Delanie Walker caught four passes for 35 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.
The catches were Walker's first of the preseason. Ken Whisenhunt's offense is tight-end friendly, but the ceiling here isn't terribly high as Jake Locker executes a game-manager role. Walker will be a blocker/security blanket and would do well to net 60 catches. Aug 23 - 11:02 PM

The Nashville Tennessean believes "all signs point to a big year" from TE Delanie Walker.

Walker has been working on his blocking this offseason in an attempt to stay on the field on running downs. He's coming off a career year and has potential to see his targets increase in Ken Whisenhunt's tight-end friendly offense. Walker posted a breakout 60/571/6 line in 2013. The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt projects Walker to "be in the 60-catch neighborhood" again this season.

Delanie Walker said he's "looking to catch 80 balls this year."

Walker had a career year last season, posting a 60-571-6 line and finishing as fantasy's No. 11 tight end. Enter tight end-friendly coach Ken Whisenhunt, who compared Walker to Antonio Gates when he got the Titans' job. OC Jason Michael is also a former TEs coach. Catching 80 passes is setting his sights extremely high, but Walker has a chance to be a major part of the offense. Walker is going undrafted in most standard 12-team leagues at the moment.

New Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt compared Delanie Walker to Antonio Gates.

Walker is going to have a chance to be a major part of the scheme. Whisenhunt and offensive coordinator Jason Michael are both former tight ends coaches who have hinted at using a lot of "12" personnel. Walker's career-best 60/571/6 line from last year will be within reach again. "Working with Antonio Gates got me excited about the position, and I think there's a lot of elements to what Delanie does that are similar in that capacity," Whiz said.

Delanie Walker caught three passes for 29 yards in Week 17 against the Texans.

In his first season with the Titans, Walker set new career-highs across the board with 60 catches for 571 yards and six touchdowns. Walker particularly excelled with popgun-armed Ryan Fitzpatrick under center. Walker signed a four-year deal with the Titans in March and will be back with the team in 2014. Fantasy-wise, he's really nothing more than a mid-range TE2 option most weeks.

Delanie Walker had four catches for 35 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Jaguars.

Walker's biggest play was an 11-yard catch on fourth-and-three in the second quarter. He could have had a bigger game, but was overthrown by Ryan Fitzpatrick in the end-zone on his only red-zone target. Walker has been a solid addition to the Titans after signing a four-year deal this offseason. He'll take on the Texans in Week 17.

Delanie Walker racked up eight catches for 53 yards and a touchdown in Tennessee's Week 15 defeat.

Walker capitalized on his cupcake matchup with a Cardinals defense allowing the most receptions, yards, and touchdowns in the league to tight ends. Walker's six TDs on the year are the most by a Titans tight end since Frank Wycheck caught six in 1996. The Jaguars give up the second most fantasy points to tight ends, and the Titans play them next.

Delanie Walker is active for Week 15 against the Cardinals.

He's been cleared from his concussion and is all systems go.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 03:13:00 PM

Delanie Walker (concussion) is listed as probable for Week 15.

Walker is a worthwhile back-end TE1 against the Cardinals' defense.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 02:16:00 PM

Delanie Walker (concussion) remained "full" in Thursday's practice.

Barring a setback, Walker is ready to roll as a TE1 against a Cardinals defense allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends.

Delanie Walker (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday.

Walker sat out practice each day last week before being inactive against the Broncos. He's on track to suit up in a dream matchup against the Cardinals. In Weeks 10-12, Walker averaged 6.3 catches for 66.3 yards and scored two touchdowns. With popgun-armed Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm for Tennessee, Walker should draw plenty of targets in the short-to-intermediate passing game. Walker will be on the TE1 radar and is a nice option for Rob Gronkowski owners.

Titans TE Delanie Walker will undergo his final concussion test Tuesday.

If Walker passes, he'll be cleared for Week 15 against the Cardinals. Coach Mike Munchak expressed optimism Monday that Walker "should play Sunday." Walker is a worthwhile pickup for Rob Gronkowski's fantasy owners.

Delanie Walker (concussion) is inactive for Sunday's Week 14 game at Denver, as expected.

Walker was unable to get cleared following his Week 13 concussion, leaving the Titans tight end spot in the hands of Craig Stevens, Taylor Thompson and Visanthe Shiancoe. They've also finally decided to make Kenny Britt inactive, instead rolling with practice squad callup Michael Preston. The rest of their inactives: QB John Skelton, WR Damian Williams, DB Micah Pellerin, T Byron Stingily and DE LaVar Edwards.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 02:40:00 PM

The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt expects Delanie Walker (questionable, concussion) to be inactive Sunday at Denver.

Wyatt is one of the most reliable beat reports in the nation, and wouldn't say this without good info either based on sources or observations from the stadium. Look for the Titans to turn to some combination of blocker Craig Stevens, raw Taylor Thompson, and street free agent Visanthe Shiancoe at tight end.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 12:22:00 PM

Delanie Walker (concussion, questionable) was held out of practice for the third straight day Friday.

The good news is Walker hasn't been ruled out, yet. The bad news is he hasn't even been cleared to practice. Our guess as of Friday is Walker won't play against the Broncos, but the Titans will "reevaluate" him on Saturday.
