Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Maybe the most electrifying player from this year's draft class, regardless of position, Henry Ruggs finds himself in Oakland which doesn't seem like the best possible fit for his skill set. Ruggs has elite speed which should be utilized deep down the field but Derek Carr has never been known as someone who throws many deep balls. Even still, Ruggs is supremely talented and will have some huge games but expect there to be more down weeks than up.Brandon Aiyuk could not have landed in a better spot than San Francisco. They love getting their WRs the ball in space and Aiyuk is dangerous with the ball in his hands. Add the fact that Deebo Samuel is slated to miss at least the first few weeks, and we could have an immediate contributor out of Aiyuk.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He was the first wide receiver off the board and now goes to a team where there's plenty of opportunity available. Ruggs isn't a wide receiver who should demand anywhere close to 120-plus targets, but knowing the equity used to acquire him, he should have no issue approaching the 100 target mark, which puts him on the WR3/4 radar, as he has game-breaking upside.When a receiver is drafted in the first round, he's starting immediately. When that player was traded up for, they already have a plan in mind. Aiyuk is someone who can stretch the field, while Deebo Samuel and George Kittle work the underneath part of the field. The 49ers did not take very many deep shots last year, which doesn't bode well for Aiyuk from a fantasy perspective, but it could've been that they didn't have the personnel necessary to do so. He's just a late-round bench stash right now who will have some big weeks.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
This new Raiders offence has a lot of weapons. Josh Jacobs will do most of the hard work on the ground and that's the key to this offence but through the air there are targets aplenty. Darren Waller, Tyrell Williams, Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards, Hunter Renfrow, Lynn Bowden, Jalen Richard and Devontae Booker will all have a chance to be involved so that really limits the upside for the rookie deep threat. The news that Ruggs may start in the slot gives him far more upside but as a rookie, he's still likely to be limited in his rookie season.The 49ers game plan is very simple. Run, run, throw to George Kittle, give Deebo Samuel a crack, run some more. It's simple but effective too and will only change if a) the defence sucks (it won't) or b) someone gets injured. Deebo's inury has therefore opened the door just a little, but it seems far more like the extra targets available from Sanders and perhaps Samuel's absence will be spread between Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne and perhaps some Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor. There's hence simply not enough volume to justify the rookie as a worthwhile pick in most leagues, especially given the role isn't guaranteed. Because he's very cheap, you can draft him for depth, just don't expect a league winner.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
You know the Raiders are excited about Ruggs, drafting him as the first receiver off the board. It's going to be tough for any rookie receiver to succeed this year given the lack of preseason games, but Ruggs is in a good situation all things considered. His incredible speed (he scored a touchdown on a quarter of his receptions in college) should play well with Derek Carr, so there should be plenty of short routes where Ruggs can simply let his wheels do the work after the catch. In other words, chemistry with Carr may not be quite as important as it would be with other rookie wide receivers given Ruggs' likely low average depth of target, so he's an ideal bench receiver to stash and see what he can do early in the year. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Henry Ruggs going first off the board was a bit of a shocker to the Las Vegas Raiders, but he fits this offense perfectly and will step in and assume the Tyrell Williams role. This offense now has a bit more competition for targets than it did last year, but Ruggs is still going to have an impact for fantasy football. He won't be a steady week in and week out contributor, most likely, but he's someone you can plug into your lineup every week to bring tremendous upside. His pre-draft ranking in my system of WR2 has him still up here towards the top of the board.Brandon Aiyuk was one of my most confusing evaluations throughout the pre-draft process and my grade reflects that. He has the draft capital, but Aiyuk's best utilized as a deep-passing option and that doesn't exactly fit Garropolo's skillset. Aiyuk may be one of the players that's better for a NFL offense than for fantasy football.
