The NFL’s Top 100 Players of 2023 list technically has three Raiders players, but only two are currently signed with the team.

Josh Jacobs still remains unsigned with Las Vegas, but he’s one of three Raiders players listed within the top 20 of the NFL’s top 100 players of 2023. Coming in at #12, the highest of the three Raiders, Jacobs is sitting out training camp after he and the organization did not come to an agreement on a long-term deal.

Jacobs, who wasn’t even ranked on the 2022 Top 100 Players list, led the league in rushing last season, running for a career-high 1,653 yards.

The next Raider to appear is right behind Jacobs, with Davante Adams ranking at #13. In his first year with the Silver & Black, Adams recorded 1,516 receiving yards. Two years removed from being the number one player on the list, Adams was able to lead the league in receiving touchdowns with 14.

And finally, coming in at #17, the lone Raiders defender, Maxx Crosby. The defensive end has grown over the last two years, ranking 59th in 2022. Last year, recorded a career-high 12.5 sacks but finished first in the league in tackles for a loss with 22 and second in the league with quarterback hits at 36.
