The Las Vegas Raiders new-look receiving corps took some real hits this week. Bryan Edwards and Henry Ruggs are likely going to be sidelined for the team's Week 4 showdown with the undefeated Buffalo Bills.
It's a tough break for the offense, but it's certainly good news for Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow's fantasy football value this week.
Darren Waller Fantasy Football Outlook
Waller is coming off an underwhelming Week 3 showing, turning 4 targets into 2 catches for 9 receiving yards against the New England Patriots. He was a top-tier asset before that game though, averaging 12.0 targets for 9.0 receptions and 75.0 yards per game.
It's safe to expect Waller to return to that workload with the Raiders' receiving corps being so banged up. Waller is the TE3 in our Week 4 PPR rankings.
Hunter Renfrow Fantasy Football Outlook
Hunter Renfrow had his best game of the season last week. He racked up just 5 targets over the first two weeks of the year, but he exploded for 6 catches, 84 yards and 1 TD on 9 targets last week.
With Ruggs and Edwards on the shelf, Renfrow should serve as Derek Carr's No. 1 WR and No. 2 option in the Raiders' passing game on Sunday.
