Raiders' Jalen Richard could have receiving workload lessened in 2019

Oakland Raiders running back Jalen Richard could reportedly lose a share of his targets to rookie back Josh Jacobs, according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic.

What It Means:

The Raiders selected Jacobs out of Alabama with the No. 24 pick in the drat, showing how much they think of his potential. He'll likely be utilized often in his rookie season, and that could come at Richard's expense.

Our models project Richard for 40.88 carries, 41.02 receptions, 503.07 all-purpose yards and 2.09 total touchdowns.
