Darren Waller notches just 65 yards in win

Darren Waller caught five of his seven targets for 65 yards in Week 2's win over Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Impact

Waller was still tied for the team lead in targets, but just failed to find pay dirt to make this a solid fantasy day. Still, the performance is somewhat of a floor for Waller, who continues to be a focal point of this offense even in a tough matchup against the Steelers. He'll continue being a top-3 option at TE in Week 3 against Miami.

Darren Waller soaks up career-high 19 targets in win

Darren Waller was targeted an absurd 19 times on Monday night, catching 10 of them for 105 yards while also tacking on a score.

Fantasy Impact

Waller could have easily had a much bigger game if not for a few drops and a penalty call on the offense. But still, this is exactly the type of game fantasy managers were looking for out of Waller this season. He is simply going to soak up so many targets in this offense that lacks any other clear cut receiving options. On top of that, Waller is great after the catch and has seen more and more targets in the red zone ever since his breakout campaign in 2019, only further raising his ceiling. He'll remain a top option at TE despite the tough matchup against Pittsburgh next week.

Darren Waller (ankle) returns to practice on Tuesday, per beat reporter

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (ankle) was seen on the team's practice field on Tuesday, per beat reporter Adam Hill.

Fantasy Impact

Waller had previously missed a few practices due to an ankle injury that hampered him across the last two weeks. The 28-year old star tight end for the Raiders should be in store for another top-three finish in 2021, which is likely why the team opted to bring him along on his recovery slowly. Waller is currently being drafted as the TE2 in half-PPR formats, with an ADP of 22.9, meaning a second-round draft pick is likely needed to roster him in 2021.

Darren Waller ankle injury not a concern, per beat writer

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler says that Darren Waller's absence from practice with an ankle injury isn't a concern, and if Waller were prepping for a regular-season game, he could play.

Fantasy Impact

Fowler adds that the ankle issue is "not concerning. He has nothing to prove, so the team is taking it slow." Waller has been in HC Jon Gruden's offensive scheme for three seasons now and knows what he's doing. He is the focal point of the Raiders offense and can dominate weeks from the TE spot on your fantasy teams.

Darren Waller remains absent from Tuesday's practice

Paul Gutierrez of ESPN reports there's still no sign of Raiders TE Darren Waller at Tuesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

Waller last practiced eight days ago. The team hasn't revealed what's bothering the star tight end, but the issue is believed to be minor. We'll have to trust that this is the case until more information is known.
