Huddle Up: Waller, who will turn 30 next Tuesday, missed much of training camp due to a hamstring injury but is expected to play in Week 1's game versus the Los Angeles Chargers. He is an elite TE1 option and should be started in all fantasy formats.

Huddle Up: Waller made it clear to Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal that his hamstring injury was not a negotiating ploy. He returned to practice last week and obviously feels comfortable enough with his hamstring to play a full complement of snaps. While Davante Adams will cap the monstrous fantasy upside Waller has enjoyed over the past couple of years, the ex-Green Bay Packer should also free him up to do more damage in the red zone. Fantasy managers should confidently consider Waller a top-five option.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller reportedly is in discussions with the team about a contract extension that would make him the highest-paid player at his position in terms of the new money average per year at $16 million, according to CBS Sports HQ's Josina Anderson. Waller is in the process of changing his representation, which could be holding up the deal getting done.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller (hamstring) is not drawing concern from head coach Josh McDaniels despite being absent for much of training camp with a hamstring issue. McDaniels wouldn't say if Waller would be ready for Week 1, though. "I am not concerned," said McDaniels on Wednesday, Aug. 24. "He's doing everything he can to get out there as soon as he can be. I don't want to make a prediction on whether he will or won't be ready here in a few weeks, but I see him every day. He's in every meeting, he's doing everything he can to get out there as fast as possible. We don't have that many guys that are in that boat right now. Darren's certainly one of them. [He's] working his butt off. He knows that he's going to be a big part of this team and what we want to do and he's right there. And like I said he's in meetings. But I'm not concerned about it."

Huddle Up: Waller missed a ton of training camp with a hamstring injury, returned for one day, and then was absent again, so this situation bears monitoring. Assuming he's healthy, Waller will be an elite TE1 in 2022.

Las Vegas Raiders TE Darren Waller says the team has a plan for him in the red zone, which is different than in years past. "There was a lot of times in the last couple years where I felt like there wasn't a clear defined attack in the red zone or like a plan for me specifically," Waller said. "Now I kind of feel like that's something that's in place with [head coach] Josh [McDaniels]."

Huddle Up: Waller tallied nine touchdowns in 2020, but sandwiched around that were campaigns that saw him total three in 2019 and two in 2021, although he missed six games in the latter season. That said, one of the best tight ends in fantasy getting more red zone looks is a good thing. Waller is an elite TE1 and should be one of the first off the board at his position in re-draft leagues.
