There's bound to be some hesitancy about drafting tight ends early after guys like George Kittle, Darren Waller, Kyle Pitts, T.J. Hockenson and Logan Thomas failed to live up to their lofty projections (due to injury or not). But the process was still sound behind adding some of those players in the early rounds if you look at their per-game production. Speaking to Waller, the Raiders tight end came in third in expected fantasy points per game (14.6), which ranked top-20 among all tight ends and wide receivers. He also ranked sixth in points per game (12.1) and second in targets per game (8.5) The major concern with Waller in 2022 is how much Davante Adams will eat into his targets. However, I'd focus more on valuing Waller based on how good the Raiders offense as a whole can be with the addition of Adams. I'd be willing to forego one or fewer targets per game for Waller, if it means more scoring opportunities. The big-bodied Black Hole tight end is primed for positive touchdown regression after converting just two of his 10 end-zone targets into touchdowns in 2021.Amari Cooper finished last season 27th in half-PPR per game (11.2), which was in line with his career average. There is hope that he can provide a higher floor as the clear No. 1 wide receiver in Cleveland. And that floor will be accompanied by an extremely high ceiling with Deshaun Watson entrenched under center over the final 10 games of the season. The ex-Texans quarterback fueled top fantasy WR finishes for the likes of Brandin Cooks (WR16, 2020) and Will Fuller (WR8/game, 2020) the last time he played. And prior to that, he supplemented DeAndre Hopkins as the fantasy WR4 and WR10 from 2018-2019. However, the boom-or-bust nature to his game will likely remain a staple of his game. Having Brissett over the first six weeks - alongside a projectable run-heavy offense - will make Cooper inconsistent. Although Brissett can prove to be serviceable, he is a significant downgrade compared to Dak Prescott. If Cooper only managed to finish as WR27 in 15 games with Prescott, it's hard to be optimistic about him as the Browns WR1 or your fantasy WR2. There's also a glaring issue of the indoor/outdoor splits that Cooper has posted during his career.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Darren Waller is one of the most underrated TEs in the league. He's a mismatch for defenders. He's too big for DBs to cover and too fast for LBs. It's true that newly signed WR Davante Adams will take some of his targets. But Adams presence will also free up some coverage. The bigger concern I have is with the offensive line. They struggled in pass protection last year and didn't make any significant improvements. That could spell trouble for a stationary QB like Derek Carr. That said, the AFC West figures to have plenty of shootouts. Darren Waller might be an ADP faller, but Ringo thinks he's still a baller- word! At TE5, Waller seems undervalued. In Vegas, always bet on the Silver and Black.Cooper's value hinges on DeShaun Watson's suspension. If Watson gets suspended for most of the season, Cooper's outlook takes a nosedive. QB Jacoby Brissett is more of a game manager than a gunslinger. And Cleveland is a run-oriented offense as it is. WR 22 is way too high for a WR on Browns' offense that figures to struggle this year. Keep an eye on Watson's suspension news this summer. Once we know for certain if and when he'll be back in 2022, that's when we can more accurately predict Browns' players. Until then- avoid!
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Waller had four double-digit fantasy games in 2021, but he also missed 6 games due to injury. Waller is entering his 30-year old season in 2022, but he should still be an elite fantasy tight end.Cooper had only 97 targets, 63 receptions, 786 yards, and eight touchdowns in the 2021 fantasy season. Cooper is now a Brown and while he will have upside catching balls from Deshaun Watson, that will not happen for at least the first six games due to Watson's suspension being appealed. That makes Cooper a low upside WR3 with WR2 upside later in the season.
Wolf of Roto Street

 8/3: 8/3: Up-and-down we go. Now the NFL Appeals & will push for season-long suspension, most expect it to stick. I'm ranking as if Watson won't play in 2022 until told otherwise - wish is a huge downgrade for Cooper, Njoku, Chubb, Hunt, everyone. Avoid CLE. 8/1: The ruling is in: 6 games. As absurd as that is, it gives Watson & his pass-catchers a whole lot more appeal, greatly raising all their ceilings for the last 2/3rds of the season (Cooper, DPJ, Njoku) 7/19: Wastson's suspension likely being 8 or under significantly raises the appeal of ALL Browns Pass-catchers, especially Cooper *UPDATEx 3 (6/8) - Liklihood of major DW Suspension coming, potentially for full year. Cooper takes a huge hit with dramatic drop in QB play & likely huge schematic shifts

Should certainly lose a decent amount of target share with Davante Adams now in the Raiders' fold, but that could be offset by also losing some defensive attentionHis stock rises and falls on the tide of the Deshaun Watson off-field drama
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
A consensus top-25 overall pick in 2021 after a huge 2020, Waller was a colossal disappointment. A late-season injury was partly to blame, but he was unimpactful for long stretches. Waller will be entering his age-30 season, so a bounceback can't be taken for granted, and it's a safe bet that WR Davante Adams will put a dent in Waller's target total.
