Las Vegas Raiders News

Hunter Renfrow, Makes eight catches

Renfrow caught eight passes for 58 yards on 11 targets against Cincinnati on Saturday.

Analysis: The Bengals really made Renfrow a focus of their defensive game plan, making it difficult for the slot receiver to generate his usual level of yardage per target. While Renfrow's season ends with a bit of a thud in this playoff loss, it was a highly impressive breakout season overall for the third-year wideout. Even if he's mostly a slot specialist, Renfrow produced in 2021 at a level that will compel the Raiders to give him a near three-down workload going forward.

Josh Jacobs, Solid showing on the road

Jacobs ran for 83 yards on 13 carries and caught four passes for 44 yards on five targets against Cincinnati on Saturday.

Analysis: Jacobs could have had a bigger day if the Raiders had been more competitive, but they only scored one touchdown in the 26-19 loss and didn't have the luxury of leaning on their run game. Jacobs' pass-catching showing was reassuring and his production as a receiver generally in 2021 could give the Raiders reason to give him more pass-catching work in future years, though to this point in his career Jacobs has been dependent on run-viable game flows for standout fantasy production.

Derek Carr, Inefficient in playoff loss

Carr completed 29 of 54 pass attempts for 310 yards, one touchdown and one interception while running for 20 yards on one carry against Cincinnati on Saturday.

Analysis: Carr has a history of struggles in colder conditions like these, so it's unsurprising that he got by more on volume than efficiency in this game. The unusually high pass attempt volume can't always be counted on, so it could have gone a lot worse for Carr's fantasy investors. While he'll never compete for elite distinction at quarterback, it's impressive that this year marked the eighth with Carr starting at quarterback for the Raiders, and the last three years in particular have marked a turned corner for him.

Darren Waller, Leads team in receiving

Waller caught seven passes for 76 yards on 12 targets against Cincinnati on Saturday.

Analysis: The season is over for the Raiders in light of this 26-19 loss, but Waller played well for his own part and served as the main engine of the Raiders passing game. Waller is under contract for two more years but is majorly underpaid, so it will be interesting to see if he and the Raiders revisit the terms of his compensation, but Waller in any case projects for another big season in 2022.

Pharaoh Brown, No targets Week 18

Brown was not targeted in Week 18's 28-25 loss to the Titans.

Analysis: Brown earned the most playing time of Houston's tight ends, but it never translated into any worth for fantasy teams. He finished with 23 catches on 34 targets for 171 yards and zero touchdowns. Part of that was due to the shaky nature of the offense, but Brown has been nothing more than a blocking tight end. He becomes an unrestricted free agent, and the rebuilding Texans could probably find a less expensive replacement.
