The Raiders selected rookie receiver Hunter Renfrow in the fifth round of the NFL Draft from Clemson, and he's expected to be a reserve this year. Oakland has a crowded receiving corps with Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams, Ryan Grant and J.J. Nelson, and Renfrow will likely compete with Grant to be the slot receiver. He could win that job, which would increase his Fantasy value, but he's not worth drafting in most seasonal leagues. And in rookie-only drafts, Renfrow is only worth selecting with a late-round flier.
The Raiders selected Renfrow in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 149th overall. Adam Humphries opened up a world of opportunity for undersized, under-athletic Clemson slot wideouts with mediocre production, and Renfrow is the first beneficiary. Renfrow is a pure slot receiver at 5-foot-10, 184 pounds, and his 4.59-second 40 won't frighten anyone, but he has innate skill in the underneath game and showed an encouraging 6.8-second three-cone drill at the combine. The Raiders realistically only have Ryan Grant in Renfrow's way for slot snaps, so a rookie-year role can't be ruled out despite him posting just 2,133 yards and 15 touchdowns in four seasons at Clemson.
