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.When healthy, DeSean Jackson is a phenomenal deep threat WR with decent fantasy value but the guy is never healthy. In his 12-year career, Jackson has played 16 games just two times. Now the Eagles have added WRs both through the draft and free agency. You can't trust Jackson to stay healthy anymore and that's a deal-breaker.
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.We only got to see Jackson in Doug Pederson's offense for one full game before the wheels fell off and Jackson needed to be shut down. In that game, he caught 8-of-9 targets for 154 yards and two touchdowns. The Eagles drafted a lot of speed, but Jackson will be there to mentor them and will be starting in 2WR sets.
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.DeSean Jackson is getting a surprising amount of hype for a 33-year-old coming off a major injury which derailed the majority of his 2019 season. He does have massive upside though, especially on a weekly basis as evidenced by his Week 1 explosion for 154 yards and 2 TDs last season. With a heap of new weapons in town though, it's hard to see much chance DJax replicates anything close to his original Eagles success. The Alshon Jeffery injury certainly helps but Jackson is still far from a certainty. Take him in Best Ball but use caution in other leagues as there's a good chance he'll have as many bust weeks as boom weeks.
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.With Alshon Jeffery projected to start the season on the PUP list, Jackson is a screaming steal at his current ADP. We've seen what Jackson can do when he's fully healthy in this offense and right now, Jackson is the smartest selection you can make in the late rounds of your draft. He can be plugged in immediately as a WR2/WR3 into your lineup and he'll still have value as long as he stays healthy.
