2021 Fantasy Outlook
The first WR taken in last year’s draft (12th overall), Ruggs never had a consistent role in the Raiders offense. At 6-0, 190, and with elite speed (4.27 40) and athleticism (42-inch vertical, 131-inch broad jump), Ruggs’ physical specs are not in doubt. And he averaged 17.4 YPC and 10.5 YPT, with four catches of 40-plus on only 43 targets, i.e., his per-play output was what you’d expect from a game-breaking downfield receiver. But Derek Carr simply did not target Ruggs often — he never had more than five in any game, and journeyman Nelson Agholor surprisingly served as the team’s No. 1 outside receiver. Agholor is gone, but Vegas brought in fellow field-stretcher John Brown, who is likely to compete with Ruggs for downfield targets. It’s too early to say Ruggs is a bust, but he’ll have to compete for snaps with Brown, last year’s third-rounder Bryan Edwards, newly signed Willie Snead and slot man Hunter Renfrow. Moreover, tight end Darren Waller is Carr’s go-to guy. Read Past Outlooks

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.
