Delanie Walker was the Offensive MVP and Von Miller the Defensive MVP as the AFC downed the NFC 24-23 in Sunday's Pro Bowl game.
We haven't watched the Pro Bowl game in years, but it's meaningful for the players involved. Winners get $64,000 and players on the losing team settle for $32,000 checks. Walker earned Offensive MVP honors by catching two touchdowns, and Miller logged a fumble recovery and a sack. The best news is nobody got hurt. In the January 2016 Pro Bowl, Tyler Eifert suffered an ankle injury that has haunted him for years. Jan 28 - 7:46 PM

Delanie Walker caught 3-of-6 targets for 49 yards in the Titans' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

The Patriots kept Walker quiet by double teaming him on almost every passing down. He was able to get free for a 36-yard gain on the Titans’ second drive, but otherwise struggled to get open against the loaded coverage. Walker still turned in another top-ten tight end season in 2017 with a 74/807/3 receiving line. Even though he turns 34 before next season, Walker will again be one of the top mid- to late-round tight end picks on 2018 fantasy draft boards.
Jan 13 - 11:46 PM

Delanie Walker caught 6-of-8 targets for 74 yards in the Titans' Wild Card win over the Chiefs.

Walker was clearly Marcus Mariota's most trusted target, accounting for 74 of Mariota's 205 passing yards. He was doing work over the middle of the field against this Eric Berry-less defense. Walker almost cost his team big time with a false start from the one-yard line, taking a Derrick Henry touchdown off the board. But Mariota was able to score a six-yard touchdown on the next play on third down. Walker will get either the Patriots or Steelers next weekend.
Jan 6 - 8:13 PM

Delanie Walker caught 3-of-5 targets for 19 yards in the Titans' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Marcus Mariota threw for only 134 yards, 66 of which came on a screen-pass score to Derrick Henry. Walker's 19 yards led all Titans non-running backs. The Titans will undoubtedly need more from their passing game in order to pull off a Wild Card Round upset at Arrowhead Stadium.

Delanie Walker collected three catches for 33 yards on five targets Sunday in the Titans’ Week 16 loss to the Rams.

He was held to just one catch after halftime. Walker drew an end-zone target from Marcus Mariota in the first quarter, though the play was negated by a penalty. We wouldn’t expect much from Walker next week versus Jacksonville, though he did manage a respectable 61 yards when he faced them in Week 2.

Delanie Walker caught 5-of-10 targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 15 loss to the 49ers.

It was an eventful day for Walker, who also dropped a 23-yard touchdown and lost a fumble. Walker is not usually a mistake-prone player. The Titans' best overall pass catcher this season, Walker will remain a locked-in, high-end TE1 for the fantasy finals against the Rams.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 08:13:00 PM

Delanie Walker hauled in 5-of-9 targets for 42 yards in the Titans' Week 14 loss to the Cardinals.

As is usually the case, Walker was the most reliable option for Marcus Mariota against Arizona, but even he could not post a good fantasy day in a dreadful performance by the offense. He was knocked out of the game by a big hit on the final drive, but he should be fine to face the 49ers next week. He will remain a solid TE1 in that matchup.

Delanie Walker (ankle) will play Week 14 against the Cardinals.

He returned to a full practice on Friday and wasn't listed on the final injury report. Walker came down with an ankle injury in last week's win over Houston but obviously it wasn't anything serious. He's been white-hot, topping 60 yards in five of his last six outings. Marcus Mariota should funnel him targets with Patrick Peterson shadowing lead receiver Rishard Matthews.

Delanie Walker (ankle) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Walker's availability for Week 14 is starting to look a bit murky. He'll be in real trouble if he doesn't return to at least a limited practice on Friday. With Rob Gronkowski suspended, Zach Ertz in the concussion protocol and Walker's status now in question, the tight end position could be without some heavy-hitters this week.
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 02:36:00 PM

Delanie Walker (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Walker is always nicked and dinged up, so we're not yet worried about his Week 14 availability in Arizona. Expect him out there as a TE1 on Sunday.
Wed, Dec 6, 2017 03:39:00 PM

Delanie Walker is day to day with an ankle injury.

It's not really an exaggeration to say Walker comes out of every game with some sort of minor injury. 99 percent of the time, he plays through them. We would expect Walker to be out there against the Cardinals in Week 14. His status will be updated on Wednesday.
Mon, Dec 4, 2017 03:08:00 PM

Delanie Walker caught five passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Texans.

Walker has been the Titans only effective receiver over Marcus Mariota's two-game slump. He scored on a 24-yard strike late in the fourth quarter, but looked to re-injure his ankle. Walker will likely miss practice time this week. Assuming Walker doesn't miss time, he'll be a TE1 against the Cardinals in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 3, 2017 04:59:00 PM

Delanie Walker caught 4-of-5 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 12 win over the Colts.

Walker suffered a scary leg injury early on, but he missed only one snap. A true warrior, Walker went on to rip a 37-yard gain and score a two-yard touchdown. The score was flukily Walker's first receiving one of the season -- he rushed for a touchdown way back in Week 2. Walker will remain a strong TE1 option when the Titans face the leaky Texans defense next.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 04:19:00 PM

Delanie Walker caught 6-of-8 targets for 92 yards in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

The 92 yards were a new season high, but it was one of Walker's missed connections he'll be thinking about between now and Week 12. All alone in the end zone after running a great route, Walker committed one of the worst drops you will ever see in the NFL. It was a gimme touchdown, one that would have been Walker's first of the season through the air (he has a rushing score). Having now cleared 60 yards in four straight games, Walker will remain a high-end TE1 for Week 12 against the Colts.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 12:19:00 AM

Delanie Walker (wrist) has been removed from the Week 11 injury report and will play Thursday night against the Steelers.

Marcus Mariota (shoulder, ankle) was also taken off the injury report and will start, as expected. Walker gets a real tough draw against a strong defense and needs to be dropped down the ranks to borderline TE1/2 status.
