Player Outlook

After seeing the field sparingly with the Vikings to start the 2021 season, Abdullah landed in Carolina and in a role that eventually allowed him to be on the field for around half the team's offensive snaps in five of its last six games. His highlight came in the final game of the year when he secured nine of his 11 targets for 56 receiving yards while also rushing for 26 yards on seven carries and gaining 116 yards on four kick returns. That was enough to land him a chance with the Raiders this offseason, though he's likely no better than fourth on the depth chart behind Josh Jacobs, Kenyan Drake and rookie Zamir White. That makes Abdullah only worth putting on the watch list in deeper leagues to see if he can carve out a receiving role should he make the Raiders.

Player News
  • Abdullah has signed a contract with the Raiders. In 17 games (11 with the Panthers and six with the Vikings) last season, the 2015 second-rounder recorded 51 carries for 166 yards and 38 catches for 289 yards with one TD. He'll provide the Raiders -- who've also added Brandon Bolden in free agency -- with further running back depth behind Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake, while also giving the team another option as a kick returner.

  • Abdullah rushed seven times for 26 yards and caught 9 of 11 targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 41-17 loss to the Buccaneers. Abdullah ended the season by leading the Panthers in touches, marking his biggest workload of the campaign. Unsurprisingly, that involvement also resulted in Abdullah's best yardage output, ranking second on Carolina in both rushing and receiving yards Sunday, with his nine grabs comfortably setting a new career high. After joining the Panthers midway through the season, Abdullah's all-purpose ability offered a flexible option in Christian McCaffrey's (ankle) extended absence. Finishing with 51 carries for 166 yards and 38 catches on 53 targets for 289 more yards, Abdullah's production from 17 games split between the Panthers and Vikings should garner him interest as a free agent this offseason, especially when considering his added value as a kickoff returner.

  • Abdullah rushed six times for 21 yards and caught all four of his targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 18-10 loss to the Saints. Abdullah saw Chuba Hubbard lead the Panthers with 17 carries for 55 yards and a touchdown, but he nonetheless garnered a double-digit amount of touches himself. While most of his yards came on two plays -- a 15-yard rush and 17-yard catch -- Abdullah actually led Carolina in receptions on the day. The veteran's yardage ceiling and scoring potential are both restricted, but his underneath presence in a struggling offense gives him lukewarm value heading into Week 18's finale versus the Buccaneers.

  • Abdullah rushed twice for one yard and caught three of six targets for eight yards in Sunday's 32-6 loss to the Buccaneers. Abdullah played a third of Carolina's offensive snaps but couldn't get anything going against a stringy Tampa Bay defense. In fact, the tailback's biggest impact came on special teams, where he returned three kickoffs for 76 yards. Although another tough matchup awaits Week 17 versus the Saints, the flow of that contest could present a few opportunities for Abdullah to make an impact as a pass catcher.

  • Abdullah ran for seven yards on four carries and caught four passes for 48 yards and one touchdown on four targets against Buffalo on Sunday. While rookie Chuba Hubbard again functioned as Carolina's rushing specialist at running back by taking eight carries for 40 yards, Abdullah was clearly the preferred receiving option out of the backfield Sunday. That workload split might be how the Panthers ride out the rest of their wretched 2021 season, and against Tampa Bay in Week 16, the matchup only figures to get tougher for the Carolina ground attack.
