Josh Jacobs (quad) will not play in Week 18 against the Broncos.

05 January 2024

Jacobs always looked like a long-shot to play in Week 18, even after interim head coach Antonio Pierce said he would be a game-time decision. Now Jacobs’ attention will turn toward free agency. The Raiders reportedly offered him a deal worth $12 million per year in the offseason but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement. They then slapped the franchise tag on him and eventually upped his deal by a few million after a holdout. Needless to say, Jacobs may have played his last snap for the organization given their inability to reach a deal. Coming off a season that saw him lead the NFL in yards from scrimmage, Jacobs was unable to provide an encore in 2023. His efficiency plummeted as he rushed 233 times for 805 yards and six scores while adding 296 yards through the air. Jacobs will only turn 26 in February, so there will be plenty of teams willing to offer him a multi-year deal on the open market. His fantasy value for 2024 rests on his landing spot, though he should be in line for at least RB2 numbers no matter where he signs.
