Raiders WR Henry Ruggs has been activated from the COVID list and is expected back for Saturday night’s game vs. the Dolphins. The rookie hasn’t topped 3 catches in a game all season and is nothing more than a DFS flier.

The Raiders have placed WR Henry Ruggs on the COVID list, which will keep him out of Thursday night's game against the Chargers. That takes speed out of the lineup for Vegas, but Ruggs has yet to top 3 catches in a game this year. The rookie did rank 2nd (slightly) behind Nelson Agholor in snaps among Raiders wideouts in Sunday's loss to the Colts. His absence figures to elevate the role of fellow rookie Bryan Edwards, who operated as the #4 receiver against Indy. Edwards would join Agholor and Hunter Renfrow as the top 3 at the position for an upside matchup with a struggling Chargers defense.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Chiefs. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so he should be close to 100%. Consider the rookie a boom/bust WR3 in what could turn into a shootout in Kansas City.

Raiders WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring) is "hoping" to play against the Chiefs today, although no final decision on his status has been made, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Ruggs was listed as a full participant on both Thursday and Friday, so we'd be surprised if he doesn't play. We'll find out for sure around 11:30 am ET.

Injury Predictor

Henry Ruggs has elite speed and will be the fastest receiver on the field, in most competitions. He will need to develop his route running but has home run capability once the ball is in his hands. Ruggs transitions upfield with ease and is muscularly strong. He will be tested on press coverage and has good strength in his hands as he only dropped the ball once in 2019. Ruggs’ will need to compete with Tyrell Williams, but Ruggs should win. The offense scheme is probably what is worrisome for Ruggs. How will he be used, and can Derek Carr be productive with him?

Dynasty Spin: Ruggs’ speed is super-human, but so was John Ross and many other wide receivers who have not performed to expectations. However, it doesn’t mean that Ruggs won't be a stud. The Raiders' conservative offense is a bit worrisome, and can Carr utilize Ruggs in a way to maximize his talents? There is a massive ceiling for him if it all works. Ruggs is going as a late first-round receiver in rookie leagues and as a seventh-rounder in start-ups.
