Last season, Ruggs had an ADOT (Average Depth of Target) of 17.3. For the skillset that Ruggs brings to the table, this is a gross misuse of his abilities. Ruggs thrives on being able to take short passes and then create after the catch with his speed and explosiveness, which targeting him deep downfield does not allow him to do. This season, with the addition of Brown to play on the outside, we should see Ruggs moved back into the slot. This will allow him to operate underneath and create after the catch, but it's putting a lot of faith in a coaching staff to use him the correct way. At his current ADP though, Ruggs is absolutely worth adding to your roster in hopes that he can be utilized properly. We'll just have to wait and see if it actually happens.

Henry Ruggs III looks 'much better' per Jon Gruden

Raiders HC Jon Gruden says WR Henry Ruggs looks much better than last season and wants to get him more involved.

Fantasy Impact

Ruggs was the first WR taken in the 2020 draft over CeeDee Lamb, Jerry Jeudy, and Justin Jefferson. This was a very questionable move looking back at this pick. Ruggs only caught 26 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns on the season. This is a positive report though, and hopefully he can be used more in the slot, where he excels. He could be a nice sleeper this season if they plan on getting him the ball more.
