News: 2 days agoRaiders interim coach Rich Bisaccia labeled Waller (knee/back) as day-to-day Monday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Spin: The day-to-day label is a notable change for Waller, whom Bisaccia characterized as week-to-week with the pair of injuries when he met with the media seven days ago. Waller ultimately sat out Sunday's 17-15 loss to Washington after failing to practice last week, but he looks like he'll have a chance at making it back to the lineup for the Raiders' Week 14 game in Kansas City. Waller's availability against the Chiefs likely will hinge on what he's able to do on the practice field Wednesday through Friday.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Waller burst onto the fantasy scene with an impressive third-place showing in 2019. Instead of returning to earth in 2020, he added 60 points to his total. His 11 top-10 fantasy weeks trailed only Travis Kelce (14) and were three more than the next-closest TE. Waller improved in every key fantasy category, but the biggest boost was in the TD department. After scoring three times in 2019 (3.7 OTD), he jumped to nine last season (7.8 OTD). Waller has finished no lower than fifth at TE in snaps, routes, targets, receptions and yardage each of the past two seasons. He'll be in the same system (Jon Gruden) with the same QB (Derek Carr) and with another unproven WR room. The 28-year-old is a top-three fantasy TE.
