Player Notes

  • LV puts Kenyan Drake on non-football injury list
    Raiders placed RB Kenyan Drake on the non-football injury list.

    Advice: The Raiders placed Jalen Richard and Theo Riddick on the reserve/COVID-19 list today as well, leaving them thin at running back. Josh Jacobs, Trey Ragas, and Garrett Groshek are their only remaining backs. Ragas and Groshek were UDFA signings for Vegas this spring. Drake was seen working with a trainer on the sideline at training camp but was not a participant in any drills. He will be eligible to return to practice after receiving medical clearance.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 3:06 pm

  • Richard and Riddick headed to reserve/COVID list
    ESPN's Paul Gutierrez reports the Raiders will place RBs Jalen Richard and Theo Riddick on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

    Advice: This leaves Trey Ragas and Garrett Groshek as the only pass-catching backs behind Kenyan Drake on the depth chart. Expect the duo to get extra work in that role as the Raiders have been entirely unwilling to use Josh Jacobs, a talented receiver out of the backfield at Alabama, in that role. Both backs were brought in as rookie UDFAs this year. Ragas and Groshek will be fighting for roster spots in training camp. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:31 pm

  • Henry Ruggs gained 13 pounds, wants to be physical
    Henry Ruggs said he gained 13 pounds this offseason in an effort to be a more physical player.

    Advice: Ruggs is hoping it leads to more production in the passing game and as a runner. The 22-year-old was given just nine carries as a rookie. Doubling that number would be nice as a way to get the ball in the playmaker's hands more in year two. Getting tougher will also help in the short passing game; Ruggs has no choice but to be better there because Derek Carr refuses to throw the ball deep. Ruggs is Vegas' No. 1 receiver and is a worthwhile flier in the mid-to-late rounds of fantasy drafts. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 1:59 pm

  • Patriots claim QB Jake Dolegala from Packers
    Patriots claimed QB Jake Dolegala off waivers from the Packers.

    Advice: New England must see something in Dolegala, as this will be his second stint with the team this year. The 2019 undrafted free agent spent time on the Patriots' practice squad last year before being cut this offseason. He slides in as the No. 5 quarterback in New England, behind Cam Newton, Mac Jones, Jarrett Stidham, and Brian Hoyer. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 1:49 pm

  • Prescott (arm) leaves practice as a precaution
    Dak Prescott (arm soreness) exited practice but the move was "purely precautionary" according to the team. 

    Advice: While it's never good to see a player leave practice, all of the buzz following his departure has downplayed the event. Prescott spent some time working with a trainer before jogging off the field. The news would be much more concerning if Prescott were dealing with an ankle issue as the star passer is coming off a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle. For now, we can assume Prescott is fine and the team is simply taking every possible precaution with their elite quarterback. He remains a top-five fantasy option at his position.
