The Las Vegas Raiders might go with a running-back-by-committee approach in 2022, The Athletic's Vic Tafur speculates. "Sounds to me like you have to use [Zamir White] this season," Tafur wrote. "[Josh] Jacobs and [Kenyan] Drake will likely both be gone next year after playing out their contracts, and there is probably a decent chance [general manager Dave] Ziegler and [head coach Josh] McDaniels already think White is better than them. A committee approach seems to make sense, keeping everybody fresh and ideally available."
Huddle Up: If the Raiders take this approach, Jacobs would go from an RB2 to a flex play, and that's assuming he gets the most work of the three. In this scenario, Drake isn't a viable fantasy option in re-draft leagues, and neither is rookie Zamir White. However, White is a second-round pick and a bench stash in dynasty rookie drafts.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (undisclosed) did not participate in individual or team drills during practice Thursday, May 26.
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen why Jacobs wasn't taking part in the session, but there has been no mention of a significant injury up to this point. Jacobs isn't the flashiest back, but he has enjoyed a steady workload throughout his career. He should be a serviceable RB2.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs has topped 1,200 yards from scrimmage and has scored at least seven touchdowns in all three years of his career.
Huddle Up: Although Las Vegas declined his fifth-year option, Jacobs is still positioned to be the featured back. Zamir White and Kenyan Drake will likely cut into his receiving numbers, but Jacobs should do the heavy lifting on early downs. He is at least a volume-based RB2 and could be a solid value pick in fantasy drafts.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs' fifth-year option will not be picked up, the team announced Friday, April 29.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs' 54 receptions in 2021 ranked fifth among running backs and were more than his reception total from his first two seasons combined.
Huddle Up: Jacobs failed to reach 1,000 yards rushing for the first time in his career, but he did finish with nine touchdowns and enjoyed an expanded role in the passing game. His role as the feature back in the Las Vegas offense should remain unchanged in 2022, making Jacobs a safe bet for RB2 production.
