Agholor bounced back last season in Las Vegas and worked his way into a pretty sizable contract from New England via free agency. While the opportunity is certainly going to be in front of Agholor to take on a larger role, it might not exactly lead to a ton of fantasy football production. This offense should run through the TEs (Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry) with Agholor being asked to stretch the field and open things up underneath. With Newton's arm strength not being anywhere near what it once was, the opportunities for Agholor might not be as consistent as we might hope for fantasy purposes. He'll have some appeal as a boom-or-bust FLEX play most weeks, but he's unlikely to step into this offense and assert himself as the unquestioned No. 1 target. My Very Early Projection: 46-668-4 receiving.

After five years of dropped passes in Philly, former first round pick Nelson Agholor's move to Las Vegas created barely a blip on the radar. Nobody took pre-season reports about Jon Gruden's love for him seriously, after all, he's the guy crazy for Nathan Peterman! But after a very slow start, Agholor had a career year in 2020 and now moves to free agency in an intriguing position. With Ruggs, Edwards and Renfrow all locked in for several more seasons and the Raiders in an awkward cap situation, Agholor can either take a cheap contract and likely maintain his top outside receiver role, or he can move elsewhere and see what happens. With Tyrell Williams a free drop, I'd expect Agholor to gamble on Vegas and that could make him a great dynasty value pick.
