Raiders TE Darren Waller (hamstring) is officially active for today’s game vs. the Patriots. He was designated to return from IR and practiced this week. NFL Network reported this morning that Waller will be a “full go” in this one. Consider him a low-end, risk/reward TE1 in his first action since Week 5.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (hamstring) and WR Hunter Renfrow (oblique) will be "full go" against the Patriots today, according to NFL Network. Both guys were designated to return from IR and returned to practice this week. Renfrow hasn't done enough in his 6 games this season to be an attractive fantasy play. Waller is worth considering as a lower-end TE1 with upside.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (hamstring) has been activated and is now eligible to play vs. the Patriots on Sunday. He's been out since Week 5 with a lingering hamstring injury. Waller averaged 6.0 targets, 4.0 catches, 44 yards and .3 TDs over the first 4 weeks of the season, ranking 12th among TEs in half-PPR points during that stretch. Consider him a low-end, risk/reward TE1 in Week 15 fantasy lineups.

The Raiders designated TE Darren Waller (hamstring) and WR Hunter Renfrow (oblique) to return from IR. Both guys will return to practice this week and are eligible to be activated for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. Waller averaged 6.0 targets, 4.0 catches, 44 yards and .3 TDs over the first 4 weeks of the season, ranking 12th among TEs in half-PPR points during that stretch. Renfrow has played in 6 games so far this season and averaged 4.8 targets, 3.5 catches, 32 yards and 0 TDs. His half-PPR scoring average in those games lands him 102nd among WRs. We wouldn't use Renfrow in Week 15 fantasy lineups. Waller will be a risk/reward, low-end TE1 if he plays this weekend.

Raiders TE Darren Waller has been placed on IR after aggravating his hamstring injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The team reportedly expects Waller to make it back when first eligible, but that's not until Week 14. He's a fine stash on fantasy rosters if you have room, but Waller is also cuttable if you're in a squeeze. His absence leaves Foster Moreau as Vegas' lead TE for at least the next 4 games vs. the Colts, Broncos, Seahawks and Chargers. He's posted strong route rates and averaged 6.3 targets, 3.7 catches and 34 yards in 3 games without Waller this season. Consider Moreau a low-end TE1.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is a bit more optimistic, labeling Waller a game-time decision. "He's as close as he's been," Rapoport tweeted. "The worry is that he aggravates it, so they'll be cautious. But he's got a chance." We'll get Vegas' inactives around 11:30 am ET. But, for now, we're removing Waller from the TE Rankings and moving TE Foster Moreau up.

Raiders TE Darren Waller (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Jaguars. He was in the same spot last week before missing the Saints game. We’ll get Vegas’ inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. Waller will be a risk/reward TE1 if active. If he's out again, TE Foster Moreau will be a viable low-end TE1.
