Draft note
by John Paulsen
Waller had an epic 90-1,146-3 breakout season on 117 targets, though the next closest Raider in targets was Hunter Renfrow with 71. I’d expect the offense to be more balanced in 2020 after the Raiders drafted Henry Ruggs, Bryan Edwards and Lynn Bowden, so Waller’s targets are likely to decrease in 2020. Fortunately, he can afford to lose some usage and still produce a top five fantasy season, but I wouldn’t expect another 1,000-yard season given all the weapons the Raiders added this offseason.

LV TE Darren Waller - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Denver Broncos

Darren Waller is ending the season on a ridiculous streak. He has over 100 yards in three of his last four games, and over that span is averaging 8.5 catches, 134.3 yards and 0.75 touchdowns per game. Waller is the best tight end in football not named Travis Kelce, and the Raiders’ passing attack is anchored by him. His contested catches are becoming legendary.

This week, keep Waller active against the Broncos’ third-ranked defense in aFPA to opposing tight ends. Despite the tough matchup, Waller is a must-start this week in all league formats. The offense runs through him, and he’s been largely matchup-proof throughout the season.
