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 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 WR Henry Ruggs III (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 15, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III posted three receptions for a team-high 60 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: The day was almost huge for Ruggs, who was wide-open on a long play in the fourth quarter, but Derek Carr just overthrew him. That might have gone for a touchdown which could have doubled his yardage. It didn't. Ruggs is close to being a fantasy asset in all leagues, as he has speed to burn. As it stands, he is a WR4 or flex option in PPR leagues, with lesser appeal in standard play. The Raiders host the Chicago Bears in Week 5.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III posted four catches for 78 yards on seven targets in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins and he also ran once for seven yards.
Huddle Up: The speedster has 191 receiving yards and a score across the past two games, showing his big-play ability. He is averaging 21.5 yards per catch so far this season, making him a decent roll of the dice as a WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues of 12 or more teams. The Raiders travel to meet the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4 on Monday.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III registered five receptions for a game-high 113 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Ruggs is a speedster with big-play ability, and that has been on display early this season. He is averaging 22.7 yards per catch on seven receptions. He is a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option with some upside heading into Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III posted two grabs for 46 yards on five targets in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Ruggs had catches for nine and 37 yards, all coming late in the game. Fantasy players would like to see a little more consistency before starting him on a regular basis. He is worth using as a WR4 or flex fantasy option only in deeper leagues. The Raiders travel to meet the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.
