Las Vegas Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (ankle, foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 23, and has been ruled out for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Nelson Agholor and Hunter Renfrow should both see a few more targets with Edwards out of the lineup. They are facing a tough Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders SS Johnathan Abram will not play in Week 7 because there isn't enough time for him to be cleared from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Huddle Up: Jeff Heath is likely to start and could be a one-week filler if you have a bye to cover in IDP leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Jason Witten ended up with two receptions for six yards on his two targets in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: As long as Darren Waller is healthy, Witten's fantasy appeal is rather minimal. The Raiders are off in Week 6 before facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow posted a 42-yard grab on his only target in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Renfrow's fantasy owners can't be thrilled with just one target, but at least it was a big gainer. He'll be off in Week 6 before returning in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller registered five grabs for 48 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Waller's yardage total was so-so again, but he scored for the first time since Week 2 against New Orleans. He has at least five grabs in four of his five outings, and remains a top fantasy tight end in most formats. Waller is off in Week 6, however, so fantasy owners will need to make other plans.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III reeled in two receptions for 118 yards, including a 72-yard touchdown, in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs on three targets.
Huddle Up: Ruggs was back after a two-game absence and he made his presence felt with the long score. Unfortunately for fantasy owners he will be off again in Week 6 due to a bye.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Jalen Richard ran once for four yards and he added four catches for 26 yards on five targets in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Richard can gather big chunks of yardage when he gets touches, but as long as Josh Jacobs and Devontae Booker remain healthy, Richard's workload will be limited. The Raiders are off in Week 6.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Devontae Booker ran seven times for 62 yards in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added one reception for five yards on his only target.
Huddle Up: Booker's touch total was his most of the season, eclipsing the seven he had in Week 1. Still, that's not enough of a workload for fantasy owners outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs ran 23 times for 77 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added two catches for eight yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: It was the first multi-touchdown game for Jacobs since Week 1. He now has 377 rushing yards and 108 receiving yards across five games while posting five rushing touchdowns in five games. Fantasy owners will have to find alternate options with the Raiders off in Week 6.

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 22-of-31 passes for 347 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Carr has back-to-back 300-yard games and he has thrown for two or more touchdowns in four straight games. He is back into that low-end QB1 territory in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. He'll look to keep it cooking in Week 7 against the Buccaneers after the bye.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (hamstring, knee) is officially active for the Week 5 game.
Huddle Up: Ruggs will rejoin the starting lineup and likely will see a number of targets in what could be a high-scoring game. He can be a flex option in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 9, but is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Waller likely will be the main option in the passing game even with Henry Ruggs III expected back in the lineup. Waller should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Jacobs is a big part of the Raiders offense and will see plenty of touches against the Kansas City Chiefs. He should be at least a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (hamstring, knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 9, but is listed as questionable for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Ruggs appears to have a very good chance to play this week, but fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense and could be kept on the bench if players have better options available.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (hamstring, knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Ruggs is on track to play in the Week 5 game and should see a solid amount of targets in the passing game. He will be facing a tough Kansas City Chiefs defense but can still be a flex option in leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Jacobs is coming off a disappointing Week 4 performance but has been a reliable fantasy option since entering the league. He can be a No. 1 or No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 8.
Huddle Up: Waller should be able to play this week, but fantasy players should check on his status later in the week. He is one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be a starting option in fantasy leagues if he plays.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Waller has played at least 89 percent of the offensive snaps in each game this season. There's little need to worry for the Raiders' No. 1 option in the passing and he'll be a top-tier TE1 this week.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (knee, hamstring) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: The limited session is a promising sign for Ruggs after he sat out Weeks 3 and 4 due to injury. He'll need to be started in fantasy lineups if active in what will be a pass-heavy game for the Raiders.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (hip) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Jacobs should suit up in Week 5 with little need for worry. He'll be an RB1 despite the pass-heavy matchup for the Raiders.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (foot, ankle) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Edwards' role had grown each of the first three weeks of the season but he's trending toward missing a second straight game. He needs to be stashed in only very deep leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow caught five passes for 57 yards in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills. Renfrow was targeted eight times.
Huddle Up: Between them, Renfrow and Darren Waller were targeted on 20 of Derek Carr's 44 pass attempts. The second-year pro's ability to work underneath and in traffic plays to what Carr wants to do with the football. It's not the most thrilling approach, but Renfrow appears to have carved out a role that gives him some WR4/flex appeal.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller caught nine passes (on 12 targets) for 88 yards against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Oct. 4.
Huddle Up: Waller shook off an invisible Week 3 performance when Bill Belichick decided he was the player he was taking out of the gameplan to lead the team in receptions and receiving yards. With the receiving corps beset by injuries, Waller is Derek Carr's top target and a solid TE1 selection.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs had 15 carries for 48 yards against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, Oct. 4. He also posted three receptions for 25 yards.
Huddle Up: After accounting for 139 total yards and 3 TDs in Week 1, Jacobs' production has slipped each week, dropping to 105 yards in Week 3, 83 yards in Week 4 and 73 on Sunday. He also hasn't visited the end zone since the opener. He's the focal point of the running game, but he's more of a volume producer right now, so his best days are likely to come when Las Vegas works from in front. Consider Jacobs an RB2 in KC next week.

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 32 of his 44 passing attempts for 311 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 4 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Carr added 20 yards rushing.
Huddle Up: Carr was alright against Buffalo on Sunday, generally taking care of the football (he did lose a fumble) and moving the chains, but it wasn't enough. There's just no element of danger with Carr or the Raiders offense and no one defenses fear other than Darren Waller. Carr is a fine QB2 that can hold down the fort in a bye or short-term injury situation, but there's little upside to be found.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (hamstring, knee) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: Henry Renfrow and Nelson Agholor likely will be the main receivers for the Raiders this week because of the injuries at the position. Renfrow likely has more fantasy value at this point and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (hamstring, knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and is listed as doubtful for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Nelson Agholor and Hunter Renfrow should receive most of the playing time among the receivers with Ruggs unlikely to play. Both players could be flex options in deeper leagues.
