Just how bad has it gotten for Ruggs? Well, NFL's NextGenStats requires 28 targets to be a part of the results. Ruggs is no longer part of the results. It's maddening and confusing, as he's averaging 9.8 yards per target, so he hasn't been bad or anything. When playing against the Falcons, wide receivers have outscored running backs by a massive 22.1 PPR points, which is the second-largest gap in the league. Touchdowns aren't even required against them, as they've allowed a massive 9.54 yards per target to wide receivers. Even better is that they've allowed a massive 14.64 yards per reception, which is the most in the league. Ruggs has a ridiculously-high 19.5 air yards per target, so maybe he connects with Carr deep down the field? That's what we have to hope for considering he's go what seems like a four-target ceiling. For what it's worth, no receiver who's played the Falcons and seen fewer than five targets has finished as a top-50 option. If you're playing Ruggs, you're doing it because you know how great the matchup is and you're willing to take the risk. You're going to need a major offensive philosophy change for that upside to happen. He's just a boom-or-bust WR5.

Henry Ruggs III receives two touches in Week 11 defeat

Henry Ruggs III caught one pass for five yards and rushed once for a gain of 12 in the Raiders' Week 11 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Ruggs has yet to top five targets in a game this season. He certainly helps "stretch the field" for Las Vegas, but it isn't translating to fantasy success. Ruggs is a WR4 for a good matchup against the Falcons in Week 12.
