After Delanie Walker left the Titans' third preseason game due to "not feeling right," coach Mike Mularkey assured that Walker is "fine."
Walker exited in the first quarter due to a "loss of breath," but apparently it was an innocuous scare. While Tajae Sharpe has been ripping up August, Walker has managed one preseason catch for nine yards. He remains a top-ten TE1. Aug 27 - 11:18 PM

Delanie Walker left the Titans' third preseason game after the first quarter with an apparent illness.

CBS Sports' Tracy Wolfson reports Walker "didn't feel right" and "couldn't catch his breath." He walked back into the locker room and is officially questionable to return. Walker played a few snaps but was not targeted before exiting. The issue does not appear serious right now, but it is a situation to monitor.
Aug 27 - 9:19 PM

ESPN’s Paul Kuharsky expects Delanie Walker to lead the Titans in targets.

Walker led Tennessee with 133 targets last year. The Titans project to be more run heavy with the additions of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, making him likely to decline from his 94/1,088/6 line. Walker is currently getting drafted as the TE6.

Delanie Walker has the 10th-highest target share in the league last season.

Walker was the target on 26.9 percent of the Titans' passes when healthy, the largest percentage among tight ends. With Rishard Matthews now in town and Dorial Green-Beckham perhaps poised for a step forward, that number will likely come down. Add in what could be a run-heavy approach (#ExoticSmashmouth), and Walker could see a sharp decline from the 133 targets he banked last year. Despite a top-five finish last season, he is more of a back-end TE1 this time around.

Titans signed TE Delanie Walker to a two-year, $14.7 million extension through 2018.

The deal includes $8.2 million guaranteed. Walker was owed $4.28 million in the final year of his contract. The new deal locks him up through 2019 (his age-35 season). Walker is coming off career highs in catches (94) and yards (1,088) in his first season with Marcus Mariota. He'll return as the top possession target in Tennessee's offense, but could take a step back with the additions of Rishard Matthews, DeMarco Murray, and Derrick Henry. The Titans anticipate a second-year leap from Dorial Green-Beckham, while Kendall Wright returns healthy.
May 6 - 6:32 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Delanie Walker could be asked to block more this season.

The offense figures to be more balanced following the addition of DeMarco Murray, which will likely lead to more blocking snaps for Walker. With Kendall Wright healthy, Dorial Green-Beckham developing, and Rishard Matthews now in town, Walker will also likely see his target share decrease. One of the most consistent fantasy tight ends last season, Walker could take a step back this year.
Apr 21 - 9:38 AM

Delanie Walker caught 9-of-14 targets for 94 yards in the Titans' Week 17 loss to the Colts.

Walker was Tennessee's entire pass offense for most of the season, averaging 73 YPG with six touchdowns. He finished as a top-five tight end despite missing a game. Walker should continue to be the primary option in Tennessee's offense next year, but should lose more targets to Dorial Green-Beckham. He'll be a solid mid-range TE target in 2016 drafts.
Jan 3 - 5:08 PM

Delanie Walker caught 9-of-15 targets for 59 yards Week 16 against the Texans.

Walker was severely limited by Zach Mettenberger, and he could only do so much with the erratic quarterback throwing late and off target. He did manage a nice 21-yard gain line up as a receiver in the fourth quarter. Walker has been as reliable as TE1s come this season, but he will be tough to trust next week even in a good matchup with Mettenberger under center.

Delanie Walker (hamstring) was added to Friday's injury report but is listed as probable.

He was "limited" in Friday's practice. Walker should be fine for Sunday's game against the Texans. He dropped a 6-62 receiving line on Houston with Zach Mettenberger at quarterback when these teams played in Week 8.
Fri, Dec 25, 2015 04:59:00 PM

Delanie Walker caught 2-of-5 targets for 64 yards and two touchdowns in the Titans' Week 15 loss to the Patriots.

Walker's first touchdown was a standard red zone grab. His second was a tackle-breaking 57-yarder where he put clown suits on multiple Pats defenders. Walker will be a top-three option against the Texans for the fantasy finals.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 06:11:00 PM

Delanie Walker caught 7-of-13 passes for 71 yards Week 14 against the Jets.

Walker was headed for a dreadful fantasy day, but he caught four passes for 43 yards on the final drive of the game to post a respectable stat line. Walker struggled to get open against Buster Skrine all game and committed his first drop of the season. Despite a down game, Walker will remain a TE1 in a tough matchup against the Patriots next week.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:10:00 PM

Delanie Walker caught 8-of-12 targets for 92 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' Week 13 win over the Jaguars.

Consistent as they come, Walker paced the Titans in targets, seeing six more than Dorial Green-Beckham. He was picking up chunk gains left and right against a Jaguars defense that hasn't been able to cover tight ends all year. On his seven-yard touchdown, Walker beat coverage-deficient SS Johnathan Cyprien. Walker is a locked-in TE1 for Week 14 at the Jets.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 05:19:00 PM

Delanie Walker caught 6-of-8 targets for 91 yards in Tennessee's Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

Even with Kendall Wright back in action, Walker remained Marcus Mariota's de facto No. 1 receiver. Catching 6-7 passes nearly every week, Walker will be a top-five option against the Jaguars in Week 13.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 05:57:00 PM

Delanie Walker caught 8-of-10 targets for 109 yards in Tennessee's Week 11 loss to the Jaguars.

The receptions and targets both matched Walker's most of the season, while the yardage was a new best. Walker was the only Titans pass catcher gaining any separation. He could have notched another grab or two with better ball placement from Marcus Mariota. There was a scary moment in the second half where Walker looked to suffer an obvious concussion, but he never appeared to get evaluated. Locked in as an every-week TE1, Walker has a dream Week 12 matchup in the Raiders.
Fri, Nov 20, 2015 12:05:00 AM

Delanie Walker caught 3-of-4 passes for 52 yards Week 10 against the Panthers.

Walker looked to be on his way to another big game early, but he was held without a catch in the second half. Walker has been rock steady in PPR formats, but he had failed to record 70 yards or a touchdown in 5-of-8 games this season. He will be a low-end TE1 Thursday night against Jacksonville.
