Last season, Ruggs had an ADOT (Average Depth of Target) of 17.3. For the skillset that Ruggs brings to the table, this is a gross misuse of his abilities. Ruggs thrives on being able to take short passes and then create after the catch with his speed and explosiveness, which targeting him deep downfield does not allow him to do. Unfortunately, it appears that this is how the Raiders are going to continue to utilize the speedster receiver. With that being said, at his current ADP, Ruggs is absolutely worth adding to your roster in hopes that he can take that second-year leap and be more involved in this offense. We'll just have to wait and see if it actually happens.Hardman's going to be relied upon a little bit more this year than in season's past due to the departure of Sammy Watkins. There's a gap here in this receiving corps where someone else will need to step up and carry their weight. Hardman has all the tools to do just that, but he seemingly hasn't been able to put it together for fantasy purposes yet. At his current ADP, it's worth taking the shot on him to see if he can turn into that reliable weekly starter, but it's important to exercise caution. We could be hyping up another breakout season only to be disappointed again.

Ruggs rookie season was a major disappointment. In fairness to him Jon Gruden's offesne is very complex and covid protocols hurt a lot of rookies with their development. A full offseason should help 2020 rookies like Ruggs. He also battled injuries, hurting his knee in week 1. Ruggs still has world class speed. He's a threat to score anytime he touches the ball. The concern is he doesn't get the ball enough. His ADP is pretty cheap (12th round), but if he doesn't get more targets it won't matter. Worth a shot based on his talent & affordable price tag.Sammy Watkins departure opens up a spot on one of the most explosive passing attacks in the NFL. The question- will it be Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson, or Byron Pringle who benefits the most? If Hardman get the reps he can take the top off the defense. The good thing is he'll see single coverage with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce drawing defenses attention. Anytime Hardman touches it he can take it the distance. Pay close attention to this situation in the preseason. The Chiefs are a fantasy football goldmine. Hardman's 13th round ADP is cheap given the upside.

You'd think that when a team spends the No. 12 overall pick on a wide receiver, they'd actually find ways to use him, right? That didn't happen with Ruggs. There wasn't a game in 2020 where he saw more than five targets or caught more than three receptions. We did see the Raiders move on from Nelson Agholor, but he was quickly replaced by John Brown. It's no secret that Brown has struggled to stay healthy, which could be the door Ruggs needs to get more targets. He shouldn't need an injury to get targets, but if this Raiders coaching staff told us anything last year, it's that they don't know how to best utilize Ruggs.We've watched Hardman be one of the most efficient wide receivers in the league over the last two years, but it hasn't meant much to fantasy managers. For whatever reason, Andy Reid hasn't used Hardman in a full-time role, which meant he saw fewer than five targets in 11-of-16 games last year. Now that Sammy Watkins is gone, does his role grow, or does Reid continue to use him sparingly. If we hear that Hardman is being taken off special teams, it would be a massive boost to his stock. There's certainly upside with him, but we need Reid to have a change of heart for it to be recognized.

 Post -hype sleeper? or bust? I should probably be drafting him some, I have zero shares.

Of all the rookie receivers last year, Ruggs looked to be in perhaps the best spot to provide immediate value given the truncated offseason. Most expected him to be the recipient of quick passes and just use his speed where he didn't need much time to develop a rapport with Derek Carr. Unfortunately, the Raiders completely misused Ruggs, as he had an aDOT of 17.4, second highest in the game among receivers with at least 30 targets, and was targeted downfield almost non-stop. Injuries were a part of it, of course, as Ruggs played more on the outside after Bryan Edwards got hurt, but it never seemed like the Raiders understood Ruggs' strengths. With another offseason, hopefully they will, and given the draft capital used on him, the team is surely looking to find ways for him to succeed this year. Don't draft him as a fantasy starter, but he has plenty of upside for your bench.

 This is the "make or break" season for Mecole Hardman. Explosiveness and speed aside, Hardman has yet to establish himself as a integral part of the Chiefs offense. With Sammy Watkins off to Baltimore, the future is now for Hardman. The Chiefs offense has yet to show a consistent passing role for anyone past Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, so don't spend too much draft capital to see if Hardman makes that third year jump.
