Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller disappointed last week against a bad Falcons Defense but will likely bounce back this week against the Jets. The Jets Defense ranks 29th against opposing tight ends, and Waller is the second-most expensive DFS tight end this week. Waller has had a few bad performances this season but always seems to bounce back. He has followed up his disappointing performances this season with at least five catches in the following game. Look for Waller to rebound in a big way this week. He is definitely a must-start TE1 in Week 13.

Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller had a disappointing day as did the rest of the team, catching just four passes on seven targets for 27 yards. His seven targets was second-most on the team, but it did not amount to a performance that fantasy owners would like to see out of one of the top tight ends in football. With that being said, he has at least five targets in nine of 11 games this season and is still a must-start tight end despite this poor performance. He takes on a Jets Defense next week that allowed a touchdown to Miami's Mike Gesicki in Week 12.

Nov 29 6:33pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller registered four receptions for 23 yards on seven targets in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Spin: Waller has three or more receptions in eight straight outings, and two or more in all 11 games this season. However, he has 37 or fewer yards in four of his past five games. He is more of a low-end TE1 in most fantasy leagues right now, as the Raiders offense is just so inconsistent. The Raiders travel to meet the Jets in Week 13.

Nov 27 11:13pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller averaged 12.3 yards per catch in Week 10 and 12.6 yards per catch in Week 11, his two highest averages of the season.

Fantasy Spin: Waller is on pace to top 90 catches, and if he continues add some more explosive plays to his stable catch rate, he could be the best fantasy tight end not named Travis Kelce for the remainder of the season.

Nov 27 5:10pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller is a must-start TE1 option this week against the Falcons Defense. The Falcons defenses are one of the worst teams in the league against the pass and rank 23rd against opposing tight ends. Waller is the Raiders' No. 1 offensive weapon and is coming off a great performance against the Chiefs where he caught seven passes for 88 yards and a touchdown. He is averaging more than nine targets and six receptions per game this season, so it is reasonable to expect a very good fantasy performance against a poor Falcons defense. Look for Waller to have a big day in Week 12.

Nov 23 2:23am ET

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller pulled in all seven of his targets for 88 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Spin: Waller needs to average five catches per game over the last six contests to match last year's total of 90. He has enjoyed positive touchdown regression this season, scoring for the fifth time this year in this one after posting three during last season's breakout. With George Kittle out indefinitely and players like Mark Andrews disappointing more often than not, Waller has emerged as the clear TE2 in fantasy behind Travis Kelce. He needs to remain in lineups in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons.

From TheHuddle

Nov 23 12:20am ET

Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller once again proved why he is one of the best tight ends in football in a Sunday night loss against the Chiefs. Waller hauled in seven catches for 88 yards and a touchdown. It was the most yards and catches he has had in a game since Week 4. He has now caught at least five passes in eight of 10 games this year, showing that he is a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. Next week will be his debut against the Falcons, and there is a great chance that he posts another solid performance.

Nov 20 8:20pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller had a down week last week against the Broncos but will likely bounce back this week against the Chiefs. His receiving yards have been down over the last few weeks, but that was largely due to Derek Carr not throwing many passes. This week against the Chiefs will be a different story where the Raiders will need to throw more to keep up with the Chiefs explosive offense. Waller is averaging over eight targets and six receptions per game, and he is on the field for the majority of the team's snaps every week. Waller was good against the Chiefs in Week 5, catching five passes for 48 yards and a touchdown. Look for Waller to have a strong performance in Week 11.

Nov 20 8:03pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

Fantasy Spin: Waller is one of the main options in the passing game for the Raiders and should see a solid amount of targets against the Kansas City Chiefs. He can be a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 20 6:43pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders RB Jalen Richard (chest) did not practice all week but is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs. DT Maurice Hurst (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is also listed as questionable. FB Alec Ingold (ribs) was also limited in practice all week but taken off the injury report. S Erik Harris (oblique), OT Kolton Miller (ankle), LB Nicholas Morrow (knee), DE Carl Nassib (ankle, knee), CB Keisean Nixon (groin), TE Darren Waller (back) and OT Sam Young (knee, back) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 20, and no longer appear on the injury report.

Nov 19 8:53pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Spin: Waller has been targeted at least five times in each of the last six games but has posted as least 50 yards in only two of those games. He is still one of the better tight ends in the NFL and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Las Vegas Raiders RB Jalen Richard (chest) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 19. S Erik Harris (oblique), DT Maurice Hurst (ankle), FB Alec Ingold (ribs), OT Kolton Miller (ankle) and OT Sam Young (knee, back) were limited. LB Nicholas Morrow (knee), DE Carl Nassib (ankle, knee), CB Keisean Nixon (groin) and TE Darren Waller (back) practiced in full.

From TheHuddle

Nov 18 5:43pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (back) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Spin: Waller has been held below 50 yards and three straight games and hasn't hit 100 yards since Week 2. He still has four touchdowns on the season, but he certainly isn't as safe as he once was. He should have a bigger game in a pass-heavy matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11. He caught five of seven targets for 48 yards and a score against them in Week 5.

From TheHuddle

Nov 15 8:43pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller registered three receptions for a team-high 37 yards on five targets in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Spin: Waller has at least three receptions in six straight games, and eight of nine overall. However, he has 37 or fewer yards in each of the past three, which simply won't do for fantasy owners. He has slipped to low-end TE1 or even TE2 status in recent weeks with a handful of stinkers. He'll look to bounce back in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He had 48 yards and a score Oct. 11 in Kansas City in the first meeting.

From TheHuddle

Nov 15 8:40pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller had a disappointing day against the Broncos, catching just three passes on five targets for 37 yards. While it was a disappointing day, fantasy owners should not be concerned. It was a day where the Raiders rushing attack and defense mostly dominated the game, so it did not leave Waller a lot of opportunity to produce. This marks just the second game of the season where Waller has caught less than five passes, and he has been targeted at least five times in every game but one. Waller will look for a bounce-back performance next week against the Chiefs, where he caught five passes for 48 yards and a touchdown in Week 5.

From RotoBaller

Nov 13 7:53pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 10.

Fantasy Spin: Waller likel be one of the better tight ends available in fantasy leagues this week and should be a starting option in all leagues.

From TheHuddle

Nov 13 4:43pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders DT Maurice Hurst (ankle) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 10 versus the Denver Broncos. OT Kolton Miller (ankle) also did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful. OG Gabe Jackson (illness) was added to the injury report and did not practice Friday, Nov. 13; he is listed as questionable. DE Arden Key (foot), CB Keisean Nixon (groin) and OT Sam Young (knee, ankle) were limited in practice all week but no longer appear on the injury report. S Johnathan Abram (groin), DT Maliek Collins (shoulder), WR Bryan Edwards (ankle), S Jeff Heath (hip), FB Alec Ingold (ribs), CB Trayvon Mullen (hamstring), DE Carl Nassib (knee) and TE Darren Waller (back) practiced in full Friday and have also been removed from the injury report. C Rodney Hudson (non-injury) was not given a practice designation Friday but is also expected to play.

From TheHuddle

Nov 12 9:50pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller has been productive in almost every week this season and will look to continue that trend this week against the Broncos. Waller is not racking up the receiving yards he did last season, but he has caught at least five passes in five straight games. He leads the Raiders in targets and receptions and has caught touchdown passes in three of his last four games. The Broncos Defense is average in defending tight ends, ranking 16th in the league. Waller is one of the best tight ends in all of football and continues to be a must-start option every week.

From RotoBaller

Nov 12 8:03pm ET

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (back) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Spin: Waller has been held under 30 yards in each of the last two games but does have three touchdowns in the last four games. He has been a focal point in the passing game this season and should be a No. 1 tight end in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle
