So you’re expecting other Ds to let him run free on routes out of the backfield?

 

This is part of the problem with OAK losing Brown.  You’ll see better coverage roll down, especially with Ty Williams and Waller being the only two guys that really throw any significant concern to opposing D backfields. 

 

Hopefully you’re willing to concede that there is a middle ground between being defended “extremely well” out of the backfield and running free routes

I thought he looked pretty great especially on his catch. You could also look at this way denver was supposed and imo still does have a top 3 def. The raiders are missing two stud lineman which along with an already very impressive line. Carr looked good. Waller and williams are decent enough.

They do have a brutal schedule worst ive seen in the first 6 weeks.

2- chiefs great, but they will be down.

3- Top 5 run def

4- colts- good match up but they will probably be down.

5- Bears- worst possible match up

6- Packers- Def looked legit

 

7- Houston- Not bad

8-Lions- Not bad

9- Chargers- Not bad

10- Bengals- Not bad

11- Jets- Not bad

12- Chiefs

13- Titans

14- Jags- probably gave up by now, no qb

15- chargers.

16-Broncos

 

 

DEN had the fewest TFLs in the NFL week 1.  Worse than MIA, if you can believe that.  They have a D built to rush the QB, but they do not have many players with much strength against the run.  I’m expecting DEN to be one of the worst run Ds in the NFL this year.  They have a glaring weakness right up the middle of their D and they do not have edge setters.

 

Time will tell if I’m wrong, but this D looks highly overrated to me.

Yeah, and I expect him to be accounted for in the passing game.

Jacobs looked good, but the better news is the Raiders offensive line looked serviceable and Carr looked like he could actually play QB again. If Waller and Williams can provide some semblance of a passing game there is some nice upside here. And they're gonna run this guy till his legs fall off.

Arrow is definitely pointing up.  True bell cow and once Gabe Jackson and Incognito return, that will be a fantastic O-line.  I don't think the Raiders will play that well all year but his workload looks unquestioned at the moment.

What does that matter?

 

Try to stay on subject.

It matters as much as CMC & Barkley first game stats i'd guess

Comparing 1st round RBs and their debuts. 

 

Henry wasn't a first rounder.

You’re comparing Jacobs to Barkley and McCaffrey?  Do you even watch football?

I'm a little concerned with this latest Oakland injury.  Hopefully, Jacobs will also be a big part of the pass catching on third down.

Right?! Obviously Barkley and McCaffrey couldn't even hold Jacobs' jock strap

He is what he was in the preseason.  He gets what is blocked for him and nothing more.  When OAK plays against teams that are more stout in the front 7 against the run he’s going to struggle.

 

But he’ll be a good FF on volume.  Gruden is clearly not going to give anyone but him the rushes.  If he holds up he’ll have a good FF season, but I have a feeling there are going to be some clunkers in there when he’s up against a stronger run D and he’s held out of the end zone.  He’s got kind of a Trent Richardson feel for me right now.

 

This is kind of what I saw. He definitely physically looks the part, he is jacked. And he had some runs where he dragged defenders a few yards, but I didn’t really see anything that wowed me or made me think he is an outlier talent. No moves or cuts or speed that popped off the screen, mostly just running into guys. Kind of reminds me of Mark ingram where he can do everything pretty well, but nothing elite. Should be good enough for fantasy though.

Jacobs is efficient, and he stands as the first rookie to total 100-plus yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in his NFL debut since LaDainian Tomlinson did it in 2002.

How does this speak to his efficiency?

I really like Jacobs. It's fun having a rookie on your team and watching him kick a** when other people passed on him. In saying that... see Kareem Hunt's first game two seasons ago.

246 total yards and 3 TDs

What's the general assessment on KC run D? I know they were pretty weak last year. Has that changed much?

 

Who knows. They aren’t an amazing defense. Worry playing the Chiefs is gamescript.

Normally, I would, too. But it seems that Jacobs will stay on the field for passing downs, right? Also, no Hill should keep this game closer. Raiders are at home, defense looked decent enough last week, and as an overall team, they might be a little underrated.

I agree with you. I’m not sitting Jacobs for sure. I think Jacobs is a rock solid rb2 plug and play with rb1 upside.
