3 Las Vegas Raiders who must step up if Josh Jacobs is out tonight
Darren Waller, Tight End
Darren Waller is the key to any Raiders victory, as the top receiver in the offense, and also the top overall piece in general. In this one, the tight end will be heavily depended on as soon as the Raiders offense takes the field.
With Jacobs out, this narrative may become even heavier for the Pro Bowl tight end. Waller will be on the field for nearly every snap, if not all of them, and for the Raiders to combat any chance of losing Jacobs, Waller has to be the main component in any orchestrated Raiders victory.
He may face some double teams, and more than likely not just ‘some.’
The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night football, and here are the odds, injuries, and live stream info heading into Week 1.
Waller will be looked upon from start to finish by quarterback Derek Carr, so expect to see his number called on nearly every other down. Waller with his speed and ability to take hits is more than capable of stepping up and proving just why he was recently named a captain.
