  Raiders | Las Vegas' Friday practice report    Fri Sep 18, 04:49 PM

Las Vegas Raiders OT Trent Brown (calf), LB Nick Kwiatkoski (pectoral), WR Henry Ruggs III (knee), OT Sam Young (groin) and S Lamarcus Joyner (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 18. OG Richie Incognito (Achilles) and OG John Simpson (shoulder) were limited. CB Damon Arnette (wrist, thumb), RB Josh Jacobs (ankle) and DE Arden Key (knee) practiced in full. C Rodney Hudson (non-injury) and TE Jason Witten (non-injury) were not given a practice designation.

Footballguys view: Ruggs returned to the game after hurting his knee last week but might not be ready to go this week. Nelson Agholor would probably slide into the starting lineup if Ruggs can't go.

  Raiders | Henry Ruggs does not practice    Thu Sep 17, 06:11 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Watch for Ruggs on Saturday. The Raiders play on Monday night against the Saints, so Saturday's practice is like Friday's practice for everyone else that plays on Sunday. That means Thursday's practice is really like Wednesdays which means we're not too concerned by Ruggs' absence. Confused yet? LOL. Just make sure he's at least limited on Saturday. Ruggs is a deep flex option if he plays in Week 2. He looked good before going down with this injury in Week 1.

  Raiders | More to come for Henry Ruggs III?    Tue Sep 15, 11:54 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III (knee) recorded all 66 of his offensive yards prior to tweaking his knee at the end of first half against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

Footballguys view: We'll see what Ruggs can do when healthy for a full game. He's got speed, speed and more speed to his game. Ruggs can get by defenders in the blink of an eye and is a threat to score from anywhere on the field.

  Raiders | Darren Waller leads team with six catches    Sun Sep 13, 05:44 PM

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller hauled in a team-high six reception for 45 yards in Week 1 against the Carolina Panthers and he also led the team with eight targets.

Footballguys view: Waller was targeted early in the game, but since he didn't account for any of the scores and Derek Carr spread the ball around, he didn't have an outstanding fantasy game. He'll still be a low TE1 against the Saints next week.

  Raiders | Henry Ruggs III debuts with three grabs    Sun Sep 13, 05:31 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III led the team with 55 receiving yards on three catches in Week 1 against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted five times, and he also added two rushes for 11 yards.

Footballguys view: Ruggs briefly left the game with a leg injury but returned. He had one deep catch and Derek Carr was effective enough to keep Ruggs in the conversation when it's time to set your lineup, although next week against the Saints will be more of a challenge for the Raiders offense.

  Raiders | Devontae Booker opens with seven touches    Sun Sep 13, 05:29 PM

  Raiders | Josh Jacobs racks up three rushing TDs    Sun Sep 13, 05:25 PM

Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs carried 25 times for 93 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 1 road win against the Carolina Panthers. He also added four receptions for 46 yards on six targets.

Footballguys view: Jacobs was more involved in the passing game as promised, and all three of his scores were easy, which bodes well for the Buccaneers goal line running game next week. Jacobs faces a much tougher Saints defense next week, but his fantasy teams could not be happier.
