Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Waller was one of last year's breakout stars and he helped propel several rosters to fantasy football championships. Now, his price tag has certainly gone up and you're betting on that production repeating this season. Waller certainly has more competition for targets so he could see his total from last year drop down, but he absolutely could make up for it with an increase in touchdown production. Waller's a fine selection in the mid-rounds, but he may not possess as high of a ceiling as he did last year.While Engram is incredibly talented and we've seen him finish in the top-5 at the position before, there's a very narrow path for him to return value on his ADP right now. There are a ton of mouths to feed in this offense and Engram's had trouble staying on the field the past couple of seasons. The targets simply may not be there for Engram and he's currently being drafted at his ceiling. I personally recommend looking elsewhere at the tight end position.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Moving him up slightly. Upside too much to ignore, especially with how much Jason Garrett used Witten while in Dallas.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Waller was extremely consistent last year and managed to finish #4 among fantasy tight ends but he was virtually the only receiving threat on the entire team. Now that they grabbed three quality wideouts in the draft, his target share should take a big of a step back. Even so, he is one of the few reliable tight ends.Engram is widely considered to be an excellent tight end but from an efficiency standpoint, that just hasn't been the case. Yes, he had a big rookie season but it was volume-based because Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard were all injured. More than likely, we are looking at the fifth-best receiving weapon this season behind Tate, Shepard, Slayton and Saquon. This is an easy pass in the sixth round in 2020.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
He had a special season last year that was replicated by only 4 TEs in the last 20 years.Engram was only healthy for eight weeks last year, and has a history of frequently being injured, but when he plays he is consistently in the top6 TE's.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There was just one tight end in all of football who finished all 16 games with at least 7.0 PPR points. It was Waller. Not only that, but he also offered a ceiling, hitting 16-plus points on five separate occasions. The issue with relying on that again is the new competition for targets. As much as we don't want to consider Jason Witten a threat, he's going to steal some targets. Not just him, but Henry Ruggs, Lynn Bowden, and Bryan Edwards are all guys who'll demand some sort of target share. I still view Waller as a top-five tight end, though he's teetering there.We heard rumors that the Giants were looking to trade Engram, though I wasn't ever certain that would be the case. As it turns out, he's their guy. The Giants don't have a prototypical No. 1 wide receiver who'll steal 140-plus targets, so Engram should be right back in the middling TE1 conversation this year.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Waller had 1,150 yards from scrimmage and 3 touchdowns, he established himself as the top playmaker in the Raiders passing game and he should have another big season in 2020.Engram missed 8 games in 2019 and finished with 474 yards and 3 touchdowns. He has TE1 upside playing with QB Daniel Jones, but he also has a lot of risk due to a lack of durability.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Slightly worried about his involvement when additional weapons arrive but that's a future worry. Took advantage of his opportunities in 2019.
