Darren Waller Week 8 Outlook - Raiders at Browns

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Oct 29th 2020, 8:42am EDT

Through six games, Waller is averaging 9.2 targets per game, which leads all tight ends. Yes, more than Kittle's 9.0 per game and Kelce's 8.0 per game. Waller has delivered for his fantasy managers, too, as he's totaled double-digit PPR points in 5-of-6 games. In fact, going back to last year (span of 22 games), he has just one game with less than 8.0 PPR points. A matchup with the Browns is definitely not a bad thing, either, as they've allowed five different tight ends to score 10.2 or more PPR points against them this year and have allowed at least four receptions to seven different tight ends. When you see the list of tight ends they've played, you'll be even more excited about Waller's prospects this week. Mark Andrews (who went for 5/58/2), Dalton Schultz, C.J. Uzomah, Drew Sample, Trey Burton, Logan Thomas, and Eric Ebron are the tight ends they've played, so hardly a tough schedule. Despite that, they've allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to the tight end position. Knowing their opponents have averaged over 40 pass attempts per game, Waller should be locked and loaded as an elite TE1.
