One of the bright spots of the Raiders this season has been the play of running back Josh Jacobs. Despite constant changes on the offensive line, Jacobs continues to produce at an elite level.
Through 10 games, Jacobs has already totaled 1,181 yards and seven touchdowns. He is averaging an absurd 5.1 yards per carry this season, which is by far the most of his career. He’s playing at an All-Pro level and people around the league are starting to notice.
According to Pro Football Focus, Jacobs is currently the NFL’s highest-graded running back through Week 11. He is starting to separate from the rest of the pack after another big game against the Broncos on Sunday.

If the Raiders are going to stack together some wins in the second half of the season, they are going to do it on the shoulders of Jacobs. He’s been phenomenal this season and the Raiders will continue to ride him over the final seven games of the season.
At this point, it would be a shock if he wasn’t an All-Pro selection by the end of the season. That is the type of year Jacobs is having with the Las Vegas Raiders.
