Jacoby Ford | Oakland Raiders | WR
2012 Experience: 3rd Season
|Twitter News||Team Schedule|
Fantasy Football Outlook: Jacoby Ford jumped up to a top 30 receivers on my board at the end of camp, but the emergence of Denarious Moore and a mid-foot sprain (cost him six games) put a damper on his production.
Now, Ford will likely be the third receiver behind Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey and he will continue to work as a return man in special teams. Look to Ford as nothing more than a late round selection in deep leagues.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
One of my deep sleepers for this season, Jacoby Ford took a hit in his fantasy value when he suffered a broken hand at the beginning of camps. It looks like Ford should be ready for week one of the regular season, but he will likely miss more than his early prognosis of two weeks.
Don’t look to Ford as a draft worthy option unless you play in leagues deeper than 12 teams, because his lost time in camp will likely cost him a chance at winning a starting job to begin the season. If Ford should work his way into a starting job (likely to happen at this point) during the year, he will probably be worth a waiver wire flair.

What a spark plug Jacoby Ford turned out to be as the man who ran a 4.2 / 40 at the combine proved he could get it done on an NFL football field and with regularity. Many may view Ford as just a deep threat and special teams man, but I think he has a chance to be more than that as we saw him show a skill set in the second half that could project him to be a regular factor in the Raiders’ offense.
Some around the Raiders camp believe that Ford can be a No.2 receiver and I would have to agree after watching him play last year. Ford proved he could take a hit and stay on the field, which is something I thought he would have trouble with at this level. While Ford isn’t worth a selection at your draft, he is worth keeping an eye on especially if you’re in a league that gives credit for his special teams’ numbers.
