News: 14 hours agoEdwards (ankle/foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
Spin: Edwards will miss his third straight game due to lingering foot and ankle injures, despite the fact that he's had the benefit of a bye week to get additional rest. With the rookie third-round pick out, the Raiders will roll with Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and Nelson Agholor in three-receiver sets.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: The Raiders selected Edwards with a third-round pick in April's draft. The South Carolina product is a strong, 6-foot-3, 212-pound receiver with four years of starting experience at South Carolina. Edwards can align all over the field and is an intriguing height/weight/speed prospect, though his shaky hands (22 career drops), route-running and separation skills are concerning. Edwards aligned in the slot 45% of the time and was primarily a short-area target in 2019 (8.2 aDOT), averaging a solid 2.6 YPRR. Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and Tyrell Williams lead the Raiders' depth chart, so Edwards will need to compete with that trio, as well as Nelson Agholor, Zay Jones and Lynn Bowden for rookie season reps. He's a better target in dynasty than he is in 2020 drafts.
