Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's odd that Richard was re-signed to the Raiders roster when they said they wanted to get Josh Jacobs more involved in the passing game, as Richard is the primary competition. Not just that, but they then drafted running back/wide receiver Lynn Bowden in the second round. However we slice it, Richard isn't likely to top the 43 targets he got in 2019, which makes him a non-factor in fantasy leagues. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Richard is back with the Raiders for another season, but he's more of a thorn in the side for fantasy players than anything else. Richard isn't going to see enough passing volume to be relevant, but he's going to be involved enough in the offense to steal targets from Josh Jacobs. With the addition of Lynn Bowden too, it's unlikely that Richard ever sees enough work to be put into your fantasy lineup this season. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Richard saw a dip in production with Josh Jacobs on the roster, but he'll always be the passing-downs thorn in Jacobs' side. The Raiders gave Richard a two-year extension this offseason, so despite talk of Jacobs' added involvement in the passing game, Richard should continue to hold his role. Unfortunately, that role isn't worth that much, particularly with Lynn Bowden added to the mix. Richard is worth a look in extremely deep PPR formats, nothing more.Freeman carved out a role on the short side of a platoon with Phillip Lindsay in the first half of the season, particularly with his involvement as a receiver. But the Broncos turned over nearly full control of the backfield to Lindsay toward the latter half of the season, and Freeman lost nearly all value. Now, with Melvin Gordon in the fold, it's nearly impossible to see Freeman adding any fantasy value absent multiple injuries. There's no reason to be concerned about him absent extremely deep leagues.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Jalen Richard was reduced to a pass-catcher in 2019 with Josh Jacobs and Deandre Washington combining for the vast majority of carries. Concerningly, that role is also on the rocks with Jacobs expected to improve his catching and Lynn Bowden brought in to mess things up further. Richard remains undraftable but may once again pop up as a waiver add in PPR once bye weeks or a Josh Jacobs injury occur.The Broncos are going to town with RBs. Only two years after drafting Freeman 71st overall it seems he's on the outside looking in. The former Duck simply hasn't done enough with his opportunity and it seems the right choice, though he'll likely retain a small pass-catching role. Without a trade or an injury to Gordon, it's hard to see Freeman playing anything but third wheel. He can be removed from all but the deepest of rosters.

 Call me skeptical but when you've been out touched 319 to 486 your first 2 years by an UDFA, under 2 different coaching regimes, you aren't going to be a star.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
The Raiders are giving Richard a 2-year deal worth $7 million, source said. He gets up to $8 million with $4.6 million fully guaranteed.
