Nelson Agholor Week 8 Outlook - Raiders at Browns

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 29th 2020, 8:42am EDT

It's kind of crazy what past relationships with players can do with our perception. Remember when we all didn't want to buy into Robby Anderson because he broke our hearts over and over while in New York? Well, we might be there with Agholor now, too. He's now scored in 4-of-6 games this season despite seeing more than four targets just once. His nine targets against the Bucs last week was more than Tyrell Williams saw in any one game last year, yet everyone viewed him as a WR3/4 option most weeks. It was just one week, but we need to pay attention to him moving forward. He has earned the role he has with the Raiders. Could he find the end zone again? Wide receivers have been targeted 33 times in the red zone against the Browns, which is easily the highest number in the league, as no other team has faced more than 22 red zone targets to wide receivers. The Browns have allowed 13 wide receivers to finish as the WR37 or better, which is kind of remarkable considering we're just seven weeks into the season. Agholor leads the Raiders' wide receivers in routes run over their last two games. He's far from a lock for production, but given the matchup, he's in the WR4 conversation.
