What Condition the Position is in: Assessing Raiders level of need at WR ahead of free agency

With free agency under a month away, it’s time to check in on the Raiders’ wide receiver position to give it a condition of either Strong, Stable, Unstable, Serious, or Critical.

Starters: Davante Adams, Jakobi Meyers, Hunter Renfrow
Depth: Tre Tucker, DJ Turner, Kristian Wilkerson
Free Agents: DeAndre Carter

Adams had a down year with the Raiders due in large part to the QB situation. But keep in mind a down year for Adams is still better than the best year for most receivers. Meyers enjoyed a career year while Adams was dragging coverage away from him. Renfrow had his second poor season in Josh McDaniels’s offense that forgot he existed. Tucker flashed late in his rookie season and could be one to watch.

Condition: Strong

Adams is still one of the best in the game and getting a QB with an arm and pocket presence will bear that out. Meyers proved he is a worthy number two starter. The prevailing thinking is that the team will be moving on from Renfrow, opting for the cap money it would save. His departure would only drop the condition to Stable, mainly because the team likes the speedy Tucker to step up in that case, so they’d still be ok.
