Agholor caught two passes on as many targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 40-32 win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Agholor got behind the Chiefs' secondary and caught a heave from quarterback Derek Carr in stride for a 59-yard touchdown connection early in the second quarter. The 27-year-old receiver has now tallied three scores through his first five games as a Raider, quickly matching his 2019 season total in 11 contests with the Eagles. Agholor is on track to earn another start on the outside following a Week 6 bye if Bryan Edwards (ankle/foot) is unable to return against the Buccaneers.

Agholor caught all four of his targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

He made a good play to snatch the ball away from Bills safety Jordan Poyer in the end zone as the Raiders tried to mount a comeback inside the final two minutes of the fourth quarter. Agholor set season highs in catches, targets and yards with rookies Henry Ruggs (hamstring) and Bryan Edwards (ankle) sidelined, potentially setting the former Eagle up for an expanded role again in Week 5's tilt against Kansas City.

Agholor is on track to handle a starting workload during Sunday's game against the Bills, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Agholor only played 19 percent of offensive snaps during the Raiders' first two games, but he handled an 85 percent snap share Week 3 as injuries thrust him into the starting lineup. With Henry Ruggs (hamstring) officially doubtful and Bryan Edwards (ankle) ruled out, Agholor stands to start alongside Hunter Renfrow and Zay Jones in three-receiver sets versus Buffalo.

Agholor caught two of three targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Agholor has four catches through three games with Las Vegas, but he could see an increased role in Week 4 against the Bills. With Bryan Edwards (ankle) joining Henry Ruggs (knee/hamstring) on the list of injured Raiders wide receivers, Agholor could be the top target on the outside for quarterback Derek Carr against Buffalo.

Agholor caught his only target for a 23-yard touchdown in Sunday's 34-30 win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Agholor played just 12 snaps on offense in Week 1, but his touchdown catch late in the second quarter ultimately allowed the Raiders to head into halftime with a two-point lead. The trio of Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards and Hunter Renfrow saw a majority of the work at wide receiver while tight end Darren Waller caught six passes on eight targets, so Agholor's role is clearly limited at this point.

The Raiders will need Agholor to make plays in 2020, Levi Edwards of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Tyrell Williams (shoulder) shut down for the season, the Raiders have a plethora of young talent that's expected to start the year in three-wide sets -- Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards. Since Agholor played predominantly in the slot last year, it seems unlikely the Raiders take Renfrow off the field to open up a spot for Agholor. Still, Agholor could be a dependable, veteran talent, and although he has struggled with drops during his career, he still has impressive athleticism and has scored 15 touchdowns over the last three seasons. It's worth keeping an eye on his usage in a Week 1 matchup versus the Panthers.

Agholor's one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Raiders includes $887,500 guaranteed, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tafur expects Agholor to return punts for the Raiders as well as provide the team with added wideout depth, but the terms of the 2015 first-rounder's deal demonstrates that the free-agent market for his services wasn't especially robust. Agholor -- who caught 39 passes for 363 yards and three TDs in 11 games for the Eagles last season -- will now vie for slotting in a Las Vegas receiving corps that also includes Hunter Renfrow, Tyrell Williams and Zay Jones.

Agholor (knee) signed a one-year contract with the Raiders on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's a fresh start for the embattled 2015 first-round pick, as Agholor had essentially run his course with the Eagles after failing to record over 800 receiving yards in each of the past five seasons. It's hard to identify an obvious role, however, for Agholor, given Tyrell Williams remains as the obvious field stretcher while 2019 fifth-round pick Hunter Renfrow emerged as a valuable underneath route runner. While Agholor probably figures to be a quality receiving option for whoever wins the starting job between Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota, it's hard to suggest he'll be any sort of fantasy difference maker, especially if the team chooses to invest in a rookie receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Agholor said Monday that he'll meet with a specialist in Pittsburgh this week to received more information about his lingering right knee injury, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Agholor's injury sidelined him for the final quarter of the Eagles' regular season along with Sunday's 17-9 wild-card loss to the Seahawks, but the wideout noted previously that he first hurt the ankle in the team's Week 6 loss to the Vikings back on Oct. 13. The 26-year-old indicated he's still dealing with swelling in the knee, so surgery could be an option if the specialist determines that extended rest alone won't remedy the swelling. Agholor, who caught 39 of 69 targets for 363 yards and three touchdowns in his 11 appearances in 2019, is set to become a free agent in March.

Agholor (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's playoff game against the Seahawks after not practicing this week.

EDGE Analysis

Agholor will thus miss his fifth straight game, which sets the stage for the likes of Greg Ward, Deontay Burnett, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis to handle the team's wide receiver duties this weekend.
