Henry Ruggs is out against the Patriots in Week 3

Las Vegas will be without their first-round draft pick against the Patriots. Who will step up for your fantasy teams?

Las Vegas rookie wide receiver Henry Ruggs popped up on the injury report Thursday and is now out for Week 3, per Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune. Ruggs looks to have suffered a hamstring injury in practice and is now out. Last week he dealt with a knee injury, so there’s a good chance he’s not 100 percent in multiple areas. Bryan Edwards, Hunter Renfrow and especially Darren Waller will see extra work against the Patriots.

Ruggs looked good in Week 1 before hurting his knee. Injuries appear like they will continue to hold him back and their accumulation can’t be good for the long term fantasy upside of the Raiders speedster.
