19. That's how many targets Darren Waller walked away with in week one against the Ravens. That's objectively ridiculous. In fact, Waller's 19 targets in week one of the 2021 season is tied for the 3rd-most by a TE in NFL history. That list includes Jason Witten (22 targets in 2012), Tony Gonzalez (21 targets in 2005), Aaron Hernandez (19 targets in 2012), and Jeremy Shockey (19 targets in 2005). While Waller was "only" able to reel in 10 of those targets, it doesn't make much of a difference. You're not finding that level of target volume at the TE position anywhere else in the league. Start Waller moving forward as a top-2 option every single week.
