  • Richard had six carries for 58 yards and a touchdown and two receptions for 51 yards (two targets) in Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets. Richard displayed similar explosiveness last season when he ran for a 75-yard touchdown on the first carry of his career. He finished the year with five carries of 20-plus yards and a 5.9 average on only 83 totes, but he and DeAndre Washington both struggled when a Latavius Murray injury forced them into larger roles. Richard finds himself in a similar position this season behind Marshawn Lynch, though he's at least making an early case to get more change-of-pace work than Washington. Richard had gains of 51 and 39 yards while Sunday's game was still somewhat competitive, but five of his eight touches occurred on the garbage-time final drive.

  • Richard rushed for 22 yards on five carries to go along with one reception for six yards on one target during Sunday's win over the Titans. Richard outperformed fellow backup DeAndre Washington in the rushing game during the Raiders' Week 1 victory, as Richard averaged 4.4 yards per carry while Washington ran for just four yards on three attempts. As expected, Washington played more of a role in the passing game with two catches for 18 yards. Washington was given just two more snaps than Richard, as the duo combined to be on the field for 30 plays while starter Marshawn Lynch earned 32 snaps of his own. Richard's fantasy value figures to remain limited as Lynch and Washington remain healthy.

  • Richard is listed ahead of DeAndre Washington on the Raiders' running back depth chart heading into their Week 1 matchup against the Titans, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Richard and fellow second-year rusher Washington are both set to compete for carries behind veteran Marshawn Lynch, though Washington likely has the upper hand for snaps on passing downs. Washington was the more productive rusher out of the trio throughout the preseason with an average of 4.1 yards per carry, though it came on a smaller sample size than Richard. Regardless of their slotting on the depth chart, expect Richard and Washington to remain complements off the bench while Lynch is healthy.

  • Raiders' Jalen Richard: Carries three times
    By RotoWire Staff

    Richard had three carries for 18 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams. Richard didn't get any work until both Marshawn Lynch and DeAndre Washington were done for the night. Washington has operated as the second-string back throughout training camp and the first two weeks of the preseason, but that doesn't mean Richard won't also stay involved in the offense with a chance-of-pace role, as was the case last season. Washington's skill as a receiver does make him the favorite for passing-down work, which is when Lynch figures to regularly come off the field.

  • Raiders' Jalen Richard: Third-stringer thus far
    By RotoWire Staff

    Richard has been behind DeAndre Washington in the pecking order thus far in training camp, Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Richard and Washington have seesawed between the second- and third-string running back spots on Oakland's depth chart since entering the league last season. While Richard finished with slightly more yards and one more touchdown, he and Washington took turns trying to get the hot hand behind Latavius Murray as rookies. With Marshawn Lynch in the fold this time around, both players figure destined for backup duties again, but it appears Washington has the early leg up on Richard for snaps. Like last year, Richard and Washington should see fairly fluid involvement, but their respective outputs during the preseason could determine who enters Week 1 as Lynch's top alternative.
