Raiders' Nelson Agholor only NFL WR with perfect passer rating when targeted
Agholor only NFL WR with perfect passerby rating when the target originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Nelson Agholor drew much ire from Philadelphia Eagles fans during his tenure there, including spawning an iconic meme that mocked his propensity for dropping passports.
Five years after the Eagles made him a first-round draft pick, they decided not to keep the wideout, and he signed with the Raiders in March.
After just three touchdowns in 13 games with Philly in 2019, Agholor has already scored the same number of touchdown catches in five games with the Raiders. Quarterback Derek Carr appears to have had a lot of success with Agholor this season as the wideout is the only NFL wide receiver to get a perfect passerby rating (at least 10 targets) when targeting.
Agholor played well, but the pass rating is a QB statistic and Carr has the highest percentage of passes in his NFL career (73.1) with 11 touchdowns on just one interception.

Whatever the secret sauce, Las Vegas is 3-2 and has a shocking win over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
The Raiders drew two wideouts in the first three rounds last April, but Agholor could be the most productive addition to the off-season position group by the end of the season.
