Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (ankle) has been added to the Week 7 game and is listed as questionable because of an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Waller may be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He is one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be a starting option in all leagues if active.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee/ankle) on Saturday, Oct. 23, was downgraded to questionable for the team's Week 7 game Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles with knee and ankle injuries.
Huddle Up: Waller missed Wednesday's practice -- described as rest day -- and then was listed as limited in Friday's practice, so the Saturday downgrade is mildly surprising and concerning. Waller's fantasy GMs now will have to check in on his status before the game Sunday afternoon.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Ruggs finished with 97 yards and one touchdown in the last week and has posted at least 75 yards in three games in 2021. He can be considered a low-end No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Edwards has posted at least 60 yards in three of the six games this season but has been held to five receptions over the last three games. Fantasy players probably have better options available and can keep Edwards on the bench.

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.
Huddle Up: Carr is coming off a 341-yard performance last week and has four 300-yard games this season. He has thrown 10 touchdowns in six games and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback or bye week replacement in deeper leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Waller has cooled off a bit since the start of the season but is still averaging six catches a game. He should see plenty of targets against the Philadelphia Eagles and can be a No. 1 tight end in all leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 21.

Huddle Up: Carr has thrown two touchdowns in five of the six games this season and has three 300-yard games as well as a 400-yard game. He has become a No. 1 fantasy quarterback this season and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Edwards has caught three or fewer passes in each of the last five games but has posted at least 65 yards in two of those games. Fantasy players in most leagues likely have better options available and can keep Edwards on the bench.

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr (finger) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Carr has thrown for at least 300 yards in four games this season and ranks second in the NFL with 1,946 yards. He should have success against the Philadelphia Eagles and can be a No. 1 quarterback in most leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Ruggs ranks 15th in the NFL with 445 yards but has caught at least four passes in two of the six games in 2021. His big-play ability makes him a valuable fantasy option, and he can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Edwards has been on a bit of a cold streak recently but did post 67 yards last week. He has not caught more than four passes in any game this season and probably can be benched in most fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 20.
Huddle Up: Waller should return to practice in the next day or two and be available for the Week 7 game. He has posted at least 50 yards in five of the six games this season and can be a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow had three receptions for 36 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 6.
Huddle Up: After catching five or six passes in each of his first five games this season, Renfrow managed just three catches in Denver. Consider it a blip as he has earned a steady spot in Las Vegas' receiving hierarchy and is viable flex play in point-per-reception formats.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III caught three passes for 97 yards and a touchdown against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Oct. 17. He was targeted four times.
Huddle Up: At this point you could make a case that Ruggs is on the short list of the most dangerous downfield receivers in the NFL. What he isn't, however, is a volume target, catching three or fewer passes four times this year and never more than five in a game. So while Ruggs is playable as a WR3, he's always going to carry that high-ceiling/low-floor designation.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller caught all five of his targeted passes for 59 yards against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Oct. 17.
Huddle Up: Ever since a monstrous Week 1 (10-105-1 on 19 targets), Waller has fallen back to the pack when it comes to Carr's passing, logging between five and eight targets in each of the last five games. His yardage has been decent, but he has just one TD in that stretch. He's still a must-start at a weak fantasy position, but for anyone that drafted him thinking he'd be 1a/1b with Travis Kelce it has been a disappointment.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Kenyan Drake had four carries for 34 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos. He also caught two passes for 39 yards and a score.
Huddle Up: Usage wise, Drake still isn't getting a lot of work, totaling just six touches in Week 6. He made them count, though, so perhaps that will convince the Raiders to give the offseason signing some more work after he managed just four touches combined in the last two games. If Drake was dropped you can consider scooping him up, at least in larger leagues, just in case this heralds a bigger presence moving ahead.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs carried the ball 16 times for 53 yards and a touchdown against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Oct. 17. He also had one reception for 29 yards.
Huddle Up: Jacobs is a grinder. Full stop. He has averaged less than 3.5 yards per carry in each of his four games this season and doesn't have a run of more than 15. On Sunday, his longest gain as a runner in 16 carries was six yards. He has scored in three of his four games, though, which is allowing him to keep borderline RB2/RB3 appeal. We'll see if he can be a bit more explosive against an Eagles defense that ranks in the NFL's bottom five in rushing yardage allowed this year.

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr completed 18 of 27 passes for 341 yards and two touchdowns in a Week 6 win over the Denver Broncos.
Huddle Up: After a couple of shaky outings against the Chargers and Bears, Carr looked much more like the version we saw to close 2020 and open 2021 as he pushed the ball downfield, averaging a season-best 12.6 yards per attempt. It should quiet questions about the team's ability to focus in the aftermath of the Jon Gruden resignation, and the team has a nice matchup in Week 7 against an Eagles defense that often looked barely competitive against the Buccaneers this past Thursday. Carr could carry some low-end QB1 appeal next Sunday.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 15, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Ruggs appears to be dealing with a minor injury and should be on the field for the Week 6 game. He has posted at least 50 yards in each of the last four games and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (illness) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 15, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.
Huddle Up: Jacobs is dealing with an illness but should be able to handle his normal workload against the Denver Broncos. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (illness) was sidelined for a second straight practice Friday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: NFL players typically played through "illness" designations pre-COVID, but it is unclear what the Raiders' top back is dealing with this week. While there is no indication Jacobs is dealing with COVID-19, consecutive missed practices on Thursday and Friday means fantasy managers will likely need to check back for updates this weekend to be sure he is a go against the Denver Broncos. If he can't, Peyton Barber would be in the low-end RB2 conversation despite the difficult matchup.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 14.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Huddle Up: It seems like Waller was receiving a day off and that he should return to practice in the next day or two. He has been targeted at least seven times in every game this season but has been held under 55 yards in each of the last three games. He will continue to see plenty of targets in the passing game and should be a No. 1 tight end.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs rushed 36 times for 201 yards and four touchdowns in two games against the Denver Broncos last season.
Huddle Up: Jacobs hasn't had more than 19 touches in a game this season, and his health has been a question mark. He has three scores in 38 rushes this season and makes the most of his limited looks. He's an RB1 against Denver in Week 6.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Josh Jacobs rushed 15 times for 48 yards and a touchdown and caught four of his five targets for 19 yards in a 20-9 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Jacobs saw a season high in carries, but he still hasn't reached 50 rushing yards in a game. Even as the lead back for the Raiders, he is no more than a flex option

Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr (neck) completed 22 of his 35 passes for 206 yards and an interception in a 20-9 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 5, and head coach Jon Gruden said Carr was dealing with pain in his neck following the game.
Huddle Up: After a scorching start, Carr has struggled in back-to-back weeks. The neck injury seems minor, but fantasy owners should be concerned that Carr appears to be regressing to his typical QB2 form.
