    Raiders' Henry Ruggs: Catches all four targets Sunday

    Ruggs caught four passes on as many targets for 24 yards and added a seven-yard rush in Sunday's 33-22 win over the Eagles.Ruggs' streak of six consecutive games with at least one reception of 20-plus yards came to an end Sunday, as he was outproduced by fellow receivers Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards on a day that quarterback Derek Carr managed to complete 31 of 34 pass attempts. Carr also directed six targets at tight end Foster Moreau, who capitalized with six catches for 60 yards and a touchdown as he filled in for an injured Darren Waller (ankle). Heading into the Las Vegas Raiders' Week 8 bye, Ruggs has hauled in 24 passes for 469 yards and two scores on 36 targets through seven games.

    Raiders' Henry Ruggs: Practices fully Thursday

    Ruggs (knee) practiced fully Thursday.As did Bryan Edwards (hamstring), which sets the stage for the Las Vegas Raiders to head into Sunday's game against the Eagles with their top two wideouts available for Week 7 action. Ruggs, who caught three of his four targets for 97 yards and a touchdown in last week's win over the Broncos, will take aim this weekend at a Philadelphia defense that has allowed an average of 211.8 passing yards (fifth fewest in the league) and 12 TDs via the air through six contests.

    Raiders' Henry Ruggs: Burns Denver deep

    Ruggs caught three receptions on four targets for 97 yards and one touchdown against Denver on Sunday.The four targets are a meager total, but Ruggs' 48-yard touchdown in the first quarter put the Broncos at a disadvantage they never recovered from, and it's possible that the Las Vegas Raiders would have gone to Ruggs more if the game had been closer. Derek Carr attempted a season-low 27 passes, and that likely had a limiting effect on Ruggs' target count. While he may never be a high-volume receiver -- his season high in targets is just seven through six games -- Ruggs has been highly efficient in each 2021 game to this point. He's averaging a 40-yard reception every other game, and if his target volume does somehow rise in upcoming weeks, he could tap into another level. In the meantime, though, the crowded pass-catcher rotation of Darren Waller, Bryan Edwards and Hunter Renfrow poses formidable target competition to Ruggs. He faces the Eagles at home in Week 7.

    Raiders' Henry Ruggs: Three catches in loss

    Ruggs brought in all three targets for 51 yards in the Las Vegas Raiders' 20-9 loss to the Bears on Sunday.On a lackluster day for the Raiders' passing attack, Ruggs posted his second consecutive three-catch tally. The speedster's receiving yardage total was second on the afternoon to that of Hunter Renfrow's, although it also marked the third straight time Ruggs' production in that category declined over that of the prior game. The second-year pro will look to reverse that unfavorable trend in a Week 6 road battle against the Broncos.

    Ruggs caught three of six targets for 51 yards in Monday night's 28-14 loss to the Chargers.Ruggs was coming off consecutive games with at least 75 yards, and although he couldn't continue that streak, the speedster was once again featured vertically. Along with drawing a deep pass-interference call early, Ruggs hauled in a 51-yard bomb during the fourth quarter and was targeted on another downfield shot later. Overall, he led the Las Vegas Raiders in receiving yards and showed further glimpses of his explosive upside to complement Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow in the starting lineup.
