Raiders WR Jakobi Meyers has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Buffalo. We'll see if he can make it back for Week 3 after his big opener. Meyers' absence would seem to present opportunity for WR Hunter Renfrow, but Renfrow played exactly as little (13 snaps, nine routes) as WR Kristian Wilkerson in Week 1. So we're not looking to get the veteran slot man into fantasy lineups this week. Here's hoping you don't need any Raiders WR beyond Davante Adams, who could be in for a huge target share this week.

Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo "was up-and-down early in camp but has been impressive of late," ESPN's Paul Gutierrez writes. Garoppolo also looked good in his 2023 preseason debut on Saturday night, completing all four of his passes for 39 yards on a 68-yard TD drive. He's still not an exciting fantasy option, but the improved play is good news for Vegas pass-catchers.

The Raiders will be signing WR Jakobi Meyers to a three-year, $33 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The pact will reportedly include $21 million in guaranteed money. This fit seems somewhat odd. Meyers does reunite with HC Josh McDaniels, who served as New England's OC for three of Meyers' four seasons there. But the 26-year-old (until Nov. 9) wideout joins an offense that already sports WR Davante Adams, TE Darren Waller, and WR Hunter Renfrow with annual average salaries over $10 million. Meyers also ran 64.5% of his routes with the Patriots from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus. That's also Renfrow's primary position (69.7% of career routes; 86% in 2022). We're assuming Meyers will be the second wideout (with Adams) in two-WR alignments, which will keep Renfrow's ceiling down. Meyers likely could have found more target share available elsewhere. It is, at least, a solid corps of receivers for new Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo. That said, we're not excited for the fantasy outlook on the QB, Meyers, or Renfrow.

Raiders QB Derek Carr went just 16 of 30 passing for 174 yards in Saturday night's loss to the Steelers. He threw just 1 TD pass -- to WR Hunter Renfrow -- and 3 INTs while taking 3 sacks. WR Davante Adams managed only 2 receptions for 15 yards on a team-high 9 targets. TE Darren Waller led Vegas with 58 receiving yards on 4 catches. Renfrow matched him with 4 receptions for 42 yards. The Raiders head back home to face a difficult 49ers defense in Week 17.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (oblique) is active for today’s game vs. the Patriots. He came off IR and returned to practice this week. Renfrow has averaged just 4.8 targets, 3.5 catches and 32 yards across 6 games this season and isn’t a recommended Week 15 fantasy play.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (hamstring) and WR Hunter Renfrow (oblique) will be "full go" against the Patriots today, according to NFL Network. Both guys were designated to return from IR and returned to practice this week. Renfrow hasn't done enough in his 6 games this season to be an attractive fantasy play. Waller is worth considering as a lower-end TE1 with upside.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (oblique) was activated, putting him on track to play vs. the Raiders on Sunday. He's been out since Week 9. Renfrow averaged just 4.8 targets, 3.5 catches and 32 yards across 6 games this season, so he’s not a recommended fantasy play.

The Raiders designated TE Darren Waller (hamstring) and WR Hunter Renfrow (oblique) to return from IR. Both guys will return to practice this week and are eligible to be activated for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. Waller averaged 6.0 targets, 4.0 catches, 44 yards and .3 TDs over the first 4 weeks of the season, ranking 12th among TEs in half-PPR points during that stretch. Renfrow has played in 6 games so far this season and averaged 4.8 targets, 3.5 catches, 32 yards and 0 TDs. His half-PPR scoring average in those games lands him 102nd among WRs. We wouldn't use Renfrow in Week 15 fantasy lineups. Waller will be a risk/reward, low-end TE1 if he plays this weekend.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow has been placed on IR with an oblique injury. He'll miss at least the next 4 games, making Week 14 his earliest possible return. Renfrow has dealt with a few different injuries this season and averaged just 4.8 targets, 3.5 caches and 32 yards across 6 games. He's cuttable in all redraft leagues. Vegas will now be without Renfrow and TE Darren Waller for at least the next 4 weeks, which should push even more value to RB Josh Jacobs and WR Davante Adams. WR Mack Hollins and TE Foster Moreau should also get target boosts. Keelan Cole figures to take over as the #3 WR but isn't worth adding to fantasy rosters.

Raiders WR Davante Adams racked up 10 catches for 146 yards and 2 TDs on 17 targets in Sunday's come-from-ahead loss at Jacksonville. He garnered 47.2% target share, 47.6% of QB Derek Carr's completions, 56.4% of the team's receiving yards and the only 2 TDs. TE Foster Moreau ranked 2nd with 5 targets, catching only 2 for 42 yards. WRs Hunter Renfrow (3-26 receiving) and Mack Hollins (2-17) each drew 4 targets. The Raiders host the Colts in Week 10, a defense that entered Sunday as a near-neutral scoring matchup for fantasy QBs but 4th-toughest on WRs.

Raiders WR Davante Adams caught just 1 pass among 5 targets in a futile effort by the Vegas offense in Sunday's shutout loss to the Saints. Adams likely felt some impact from dealing with the flu during the week, and he wasn't the only Raider who fell ill. TE Foster Moreau led the team with 9 targets, in a game that saw QB Jarrett Stidham relieve Carr in garbage time. WR Mack Hollins led the squad in receptions (7) and receiving yards (64). WR Hunter Renfrow saw only 2 targets, catching 1 for 6 yards. Vegas travels to Jacksonville in Week 9.

Raiders WR Davante Adams drew a target on one-third of Las Vegas' pass attempts in Sunday's win over the Texans. He posted an 8-95 receiving line on 9 looks, claiming 38.1% of QB Derek Carr's completions and 39.4% of the receiving yards. WR Hunter Renfrow, TE Foster Moreau and RB Josh Jacobs tied for 2nd on the team with 3 catches apiece. Carr went 21-of-27 passing for 241 yards, 1 TD and no INTs. WR Mack Hollins caught the lone TD, among 2 receptions for 44 yards.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Texans. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a limited practice on Friday. We haven’t heard anything about a snap count for Renfrow today, but he obviously carries elevated risk in fantasy lineups. WR Mack Hollins (heel) is also active for Vegas.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (hip) is expected to play vs. the Texans today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Renfrow was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a limited practice on Friday. He's listed as questionable. The hip issue obviously adds risk to Renfrow's Week 7 fantasy profile -- but Vegas could really use him with TE Darren Waller out.

Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Texans. He was added to the injury report and sidelined on Thursday but returned to a limited practice on Friday. HC Josh McDaniels said he’s “hopeful” Renfrow will be able to play vs. Houston. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. Raiders-Texans doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET.
