Ruggs hasn't been able to do much in this offense recently, which bumps him down my rankings this week. He always has the potential to break off a huge play, but he's nothing more than a FLEX play due to his wide range of outcomes. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The Raiders No. 1 receiver, who they selected at No. 12 overall, over Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb, has 14 targets through four games. He's totaled exactly three targets in each of the last three games he's played, which is not nearly enough to be considered a reliable fantasy option. Does this matchup help matters? Well, receivers have totaled 114 receptions against the Browns, which is the second-highest number in the league through seven weeks. That adds up to a massive 16.3 receptions per game. There are teams who don't allow that many targets per game to opposing receivers. They have allowed 327.2 PPR points to receivers, which is second to only the Seahawks. That's allowed a ridiculous 13 wide receivers to finish with 12.3 or more PPR points against them, which is second to... the Seahawks. That's 13 receivers who've been WR3s at minimum through seven games, which is essentially two per game. Five of those receivers saw six or less targets, too, so it doesn't even require tons of volume. Ruggs moves all over the formation but should see the most of Denzel Ward, who's struggled to this point, allowing four touchdowns in his coverage this year. Ruggs is far from a sure thing, but as a boom-or-bust WR4 who could pay off in a big way? Yeah.
