Sleepers and Busts
Waller the Baller is in the first tier of tight ends. He's a matchup nightmare with his size and speed. The concerns involve the Raiders offensive line which took some hits in the offseason. Carr isn't mobile at all and that could derail some promising drives. The good news is the game script should lead to him getting a lot of catches with the Raiders trailing in the 4th Qtr.Austin Hooper was signed for big money by the Browns, but they have a run oriented offense which made no sense. After he left the Falcons, his stats sunk like the Orca in the movie Jaws. It's hard to see things getting any better in 2021. Hoopah! Slow ahead if you please! No thanks.
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
In a world where Kelce doesn't exist, Waller is the answer for best fantasy TE. Waller, who finished 2nd in scoring for TEs, recorded 61.1 more fantasy points (202.9) than the TE3 overall, Robert Tonyan (141.8). To put that into perspective, that is the same gap of points between Tonyan and the TE21 overall, Irv Smith Jr. The Raiders did not add any offense weapons of note outside of a 31-year old John Brown, and they lost their leading WR Nelson Agholor. Even if Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards take leaps as second-year players, there is no reason to think the Waller won't remain the No. 1 target for the Raiders. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Hooper was hyped up as someone that could potentially be a top-5 TE last season, but he fell well short of expectations and only finished as the TE21. While missing three games was certainly a large reason for that, Hooper simply wasn't involved in this Cleveland offense enough to warrant weekly consideration. For 2021, it's probably best to view Hooper as a low-end streaming option versus a locked-in weekly starter. My Very Early Projection: 51-521-5 receiving.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I remember getting Waller in the fifth or sixth round last year, and though it never felt amazing while doing it, the end result worked out. Why didn't it feel amazing? He's part of the Raiders offense, that lacks potency. The targets were what we were chasing, and the targets are what we got. But when you're paying TE2 prices in the second round, you not only need the targets, you need touchdowns. While Waller scored nine of them last year, he scored just three of them in 2019 in the same offense. There's a reason people pay up for Travis Kelce, and while I like Waller, I just don't have that guaranteed Kelce-like production. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Waller firmly established himself as one of the elite tight ends last season, leading the position in receptions with 107 and targets with 145, tied with Travis Kelce. He also led all tight ends with 27 red zone targets and 21 red zone receptions, and had an outstanding 2.28 yards per route run. To the extent you had any doubts about his fantasy stock after 2019, those doubts are long gone now. Draft him as a top-3 tight end with absolutely zero hesitation. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Waller had a monster season with 225.1 fantasy points. He is not quite as good as Kelce, but he is still a fantastic fantasy tight end.
