Derek Carr Found Open Receivers Under Pressure

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr posted the third-best passer rating (103.7) while under pressure in 2019, and his completion percentage of 66.7 under pressure was the best of any qualifying signal-caller in the league last year. Carr's completion percentage above expectation of plus-5.9 had to do with the fact that he targeted open receivers at a rate of 56.9 percent, which was tops in the NFL. There are a lot of knocks on Carr as a passer and his leash might be short in 2020 with Marcus Mariota behind him, but he did find open receivers in the face of pressure last year with regularity. Not many fantasy owners will be targeting him, even as a QB2, but Carr could surprise and hold off Mariota with some new weapons that the Raiders gave him in the draft, mainly wide receiver Henry Ruggs III.

Josh Jacobs To Win Rushing Title In 2020?

Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs has been pegged by NFL.com contributing columnist Adam Schein to win the league's rushing title. While it is a realistic expectation, he will have some tough competition with the likes of Derrick Henry, Nick Chubb, Ezekiel Elliottand Christian McCaffrey, among others. The 22-year-old appeared in 13 games in 2019 and battled a shoulder ailment for a good portion of the season. He finished with 1,150 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on 242 attempts and was one of the most elusive runners after contact. Regardless of whether he finishes as the top rusher, he is projected to be one of the league's top fantasy producers at his position, especially with the team beefing things up on the receiving end by drafting rookie wideoutHenry Ruggs III in April.

Henry Ruggs III OK After Off-Field Injury

Las Vegas Raiders first-round rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs III (thigh) was involved in an off-the-field accident while helping a friend move, but sources say "he's OK." Ruggs was cut and received a puncture, but the wound isn't serious and it sounds as though he'll be completely fine for whenever teams are allowed to meet for the first time for on-field activities. AL.com is reporting that Ruggs is on crutches after the incident because he hasn't spoken to doctors yet amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Raiders are aware of the incident but aren't commenting. Ruggs was taken 12th overall in April's draft after catching 98 passes for 1,716 yards and 24 touchdowns in his career at Alabama. He'll have opportunity in his rookie season and should immediately be fantasy relevant in single-year formats as a big-play WR3/4.

Clelin Ferrell Bulks Up

Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Clelin Ferrell bulked up this offseason amid an 18-week workout regimen in Miami to put on 13 pounds after a disappointing rookie season that saw the fourth overall pick finish with 4.5 sacks, five deflected passes and 24 solo tackles. Ferrell was considered a reach in the top five of last year's draft coming out of Clemson, and his less-than-stellar first season in the league puts him on the spot to improve in his sophomore campaign. With added weight going into his second year, Ferrell hopefully will be able to use his frame to bully offensive tackles more frequently to help the Raiders improve their stagnant pass rush. You can ignore Ferrell in most IDP formats until he proves that he can get to the opposing QB more often.

Raiders Re-Sign Paul Butler, Place Nick O'Leary On NFI List

The Las Vegas Raiders re-signed tight end Paul Butler to an undisclosed deal on Thursday. In a corresponding move, tight end Nick O'Leary (undisclosed) was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. Butler hasn't appeared in a regular season game in two years in the NFL with the Raiders and Lions. O'Leary was signed as a free agent after catching 13 passes for 109 yards and a touchdown in 12 games (five starts) with the Jaguars and Dolphins in 2019. He was buried on the tight end depth chart to begin with, behind Darren Waller, Jason Witten and Foster Moreau, but now he'll miss the entire 2020 season. Las Vegas also has Derek Carrier and rookie Nick Bowers at the position.
