New England Patriots WR Nelson Agholor's average depth of target was 15.5 yards as a member of the Las Vegas Raiders in 2020 - the deepest average for any player with at least 70 targets last season.
Huddle Up: The expectation is that Agholor will stretch the field in the same way for Cam Newton and Mac Jones that he did for Derek Carr. Whether either quarterback will establish the same kind of chemistry he did with Carr is another story. Considering how much New England paid him in free agency ($22 million over two years, including a $10 million signing bonus), he is expected to take over for Jakobi Meyers as the top option at receiver. Given the Patriots' run-heavy ways and questions at quarterback, Agholor's fantasy upside might be limited to WR4 territory.

Las Vegas Raiders impending free-agent WR Nelson Agholor plans to sign a two-year contract with the New England Patriots worth $26 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Agholor is coming off a terrific 2020 season and should have a significant role in the passing game for the Patriots next season. He could be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on the team's quarterback.

Las Vegas Raiders impending free-agent WR Nelson Agholor is a player the Raiders would like to re-sign this offseason, according to general manager Mike Mayock.
Huddle Up: Agholor is coming off one of the best seasons in his career with 896 yards and eight touchdowns in 2020. He will receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market and has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver depending on his situation.

Las Vegas Raiders impending free-agent WR Nelson Agholor may be too expensive for the Raiders to re-sign this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Paul Gutierrez.
Huddle Up: Agholor is coming off a career season and probably will receive interest from multiple teams. He should have fantasy value no matter where he signs but probably will not be a weekly starting option in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Nelson Agholor caught five of his six targets for 155 yards and a touchdown in a 26-25 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.
Huddle Up: It was the second time in the last three games that Agholor has had at least 100 yards and a touchdown, and after Darren Waller, Agholor has become the most important part of the Las Vegas passing attack.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Nelson Agholor hauled in four balls for 49 yards in Week 15 against the Los Angeles Chargers. He was targeted eight times.
Huddle Up: Agholor, who appeared to dislocate his finger during the game, saw more targets than the rest of Las Vegas' receivers combined. Granted, Henry Ruggs was unavailable and Hunter Renfrow departed with a concussion, but the Raiders got little from Zay Jones and nothing from Bryan Edwards. Agholor has been the team's steadiest producer on the outside this season, though even that only gives him flex value in most leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 16, and doesn't carry an injury designation into the Week 15 game against the Los Angeles Chargers Thursday, Dec. 17.
Huddle Up: Agholor hit 100 receiving yards for the second time this year and scored his seventh touchdown of the season in Week 14. He has become a reliable option and should be viewed as a low-end WR2 in what should be a high-scoring game against the Chargers on Thursday Night Football.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) fully participated in practice Monday, Dec. 14. The Raiders did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Agholor picked up his second 100-yard game of the season last week and has been targeted at least nine times in three of the last four games. He should have some success against the Los Angeles Chargers this week and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Nelson Agholor caught five of his nine targets for 100 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Fantasy football is funny sometimes. Agholor posted lines of 5-54-0 and 4-38-0 in what should have been great matchups against the Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets over the previous two weeks only to put up a solid WR1 total in one of the stingier fantasy matchups for receivers. The former Philadelphia Eagle has been clearly emerged as Derek Carr's favorite wide receiver over the last couple of months, although he is still a bit too inconsistent to be considered an every-week start. He should be considered a low-end WR3 in Week 15 versus the Los Angeles Chargers.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Agholor has been a bigger part of the passing game during the second half of the season with 26 targets over the last three games. He will be facing a solid Indianapolis Colts defense this week but can still be at least a flex option in some leagues.
