Darren Waller still mulling over retirement

New York Giants TE Darren Waller has not yet come to a decision in regards to his potential retirement this offseason, according to the Athletic. The 8-year veteran has dealt with a number of injuries that have caused him to miss a total of 19 games over the past 3 seasons. Waller also stated that he hopes to make a decision prior to the start of the NFL draft on April 25th.

Fantasy Impact

Waller's potential departure would result in an increased target share for the other pass-catching options on this roster, most notably Jalin Hyatt and Wan'Dale Robinson. Both of these players have shown flashes throughout their young careers. With more targets being thrown their way, Hyatt and/or Robinson may become very productive for fantasy if Waller decides to hang up the cleats. On the other hand, the move would negatively impact Daniel jones' fantasy outlook. This is a team that is bereft of offensive weapons and Jones can ill-afford to lose his most reliable pass-catching option.

Darren Waller not yet decided on future

New York Giants TE Darren Waller reportedly mulled over a potential retirement in 2023 amid the Giants' six-win season and his injury battles, and he remains "still undecided" on his future status.

Fantasy Impact

Initial reporting stated that the Giants met with Waller's team and felt confident that the 31-year-old TE would return for Year 2 with the Blue. However, Waller followed up, saying that he has "not made a decision either way." The Giants were reportedly not aware following the season of his considerations, but they do not plan on making Waller a cap casualty.

Darren Waller grabs five passes in Week 17

Darren Waller caught 5 of 6 targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 26-25 loss to the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

This was Waller's best game over the last three weeks since returning from IR. The veteran TE finished with five-plus receptions for the fifth time in 11 games this season, but he remains at just one touchdown for the campaign. His 46.1 receiving yards per game is well below what many fantasy managers had anticipated this year too. The Giants' offensive woes, particularly in the passing game, have certainly not helped matters.
