According to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN NFL Nation, Las Vegas Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said he “[doesn’t] have any new news” about RB Josh Jacobs.
Fantasy Impact: Jacobs has still not yet signed his franchise tag as he continues to hold out. The deadline has passed for Jacobs to sign a long-term deal with the Raiders, so Jacobs’ only options are to sign a one-year deal with stronger guarantees or incentives – similar to RB Saquon Barkley – or sign his tag. Until he signs a deal with the Raiders, he is not required to be at practice, and the biggest fear for the Raiders and fantasy managers alike is that Jacobs is prepared to keep his stand for the long run. He is currently a risky bet as the half-PPR RB9.
