2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Raiders lost tight end Jared Cook in the offseason, who is coming off of career highs in targets (101), receptions (68), yards (896) and touchdowns (6). Cook's departure leaves a huge hole in the Oakland offense which will be extremely hard to fill by the team's current crop of tight ends.

The best option to step up, however, seems to be fifth-year tight end Darren Waller, who is heading into his second season with the Raiders. Waller didn't get on the field much this past season and he didn't produce much with the Ravens early in his career, but his athletic measurables are certainly something that should not be overlooked. At 6'6", 255 lbs, Waller ran a ridiculous 4.46 forty-yard dash at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine. That type of speed and size combination is almost completely unheard of.

Of course, his athleticism hasn't translated to much at all on the field, but both head coach Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock have been raving about Waller this offseason, with Mayock even comparing him to one of this season's top rookie tight end prospects, Noah Fant.

The Raiders did draft another tight end, Foster Moreau, who will likely see some work at some point this season, but all signs point to Waller being the tight end to own if there is one in Oakland. Still, don't expect Waller and Moreau to even combine for the type of production that Cook put up in 2018. Neither player is worth drafting in anything other than deep tight end premium leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Jimmy Graham, Darren Waller ailing
Ankle and foot injuries, respectively
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 17, 7:30 pm

Green Bay Packers
As if the receiving corps for these two teams wasn’t in bad enough shape, their top tight ends are also banged up. Packers tight end Jimmy Graham has not practiced this week and Thursday Raiders newly extended tight end Darren Waller injured his foot, adding him to the injury report as well. (Silver & Black Pride)

FFToday's Take: It's almost comical how banged up Green Bay and Oakland are at receiver ahead of their Week 7 matchup, so neither team needs its starting tight end to be hurting as well. Graham has had a limited impact for most of the season, but Waller's injury is a new one after getting in a full practice Wednesday. Foster Moreau could be in line for a big role this week if Waller is out, but the Raiders have yet to express any concern their breakout tight end will need to sit.

Oakland Raiders

FFToday's Take: The Raiders are now incredibly thin at wide receiver with Hunter Renfrow, Keelan Doss likely to see the most work at receiver. Tight end Darren Waller could lead the team in targets.
