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.The landing spot in Minnesota is a good thing for Jefferson, as Stefon Diggs is gone and Adam Thielen is going to be 30 years old (with back problems) at the start of the season. But for now, Jefferson is just a middling WR4 due to the low volume available in the Vikings offense.
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.Justin Jefferson has regularly been under-estimated compared to the big three of Ruggs, Lamb and Jeudy and that's simply not an accurate representation of his ability. Now falling into a brilliant opportunity in the wide-open Minnesota back-field, Jefferson will get the perfect chance to prove himself and I believe he's the rookie you want in 2020. He's expected to play mostly out of the slot but showed in 2018 that he's very capable of bouncing outside so he should play on most downs. Adam Thielen's stats prove that the slot snaps are most valuable in Minnesota so Jefferson should be the hot ticket in town. Excitingly, he's available well into the double-digit rounds and is the perfect late-round dart throw, especially in PPR.

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

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.Justin Jefferson landed in a beautiful spot for fantasy football, as he steps in alongside Adam Thielen and will assume the Stefon Diggs role. Thielen and Jefferson are the only true players there that should command targets and we know that Thielen has started to deal with some injuries the past couple of years. Jefferson should easily see over 100 targets in year one and may bring even more upside if something were to happen to Adam Thielen.

Derek Carr on attempts 20+ yards: 18/48 568 yards, 4TDs Ranks among QBs that started at least 4 games Deep% - 30th, percentage of targets attempted 20 yards or more downfield DATT - 25th ADJ% - 17th  the % of aimed passes thrown on target (completions + drops / aimed) Passer Rating - 17th2019 Slot % Diggs - 14.7 Thielen - 29.3 Bisi - 34 Beebe - 52.5 (barely played) Justin Jefferson is going to be a WR2 right out of the gate. His biggest obstacle? Not Adam Thielen, but passing volume. No one had over 100 targets and Cook was 2nd on the team with 63. Injuries played a part in this but the Vikings went from 606 ATT in 2018, fired Defilippo, 466 ATT in 2019. The slot roll was basically a committee in 2019, Jefferson should consolidate that in 2020
