Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Renfrow left the Week 15 game against the Los Angeles Chargers after just 13 snaps but the extended rest period seems to have him on track to return for Saturday's game against the Miami Dolphins. He can be a low-ceiling FLEX option in PPR formats.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow caught four passes for 47 yards against the New York Jets in Week 13. He was targeted six times during the game.
Huddle Up: Renfrow has been targeted 15 times over the last two weeks but has posted at least 50 yards in two of his last eight games. He should see a similar workload next week, but fantasy players likely will be able to find better options for their lineups.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow game highs with seven receptions, 73 yards and nine targets in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: The Raiders were on the short end of a blowout loss, so they passed more than usual. The stats weren't good for most, but Renfrow and his fantasy owners benefited. He should be a decent WR4 or flex play in PPR leagues of 12 or more teams in Week 13 against the Jets, with lesser appeal in standard formats.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow registered four receptions for 26 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Cleveland Browns on four targets.
Huddle Up: Renfrow's score was the only touchdown in the 16-6 road victory, a game played in windy conditions with occasional snow. The Raiders hit the road for Week 9 against the Los Angeles Chargers, but Renfrow remains useful only as a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

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 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 WR Hunter Renfrow led his team with six receptions, 84 yards and nine targets in Week 3 against the New England Patriots while also scoring a touchdown.
Huddle Up: The Raiders lost Bryan Edwards during the game, so that gave Renfrow even more responsibilities. He looks like he could be a solid PPR option in leagues of 12 or more tams if he can continue to see this volume of targets. He and the Raiders will get a good test in Week 4 against the visiting Buffalo Bills.

Adding more context to a previous report, Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III is expected to begin his pro career as the primary slot receiver ahead of Hunter Renfrow, according to comments made by offensive coordinator Greg Olson.
'We'll start with Ruggs III in the slot and do some things with Ruggs. But those guys (Ruggs and Bryan Edwards) are very multiple in what they can do and that's the goal is to be able to move all of them around to different spots; the one, two or three position at the wide receiver,' Olson said recently.
Huddle Up: The move makes some sense in that Ruggs occasionally struggled against press coverage in the SEC, making it difficult to show off his speed and run-after-catch ability versus top-flight corners. Working out of the slot should help him in that regard. On the other hand, Renfrow was clearly the Raiders' top wideout at the end of last season, but he lacks the size and athleticism to thrive on the perimeter consistently - meaning he may not be one of the team's top three receivers. Assuming Ruggs is the primary slot in 2020, he could easily return WR3 value in fantasy, while Renfrow may struggle to be a WR5.
