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.

Henry Ruggs III will start in the slot to open the season

Raiders Offensive Coordinator Greg Olson revealed that rookie WR Henry Ruggs III will start the season in the slot.

Fantasy Impact

“We’ll start with Ruggs III in the slot and do some things with Ruggs,” said Olson. “But those guys (Ruggs and Bryan Edwards) are very multiple in what they can do and that’s the goal is to be able to move all of them around to different spots; the one, two or three position at the wide receiver.” This is great news for Ruggs’ value in his rookie season, but it does seem to cut into the value of incumbent slot receiver Hunter Renfrow. Ruggs could easily see 100 targets this year if what Olson says is completely true as Derek Carr loves to throw to his slot guys, as witnessed with Renfrow and Darren Waller last season. Ruggs should be considered a boom-or-bust WR3/WR4 this season.
