Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: Walker jumped right back into the offense in Week 1 after missing most of the 2018 season and posted two touchdowns. He should be a reliable starting fantasy option most weeks.
Tennessee Titans LB Reggie Gilbert (knee) and OL Kevin Pamphile (knee) were unable to practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 2 versus the Indianapolis Colts. RB David Fluellen (hamstring) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Sept. 13, but is listed as questionable. DT Jurrell Casey (hip) was limited Friday, while TE Delanie Walker (non-injury) and DE Cameron Wake (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday; all three no longer appear on the injury report.
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker can be counted on as a TE1 play in a favorable Week 2 matchup with the Indianapolis Colts. Walker didn't take much time to return to form after missing the entirety of the 2018 season, catching five of six targets for 55 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1. Walker led all Titans in targets against the Browns, and he is a solid bet to continue to do so going forward. Look for quarterback Marcus Mariota to look for Walker early and often as the Titans offense tries to remain hot coming off of a 43-point performance.
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 12.
Fantasy Spin: Walker missed most of last season because of an injury but was a big part of the passing game in Week 1 and should continue to receive plenty of targets during games. He can be a reliable No. 1 tight end most weeks.
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 11.
Fantasy Spin: Walker is coming off a two-touchdown performance in Week 1 and probably was receiving a rest day Wednesday. He should be considered a weekly starting option in most fantasy leagues.
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker looked like he hadn't lost a step in his first regular season action since Week 1 of 2018. Walker posted five receptions on a team-high six targets for 55 yards and two touchdowns in the team's Week 1 win against the Cleveland Browns. Walker will continue to be a major factor in the passing game, which appears to be much-improved this season. Continue to treat Walker as a TE1 in all formats this season.
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker has averaged 71.2 receptions and 831.2 receiving yards in the three full seasons he has played with QB Marcus Mariota.
Fantasy Spin: Walker missed almost all of the 2018 season, but when he is on the field, there is no one Mariota is more comfortable throwing the ball to. Walker may not be as explosive as he once was, but he's still a solid bet for low-end TE1 production as Mariota's safety valve.
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker will be making his first regular season start since Week 1 of 2018 this week as the Titans travel to Cleveland to face the Browns. Walker looked like his old self in limited action this preseason, giving little reason to doubt that he will still be able to produce low-end TE1 numbers this season. Expect quarterback Marcus Mariota to lean on Walker as his security blanket against the Browns talented pass rush. Walker is a solid bet to be second on the team in targets this week, giving him a high enough floor to be counted on at a position of high volatility.
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker only played two drives in his first action since Week 1 of the 2018 season, but that was enough for him to catch two passes for 26 yards and a touchdown. It seems Walker and quarterback Marcus Mariota are picking up right where they left off prior to Walker's season-ending injury. Walker remains a solid late-round value pick at tight end, but expect his ADP to start to creep up as we get closer to fantasy draft season.
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker caught both of his targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in a 22-17 preseason loss to the New England Patriots Saturday, Aug. 17.
Fantasy Spin: Walker missed all but one game last year, and while his best days are behind him, he has always been one of Marcus Mariota's favorite targets. Walker is still worth a look as a low-end TE1.
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker participated in team drills against the New England Patriots on Thursday as he continues to work his way back from the injury he sustained in Week 1 of the 2018 regular season. Walker received praise from both coaches and reporters following his play on Thursday, with Titans senior writer Jim Wyatt stating that "He's looking like his old self." Walker continues to be an excellent late-round value pick at TE for any owner who misses out on the elite tier of tight ends early in the draft. He delivered 807 yards and three touchdowns in his last full season.
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) said Thursday, Aug. 13, he expects to play against the New England Patriots in his team's second preseason game.
Fantasy Spin: Walker has slipped down the fantasy ranks this year and is a low-end TE1. WRs Corey Davis, Taywan Taylor and Adam Humphries figure to lead the pass-catching corps, with second-round pick WR A.J. Brown a high-upside option. The Titans will also continue to be extremely run-focused with RBs Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis.
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker spent the majority of the first week of training camp working off to the side individually during the team portion of practices. Despite participating in team drills on Friday, Walker admitted that he was still "a few weeks away" from being back to his old self. This news is expected for the veteran tight end who missed all of last season with an ankle injury. Expect Walker to sit out all of the preseason for the Titans in order to prepare for a Week 1 return to action. Despite his age and the added arsenal of weapons in the passing game, Walker still has the talent and opportunity to return low-end TE1 production in 2019 and is a bargain selection in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, in the opinion of Titans Online's Jim Wyatt. Tight end Jonnu Smith (knee), whose season ended in Week 14, isn't a lock to be ready after having missed all of the offseason workouts. Walker could be on the Physically Unable to Perform list during training camp, but the veteran should be ready for Week 1. The 34-year-old is more of a risk now than ever as a TE1, but he could come at a nice value later in drafts if he can stay healthy. After all, he has had at least 800 receiving yards since 2014 if you take out last year's injury.
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) is expected to be ready for Week 1, according to Jim Wyatt of the team's website.
Fantasy Spin: Walker recently stated he wasn't sure if he would begin camp of the Physically Unable to Perform list, but he was optimistic he would be ready for the season opener. The Titans have little reason to rush the 35-year-old, who has been Marcus Mariota's favorite target since the latter entered the league. If he can return to form, it should come as no surprise if Walker has at least one more low-end TE1 season left in him.
Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) isn't sure whether he will begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list or not, telling The MMQB that he'll 'leave it up to the coaches.' Walker did return to the field during organized team activities and felt good about his progress, according to The MMQB.
Fantasy Spin: While Walker's recovery - or at least his return to full-scale workouts - has taken longer than expected, it doesn't sound like he's in any real danger of missing games, although the Titans may choose to ease him into camp and preseason action. Assuming he is 100 percent by some point next month, he's a fine TE1 choice who should come at a discounted price.
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) should be a full participant at the start of training camp, in the opinion PaulKuharsky.com's Paul Kuharsky.
Fantasy Spin: Walker missed a majority of the 2018 season because of the injury but has had a lot of time to rehab his ankle. He should have a solid role in the passing game if he is healthy and can be a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.
Tennessee Titans TEs Delanie Walker (ankle) and Jonnu Smith (knee) were not at mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 11.
Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker (ankle) took part in 7-on-7 drills at organized team activities while he works his way back from a season-ending ankle injury last season. He was injured in the season opener in 2018 and managed four catches for 52 yards before his season ended. Walker, going into his age-35 campaign, had 100-plus targets each of the previous four seasons and has been a strong TE1 option for fantasy owners in the past. He still could be good in 2019, but make sure not to overvalue him coming off a serious injury in a run-first offense.
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) was able to participate in 7-on-7 drills during practice Thursday, May 30.
Fantasy Spin: Coming off an injury, the veteran tight end isn't likely to provide a lot of explosive plays at this stage in his career. However, he has always been one of Marcus Mariota's favorite targets, and he could still provide low-end TE1 production as Mariota's safety valve.
