Darren Waller, New York Giants

Darren Waller's first season in New York has been a disappointment as injuries have limited the one-time star tight end to just 10 games and 42 catches this season. As a result of that, fed up managers may have dropped him in your league long ago.

His Week 16 performance — two catches for 32 yards — won't entice many people to rush to grab him off the waiver wire. But those managers also didn't just lose Hockenson. If that is you, Waller could provide for an excellent one-game option when the Giants face the Los Angeles Rams.

This could be a great matchup for Waller as Tyrod Taylor could be in line to start at QB for the Giants over Tommy DeVito, which would benefit but also because the Rams have allowed eight touchdown receptions to tight ends this season, the second-most in the NFL.
