The Las Vegas Raiders struggled to a 6-11 record in 2022, but some of these players stood out as unsung heroes this season.
The Las Vegas Raiders may have struggled through a tough 2022 season, losing games where they held big leads in the second half and failing to meet expectations, but some players did stand out. While we know what Josh Jacobs and Davante Adams did, there are also some players who flew under the radar this season and were keys to what success the Raiders did have.
Here, we look at four unsung heroes from the 2022 season.
4 most notable unsung heroes for the Las Vegas Raiders in 2022
No. 4: Jakob Johnson
Josh Jacobs put together one of the more prolific rushing seasons in recent memory, leading the NFL in both rushing yards, and yards from scrimmage. He did it all for this Raiders offense, earning a Pro Bowl nod, and earning a huge paycheck this upcoming offseason.
While Jacobs was impressive, he did have help, and fullback Jakob Johnson proved to be a key player in Year 1 in the Silver and Black. He was replacing a fan favorite in Alec Ingold, and in the end, proved to be well worth the investment.
