Las Vegas Raiders: 3 players who must step up with Henry Ruggs III gone
If you thought Waller was the go-to guy before, wait until you see what the Raiders offense will look like now. Carr had done a great job of keeping his eyes downfield and looking for Ruggs deep this season, but now that he is gone, Carr could likely look immediately to Waller like he did in Week 1.
Waller is clearly the best player on the Raiders, and he needs to prove that in the second half of the season. Waller needs to continue to do what he has been doing the last two seasons, and even take it to another level.
The Las Vegas Raiders were on a bye in Week 8 and we took the time to predict their record in the remaining games of the 2021 NFL schedule
Teams will be able to focus more on Waller now without the threat of Ruggs breaking open deep, so he is going to have to play the best football of his career to continue his production.
