Darren Waller has put together back-to-back outstanding seasons. His breakout came in 2019 when he caught 90 passes for 1,146 yards and three touchdowns. He improved on those numbers in 2020 with 107 catches for 1,195 yards and nine touchdowns. Waller finished the season as the TE2 behind only Travis Kelce. He was a massive fantasy difference-maker considering the gaping gap between him and the TE3. In fact, aside from Kelce, Waller scored over 100 fantasy points (PPR) more than any tight end. The 28-year old has now established himself as one of the game's elite tight ends. His blend of size and incredible speed (4.46-second forty yard dash at the NFL Combine) makes him an impossible matchup for opposing defenses. As the clear go-to target in the Raiders passing offense, Waller is poised for another excellent season and profiles as one of the few true fantasy difference-makers at the tight end position.
