Saturday update: The Raiders have activated both Waller and Renfrow from injured reserve and both are set to make their return to the field in Week 15 against the Patriots.

The Las Vegas Raiders lost both Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow to injured reserve, as Waller has been dealing with a hamstring injury and Renfrow an oblique injury. But, they could get both back as early as this week, Week 15, per The Las Vega Review-Journal’s Vincent Bonsignore.

According to Bonsignore the team had thought about opening their 21-day window to return last week, but the Thursday night game was too quick a turnaround. Now they have a real chance of being activated to the 53-man roster this week against the Raiders, especially with the extra day to prep.

Fantasy football implications for Week 15

It would be hard to start them in fantasy games this week, as they’ve had long lay offs and after Davante Adams and Josh Jacobs, there doesn’t appear to be much room for consistent fantasy numbers. It’s worth see how much they play and their targets per snap before throwing them in your lineups if they play this week.
