12:15 am GMT , 9/14

The Las Vegas Raiders beefed up their options on the offensive side and it gives them a lot of options for the 2020 season. Drafting Henry Ruggs will give them a true number one threat with speed and he will pair with Tyrell Williams and Hunter Renfrow as the wide receivers. However, they might work in a few rookies to see what they can bring to the table. Josh Jacobs will continue to operate as the lead back, but Jalen Richard might work in as a change of pace back and get some receiving work. Darren Waller was a late bloomer but broke out in 2019. He will enter as 2020 starting tight end, not to anyone's surprise.

Las Vegas Raiders Depth Chart FAQ

After moving to Las Vegas, the Raiders made it very clear they were going to put some speed on the offensive side. Drafting Henry Ruggs III gives them a weapon to use on day one, but they also drafted Bryan Edwards. Defensively this team needed a lot of help, and over the last two drafts, they have made some questionable picks on the defensive side. We will have to wait to see how they turn out. Adding Cory Littleton in free agency was a great pickup as it solidifies a middle linebacker position they have needed to fill over the last few seasons.

Will Marcus Mariota Start For The Raiders?

Derek Carr is listed as the Raiders starting quarterback this season, and he is coming off a very good year. However, if he struggles, Marcus Mariota could draw some starts as the Raiders shake things up.

Who Are The Raiders Starting Wide Receivers?

Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow, and Tyrell Williams are the Raiders starting wide receivers. Ruggs is the rookie, and Las Vegas has high expectations for him, given he was their first-round pick. He also went ahead of Lamb and Jeudy.

Do The Raiders Have A Good Offense For Fantasy?

Given the Raiders defense puts this offense in a hole each week, they tend to push the ball downfield a bit, which creates fantasy opportunity. Josh Jacobs is a solid fantasy back, and both Williams and Waller have had fantasy potential as well.

Who Backs Up Josh Jacobs?

Lynn Bowden and Jalen Richard are the two names that back up Josh Jacobs on the depth chart. Richard will likely sneak in and get some passing down work, as Jacobs will operate as an early-down back as he did in his rookie season.

What Is The Weakest Part Of The Raiders Depth Chart?

The cornerbacks are the weakest part of the Raiders depth chart as they have some names who could make the jump to the next tier, but there is a lot of inexperience and names that are trending down.

Does Jason Witten Start In Las Vegas?

Jason Witten moved over from Dallas this offseason, and he will not start unless they are using two-TE sets. Darren Waller is the starting tight end for Las Vegas, and he is coming off of a big breakout season.
