We break down the news that Hunter Renfrow is still suffering from a concussion. What it means for Week 4 and beyond.

Friday PM update: The Raiders have ruled Renfrow out due to his concussion. He will not play on Sunday against the Broncos.

Friday update: Renfrow once again didn’t practice on Friday, as he deals with a concussion. The official injury report isn’t out yet, but he will not play. Mack Hollins should again see more work in his absence.

Thursday update: Renfrow was a DNP for a second straight practice, which does not bode well for his chances of clearing the concussion protocol this weekend. Unless he gets in at least limited work on Friday, he’ll be ruled out for Week 4 vs. the Broncos.

The Las Vegas Raiders will take on the Tennessee Titans in Week 4 of the NFL season. The Raiders could be without backup wide receiver Hunter Renfrow yet again this week. He suffered a concussion in the Week 2 loss to the Arizona Cardinals and didn't play last week. Renfrow was sidelined last week when the Raiders took on the Denver Broncos last week. He isn’t practicing on Wednesday and is questionable for this week.

Fantasy football implications

Renfrow was a star in fantasy football last year. After he was undrafted, he exploded and paid huge dividends to whoever picked him up off the waiver wire. In two games this season, he hasn't lived up to the hype. He has 10 receptions on 16 targets for 80 yards and no touchdowns. Even more concerning is that Renfrow has three fumbles so far.

If you are looking for a teammate that will get elevated with Renfrow missing in action, look no further than Mack Hollins. He currently leads Las Vegas with 240 receiving yards on 14 receptions and has a touchdown. Davante Adams will always be the guy to have in this offense, but Hollins is presenting as a good flex play this week.
