As a first-rounder, Jacobs is likely to see a significant workload because so much was invested into him: In a self-fulfilling mechanism, the Raiders will give him every opportunity to prove himself so that they might be proven correct in drafting him with a premium pick.

It helps that Jacobs is built like a lead back. He should be able to withstand the grind of getting 20 touches every week.

Given how important age, draft position and size are to the running back position, it’s not unreasonable for fantasy players to expect a lot out of Jacobs as early as this year. Matthew Freedman
