    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: Limited session Wednesday

    Ruggs was limited at practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.In addition to Ruggs, fellow wideout Bryan Edwards (hamstring) was a limited participant in the Las Vegas Raiders' first Week 7 session. During the Raiders' Week 6 win over the Broncos, Ruggs caught three of his four targets for 97 yards and a touchdown while logging a 66-percent offensive snap share.

    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.

    Raiders' Henry Ruggs: Featured deep again

    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.

The Alabama product has seen seven targets in back-to-back games, and his 237 total receiving yards rank 15th in the NFL through Week 3.

    Raiders' Henry Ruggs: Low output but good usage Week 1

    Ruggs hauled in two of five targets for 46 yards Monday in the Las Vegas Raiders' 33-27 overtime win over the Ravens.Though Ruggs turned in one of the leaner stat lines among Las Vegas pass catchers, his Week 1 usage was solid. Per Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee, Ruggs played 56 of the Raiders' 86 offensive snaps, ranking third among skill-position players behind only tight end Darren Waller (81) and Bryan Edwards (57). Ruggs did the bulk of his damage on a 37-yard strike from Derek Carr late in the fourth quarter, which helped set up Waller's game-tying 10-yard touchdown reception.

    Raiders' Henry Ruggs: Listed as starter opposite Edwards

    Ruggs is listed as a starting wideout opposite fellow second-year player Bryan Edwards on the Las Vegas Raiders' posted depth chart.Also in the mix are top slot man Hunter Renfrow as well as Zay Jones and Willie Snead. With the Raiders having parted ways with veteran speedster John Brown last month, Ruggs would appear to have every opportunity to emerge as the team's No. 1 wide receiver in tandem with Edwards. A 2021 fantasy breakout thus appears plausible for the No. 12 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft after he logged a modest 26-452-2 stat line through 13 games as a rookie.
