1. Hunter Renfrow, Wide Receiver

At one point, Hunter Renfrow was considered the best slot wide receiver in the game, and even racked up over 100 catches in a season. However, with the arrival of Josh McDaniels prior to the 2022 NFL season, it was clear that Renfrow was not going to be a part of the plan, and his production dropped off a cliff for the Raiders.

In 2021, the year before McDaniels arrived, Renfrow racked up 103 catches for the Raiders, a number that dipped to 36 in an injury-riddled 2022 campaign for the former Clemson standout. This season, Renfrow was once again a non-factor in the offense, targeted under 40 times all season for a career-low 25 catches and 255 yards.

Looking at the Raiders salary cap for this season, Renfrow was No. 3 on the list, as his $13,126,000 cap hit made up 5.59% of the cap. Renfrow was once a key on this Raiders offense, and he may get an opportunity under a new coach next season, but even with Pierce at the helm, and Bo Hardegree calling the plays, Renfrow only managed 15 catches, and has not caught a pass in three weeks now.
