5 most underrated Las Vegas Raiders heading into 2020
During the 2019 NFL season, Darren Waller emerged as one of the premier tight ends in football, hauling in 90 catches, and racking up over 1,000 receiving yards. Waller overcame a ton to become an NFL star, and now that he is a focal part of the Raiders offense, you can expect him to continue to be a big-time player for years to come.
This offseason, the Raiders added veteran Jason Witten to the mix at tight end, bringing in a future Hall of Famer to be a locker room guy, and a red one presence. In addition to Witten and Waller, the Raiders also have another solid tight end that can get overlooked, and that is 2019 draft pick Foster Moreau.
A product of LSU, Moreau proved he had a knack to get things done in the red zone, and actually finished second to only Williams in terms of touchdown receptions. Moreau hauled in five touchdowns as a rookie despite seeing his season end due to injury, and I expect him to once again be a Derek Carr favorite in the red zone.
Moreau is healthy entering Year No. 2, and is a bit overlooked due to Witten and Waller. However, Carr won’t be overlooking him, as he earned his trust last season, and could have another five touchdown season in 2020.
