Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We were a little surprised to find Ngakoue this high in the rankings after finishing up the projections, but he's displayed the upside.

Last year just didn't fall in line with what we've seen from him in the past, and it's not hard to understand why he might have had a tough year. After holding out through the first few days of Jaguars camp, Ngakoue got traded to the Vikings on Aug. 30. Minnesota then traded him to the Ravens on Oct. 22.

So within a 2-month span, Ngakoue had to try to get comfy in 3 different defensive schemes. That's bound to challenge any player.

This offseason found the Raiders sign him to a semi-"prove it" deal. Ngakoue got $13 million a year, but on just a 2-year deal. Heading into just his age-26 season, he should be viewing this as an opportunity.

Vegas' investment says that Ngakoue will be a primary pass-rusher for a team that posted the league's 4th-lowest sack rate last year (and 8th lowest the season before).

The biggest question will be Ngakoue's playing time, which hovered in the 74-80% range over his final 3 seasons in Jacksonville. But he can deliver what we need with 60-65% playing time.

Know there's some risk on that front if you draft Ngakoue, and knock him down a little further if your league favors tackle scoring.

Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) and DE Carl Nassib (pec, toe) are active for today's game against the Steelers. Each entered the day questionable. Ngakoue is in play for IDP use, but the hamstring certainly adds risk.

Raiders HC Jon Gruden is "optimistic" that DE Yannick Ngakoue will be able to play against the Steelers today. Ngakoue is questionable with a hamstring injury that knocked him out of Week 1 early and limited his practice participation all week. The fact that he was able to participate each day is encouraging, but there's obviously at least some risk of re-injury here. Ngakoue is in play for IDP lineups, but keep the risk in mind as you're making your decisions. He has settled into low DL3 territory in our Week 2 DL rankings.

Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh. He left Week 1 early with the injury but managed limited practices all week. We'll check his status Sunday morning. DE Carl Nassib (pectoral, toe) is also questionable. He missed practice Wednesday before putting in limited Thursday and Friday workouts. The pair make up 2 of Las Vegas' top 3 at the position.

Raiders DE Yannick Ngakoue left with a hamstring injury in the 2nd half of Monday night's game against the Ravens. The team deemed him questionable to return, but he was standing on the sideline with no helmet. We'll see about the severity.

The Raiders have agreed to a 2-year, $26 million deal with DE Yannick Ngakoue, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's a questionable signing for a defense that has Maxx Crosby and 2019 first-round pick Clelin Ferrell in place, plus Carl Nassib, who arrived on a sizable free-agent deal last offseason. The money certainly points to Ngakoue taking over a primary pass-rushing role. We'll see what that means for everyone else's playing time. Ngakoue endured a rough 2020 that saw him get traded twice (from Jacksonville to Minnesota to Baltimore). His 8 sacks matched the previous season, but Ngakoue managed a career-low 11 QB hits (including just 3 over 9 games with the Ravens). We won't be pumped about Ngakoue in IDP drafts for 2021.
