    Here is a short video of Renfro making a head-up play against the Chargers.

    Fantastic play but the underrated Renfrow! Thanks for sharing that.

    Check out this route running by Renfrow against the Chiefs in week 10. The best view starts at 28 seconds.

    In the video Collinsworth claims that Renfrow "fell down."

    It didn't look that way to me. I think it was planned.

    Renfrow is darn near as good as Cooper Kupp. Both are very smart and both are uncoverable.

    It'd be great to see Hunter go over 1,000 yards receiving this season. He's currently under the needed pace but not by a lot (494 yards through 9 games). I'll never forget how much Renfro was ridiculed after he was drafted as being no more than a cheerleader or mascot who had no athleticism whatsoever. He's still mocked quite a bit but it's slowly becoming less as he continues to establish himself as one of the better receivers in the league.

    Jim Nagy complimented Renfrow saying he has "crazy and elite athleticism" .

    Nagy is a must-follow on Twitter for me. One of the few fair ones out there and has unique insight on players because he actually watches tape and uses official numbers. Not like these random guys who make draft profiles and make stuff up like the guy mentioned earlier who said Creed Humphrey was a limited athlete, or the guys that just throw every white stereotype at every white player they evaluate.

    Agreed! Decently fair and actually has scouting talent.

    After two straight one hundred yard games, Renfro is now on pace for his first thousand yard season. He needs 240 yards in the Raiders' final five games, or an average of less than 50 yards per game. With Darren Waller banged up, Hunter is Derek Carr's only reliable target (and Waller hasn't been very good this season even when healthy).

    Adam Thielen may not reach one thousand yards due to his high ankle sprain, so Renfro has a great chance to join Cooper Kupp as the only two White receivers to surpass a thousand yards in '21. What a great story he is, overcoming all the low expectations created for him by the fake news sports media to become one of the best receivers in the league!

    Excellent news regarding Renfrow. We knew he'd be a star after his performances against The best in Alabama! Finally putting it all together as a pro. Gee, look what the man can do with consistent targets!

    Renfrow is a joy to watch, as are Thielen and Kupp. People born to catch a football, they are.

    Hunter Renfrow reminds me of Wes Welker and Cooper Kupp reminds me of Kevin Curtis but at a level above Curtis.

    They both are young so we should have many years left to enjoy both of their elite talent. Thielen is nearing an end to a very good
    career. I'm hoping he can hang on for two more seasons. I really wanted to see him get to 1000 yards but the injury will probably
    kill that dream. Horrible timing. Adam Thielen is such a good story like Kupp out of a smaller school and very few if any expected
    him to go onto much success.

    If Thielan can string together two good games (100 yds plus) and two ok ones he will reach it. Really hoping he does.
