Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Edwards caught just 11 of 15 targets for 193 yards and 1 TD across 12 games as a rookie last year.
  • He had a buzzy training camp and played 75% and 61% of the offensive snaps in Vegas’ first 2 games.
  • But Edwards sprained an ankle in the 3rd, missed the next 4 games and didn’t top a 32% snap rate the rest of the way.
  • He put together an impressive production profile at South Carolina. Edwards broke out as a 17-year-old true freshman and improved his production the next 3 years, including leading the SEC with 7.1 catches per game as a senior.
  • He also entered the NFL with an extensive injury history. He tore the meniscus in his right knee as a high school senior, strained a hamstring in 2016, hurt his left knee in 2019 and fractured his left foot while training for the Combine.
  • Vegas took Edwards with the 81st overall pick of last year’s draft.
  • Edwards returns to the same offense (HC Jon Gruden) with the same QB (Derek Carr) in 2021.
  • The Raiders lost WR Nelson Agholor, who led the WRs and ranked 2nd on the team with 82 targets last year, in free agency.
  • John Brown was the only significant addition made to the WR corps. He went for 1,060 yards for the Bills back in 2019. But he’s coming off an injury-riddled 2020, turned 31 in April and was dumped by Buffalo in March.
  • WRs Henry Ruggs and Hunter Renfrow return -- along with TE Darren Waller, who easily led the Raiders with 146 targets last year.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Edwards won a starting job out of training camp as a rookie last year. But he sprained an ankle in Week 3, missed the next 4 games and never recaptured a significant role.

He remains an intriguing prospect heading into year 2. And while there are a bunch of names on Vegas’ WR depth chart, there’s certainly opportunity for Edwards to win a significant role -- maybe even the #1 WR job.

Monitor his progress this summer and keep him in mind as a late-round flier.

Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (foot, ankle) is set to return for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. He’s not a fantasy option but might steal some snaps from WR Nelson Agholor.

Raiders WR Bryan Edwards will miss at least Sunday's game against the Bills with his sprained ankle, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's "considered week-to-week" otherwise so could miss further time. We'll see about Edwards' status on the other side of Week 4. He's not worth clinging to in most redraft leagues, though.

Raiders WR Bryan Edwards suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. Vegas was already without WR Henry Ruggs (hamstring) in that one. HC Jon Gruden said Monday that he's "concerned" about both guys. We'll need to track their practice participation this week. Hunter Renfrow, Nelson Agholor and Zay Jones are the Raiders' healthy WRs right now.

Raiders WR Bryan Edwards has been 1 of the buzziest players in the league through the first 10 days of August. The Athletic's Vic Tafur says the rookie has been "impressing teammates and coaches alike with his playmaking ability." And QB Derek Carr recently compared Edwards to Davante Adams (who Carr played with at Fresno State.) “Bryan is a very violent route runner,” Carr said. “He’s very violent and aggressive in his cuts, in and out of his cuts. … He reminds me of, when the ball is in the air, of Davante (Adams). Great ball skills.” Edwards has a good shot to win a top 3 WR job this season and is worth considering as a late-round flier in your fantasy draft.

Raiders WR Bryan Edwards (foot) is "ready to go" for the start of training camp, according to insider Adam Caplan. It's good news after Edwards fractured his left foot while training for the Combine back in February. The rookie is expected to open camp behind WR Tyrell Williams on the depth chart, per Caplan, but has the size and talent to push for a rookie-year role.
