Questionable
Expert 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Waller had his first 100-yard game since Week 1 last week, he should be a TE1 on the road against a Cowboys team that is 22nd against fantasy tight ends over the last 5 weeks.Brown is expected to play tonight and he should be a boom / bust WR2 against a Browns D that is 6th against fantasy wide receivers over the last 5 weeks.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Not much went right for the Raiders on offense last week, but Waller returning to form had to make Raiders fans and fantasy managers alike very happy. Waller saw a whopping 32% target share in Week 11 and he reeled in seven of his eight targets for 116 yards and no score. He also averaged a ridiculous 4.14 Yards Per Route Run, which was second in the entire NFL last week only behind Justin Jefferson (min. 5 targets). There are plenty of questions surrounding the other fantasy assets on Las Vegas, but we should be completely confident in plugging Waller into our starting lineups this week as a top-2 TE option. In a matchup against the Cowboys that's allowing the 9th-most fantasy points to opposing TEs, we could see Waller feast.At the time of writing, there hasn't been many updates on Brown's injury status and whether or not he'll be ready to roll for Week 12 against the Browns. If he does suit up, Brown will be a borderline top-12 play against the Browns defense that's middle of the pack against opposing WRs. This game could quickly become smash-mouth football and each team could want to rely on their ground game, but Brown comes with enough upside to deserve top-tier consideration if does suit up. We'll continue to update with more information as the game gets closer.
