Raiders' Jalen Richard: Escapes with minor injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard injured his ribs during Sunday's 24-21 win over Pittsburgh, but coach Jon Gruden expects the running back to be okay, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Richard didn't appear to have any limitations during the upset win, gaining 24 yards on eight carries and five yards on one reception while playing 49 percent of the snaps on offense. His snap share landed between 39 and 51 percent each of the past nine games, but the production hasn't been nearly as consistent, with Richard falling shy of 30 scrimmage yards two of the past three weeks. DeAndre Washington would be the obvious choice to fill in on passing downs if Richard can't play Week 15 at Cincinnati.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Blows up for 126 offensive yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard tallied 95 rushing yards on six carries with one lost fumble, adding three receptions for 31 yards during Sunday's 40-33 loss to Kansas City.

Richard's skills as a pass catcher were on full display Sunday, but even more notably, he accounted for a career-high 95 rushing yards against the Chiefs' No. 18 rush defense (had averaged 2.7 carries for 10.8 yards per game through Week 12). The 25-year-old scatback averaged a modest 4.0 YPC entering the weekend, but he was electrifying on the ground in this one, accounting for seven or more yards on five of his six attempts, and four times dashing for gains of 16-plus yards. Fantasy players will be intrigued to see the carries split in Week 14 between him and Doug Martin, but Pittsburgh excels at defending what Richard does best, holding running backs to fewer than 50 receptions and 350 receiving yards in 2018 (top five in both categories).

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Quiet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard gained one yard on his lone carry and caught two of four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Ravens.

Richard hadn't been dealt less than four touches since playing just eight offensive snaps in Week 2, so his lack of involvement Sunday came as a bit of a surprise especially given the game flow. The Raiders spent the entire second half in comeback mode, but rookie receiver Marcell Ateman hogged a majority of the looks from quarterback Derek Carr with 10 targets. Oakland could be playing from behind again in Week 13 against the 9-2 Chiefs.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Gets going on ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard amounted 61 yards rushing on 11 attempts, adding three catches for 32 yards during Sunday's 23-21 win against Arizona.

The third-year scatback far exceeded his previous season high in rushing yards (24), dicing up the Cardinals' bottom-five rush defense for 5.5 yards per carry. Richard and third-string back DeAndre Washington both benefited from expanded roles on the ground after starter Doug Martin suffered an ankle injury in the first half that sidelined him for the final two quarters. So long as Martin's injury doesn't affect his availability for the Week 12 game against the Ravens, Richard's future production should derive from in the passing game, as he nearly 80 percent of his yards from scrimmage this season have come as a receiver. Richard will have his work cut out for him next week while he matches up with a Baltimore defense that has allowed an NFL-low 258 receiving yards to backs in 2018.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Totals 59 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard rushed three times for seven yards and added 52 more while hauling in five of his six targets in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Chargers.

Richard led the team in receptions for the second straight week, thanks once again to garbage time. The 25-year-old saw just one of his targets in the first half, but as long as the Raiders are playing from behind most weeks, he should continue to have the chance to contribute via second-half dump-off passes, and he did here. The Southern Mississippi product has at least four catches and 45 yards in each of his last five games, all blowout losses.
