Renfrow recorded one reception on one target for 23 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Bills.
Renfrow was projected to see an increased role in the absence of Jakobi Meyers (concussion) sidelined. That didn't come to fruition, however, as the only Raiders pass skill-position players to receive more than three targets were Davante Adams and Josh Jacobs. After failing to command a target in Week 1, Renfrow seems to face an uphill battle to be a consistent contributor to the offense in 2023.

Renfrow could be poised for a larger role Sunday in Buffalo, as Rachel Gossen of the Raiders' official site reports that Jakobi Meyers (concussion) has been ruled out.
Meyers was concussed late in the 17-16 Week 1 win over the Broncos after catching nine of 10 targets for 81 yards and two touchdowns, while Renfrow wasn't targeted in that game. Vegas doesn't have much depth at wide receiver, so Meyers' absence should lead to more opportunities for Renfrow in the slot while No. 4 receiver DeAndre Carter could step in on the outside opposite Davante Adams. "Jakobi's a really good football player and, so, if he's not available then everybody has to step up and give themselves great opportunities to produce, and that's a good thing for them," coach Josh McDaniels said, per Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. Considering Renfrow had a 1,000-yard season in 2021, his track record suggests he's the player most capable of stepping up for the duration of Meyers' absence.
Renfrow was not targeted in the Raiders' 17-16 win over the Broncos on Sunday.
Renfrow was not only overshadowed by fellow receivers Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers in the season opener, but the former logged just 13 offensive snaps, and even DeAndre Carter caught a pass on the Raiders' final drive. However, Meyers left the contest late with a head injury, so he'll be subject to the league's concussion protocol ahead of a Week 2 matchup in Buffalo. If Meyers is unable to go, Renfrow could handle a majority of the slot opportunities against the Bills.
General manager Dave Ziegler said he's "seen a lot of good stuff" from Renfrow (shoulder) during training camp, Anthony Galaviz of The Fresno Bee reports.
"It's been great to seen him feel great, playing great and ecstatic to see that development," Ziegler added. Renfrow was the subject of trade speculation earlier in the offseason and has barely been heard from this summer. He and Jakobi Meyers feel redundant as slot receivers, but the Raiders seemingly have a plan. Renfrow's fantasy startability is unlikely to return in 2023 if he's in Las Vegas.
Renfrow (shoulder) is practicing in a non-contact jersey Tuesday, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.
Renfrow has yet to play this preseason amidst the shoulder issue. Coming off a down 2022 under the new coaching staff, it's unclear what kind of role Renfrow is going to play this season following the additions of Jakobi Meyers and Phillip Dorsett in free agency and Tre Tucker in the third round of the 2023 Draft. Renfrow was the subject of trade rumors earlier in the offseason.
Renfrow isn't dressed for Sunday's preseason opener against the 49ers, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.
Renfrow is one of the few healthy offensive starters that isn't suited up for Las Vegas' first exhibition. The veteran's next chance to see game action will come Saturday against the Rams.
Renfrow has avoided addressing trade rumors and recently said he'd like to prove the Raiders right for re-signing him, ESPN's Paul Gutierrez reports.
Renfrow's 2021 breakout for a 103-1,038-9 receiving line led to a two-year, $32 million extension last summer, with the Raiders' new coach (Josh McDaniels) and general manager (Dave Ziegler) apparently optimistic the slot receiver would continue the success he enjoyed under the previous regime. It didn't work out that way as an oblique injury and concussion cost Renfrow seven games and contributed to an ugly season that he concluded with a career-low 330 receiving yards (barely more than half of his previous low-water mark). The Raiders then signed Jakobi Meyers in March, which led to speculation Renfrow could be traded, though the current plan seems to entail Meyers playing the perimeter more than he did in New England. There's no financial incentive to release Renfrow, as he already received a $4.32 million roster bonus and his $6.5 million base salary is guaranteed. A trade might make sense, but there's theoretically room for both Meyers and Renfrow to see a decent number of targets in a Raiders offense that lost TE Darren Waller and WR Mack Hollins this offseason -- especially if RB Josh Jacobs remains away from the team throughout August and into September.
Renfrow, who left practice early Wednesday with an unspecified issue, participated in Thursday's minicamp session, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports.
With Renfrow past the concussion and oblique issues that caused him to miss seven games last season, the 27-year-old is in line to work in a Raiders wide receiver corps that also includes fellow returnee Davante Adams, free-agent addition Jakobi Meyers and rookie third-rounder Tre Tucker. There had been some speculation that the slot man might be traded this offseason, but Reed notes that nothing is imminent on that front. As long as Renfrow sticks around, he'll have a chance to bounce back from his subpar stat line (36/330/2 in 10 games) in in 2022 in an offense that is slated to be helmed by Jimmy Garoppolo, provided QB's recovery from a foot injury goes smoothly.
Renfrow recorded seven receptions on seven targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-13 loss to the Chiefs.
Renfrow paced the Raiders in catches after commanding seven targets for the second time in his last three games. He made the most of that opportunity and showed strong rapport with Jarrett Stidham by hauling in passes of 16 and 14 yards to highlight his day. Renfrow also caught his second touchdown of the season on an 11-yard reception midway through the fourth quarter. After breaking out in 2021, Renfrow was limited to only 10 games this season and otherwise saw a sharp downturn in his involvement in the offense thanks to the addition of Davante Adams. Nevertheless, Renfrow will be back with the team in 2023 as he enters the final year of his contract.
