Former Raiders WR Nelson Agholor has agreed to terms on a two-year, $26M deal with the New England Patriots.
Check back shortly for the fantasy impact.
Las Vegas Raiders WR Nelson Agholor is at the end of his one-year contract but according to Raiders' GM Mike Mayock, the Raiders "would love" to bring the wideout back in 2021.
Agholor exceeded expectations in his first year with the Raiders, hauling in 48 receptions for 896 yards and eight touchdowns across all 16 games in 2020. His speed attributed to the success of the Raiders offense in 2020, spreading the field and making it easier for quarterback Derek Carr to operate. Mayock went on to say, "We’d love to have Nelly (Agholor) back. That’s a guy that I can’t tell you how much appreciation I have for." After being ridiculed for multiple dropped passes while playing for the Philadelphia Eagles back in the 2019 season, Agholor proved he can be a team's WR1. The wideout will hit the free-agent market if he is unable or unwilling to sign a new contract with Las Vegas in 2021. Should he re-sign with the Raiders, Agholor will continue competing for targets with star tight-end Darren Waller and the young but athletic Henry Ruggs III in 2021, limiting his fantasy upside but remaining a solid WR3/Flex option in PPR formats.
WR Nelson Agholor caught one pass for 57 yards in the Raiders' 32-31 win over the Broncos in Week 17.
Agholor was a revelation for the Raiders, putting up 48 receptions with a career-high 896 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in his first season. He enjoyed a strong comeback campaign and was the best actual receiver for the Raiders across 16 games. He performed as a WR2 from Week 4 on, though he was often touchdown-dependent. He'll be worth a late-round pick next season given his rapport with Derek Carr and comfortability in the Raiders' offense.
Raiders WR Nelson Agholor caught five passes for 155 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 26-25 loss to the Dolphins in Week 16.
Agholor took an 85-yard pass from Derek Carr late in the fourth quarter to the house and finished the game leading all Raiders receivers in yards. He also set a new career-high with 155 receiving yards. Agholor enjoyed one of the biggest comeback campaigns this season, seeing a resurgence with the Raiders, and will likely continue being their number one wideout heading into next season. Through 15 games this year, Agholor amassed 47 receptions for 839 yards (career-high) with eight touchdowns.
Raiders WR Nelson Agholor caught four passes for 49 yards in the Raiders' 30-27 overtime loss to the Chargers.
Agholor finished second in receiving yards and targets for the Raiders. The Raiders' top wideout remains a WR2 going up against the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.
