2020 Fantasy Outlook
An elite athlete, Ruggs is longer on physical skills than college production. Not that his 18 touchdowns over 26 games are anything to sneeze at, but his numbers pale in comparison to those of fellow top prospects Jerry Jeudy (his Alabama teammate) and CeeDee Lamb. Where Ruggs has them beat, however, is in pure speed and explosiveness. He ran a blistering 4.27 40 at the combine, and his 42-inch vertical and 131-inch broad jump were similarly off the charts. At 5-11, 188, Ruggs is small, though slightly larger than other NFL speedsters like Tyreek Hill and DeSean Jackson. The question is what kind of role he'll have at the NFL level. There's no doubt he'll slot in as the Raiders' key field stretcher and big-play threat - after all, he was the first receiver chosen at pick 12. But there's a big difference between getting Jackson's 90-100 targets per year and Hill's 135-140, and Ruggs has competition from tight end Darren Waller, slot man Hunter Renfrow, wideout Tyrell Williams and fellow rookie Bryan Edwards.

Concussion
January 19, 2021
Ruggs (concussion) finished his rookie season with 26 catches for 452 yards and four touchdowns on 43 targets, starting 12 of his 13 games.
ANALYSIS
Apart from the Week 17 contest in which he suffered a concussion, Ruggs played at least 54 percent of offensive snaps in every appearance. He burnt the Chiefs for 118 yards and a touchdown in his third NFL game, but then had just 79 receiving yards total over the next five contests. The first-round pick did make one of the most memorable plays of the 2020 campaign, torching the Jets in Week 13 for a go-ahead, 46-yard TD with five seconds remaining. Ruggs otherwise went unnoticed for much of the year, with TE Darren Waller being the Raiders' volume hog and WR Nelson Agholor emerging as the big-play threat. Ruggs didn't live up to his billing as the first wideout drafted in a deep class for the position, but he probably showed enough potential to enter 2021 training camp with a starting job. The spot across from him is the big question mark, with Agholor scheduled for free agency and Tyrell Williams (shoulder) a likely cap casualty. Fellow 2020 draft pick Bryan Edwards could also enter the mix for perimeter snaps, despite catching only 11 passes as a rookie.
