The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have one of the most imposing defenses in the NFL. When they face the Raiders this week, it’ll be incredibly interesting to see what Jon Gruden and the Raiders offense can accomplish against them. Darren Waller is a vital part of keeping the chains moving and Derek Carr comfortable, so what should you do with him in fantasy?

Fantasy Football analysis: Raiders TE Darren Waller

In all but one of the Raiders games so far this year, Waller has been targeted more than seven times. His production in most games has been solid and against the Bucs he should be a safety blanket for Carr. You’re taking a slight risk playing anyone against this defense, but Waller should be a safe bet for safe production considering volume. Carr likes him in tight spots and there are sure to be plenty this week.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Waller.
