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 adds on 13 pounds, plans to be more physical

Henry Ruggs III gained about 13 pounds this offseason. He made it a goal to get stronger in order to become a more physical player.

Fantasy Impact

Just last month, Jon Gruden claimed Ruggs looked much better than last season and wanted to get him more involved this season. After being the first WR taken in the 2020 draft over CeeDee Lamb, Jerry Jeudy, and Justin Jefferson, the young wideout faces criticism after catching just 26 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns on the season. Gaining 13 pounds to be more physical is something fantasy manager should be ecstatic to hear. A true post-hype sleeper, if the plan to get him the ball more comes to fruition he could win a lot of leagues.
