Derek Carr483.1333.3374421.58.4533.391.60.5231.02
Finishing as a top-20 fantasy quarterback every year of his career, Carr was fantasy's QB17 in 2019. On the other hand, Carr has finished as a top-12 fantasy quarterback only once (2016) in his career. So while he's performed better than most likely realize, there has been limited upside as well. That said, the Raiders are giving him every opportunity to succeed by loading up on pass-catchers in the draft and free agency.
Marcus Mariota47.828.7351.


Josh Jacobs258.411377.1129.7242.10.59184.11
Jacobs had double-digit carries every week he was active as a rookie and ranked among the top 10 players in touches per game (20.15) in 2019. That said, Jacobs had more than three targets only once last season. While Jacobs has a goal to catch "at least 60 balls, the team re-signed Jalen Richard (36 catches on 43 targets in 2019) and drafted the hybrid/ex-receiver Lynn Bowden as a running back.
Jalen Richard37.7162.10.5732.2296.20.6453.09

Henry Ruggs III50.7717.45.836.741.50.13111.65
A surprise to some as the first receiver off the board in the draft, it was not a surprise to any that Ruggs ran the fastest 40-yard dash (4.27) at the combine in February. With game-breaking speed, Ruggs scored on one of every four times he touched the ball in college.
Hunter Renfrow45.7514.13.200070.61
After returning from a late-season injury, Renfrow closed his rookie campaign with a bang. The slot receiver had a 6/102/1 line (or better) in each of his final two games to finish the year with 49/605/4 on 71 targets over 13 games. A step forward in volume is unlikely for the Clemson product given the draft capital that Mike Mayock used to improve the team's receiving corps this offseason.
Tyrell Williams33.7500.43.0300068.22
Williams began the season with a touchdown in his first five games, but he reached the 50-yard mark in only four of 14 games in his first season with the Raiders. It's likely that his four-year streak of 650-yard seasons ends in 2020.
Bryan Edwards33.7426.32.8600059.79
When describing Edwards, Derek Carr compared him to his former Fresno State teammate Davante Adams. "Bryan is a very violent route runner and that's a good thing. He's very violent, he's very aggressive in his cuts, he reminds me -- when the ball is in the air -- of Davante, great ball skills." Definitely a player to target in dynasty drafts, Edwards may outperform the expectations most have for his rookie season as well.
Nelson Agholor7.173.50.431.150.0110.49
Zay Jones1.412.90.110001.95


Darren Waller68.7827.83.44000103.42
In his breakout season, Waller finished second amongst tight ends in receptions (90), third in targets (117) and second in yards (1,145). With the team's additions via free agency and the draft, Waller will have much more competition for targets in 2020, but he's still a top-five option at the position.
Foster Moreau15.5136.41.5500022.94
With the addition of Jason Witten and a number of rookie receivers, Moreau's numbers my actual decline from his rookie season (21/174/5).
Jason Witten16.3134.50.8200018.37
A shell of his former self in terms of fantasy production, Witten still managed to post a top-12 season in his first year out of retirement. That said, his 8.4 Y/R and 6.4 Y/T were the lowest of his career and his non-rookie lows of 83 targets and 63 receptions are about to plummet as well.
Derek Carrier2.622.90.250003.79
