If you’ve got Darren Waller on your fantasy team, breathe easy … the tight end tells TMZ Sports he’s DEFINITELY playing Sunday — even though he’s popped up on Las Vegas’ injury report.
According to the Raiders, Waller did NOT practice on either Wednesday or Thursday with a knee issue … and it’s got A LOT of people concerned.
After all, Waller was a BEAST this past Monday … helping fantasy players win their games with his 12-catch, 105-yard, 1-TD performance against the Saints.
But, Darren told us this week there’s no need to run out and get another TE to replace him … ’cause he says despite the practice DNPs — he’ll be ready for the Patriots this weekend.
“Everything’s fine,” Waller said. “Everything’s fine. I will be playing on Sunday.”
By the way, Darren ain’t just giving back to your fantasy team with his talents … he’s also hosting a fundraiser next week for a great cause.
Waller — whose struggles with sobriety have been well-documented — is gunning to raise money to help youth avoid battles with drug and alcohol addiction.
Awesome move by an awesome player. Props.
