We break down the news that Darren Waller has a hamstring injury. What it means for Week 8 and beyond.
Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller injured his hamstring against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5. The Raiders had a bye in Week 6, but Waller was unable to practice or play in Week 7. He will practice on Wednesday for Week 8 though, which is a good sign.
Darren Waller will be practicing with the @Raiders today
Waller had a good start to the season with 10 receptions for 129 yards and a touchdown in the first two games, but has six receptions for 46 yards in the other two games and chance he’s played in.
With tight ends being mostly bad in fantasy this season and injuries hitting other good options, if Waller can suit up, he’s a must start in fantasy. The Saints have been pretty stingy to tight ends, allowing zero touchdowns and the second-fewest fantasy points. But Waller if pretty much matchup proof and will always be a strong red zone target worth rolling out there.
