs after he led the NFL in rushing with 1,653 rushing yards. He will be a candidate for the franchise tag if the two sides are unable to reach a deal. He should be a first-round pick in fantasy leagues next season.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs took 17 carries for 45 rushing yards in the Week 18 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He added two catches on three targets for five yards.

Updating a previous report, Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip, oblique, personal) is officially active for Week 18.
Huddle Up: On the cusp of winning his first rushing title, Jacobs is an elite RB1 who must be in lineups.
