Darren Waller In "Early Phases" Of Rehab

Wednesday, November 15, 12:09 PM

New York Giants tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) said he's working on re-strengthening his hamstring and is "still kinda in the early phases." Waller said he's fine while jogging, but hitting top speed and hard cutting is something he'll blend in over the next couple of weeks. The 31-year-old is only required to miss two more games while on Injured Reserve, but at the current rate he's healing, it seems unlikely that he'll be ready to return to the field when he's eligible to come off IR. Fantasy managers must be patient and keep him stashed in an IR spot or on their benches for now. Daniel Bellinger, who caught two passes for 34 yards in the Week 10 blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys, will move forward as the starting tight end for the G-Men, but he's nothing more than a low-end TE2 in fantasy with rookie quarterback Tommy Devito running this offense.

Noah Fant Not Startable In Week 13

Thursday, November 30, 3:01 AM

Seattle Seahawks tight end Noah Fant caught two passes for 25 yards in Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers. He was targeted just twice on Thanksgiving bringing his grand total on the season to 24. That amount leads Seattle's routinely circulating group of tight ends but it means little in terms of fantasy promise. Fant usually leads the group in snaps, too, though when he is on the field he splits his time between run blocking and running routes almost evenly. Next up for the Seahawks is another Thursday night game, this time against the Dallas Cowboys. Even with six teams on bye, almost any other tight end on the waiver wire would make for a better streaming candidate than Fant in Week 13.
