Expert 
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Waller is a fantastic high-volume TE1, and he's set to draw even more volume than usual in Week 7. Why? The Raiders' offensive line had to prepare virtually for one of the league's best defensive fronts, so Derek Carr won't have much time to pass today. As a result, Waller will get a ton of short-yardage dump-offs, and he's a locked-in TE1 for me here. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Target hog Waller will be back in action Sunday against a stout Bucs' defense. Despite the matchup, he should be locked into fantasy lineups as a weekly top-5 play due to his volume in this offense.Higbee's topped out at 56 yards this season and hasn't crossed the end zone since his Week 2 hat trick. He's best to leave on the bench unless you're counting on a touchdown.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Waller's been one of the league's most consistent options at the TE position this season. He's always in your starting lineup as a top-5 option if he's healthy. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Through five weeks, he led all tight ends in targets (47). It certainly helped that Ruggs and Edwards missed time, but he's seen a steady stream of targets in almost every game, as evidenced by the seven-plus targets in 4-of-5 games. He's also caught at least five passes in 4-of-5 games, highlighting a floor that not many wide receivers have, let alone tight ends. The Bucs have been a team that's improved considerably against tight ends, though they're still not a matchup you have to avoid, as they've allowed four different tight ends finish as top-15 options through six weeks. There have been two tight ends who've seen more than five targets against them, and their totals were 5/80/0 (Jared Cook) and 5/46/0 (Noah Fant), two tight ends who move like receivers, just like Waller. With the lack of success the Raiders will have on the ground, it should lead to them targeting Waller a lot, similar to the Saints game back in Week 2. Start him as a high-end TE1 and he should deliver.Despite the Rams falling behind early against the 49ers, we didn't see Higbee run any more routes. Higbee hasn't seen more than five targets all year and has just 12 targets over his last four games. The Bears have allowed three different tight ends to compile at least 52 yards against them and have allowed a tight end touchdown in 3-of-6 games. The Rams could choose to go to their tight ends in the red zone a bit more with how good the Bears are against wide receivers, but we also have to worry about the fact that Goff hasn't thrown a single touchdown pass against the Bears in two games over the last two years. With how little Higbee has been running routes and being targeted, he can't be trusted as a TE1. He's just a TE2 and not a very good one.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Waller is averaging 11.3 fantasy points per game, he is a TE regardless of matchup. That said, he does not have a ton of upside against the Bucs 10th ranked fantasy tight end defense.
