Hunter Renfrow: Tallies 56 receptions in Year 2

Renfrow caught three passes for 24 yards on seven targets in Sunday's 32-31 win over the Broncos, bringing his season totals to 56 catches for 656 yards and two scores on 77 targets in 16 games. He also added 265 yards on 23 punt returns with a long of 32.

Analysis: Renfrow's 56 receptions paced the Raiders' corps of wide receivers, which doesn't include tight end Darren Waller nearly doubling the slot man with 107 catches (on 145 targets) of his own. Renfrow, who led the Raiders in red-zone receptions as a rookie, saw his touchdown count sliced in half this season while the aforementioned Waller and Nelson Agholor combined for 17 trips to the end zone. With two years remaining on his rookie contract, Renfrow figures to continue his development in Las Vegas alongside Henry Ruggs (concussion) and Bryan Edwards.

Hunter Renfrow: Dynamic as punt returner

Renfrow secured all five of his targets for 34 yards, adding five punt returns for 61 yards during Saturday's 26-25 loss to Miami.

Analysis: Renfrow posted 32 and 19-yard punt returns during the Week 16 defeat, with the former helping Las Vegas to its first touchdown of the contest at the 8:25 mark of the first quarter. The 25-year-old's five targets, meanwhile, tied him for third on the team behind Nelson Agholor and Darren Waller, who each enjoyed significantly more explosive offensive nights with receiving outputs of 155 yards and 112 yards, respectively. Agholor notched the Raiders' lone receiving score of Week 16, while Renfrow carries an eight-game scoring drought into a season finale against the Broncos.

Hunter Renfrow: Good to go this week

Renfrow (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation for Saturday night's game against the Dolphins after practicing fully Wednesday and Thursday.

Analysis: Renfrow, who was forced out of last Thursday's game against the Chargers after just 13 snaps on offense, has thus gained medical clearance to suit up this weekend. While his ceiling in standard fantasy formats is modest, Renfrow retains some utility in PRR leagues, having logged a 48/598/2 stat line through 14 games to date.

Hunter Renfrow: Practices in full

Renfrow (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: The Raiders haven't yet announced that Renfrow is out of the league's five-step concussion protocol, but at the very least the veteran slot man is making tangible progress. He appears to be trending in the right direction for Saturday's home game against the Dolphins.

Hunter Renfrow: Turns in limited practice

Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said Renfrow (concussion) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Renfrow was diagnosed with a concussion after exiting in the second half of the Raiders' Week 15 loss to the Chargers, but his ability to practice in some fashion to begin Week 16 implies progress as he navigates the NFL's five-step protocol for head injuries. The wideout will look to upgrade to full activity and gain clearance from independent neurologist ahead of Saturday's game against the Dolphins.

Hunter Renfrow: Done for the day

Renfrow (concussion) has been ruled out to return to Thursday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Renfrow was evaluated for a concussion late in the third quarter, and it seems as though he's now entered the league's five-step protocol for such injuries. With quarterback Derek Carr (groin) also ruled out for the rest of Thursday's game, backup Marcus Mariota will now also have to make do without his main slot receiver.

December 17, 2020 7:44 PM EST

Hunter Renfrow: Evaluated for concussion

Renfrow is being evaluated for a concussion and questionable to return to Thursday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Renfrow was forced off the field in the third quarter after suffering a late hit while attempting to bring back a punt. He secured one of two targets for four yards before exiting Thursday's game. With Henry Ruggs (undisclosed) already sidelined on the COVID list, Bryan Edwards and Zay Jones could see increased opportunities if Renfrow can't return.

Hunter Renfrow: Fumbles in defeat to Colts

Renfrow caught five passes for 38 yards on seven targets and returned one punt for 11 yards in Sunday's 44-27 loss to the Colts, but he also lost a fumble.

Analysis: Renfrow's costly fumble came with the Raiders already down two scores in the fourth quarter, ultimately clinching a victory for the Colts. Nonetheless, Renfrow has been dealt six or more targets in three consecutive contests, averaging 5.3 catches per game during this stretch. He'll look to stay busy on Thursday Night Football this week against the Chargers.

Hunter Renfrow: Four catches in Week 13 win

Renfrow caught four of six targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Renfrow wasn't heavily involved even though quarterback Derek Carr threw for 381 yards and three touchdowns, as more than half of that production went to tight end Darren Waller. The slot receiver has topped 30 yards in 10 of his last 11 games but has topped 60 yards only twice this season, as his role in the Raiders' offense remains steady but unspectacular ahead of a Week 14 matchup with the Colts.

Hunter Renfrow: Team's top pass-catcher Week 12

Renfrow reeled in seven of nine targets for a team-high 73 receiving yards during Sunday's 43-6 loss to the Falcons.

Analysis: Renfrow was Derek Carr's busiest pass-catcher Sunday, out-targeting tight end Darren Waller by two. That's noteworthy given that Waller entered the game with 83 targets on the season, more than double the amount of Las Vegas' No. 2 option, Renfrow (41). With only one outing of more than 60 receiving yards on the year coming into Sunday, Renfrow had demonstrated a limited ceiling in fantasy. He has a chance at consecutive lucrative outings with a Week 13 matchup against the Jets' 30th-ranked pass defense approaching.

Hunter Renfrow: Tallies two receptions Sunday

Renfrow caught two passes on as many targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 35-31 loss to the Chiefs. He also returned a pair of punts for a total of 11 yards.

Analysis: Renfrow has now recorded at least two receptions in five consecutive games since the Raiders' Week 6 bye, but Nelson Agholor and Darren Waller continue to flash more fantasy upside in the Raiders' aerial attack. Renfrow will hope to take advantage of a beatable Falcons secondary in Week 12 as the Raiders travel to Atlanta.

Hunter Renfrow: Huge return called back

Renfrow caught both of his targets for 30 receiving yards, adding three punt-return attempts for 20 yards during Sunday's 37-12 win against the Broncos.

Analysis: Renfrow flashed with a 25-yard reception on Las Vegas' opening drive of the afternoon, and he also had an electrifying 29-yard punt return called off because of a holding penalty on teammate Keisean Nixon. The Clemson product added a 16-yard punt return that would stand, rounding out a solid day on special teams. It was a quiet afternoon from the second-year man on the offensive side, as was the case for the entire Raiders passing-catching group, with zero touchdowns being scored via the air and no players exceeding 40 receiving yards. A Week 11 matchup with the defending champion Chiefs calls for a more pass-heavy game script.

Hunter Renfrow: Leading receiver in Sunday's win

Renfrow caught two of three targets for 60 yards in Sunday's 31-26 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: His 53-yard grab in the third quarter set up a Darren Waller touchdown, and wound up making Renfrow the Raiders' leader in receiving yards on the afternoon. The second-year slot receiver isn't getting a lot of volume, seeing four targets or less in five of eight games so far this year, but he's earned the trust of Derek Carr. He could be more involved in Week 10 against a Broncos defense that's been stingier on the ground than through the air.

Hunter Renfrow: Grabs second TD of 2020

Renfrow corralled all four of his targets for 26 receiving yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 16-6 win against the Browns.

Analysis: Renfrow has been somewhat of a high-floor option of late, with four or more catches in four of his five appearances since Week 3. The second-year pro has also averaged 50.2 receiving yards per game during that span, hauling in his only TDs of 2020 in Weeks 3 and 8. Renfrow, Henry Ruggs and Darren Waller were the only Raiders with at least four targets Sunday, as the young pass-catching trio now shifts focus to a Week 9 intradivisional clash against the Chargers.

November 1, 2020 6:35 PM EST

Hunter Renfrow: Targeted six times in loss

Renfrow caught four of six targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Renfrow was back on quarterback Derek Carr's radar following the team's bye, having been targeted just once in Week 5 at Kansas City. The Clemson product will now face a Browns secondary that just gave up over 400 passing yards in a close win over the Bengals on Sunday.

October 26, 2020 8:57 AM EST

Hunter Renfrow: Held to one reception vs. Chiefs

Renfrow caught his only target for 42 yards in Sunday's 40-32 win over the Chiefs.

Analysis: Renfrow's 42-yard reception on third and long in the fourth quarter was crucial for the Raiders' upset victory, but the one-catch performance disappointed fantasy managers after he racked up 17 total targets in Weeks 3 and 4. Fellow receiver Bryan Edwards (ankle/foot) has a chance to return Week 7 following the team's bye, but his potential availability might not have much of an affect on Renfrow's workload in the slot.

October 12, 2020 8:29 AM EST

Hunter Renfrow: Hauls in five passes

Renfrow caught five of eight targets for 57 yards in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Aside from an acrobatic 37-yard reception down the sideline late in the contest, Renfrow was held in check despite the absences of fellow receivers Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring) and Bryan Edwards (ankle). Nonetheless, quarterback Derek Carr has thrown a total of 17 passes at Renfrow throughout the Raiders' past two games, and the slot man could continue to see additional looks if the aforementioned rookie duo remains sidelined in Week 5 at Kansas City.

October 5, 2020 8:27 PM EST

Hunter Renfrow: Opportunity knocks Week 4

Renfrow looks in line to lead the Raiders' receiving corps during Sunday's game against the Bills, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Renfrow is the leading candidate to serve as Las Vegas' No. 1 receiver with Henry Ruggs (hamstring) doubtful and Bryan Edwards (ankle) ruled out. Nelson Agholor and Zay Jones also stand to start in three-wide sets, assuming Ruggs sits out, while Josh Jacobs and Darren Waller could take on even more focal roles on offense. Renfrow had a team-high 84 yards and a touchdown against New England in Week 3, and he should get the opportunity to log another productive day versus Buffalo.

October 2, 2020 1:32 PM EST

Hunter Renfrow: Finds end zone in loss

Renfrow caught six of nine targets for a team-high 84 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-20 loss to New England.

Analysis: Renfrow appeared to have scored a 27-yard touchdown late in the first half but was ruled down on the 1-yard line. He got his touchdown after all from 13 yards out with 1:54 left in the fourth quarter and was the only Raiders receiver to top 50 yards. Darren Waller (knee) and Josh Jacobs (hip) played through injuries, while Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring) sat this one out and Bryan Edwards left the game with an ankle injury, so Renfrow is Las Vegas' healthiest regular skill position player heading into a Week 4 matchup with the Bills.

Hunter Renfrow: Couple big catches on MNF

Renfrow caught all three of his targets for 37 receiving yards during Monday's 34-24 win against the Saints.

Analysis: Renfrow recorded two receptions that spanned 15-plus yards, with one coming on the Raiders' first touchdown drive of the game in the early-second quarter, and the other on Las Vegas' TD drive in the fourth quarter. Tight end Darren Waller completely dominated the pass-catching workload in attracting 16 targets on the night, while not another Raider finished above three. Even with Derek Carr having thrown to a 73.5 percent completion rate and a 4:0 TD:INT, Renfrow has so far been a low-volume option in the passing game. If a breakout performance were to come for Renfrow Week 3 against New England, it may come via red-zone usage, as he finished second on the team in red-zone looks last year with 10.
