Raiders Defense Adds Takk McKinley Off Waivers

The Las Vegas Raiders made a splash earlier Monday by signing Vic Beasley to their practice squad, following up that announcement by claiming outside linebacker/defensive end Takk McKinley off of waivers. McKinley has already failed a physical with two different organizations, with the Raiders hoping to add him to their defense for the stretch run of the 2020 season. In four starts with the Falcons this year, McKinley has compiled eight tackles, seven quarterback hits, one pass defended, and one sack. The move may come as particularly appealing to McKinley, who could get a chance to face Atlanta as soon as Sunday, as the Raiders are set to travel to take on the Falcons in Week 12. Even with McKinley in the mix, the Raiders defense remains outside of fantasy consideration in all but the deepest of season-long formats.

Raiders Defense Signs Vic Beasley

The Las Vegas Raiders signed former Falcons and Titans outside linebacker Vic Beasley to their practice squad on Monday. Beasley didn't work out for the Titans this year and was released three weeks ago after recording only three combined tackles and one forced fumble in five games in 2020. Beasley was the eighth overall pick by the Falcons in the 2015 draft out of Clemson, and he excelled as an inside linebacker with Atlanta in 2016. Beasley recorded a league-high six forced fumbles (one for a touchdown) and 15.5 sacks that year on his way to being named a Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro. Since then, though, the 28-year-old has 18 sacks in four seasons. He'll provide intriguing pass-rushing depth for Las Vegas.

Raiders Defense Allows 35 Points

The Raiders defense had a tough time against the Chiefs explosive offense, allowing 35 points in the loss. They allowed 460 yards of offense, and they also struggled to get off the field on 3rd and 4th down. They have now allowed 30 points or more in half of their games and also struggle to force turnovers and get sacks. They picked off Patrick Mahomes in the red zone late in the first half, but that was about the only bright spot for this defense. They take on a streaky Falcons offense next week, and it will be very difficult to trust them.

Henry Ruggs III Hardly Featured In Offense

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III was mostly absent in a Week 11 matchup against the Chiefs, catching one pass on his only target for five yards and getting one rushing attempt that went for 12 yards. Ruggs played in over half the team's snaps, but Derek Carr clearly did not look his way for the majority of the game. Ruggs has seen five targets in just one game this season, and he has failed to catch more than three passes in any game. He takes on a bad Falcons secondary next week, but he is mostly off the fantasy radar at this time.

Hunter Renfrow Catches Two Passes

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow caught just two passes for 37 yards in a Sunday night loss against the Chiefs. This marks three straight games where Renfrow has had only two receptions. He also played in just 34 percent of snaps, which was his lowest since Week 8. Renfrow is a solid possession receiver that can move the chains, but his fantasy ceiling is incredibly low. He is averaging just three catches for about 43 yards per game and has found the end zone just two times all year. Renfrow will take on the Falcons next week, and it is reasonable to expect a similar performance.
