Fantasy Analysis
Season Projections
Signed off the Ravens' practice squad in late November of this past season, Waller is Raiders head coach Jon Gruden's new project. The rarely-used converted wideout apparently impressed Gruden with his unique mix of size, 4.46 speed and freakish athletic ability in very limited action during four late-season appearances. With Jared Cook (Saints) gone, Waller will enter training camp penciled in atop Oakland's tight end depth chart, but the Raiders insist that he'll have to earn the top job. His competition - Luke Willson, Derek Carrier, rookie fourth-round selection Foster Moreau and Erik Swoope - will push Waller. Gruden probably will keep talking up the fifth-year pro through the preseason, but keep in mind that Waller has compiled just 18 career receptions in 22 contests played. If Waller wins the starting gig, there are no guarantees that he can do the job. Waller would be the third option at best in the Raiders' passing attack behind featured target hog Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams. While Waller has intriguing late-round sleeper value - monitor his progress during the preseason - he also comes with a very low floor.

Rushing: 13 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 44 Receptions, 593 Yards, 3 TD.
