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.

Ruggs (knee) secured two of three targets for 118 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 40-32 win over the Chiefs on Sunday. He also returned one kickoff for nine yards.
ANALYSIS
Making his first appearance since Week 2, Ruggs put his stamp on the game with a 72-yard touchdown grab with 2:39 remaining in the first half. The rookie speedster also recorded a 46-yard grab on the afternoon and provided the Raiders with a downfield dimension they'd been missing in his absence. While he only saw three targets, Ruggs' final line is a testament to what he can do with even minimal opportunity. Ruggs now will utilize the bye week to get even healthier ahead of a Week 7 home matchup against the Buccaneers.
