Tre Tucker
Tre Tucker in Position to be Raiders' WR3
3 weeks ago

Las Vegas Raiders 2nd year WR Tre Tucker seems to be “taking the next step” as a receiving weapon.

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tre Tucker availed himself well as a speedy target as a rookie. Reports emerging from the Raiders’ OTAs and mandatory minicamp seem to indicate that Tucker will firmly be the WR3 in OC Luke Getsy’s offense. At 5’9″, Tucker is on the smaller side, but his 4.4 second speed and ability to cut on out routes and comeback routes have head coach Antonio Pierce impressed, “(Tucker is) a different dude…Don’t look at his size…he’s the biggest dude out there.”

 

The Raiders receiving corps is a full one with many mouths to feed. WRs Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers are well established targets, and TEs Michael Mayer and Brock Bowers were two of the best pass catchers at the position of the last 5 years, so Tucker may not have the volume to be a major fantasy asset, but were something to happen to those ahead of him on the depth chart, Tucker might be a nice late-round stash.
