The Raiders targeted wide receivers on just 43.4 percent of their pass attempts in 2020.
That was the lowest in the league, unsurprising to anyone who watched Darren Waller soak up seemingly 15-20 weekly looks. This offseason has seen the departures of Nelson Agholor and Tyrell Williams and additions of John Brown and Kenyan Drake. It would seem to be a vote of confidence in second-year pros Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards, though beat writer Vic Tafur cautions Brown "could easily be the leading receiver." Tafur does believe Ruggs and Edwards will get every opportunity to earn the starting jobs. Edwards' 2020 went sideways following early-season foot issues, while Ruggs' rookie campaign never really got off the ground. GM Mike Mayock said earlier this offseason that Ruggs "has got to get better." We know coach Jon Gruden won't hesitate to go away from his receiver corps if he believes the targets are better dealt elsewhere. Ruggs is currently on the outside looking in of WR3 value.
