  • LV Running Back #28
    Reed’s report is via “league sources.” Reed also reports the team is not considering rescinding Jacobs’ franchise tag or making an enhanced one-year offer, a la Saquon Barkley in New York. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported last Saturday that Jacobs intends to report before Week 1. It remains his only real option unless he wants to begin missing game checks.

    In other words, it sounds like the Dolphins aren’t interested in overpaying for Jonathan Taylor or any other top back. The Colts’ asking price for Taylor is reportedly high, leaving some to question whether or not a trade will get done before next Tuesday’s deadline the Colts have put forth. Wolfe also reports the Dolphins reached out to the Raiders about Josh Jacobs earlier this year, but the Raiders said they have no plans on trading Jacobs at this time.

    Vincent Bonsignore’s report is via “multiple league sources.” Although this was always the most likely outcome, this is the first actual indication we have it is indeed Jacobs’ plan. Unsigned, Jacobs hasn’t lost a cent during his “holdout,” but that would change in drastic fashion were he to remain away from the team in Week 1. Although late-camp reports have something of an inglorious fantasy history, last year’s yards from scrimmage leader would remain a no-brainer RB1 if he’s out there Week 1 against the Broncos.

    White got the Raiders’ first four carries of the game but was subbed out for Brandon Bolden at the end of the drive. Bolden ultimately punched in a seven-yard score. White stayed in the game for two more drives with the second team and then left the field for the night. Through two exhibition games, White has 23 carries for 83 yards and a score. His work has come with the starters and immediate backups. His usage suggests that should Josh Jacobs hold out into the season or get hurt after returning, White would see the bulk of the carries for Las Vegas.

    White was listed as the No. 1 back on the Raiders’ first unofficial depth chart for last week’s preseason game against the 49ers. White rushed 13 times for 43 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders’ preseason win while playing with the backups. The former Georgia Bulldog has good size (6'0/215) and speed (4.40 40-yard dash) but never saw a true bell cow role in college. In 37 career games, White handled 15 or more rush attempts on just six occasions — a number that could increase drastically as the Raiders’ RB1. The possibility of Jacobs returning still looms, but White is an interesting late-round value as the season draws closer.
  • LV Wide Receiver #17
    Raiders coach Josh McDaniel said Adams was “ready to roll” before practice. Adams went down with the leg injury after taking a hard hit from 49ers LB Oren Burks last Friday. Though his reps could still be limited in the coming days, it looks like Adams’ injury will be a non-story going forward. Fantasy managers can continue taking one of the best receivers of the past decade at the one-two turn in drafts.
  • Wilson, who injured his foot last November, is finally ready to go after being taken with the seventh overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. Wilson’s emergence as a pass rusher during his final two seasons at Texas Tech included 14 sacks and 27.5 tackles for loss. He’ll join a Vegas front seven that recorded the third fewest sacks in 2022.
  • LV Running Back #36
    Drafted by the Chiefs in 2019, Thompson spent the previous two seasons on various practice squads after playing in Kansas City for the first two years of his career. It is unlikely Thompson breaks the opening day roster, something he will look to accomplish over the coming weeks.
  • LV Wide Receiver #17
    This isn’t the most comforting quote from McDaniels, but it looks like Adams will be okay after going down early in Friday’s practice before limping off the field. The Athletic’s Tashan Reed later added that, per a league source, the injury is minor. Adams’ injury will be worth monitoring over the next week or two, but fantasy managers can breathe a sigh of relief for now.

    Per Volin, Adams took a shot from 49ers LB Oren Burks at the beginning of team drills and was slow to get up. He eventually limped off the field before getting checked out by trainers. Adams eventually left the joint practice. The injury could be nothing, but it’s worth monitoring given Adams’ importance to the Raiders and the fantasy landscape. Should the issues cause him to miss time, Hunter Renfrow and Jakobi Meyers would be in line for notable bumps in target share, though the Raiders’ offense would likely crater without its top receiver.
