Raiders' Jalen Richard: Finishes with only 261 total yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard finished 2020 with a 22/123/1 rushing line and 19/138/0 receiving line in 13 games.

Richard didn't provide much of a return in the first season of a two-year, $7 million extension, with his role largely limited to obvious passing situations or garbage time. Even if they aren't ready to use Josh Jacobs in a three-down role, the Raiders aren't likely to bring Richard back at his scheduled $3.5 million cap hit for 2021. His return to the team likely would hinge on accepting a pay cut.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Hits COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders placed Richard on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Richard's placement on the list indicates that he's either tested positive for the virus or has been deemed a close contact of an infected person or persons. If Richard doesn't clear all health-related protocols and is ineligible to play in Sunday's season finale against Denver, Theo Riddick would step in as Las Vegas' No. 3 running back behind Josh Jacobs and Devontae Booker.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Totals 23 yards on three touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard rushed for 19 yards on two carries and caught his only target for four yards in Saturday's 26-25 loss to the Dolphins.

Despite being dealt only three touches, Richard managed to produce more total yards than fellow backup running back Devontae Booker on Saturday. The duo is slated to continue providing depth behind starter Josh Jacobs in Week 17, but Richard could see a couple more opportunities with the Raiders officially removed from playoff contention.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Full-go at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (chest) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, Josh Dubow of the Associated Press reports.

Richard reinjured his sternum before last Thursday's loss to the Chargers. He played through the injury but logged just 10 total snaps. With a full-speed practice to start the week, Richard should be 100 percent for a Week 16 matchup against the Dolphins.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Reinjured in pregame warmups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard reinjured his sternum during pregame warmups Thursday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Richard still managed to suit up against the Chargers and draw five targets, but his injury paved the way for Theo Riddick to handle a slight uptick in snaps. The trusty change-of-pace man will benefit from a few extra days of rest before the Raiders face the Dolphins on Dec. 26.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Draws five targets in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard rushed twice for 10 yards and caught four of five targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Colts.

Despite the return of starting running back Josh Jacobs (ankle), Richard managed to match his season high of four receptions as the Colts' lead grew throughout the second half. Richard has logged more than 20 offensive snaps in back-to-back contests, but his role figures to once again be game-script dependent on Thursday Night Football against the Chargers this week.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: No. 2 role translates to five touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard rushed for 11 yards on four carries and caught his only target for six yards in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Jets.

Richard handled primary backup duties at running back with Josh Jacobs (ankle) sidelined, but the former was dealt just five touches in 32 offensive snaps Sunday. Fill-in starter Devontae Booker couldn't get much going either with 51 total yards on 17 touches, but he figures to remain the No. 1 option in Week 14 against the Colts if Jacobs is forced to miss another contest.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Could factor into Week 13 game plan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard, who has missed the last two games, may play a bigger role than normal Sunday versus the Jets with Josh Jacobs (ankle) ruled out, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Richard was sidelined of late due to a chest injury and illness, but he's poised to help fill in with Jacobs on the pine. Still, Devontae Booker is expected to lead the Raiders backfield, so Richard could merely see a little extra volume as a pass catcher. On the campaign, Richard has hauled in 12 of 15 targets for 90 yards while averaging 5.9 YPC on his 14 rushes.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Back to work Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (illness/chest) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Richard missed last week's loss to the Falcons with an illness, but as evidenced by this news, he appears on track to return in Week 13. Now healthy, Richard will likely assume his usual kick return role, as well as work as a change-of-pace back behind Josh Jacobs (ankle) and Devontae Booker for Sunday's game against the Jets.

November 29, 2020 01:16 PM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: Officially out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

This illness hasn't been linked to COVID-19, so Richard has a chance to return next week against the Jets. Josh Jacobs should handle a lion's share of the backfield work Sunday, while Devontae Booker and, to a lesser extent, Alec Ingold rotate in.

November 29, 2020 11:20 AM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: Not expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (illness) isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against the Falcons, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

This will become official when the Raiders reveal their inactives list around 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. This illness isn't related to COVID-19. Richard's absence leaves Josh Jacobs, Devontae Booker and fullback Alec Ingold as the lone options in the backfield.

November 27, 2020 08:44 PM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (chest) is absent from the Raiders' final injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Falcons, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

After consecutive days being limited at practice, Richard was a full participant Friday. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual role providing depth in the backfield behind Josh Jacobs and Devontae Booker.

November 25, 2020 11:16 PM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (chest) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday.

It's the first time Richard has practiced since suffering the chest injury Week 10 against the Broncos. The 27-year-old could avoid an injury designation if he puts in a full practice Thursday or Friday.

November 22, 2020 07:04 PM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (chest) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Richard will be forced to miss his first game of the season due to a chest injury. With Theo Riddick (undisclosed) on the COVID-19 list, the Raiders won't have the benefit of much depth behind Josh Jacobs and Devontae Booker on Sunday.

November 20, 2020 05:16 PM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: Deemed questionable for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Richard didn't practice all week after suffering a chest injury in last Sunday's win over the Broncos, so he may be on the wrong side of questionable. Regardless, Devontae Booker appears to have usurped Richard as the No. 2 running back behind Josh Jacobs, so Richard isn't expected to play much if he suits up. Theo Riddick likely will handle some work on passing downs if Richard is ruled out.

November 19, 2020 07:36 PM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: Still missing practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (chest) didn't suit up in Thursday's practice, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Richard missed practice for the second straight day dealing with the chest injury he suffered in last week's win over the Broncos. Richard is now in danger of missing Sunday night's game against the Chiefs, which would mean Theo Riddick could be active for the contest. Richard will likely need to log some form of practice time Friday to have a chance to play in Week 11.

November 18, 2020 11:12 PM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: Unable to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (chest) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Richard left early in this past Sunday's win over the Broncos, but postgame X-rays didn't reveal a serious injury. Nevertheless, his injury could still force him to miss some time. Devontae Booker has usurped Richard as the No. 2 behind Josh Jacobs anyway, but Theo Riddick could be active for this Sunday's game against the Chiefs if Richard can't go.

November 16, 2020 04:12 PM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: X-rays come back negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard (chest) received negative results from his postgame X-rays, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Richard was forced out of Sunday's 37-12 win over the Broncos in the first half, before he had the opportunity to log a carry or be targeted. Devontae Booker impressed in his increased opportunity after Richard's departure, scoring twice while handling 16 carries for 81 yards. It's certainly encouraging that Richard's X-rays didn't reveal a serious injury, but a timetable for his recovery remains undisclosed.

Raiders' Jalen Richard: Picks up chest injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard was forced out of Sunday's game against the Broncos with a chest injury.

Richard didn't receive a carry or a target before exiting in the first half. He gets most of his tread on passing downs, and now Josh Jacobs and Devontae Booker are the only remaining tailbacks for Las Vegas.

November 9, 2020 10:48 AM
Raiders' Jalen Richard: Limited role in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richard rushed once for three yards and caught his only target for 19 yards in Sunday's 31-26 win over the Chargers.

Richard was dealt just two touches as the Raiders were able to rely on fellow running backs Josh Jacobs and Devontae Booker with a lead for much of the second half. Richard's nine offensive snaps also marked a low since the season opener. The Raiders will be favored Week 10 against the Broncos, which might not bode well for Richard's usage if they're able to get ahead relatively early again.
