  Raiders | Henry Ruggs III bulked up in offseason    Wed Jul 28, 01:57 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III told reporters Wednesday, July 28, that he gained about 13 pounds this offseason in an effort to become a more physical player in the passing and running game.

Footballguys view: Ruggs has tons of speed to his game, but adding strength will help him beat press coverage. His added strength is unlikely to take away any of his trademark speed. After a rookie season that saw him catch only 26 passes, Ruggs is in for a much larger workload in 2021. Projecting him for 50-plus catches is not outlandish.

Las Vegas Raiders third-round draft choice S Divine Deablo agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Raiders Friday, July 23. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Deablo is safety that the Raiders may try to turn into a weakside linebacker the same way they did with Clemson's Tanner Muse last year. Deablo has some deep sleeper value in IDP leagues and could end up being a long-term starter.

  Raiders | Marc Badain steps down    Mon Jul 19, 07:38 PM

Footballguys view: This announcement was a bit abrupt, but Badain said that the finishing the move into a new city and stadium was his moment to focus on his family and new pursuits, so we won't speculate as to whether there were any other reasons this long relationship is over.

  Raiders | Kenyan Drake expecting big role    Fri Jul 9, 02:44 PM

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake said Friday, July 9, that he expects to have a sizable role alongside lead back Josh Jacobs in the Raiders' offense. 'I'm definitely excited to see how our roles continue to develop with obviously Josh being the main guy to do what he needs to do because I have much respect and love for him and his game and what coach (Jon) Gruden has planned for us in that specific capacity,' Drake told SiriusXM NFL Radio. 'But I feel like I might have a big role in this offense. With them being a top-10 offense last year, the sky is the limit for us. I'm ready to see us take it to the next level.'

Footballguys view: Another day, another positive story about Drake. Jacobs is the primary ball-carrier for the Raiders, but Drake might see work as a runner and receiver used all over the formation. There's enough intrigue there to watch his usage in the preseason and keep an eye on those reports from training camp. Drake is an RB3 with plenty of flex appeal in PPR formats.

  Raiders | Henry Ruggs may see more slant routes    Thu Jul 8, 05:03 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III only caught two passes while running a slant route last season but may see more of those routes in 2021 because of his plamaking ability, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Paul Gutierrez.

Footballguys view: Ruggs has the speed to take the top off the defense, but that doesn't mean just a bunch of "9" (go) routes. Using him on slants takes advantage of his speed and allows him to run away from the defense. Defenders can't patrol the middle of the field like they used to, and it would be difficult to get a bead on Ruggs if led properly by his quarterback. All offseason there have been positive reports about Ruggs being a "breakout" player in 2021. We like him as a WR4/WR5 with upside for your fantasy team this season.

  Raiders | Kenyan Drake a receiving threat    Thu Jul 8, 01:37 PM

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake should be featured more in the passing game than he was with the Arizona Cardinals, and could often line up as the X or Y receiver, in the opinion of NFL analyst Gil Brandt.

Footballguys view: Josh Jacobs is the primary back for the Raiders and he will get a majority of the carries in 2021. Drake is working as a slot receiver in addition to how he likely will be featured as a receiver out of the backfield. Fantasy GMs consider Jacobs a mid-range RB2 while Drake is seen as a RB3/flex option in PPR formats and he's got a current ADP of RB37 (8.02).

  Raiders | RB Drake to Play Some WR Too    Tue Jul 6, 02:45 PM

Mike Clay, from ESPN, reports Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake expects to play a more versatile role including taking snaps at wide receiver.

Footballguys view: Jon Gruden has talked previously about using Drake all over the formation. Josh Jacobs is the lead back and will get plenty of work, but it sounds like Drake will have some things designed for him to get the ball in space. From a fantasy perspective, Drake could have some value in PPR formats as a flex player. He's currently going off the board at RB36 (8.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Raiders | Zay Jones feeling reinvigorated    Thu Jul 1, 12:20 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Zay Jones said recently that head coach Jon Gruden has reinvigorated his passion for football. 'It's a lot of fun (being coached by Gruden),' Jones said in an interview for the team's in-house TV show. 'I've said this to many people I've talked to, Gruden has kind of reignited that fire and that love, for me, with football again. Football's something that early on in my career, felt like a job a little bit. But Gruden has brought that passion that's just like, 'I enjoy playing this game again. I enjoy being out here.''

Footballguys view: Jones can be invigorated but he's still buried on the team's depth chart. Incredibly productive in college, Jones has not produced at a high level in the NFL. He'll compete for the no.5 spot on the Raiders depth chart with Willie Snead. The guys ahead of him; Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards, Hunter Renfrow and John Brown should stay plenty busy in 2021.

  Raiders | Henry Ruggs disappeared as rookie    Sun Jun 27, 08:22 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III topped 100 receiving yards in just one of the 13 games he started as a rookie. He finished with eight yards or fewer five times and never had more than three catches in a game.

Footballguys view: Ruggs was the first receiver selected in the 2020 NFL draft, a class of wide receivers that many claimed was the best in history. He's a speed demon but finding consistency within that offense proved to be a problem for Ruggs as a rookie. All offseason reports have been positive about Ruggs and the role he'll play in 2021. Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has publicly stated that Ruggs "looks better" and will have a larger role this season. That makes him an interesting boom-bust pick late in your fantasy drafts.

  Raiders | Darren Waller headed higher?    Thu Jun 24, 02:47 PM

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller should improve on his career-high 1,196 receiving yards he posted in 2020, according to beat reporter VicTafur of The Athletic.

Footballguys view: It's not outlandish to think Waller could continue taking his game to the next level. He has yet to peak in the NFL and is arguably the best tight end in the league. The converted wide receiver from Georgia Tech has worked diligently to improve his game as a tight end for years. The Raiders are benefactors of that hard work, and Waller may not level off. Fantasy GMs are taking him off the board at TE2 (2.11) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Raiders | TE Waller to Surpass 2020 Numbers?    Tue Jun 22, 04:53 PM

Vic Tafur, from the Athletic, reports that Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller could surpass the 1,196 yards receiving he had last season.

Footballguys view: Waller may be the best tight end in the league. That's high praise, but he's earned it as Waller has worked diligently to improve his game since coming into the pros with the Ravens as a wide receiver convert out of Georgia Tech. Fantasy GMs are quick to scoop Waller up, especially in TE-premium leagues. In 12-team PPR leagues, Waller has a current ADP of TE2 (2.11).

Footballguys view: Lee was once a first round draft pick of the Jets. He has been relegated to journeyman status. Bausby is also a journeyman, who spent last year with the Broncos and Cardinals, notching three starts. They'll vie for the last spot or two on the roster.

  Raiders | Henry Ruggs III to be more involved?    Wed Jun 16, 01:34 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III 'looks much better' than he did last season, and head coach Jon Gruden indicated Wednesday, June 16, that he will be more involved in the offense in 2021.

Footballguys view: Ruggs is a speed guy who can fly down the sideline but he can be much more than that. As a rookie in 2020, the first-round pick managed just 26 catches for 452 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games. Ruggs would disappear at times when he was on the field and needs to improve his consistency and build better trust with QB Derek Carr. Right now, Fantasy GMs are taking Ruggs off the board at WR47 (10.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Footballguys view: Teamer started six games for the Chargers back in 2019. He has a shot to win the final roster spot at safety. Williams is a basketball convert who hadn't played football since eighth grade. Apparently, the Raiders have seen enough to move on from him.
