Darren Waller Hopes To Return Next Week

Wednesday, December 6, 3:14 PM

New York Giants tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) said he's been running routes and that his hamstring is feeling good. He expects to return to practice next week and is hoping he can play against the New Orleans Saints in Week 15 if all goes well in his return to the field. Waller has been hurt by a nagging hamstring injury in his first year in the Big Apple and was put on Injured Reserve after aggravating his hammy in Week 8. Although quarterback Daniel Jones (knee) is done for the year, Waller still has a shot to return to help fantasy managers in the playoffs as a big-bodied target for either rookie quarterback Tommy Devito or Tyrod Taylor down the stretch. Daniel Bellinger has had a bigger role with Waller sidelined, but he hasn't made a fantasy impact at all. Pick Waller up now if he's available on your league's waiver wire.

Kyle Pitts News

Kyle Pitts Totals 51 Yards

Sunday, December 3, 7:57 PM

Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts was probably the only player on this offense to have success on Sunday. The young tight end hauled in four of his eight targets for 51 yards in the win over the New York Jets. The Falcons recently said that Pitts was an important piece of this offense despite his lack of success. It looks like they attempted to get him the ball more this week and it worked out. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect a 50-yard performance on a weekly basis. Pitts should remain in the TE2 conversation for next week's matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
