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/hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
ANALYSIS
After being added to the Raiders' Week 3 injury report Thursday following a limited showing at practice, Ruggs wasn't able to take the field Friday and won't be available this weekend. With Ruggs out, Zay Jones and Nelson Agholor are candidates for added snaps Sunday behind Bryan Edwards and Hunter Renfrow.
