2. TE Darren Waller
When the Giants acquired Darren Waller this offseason, it was evident New York was building their passing game through the tight end, similarly to how Mike Kafka's mentor Andy Reid's offense is run. The only concern around Waller entering the season was injuries, and unfortunately, that concern had validity.
Over the past two seasons, Waller was only able to play in 20 games for the Raiders. Waller has been banged up with various injuries throughout training camp and the regular season this year, but none caused him to miss any game action until Sunday. Waller re-aggravated a hamstring injury that had him on the injury report leading up to the MetLife Bowl in the first half and missed the rest of the game.
Just one week prior, the Giants offense clicked in the first half against Washington, and that's because New York made it a priority to get him the football.
Without Waller, the Giants passing game was non-existent. Waller had one catch for four yards and was somehow tied with Matt Breida for most receiving yards Sunday. If Waller were healthy against the Jets, things could have been way different. Due to his injury history, fans are now worried about the star TE moving forward.
