Darren Waller 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Darren Waller has undoubtedly cemented his spot as an elite tight end in the NFL, exceeding 100 targets and 1,100 receiving yards in each of the last two seasons while amassing 197 receptions and 12 touchdowns for the Las Vegas Raiders. His combination of size, speed, and athleticism makes him a threat from anywhere on the field, especially in the red zone where he saw 31.1% of his team’s targets last season.

Waller’s expansive role in the offense is certainly not expected to change this season, even with the offseason additions of John Brown and Willie Snead to the receiving corps. He’s clearly established himself as Derek Carr‘s top weapon, garnering nearly twice as many targets as anyone else on the roster last year. Waller has also been able to stay on the field, playing every game in each of the past two seasons.

Between his volume and red-zone presence, Waller is set to remain one of the NFL’s most productive tight ends next year. Without a true WR1 to worry about, he’s still the Raiders’ top receiving threat and should post monster numbers again in 2021. Assuming he stays healthy, you can bank on him finishing with around 100 receptions, 1,100-1,200 receiving yards, and close to double-digit touchdowns.


Darren Waller 2021 Fantasy Football Draft Value (PPR)

After finishing last season as the second-best tight end in fantasy behind Travis Kelce, Waller is a strong top-3 option at the position with Kelce and George Kittle. He’s being valued as such in fantasy drafts this year, going in the early third round as the second tight end off the board after Kelce. At a volatile position with few reliable performers, Waller’s durability and top-end production are worth the investment.
