Darren Waller Snags Five Passes In Season Finale

Sunday, January 7, 9:08 PM

New York Giants tight end Darren Waller caught five of his six targets for 45 yards in the team's Week 18 upset victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. His stat line was a microcosm for his 2023 campaign. Despite being the prized offseason addition for the G-Men, Waller rarely boomed for fantasy football. He was often just average, even in rare games when the Giants' passing offense was humming. The veteran did not post back-to-back double-digit PPR fantasy points games at all this season. Waller finishes the season with 52 catches for 552 yards and just one touchdown.

Evan Engram Has 10 Catches In Loss

Sunday, January 7, 7:46 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Evan Engram caught 10 of his 13 targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's meeting with the Titans. With the loss, the Jaguars were eliminated from postseason contention. However, Engram put forth his best effort, so he can't shoulder much of the blame. Overall, the 29-year-old arguably had the best season of his career. He caught 114 passes, doing so despite the subpar play of Trevor Lawrence. Engram also nearly hit the 1,000-yard receiving mark and found the end zone four times. That said, his stock will be much higher than most at the position ahead of the 2024-25 campaign. If Lawrence can get his act together, Engram could be in line for his best year in the league.
