Fantasy Football Player Notes

2020 Draft Rankings
Josh Jacobs Note

Jacobs was mighty impressive last season despite playing in a struggling offense and having lost 10 pounds during the season with the flu. He showed he's got some passing game chops but the Raiders might not see him in that role, however, considering they kept Jalen Richard and added Lynn Bowden.

Darren Waller Note

Waller was extremely consistent last year and managed to finish #4 among fantasy tight ends but he was virtually the only receiving threat on the entire team. Now that they grabbed three quality wideouts in the draft, his target share should take a big of a step back. Even so, he is one of the few reliable tight ends.

Henry Ruggs III Note

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.

Derek Carr Note

Carr completed over 70% of his passes last season despite having virtually zero weapons. He has more upside this year but if he falters, Marcus Mariota is right behind him waiting for a chance to take the job.

Hunter Renfrow Note

If you tuned out of the fantasy season prior to Week 16, you may have missed Hunter Renfrow's back-to-back 100-yard games to close out the season. The issue with expecting that to continue? The Raiders have added tons of pass catchers this offseason, including No. 12 overall pick Henry Ruggs. It's very possible that Renfrow turns into a receiver like Cole Beasley was during his time in Dallas. He's going to have a game here and there, but ultimately, his role isn't big enough to warrant a fantasy starter.

Tyrell Williams Note

He went from someone dynasty owners gravitated towards as a top-30 wide receiver last year, to one they want no part of in just one year. I was never aboard the Williams bandwagon, but I didn't envision a scenario where he'd be completely removed from the starting lineup. After they drafted Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards, and Lynn Bowden, it's tough to see a spot for him on the field, and maybe the roster.

Jalen Richard Note

It's odd that Richard was re-signed to the Raiders roster when they said they wanted to get Josh Jacobs more involved in the passing game, as Richard is the primary competition. Not just that, but they then drafted running back/wide receiver Lynn Bowden in the second round. However we slice it, Richard isn't likely to top the 43 targets he got in 2019, which makes him a non-factor in fantasy leagues.

Nelson Agholor Note

Agholor has never made the most of his opportunities, struggling with drops throughout his five-year career. Now with the Raiders, even if a fresh start would have done him some good, there's simply no room for him to find fantasy production. Behind Tyrell Williams, Henry Ruggs, and Hunter Renfrow, not to mention the presence of Bryan Edwards and Zay Jones, it's almost impossible to envision a scenario where fantasy managers are starting Agholor at any point.

Lynn Bowden Jr. Note

The Raiders used a second-round pick on Bowden, who's played numerous positions, though they're officially listing him as a running back. The Raiders clearly have better receivers on their roster heading into this season, and while they did allow DeAndre Washington and his 40 targets walk, it's tough to find very much work available to Bowden. He's a name to watch, though, as you don't spend a second-round pick on a player you don't have plans for. Keep him on waiver wire speed dial.
