The 2019 NFL season is just 1 week old and time is running out to start picking up people from your fantasy football waiver wire. Every year a no name blows up in Week 1 and ends up being a top-20 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire tight ends for Week 2.
Darren Waller, TE, Oakland Raiders
No pass catcher in Oakland benefited more than Waller with the departure of Antonio Brown to the New England Patriots. The youngster hauled in 7 receptions for 70 receiving yards in the Raiders Week 1 victory over the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
The future is bright for the converted wide receiver turned tight end and he looks to be a focal point of the offense moving forward. The Raiders used his size and quickness to create mismatches on the outside in Week 1 and it was an instant rapport among quarterback Derek Carr and Waller.
The Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2 and with this game expected to be high-scoring look for Waller to have another 6-7 receptions and flirt with double digit targets. While it’s been just one game, Waller has emerged as a TE1 option in 10-team, 12-team & 14-team leagues and is a must add across all scoring formats. — Marc Caviglia
