Henry Ruggs III Paces Team In Receiving Yards

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III had a breakout performance, catching two passes for 118 yards and a touchdown on three targets. Most of Ruggs' yards came via a 72-yard touchdown pass. Ruggs showed why the Raiders drafted him with their first pick of the draft. He has blazing speed and big-play potential. This style of play will make him a volatile fantasy option going forward. He can have games like this where he gets loose in the secondary and catches a long touchdown pass. He can also have games like he had earlier in the season where he catches just one pass on a couple targets. He will be a risky fantasy option in most weeks but is certainly worth considering as a starting option. He returns to the field in Week 7 against the Buccaneers.

Henry Ruggs III Will Be Active For Week 5

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III (knee/hamstring) will be active on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs, as will right tackle Trent Brown. The speedster out of Alabama was the first wide receiver taken in this year's NFL Draft but has played in just two games so far, playing between 60 and 70 percent of snaps in each one. Ruggs's speed gives him upside, but he can't really be trusted as more than a WR4 option against this Chiefs secondary.

Henry Ruggs III Questionable Against Chiefs

Las Vegas Raiders rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs III (hamstring, knee) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against the Chiefs. Ruggs practiced in full on both Thursday and Friday, so he's expected to make his return against KC. However, the first-round rookie hasn't played since Week 2, so he might not play a full complement of snaps if he's back on the field. The Chiefs have also been pretty stingy against wide receivers in 2020, so it's just not worth the risk to put Riggs into your weekly lineups. Hunter Renfrow should continue to see more looks, but even he is a risky flex option in deeper leagues. Tight end Darren Waller remains the only trustworthy Raiders pass-catcher in this offense through four weeks.
