He's leading all wide receivers in efficiency, averaging 2.74 PPR points per target. Naturally, the Raiders have targeted him just 38 times on the year. The difference between him and Ruggs is that he's actually had two games with good volume, including last week when he saw nine targets against the Chiefs. Now going into a matchup with the Falcons, it could be another big one. They've seen a remarkable 22.1 wide receiver targets per game, which is much more than the 13.0 per game the Raiders are averaging. The Falcons have also allowed 210.8 yards per game to wide receviers alone, which ranks as the second-most in the league. There have already been 17 wide receivers who've posted 11.2 or more PPR points against them this year, which is the average number it took to finish as a top-36 wide receiver last year. Seeing the 29.3-point team implied total, you're hoping Agholor gets a piece of that action in this great matchup. He should be considered a WR4 with upside this week, though you're likely sacrificing a floor to put him in lineups.

Nelson Agholor scores fifth touchdown in last seven games on Sunday night

Nelson Agholor caught 6-of-9 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in a 35-31 loss to the Chiefs in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact

Agholor played on over 70% of the snaps Sunday night compared to Bryan Edwards’ 15% of snaps and Henry Ruggs’ 53% of snaps. It’s clear Jon Gruden and the Raiders coaching staff trusts Agholor as a legit starting wide receiver. Feel free to fire him up as a WR3 in Week 12 against a beatable Falcons secondary.
