The New York Giants should have star tight end Darren Waller in the lineup in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills despite a groin injury. 

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that Waller is expected to play after being limited in practice this week. 

Here’s the latest on Waller and how to bet on him in the prop market in this game:

Best Darren Waller prop bet for Week 6 game vs. Bills

Darren Waller OVER 39.5 receiving yards

This is a relatively low prop number for Waller, who is coming off his best game of the season against the Miami Dolphins. 

Waller had eight catches for 86 yards in that blowout loss, and we could be looking at a similar game script for the Giants in Week 6 against Buffalo. 

Waller has only cleared this line in two games this season, but the Giants may look to get him more involved with Daniel Jones out and Tyrod Taylor at quarterback. At under 40 yards, Waller is worth a shot in the prop market tonight.
