Darren Waller Notches Another Dreadful Performance In Week 4

Tuesday, October 3, 12:30 AM

New York Giants tight end Darren Waller caught all three of his targets for just 21 yards in the team's blowout loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. Two of Waller's receptions came on the second-to-last drive for Big Blue. The Giants' offense, once again, sputtered in the primetime lights. Quarterback Daniel Jones was sacked 11 times, threw two interceptions, and lost a fumble. It's getting harder for fantasy managers to trust Waller. However, given the state of the tight end position, there aren't many high-upside options on waiver wires better than the ex-Raider. Waller and the Giants will try and kickstart their offense in Miami in Week 5.

Cole Kmet Catches Two Touchdowns In Week 4

Sunday, October 1, 9:47 PM

Chicago Bears tight end Cole Kmet did everything he could during Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. The young tight end hauled in seven of his nine targets for 85 yards and scored two touchdowns in the loss. Kmet was tied with D.J. Moore for a team-high nine targets on the day. The Bears were able to find Kmet wide open for a few receptions early in the game. He has at least five receptions in three of the first four games this season. He should remain a viable option in fantasy leagues heading into the Week 5 matchup against the Washington Commanders.
