Darren Waller A Safe Tight End Option In Week 3

Wednesday, September 20, 9:33 PM

New York Giants tight end Darren Waller is a top-five option at the tight end position in Week 3, despite a tough matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. The Giants' offense will have to lean on their veteran due to the absence of running back Saquon Barkley (ankle). Through two games, the ex-Raider has caught nine of 13 targets for 112 yards but is still searching for the endzone. That's tied for TE4 in PPR formats heading into Week 3. The 49ers have been solid everywhere on the defensive of the ball so far this season. Expect a solid, but maybe not spectacular, stat line from Waller on Thursday Night Football.
