Update — Waller caught three more passes and finished with 13 receptions for 200 yards and two scores in the Raiders’ 31-28 win.
Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller has been one of the best tight ends in the NFL all season and is having his best game of the year against the New York Jets. Derek Carr’s top target has hauled in 10 passes for 151 yards and two scores against the winless Jets through three quarters and some change. The Raiders hold a 24-13 lead heading in the final frame, so there’s a chance Waller could pad his stats more before the final whistle.
The Kansas City Chiefs’ Travis Kelce is the only tight end in the NFL with more targets, receptions, and receiving yards than Waller. Wallers ranks second in all three categories and remains the top pass catcher in Las Vegas.
