How to handle Henry Ruggs injury in Week 4 fantasy football

It looks like the Raiders won’t have Ruggs for the second week in a row.

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs is listed as doubtful for this week’s game against the Buffalo Bills. Despite the sliver of hope in the official injury designation, he is not expected to play for the second week in a row. A hamstring issue is plaguing Ruggs, and it’s turning into the kind of injury that fantasy owners will need to keep an eye on as it lingers.

Fantasy impact: Henry Ruggs injury

Without Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow stands to benefit the most among the Raiders wide receivers. Last week against the Patriots, Renfrow caught six of nine passes for 84 yards and a touchdown. He should again get some looks from quarterback Derek Carr.

Tight end Darren Waller could also be in for a big rebound after being erased by the Patriots last week. Waller lead the team in targets with 28, and it’s not even close. He should definitely be in lineups this week.
