Henry Ruggs III
WR - LV
This Week Outlook
The Raiders activated Henry Ruggs III from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Ruggs didn't play in Week 15 but he'll return for Saturday's showdown with the Dolphins. It's a brutal matchup for a player who was already struggling to produce consistent fantasy results. Consider the rookie speedster a WR4 for the fantasy finals.
Raiders rookie WR Henry Ruggs III has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and will not play Thursday night against the Chargers.
Ruggs’ absence on Thursday night could mean more snaps for Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards, with Nelson Agholor already having a stranglehold on the WR1 spot. The Raiders passing attack is likely to go through Darren Waller on Thursday night, as it usually does.
Raiders WR Henry Ruggs caught all three of his targets for 18 yards in the Raiders' 44-27 loss to the Colts in Week 14.
Ruggs was the hero last week but fell back to earth against a better defense. He couldn't break a play longer than six yards, so he's back to his role as a third or fourth option in the Raiders' offensive scheme. He faces the Chargers next week and is not a recommended start after not registering a catch in their first matchup this season.
Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III had three receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 31-28 win over the New York Jets in Week 13.
Ruggs had a costly drop early on that led to an interception and also lost a fumble. Despite the errors, Ruggs' speed proved to be the differentiator in the game as he reeled in a game-winning 46-yard catch with five seconds remaining in the game to seal the win for the Raiders. It was an improbable victory that took the Jets drawing up a tank-worthy scheme to pull off. Ruggs scored his second TD of the season, and he'll face a tough Colts defense in Week 14.
Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III caught three passes for 56 yards in the Raiders' 43-6 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.
Ruggs had the longest play of the day for the Raiders, a 36-yard pass from Derek Carr. However, the offense stalled for much of the afternoon, capping Ruggs' production. He tied his season-high with five targets, and the Raiders would be wise to get their speedy wideout more involved in the offense the remainder of the season. He'll face the Jets in Week 13 but can't be trusted in redraft leagues.
