Competition heats up for Raiders' No.2 wideout spot

Keelan Cole and Mack Hollins are the favorites to start opposite Davante Adams in the new-look Las Vegas Raiders offense according to Vic Tafur of The Athletic.

Hunter Renfrow will, as usual, be soaking up targets in the slot.  Tafur ranks both Cole and Hollins ahead of former Chiefs wideout Demarcus Robinson.  The 29-year-old Cole, averaged 16 yards per grab on 28 receptions for last year's terrible Jets offense. He finished the season with 449 yards and a touchdown.   In 2020 with the Jaguars, Cole managed 55 receptions -- including five touchdowns -- as a primary target in the Jacksonville offense.  Originally an undrafted free agent out of Kentucky Wesleyan, Cole has been a productive depth receiver for everyone he's played with.

Hollins, originally a fourth-round pick out of North Carolina by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017, is a big-bodied receiver who scored four touchdowns last year with Miami. It is unlikely that Cole, Hollins, or Robinson will have much value in fantasy leagues as, however they end up on the depth chart, they will all be behind Adams, Renfrow, and tight end Darren Waller in the pecking order for targets.
