Even a broken clock is right two times a day, and even a healthy Darren Waller will deal with hamstring injuries on what feels like at least two separate occasions in a season. Things had been playing out all too well for the Giants tight end, who had amassed 20 catches on 26 targets for 227 yards and a touchdown over the past three weeks. Evidently, the fantasy gods felt they were too generous with allowing such satisfactory fantasy production from Waller, and have once again struck him down via his hamstring. Waller was just about the last legitimate weapon the Giants had in their passing attack, and bearing in mind his track record with hamstring injuries, fantasy managers should be prepared to be without Waller for at least a few weeks. If the Giants aren’t in a position to contend by the time he returns, Waller may slow-roll his recovery and miss even more time. With a wider target distribution, WRs Darius Slayton, Jalin Hyatt, and Wan’Dale Robinson could all see a few more targets per game - but nothing concentrated enough to make any of them a worthwhile start in lineups.
