2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
A lack of deep pass attempts certainly did benefit the Raiders wide receivers in 2019, but there's no question that it helped tight end Darren Waller. Waller broke out in a huge way, becoming one of fantasy football's most valued assets as he caught 90 passes for 1,145 yards. He was unlucky in that he scored just three touchdowns despite all those catches and yards, but he still finished as the No. 4 fantasy football tight end. He was one of the few true difference makers at the position and helped propel fantasy owners to championships by producing three 100-yard performances in his final five regular season games.

A relatively unknown player heading into 2019, Waller now finds himself being drafted among the top five players at the tight end position and many view him as sort of the break-off point from the "elite" tight ends to the players we have questions about. Certainly Waller himself is not without concern as he essentially broke out completely out of nowhere after three NFL seasons where he essentially did nothing and a less-than-spectacular collegiate resume. However, Waller is a rare athlete at the position at 6'6", 255 lbs with sub-4.5 forty speed. That type of player just does not come along very often and with his off-field issues appearing to be a thing of the past, there's a real chance that we might be looking at one of the best tight ends in the NFL today and a player who could help win fantasy championships again this season.

While he may regress slightly in total targets given the added weapons in the Raiders' offense, look for Waller to again lead the Raiders in targets, receptions and receiving yards again this season. A slight dip in targets and even yards could be offset, however, by added production in the touchdown column. He could double or even nearly triple his 2019 touchdown total here this season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Henry Ruggs III considered a "longshot" to play in Week 4
Explosive Raiders rookie dealing with balky hamstring
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Wed Sep 30, 11:10 am

Las Vegas Raiders
Ian Rapoport(@RapSheet) on Twitter: "Meanwhile, #Raiders rookie WR Henry Ruggs III is considered a long-shot to play Sunday while still dealing with a hamstring injury, source said. The 1st-round pick shouldn’t have an extended absence, but especially with speed guys, you’d like to get as close to 100% as possible." (Twitter/NFL Network)

FFToday's Take: Rookie WR WR Bryan Edwards is already listed out this week (could be more) vs. the Bills as he battles an ankle sprain, so we're left to give Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller a target boost in our projections.


Injury Josh Jacobs, Darren Waller not at practice Thursday
Duo has missed first two practices of the week

No sign of Josh Jacobs, Darren Waller ... at start of Raiders practice today. (ESPN - Paul Gutierrez)

FFToday's Take: Jacobs is dealing with a hip issue, while Waller is nursing a knee injury. Back-to-back missed practices are never a great sign, but both players finished Week 2 and did not appear to be limited outside of Jacobs spending a bit of time on the sideline getting something checked out in the second half. Expect both players to suit up against New England in Week 3 unless they sit out practice again on Friday.


Injury Tyrell Williams lands on IR with torn labrum
Expected to have surgery
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Sep 1, 4:54 pm

Las Vegas Raiders
The #Raiders put WR Tyrell Williams on Injured Reserve, as he is having surgery in a few weeks for a torn labrum in his shoulder. His season is over. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Williams was hopeful of playing this season with the injury but has since decided on surgery. It's fair to wonder how much playing time he would've received given the Raiders are high on rookies Henry Ruggs III and Bryan Edwards. Both, along with TE Darren Waller and slot man Hunter Renfrow should be the top targets for Derek Carr.
