Raiders Releasing Hunter Renfrow

The Las Vegas Raiders are releasing wide receiver Hunter Renfrow when the new league year begins later on Wednesday, according to a source. Renfrow was to count $13.7 million against the 2024 salary cap. Along with Renfrow, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is being released, as expected. The move to cut Renfrow saves the Raiders $8.21 million in cap space this year. The 28-year-old veteran had a career year in 2021 by catching 103 passes for 1,038 yards and nine touchdowns, but he had just 61 combined receptions for 585 yards and two touchdowns in 27 games the last two years, making him an easy salary cap casualty this year. Depending on what other additions Vegas makes at the receiver position, Tre Tucker currently stands to benefit as the team's No. 3 wideout with the subtraction of Renfrow, behind top receivers Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers.

Hunter Renfrow A Cut Candidate

The Athletic's Tashan Reed suggests that Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow is a cut candidate this offseason. Renfrow was excellent in 2021, was named a Pro Bowler and was rewarded with a two-year, $32.3 million contract extension the following offseason that felt like a no-brainer at the time. But the extension has aged poorly. Renfrow couldn't stay healthy in 2022, played a career-low 35 percent of the offensive snaps last year, and has made just 61 catches since signing his extension. The Raiders would save around $8.1 million while taking a dead-money hit of $5.5 million if they cut or trade Renfrow before June 1. If they cut or trade him after June 1, they'll free up $11.8 million in salary cap space for 2024 while taking a dead-money hit of $1.8 million this year and a dead-money hit of $3.6 million in 2025.

Hunter Renfrow Remains Uninvolved

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow had zero catches on zero targets in the Week 6 win against the New England Patriots. It was the second time this season that Renfrow did not receive a single target. After catching one of two targets for seven yards in Week 5, Renfrow was completely uninvolved in the offense. The emergence of rookie tight end Michael Mayer has made it even more challenging for Renfrow to get involved. The usage of the former Pro Bowl wide receiver has been questionable, and it appears his future with the Raiders is also in doubt. Sources claim that Renfrow has been available on the trade block, and the team may move on from him. His usage may change with veteran quarterback Brian Hoyer filling in for the injured Jimmy Garoppolo, but it is unlikely. Despite a great matchup against the Chicago Bears in Week 7, Renfrow should not be rostered by fantasy managers, given his role in the offense.

Hunter Renfrow Continues To See Minimal Targets

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow had one reception for seven yards on two targets in Monday's contest against the Green Bay Packers. Renfrow has not seen more than four targets and has not caught more than two passes this season. After making the Pro Bowl in 2021, the Raiders receiver is an afterthought in Josh McDaniels' offense. Renfrow and the Raiders face the New England Patriots on Sunday. Renfrow's path to getting more opportunities does not seem apparent in this matchup. New England's defense is not as strong as it once was, giving up 72 points in the past two weeks. If the Raiders pull out to a lead, Josh Jacobs could get over 20 carries to run out the clock. The Raiders also involved rookie tight end Michael Mayer more in the offense last week. Renfrow could be the fourth or fifth option for the offense. Renfrow should not be rostered by fantasy managers, given his target share and usage through the first five games this season.

Hunter Renfrow Remains Uninvolved In Win Over Packers

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow has become an afterthought in the passing game with Jakobi Meyers in town in 2023. While Meyers went off for seven catches, 75 yards and his third touchdown of the season in the 17-13 win over the Green Bay Packers on Monday night, Renfrow caught one of his two targets for a seven-yard gain. The 27-year-old played just 19 of 64 offensive snaps on the night and he has just six catches for 59 yards and no touchdowns through the first five weeks of the season. Even when Meyers missed Week 2 with a concussion, Renfrow caught just one pass for 23 yards. There's nothing to suggest his usage is going to change anytime soon, so Renfrow belongs on the waiver wire.

Hunter Renfrow Continues To Be Minimally Involved

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow had two receptions for 12 yards on four targets in Sunday's contest against the Los Angeles Chargers. Renfrow's four targets are the most he's seen through four games, eclipsing his previous high of two in Week 3. With the big three of Davante Adams, Jakobi Meyers, and Josh Jacobs seeing most of the passing game usage, Renfrow has yet to have a decent fantasy game. Adams has not practiced the past two days and is currently questionable for the game on Monday night. If Adams misses, Renfrow could be in line for increased usage. That said, Renfrow did not step up in the absence of Meyers in Week 2, so it would be unwise to assume he would step up now. The 27-year-old receiver has run 83 routes and only earned a target on 8.4% of those routes. Renfrow should not be rostered by fantasy managers, given his target share and usage through the first four games this season.

Hunter Renfrow Continues Not To Get Targets

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow had two receptions for 17 yards on two targets in Sunday's contest against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Renfrow's two targets are the most he's seen through three games after receiving one target in Week 2 and zero in Week 1. Only Davante Adams, Jakobi Meyers, and Josh Jacobs are seeing consistent passing game usage for the Raiders. Even in Week 2, with Meyers missing the game with a concussion, Renfrow only saw one target on 19 routes run. Renfrow should not be rostered by fantasy managers, given his target share and usage through the first three games this season.

Hunter Renfrow Barely There In Week 3

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow continued his trend of barely being involved in the offense in the 23-18 loss to the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. Renfrow was targeted just two times in the contest, catching them both for 17 total yards. The 27-year-old managed to play a season-high 37 offensive snaps, even with Jakobi Meyers returning from a concussion, but it didn't amount to anything at all. It was a bad sign for Renfrow when he didn't do anything in last week's blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills when Meyers was out with his head injury. Through the first three weeks, Renfrow has just three receptions on three targets for 40 yards. He belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues until further notice.

Hunter Renfrow Quiet Against Bills

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow caught his only target for 23 receiving yards during the team's 38-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Renfrow was looking to take advantage of Jakobi Meyers' vacated targets this week but was unable to do so. The 27-year-old has only one target now in two games for the Raiders this season. Renfrow should not be rostered until he shows more of a rapport with Jimmy Garoppolo.

Hunter Renfrow - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow will look to step up for his team this week with fellow WR Jakobi Meyers out due to concussion. Renfrow was held without a target for the first time in his 57-game career in Week 1 while Meyers saw 10 targets in his Raiders debut. Those targets will have to go somewhere this week against the Buffalo Bills, and Renfrow is the most likely beneficiary out of the slow for QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Renfrow can be used as a WR4/flex option for fantasy managers this week, particularly in half or full-point PPR leagues.

Hunter Renfrow Impressing During Training Camp

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow (shoulder) has reportedly looked good during training camp, according to Raiders' general manager Dave Ziegler. The team sounds excited about Renfrow's development heading into the season. The 27-year-old was the subject of trade rumors this offseason, but nothing came of them. Renfrow is coming off an injury-riddled 2022 campaign. Before that, Renfrow showed the ability to be a legitimate playmaker in the league. It'll be interesting to see how the addition of Jakobi Meyers impacts Renfrow's fantasy value. Hopefully, Renfrow will bounce back from his 36-catch season last year. However, it's tough to imagine him being a reliable every week starter in fantasy.

Hunter Renfrow Sporting Non-Contact Jersey

Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow (shoulder) was spotted wearing a non-contact jersey in the team's practice on Tuesday. The injury has kept the veteran receiver out of preseason action so far. With the addition of receiver Jakobi Meyers, it's unclear what role Renfrow will have in 2023. Last season, the slot receiver only tallied 36 catches for 330 yards and two touchdowns, while battling several injuries. Renfrow has been the subject of trade rumors and does not need to be drafted in standard-sized fantasy leagues.
