Las Vegas Raiders: Darren Waller Waller is a great story, but don't count on him repeating as among the league-leaders in target share at his position (which still resulted in just three scores thanks to a lack of red-zone work).

Tight end Rob Gronkowski has had to do more than reacclimate himself to the grind of playing football this summer. Gronkowski only played for one head coach in New England, so moving to Tampa has also meant getting used to life with a new head coach for the first time in a long time.

Instead the Black and Gold lost in five games to the Tampa Bay Lightning for the second time in three years, and had the same problems generating 5-on-5 offense and holding back a deep, fast and young Lightning group of forwards.
