Las Vegas Raiders: 3 players you must start in fantasy football 2021 Week 1
Henry Ruggs III, Wide Receiver
Here is the sleeper choice for the Raiders. The former first-round selection at wide receiver is now the top player in the wide receiver room for the Raiders. He may be only going into his second season in Vegas, but the Raiders are very high on the former Alabama product.
The expectations for Ruggs in Vegas are astronomical, as the Raiders are hoping their investment in the speedy wideout will pay off this season. Looking back a season ago, Ruggs was not very special as a rookie, and borderline ghastly at times.
He had his struggles, but that is what being a rookie is about, the struggles lead to success, and this hopefully is the case for the Raiders here at least. Ruggs has been handed the keys as the top wide receiver in this offense, and with a year of acclimation with the Raiders offense and quarterback Derek Carr, just maybe it is the time to shine for Ruggs.
The Las Vegas Raiders have two strong running backs in Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake, but when it comes to fantasy, do they ruin each other's value?
Do not sleep on the second-year man, as he may just be poised for a potential breakout, especially considering the number of targets he will now be receiving.
