Raiders coach Jon Gruden was impressed with how rookie wideout Henry Ruggs III played through a knee injury in Week 1. (San Jose Mercury News)

Fantasy Impact:

“I like the fact that he came back and played through something,” Gruden elaborated. “That’s what the great ones do. They play through pain, they play through difficult situations. He did that.” It's a nice endorsement for the rookie receiver, and it could help funnel targets his way when he's at full health. Being fully healthy is the key, however, as Ruggs is likely to be limited in practice this week. The Saints are on deck for Gruden's Raiders this coming Monday night.
