Darren Waller, New York Giants

Heading into your fantasy draft this year, there were very few "sure things" at the tight end position. There was Travis Kelce and Mark Andrews. Then there was Darren Waller, who many owners selected with confidence.

It is an absolute mess in New York and that was on full display when the Giants took on the Seattle Seahawks this past Monday night, but if one player needs to become a force in their passing game, it has to be Waller.

He has caught more than three passes in just one game thus far this season and has just 153 yards receiving with no touchdowns. That is not going to get it done but similar in the case of Burrow, his name (and the lack of options at the position) make him a tough guy to put on your bench.

But if he puts up another dud this week against the Miami Dolphins, guys like Cole Kmet, Zach Ertz and Logan Thomas are all going to be more consistent and reliable options than the floundering Waller.
