Delanie Walker caught 4-of-5 targets for 75 yards in the Titans' Week 8 win over the Jaguars.
The 75-yard effort was Walker's second straight, and third of the season. Walker is averaging just six targets after managing a weekly nine in 2015, but is slowly putting himself back on the high-end TE1 map. He's Tennessee's most-reliable playmaker. The Chargers are an unimposing Week 9 matchup. Oct 28 - 12:22 AM

Delanie Walker (chest) has been removed from the Week 8 injury report.

Walker is good to go for a dream spot against a terrible Jaguars team. He's seen at least eight targets in three of the past four games as an elite TE1.
Oct 26 - 2:58 PM

Delanie Walker (chest) was upgraded to "full" in Tuesday's practice.

Walker picked up the nick in Sunday's loss to the Colts, but is fine after getting a "DNP" on Monday. Walker has had an up-and-down year, but remains a high-end TE1.
Oct 26 - 11:59 AM

Delanie Walker suffered a bruised chest in Sunday's loss to the Colts.

That was the extent of coach Mike Mularkey's update on Monday. It doesn't sound like an issue that will affect Walker's Week 8 availability, though the Titans are playing in the Thursday night game. Owners will need to double-check Walker's status.
Oct 24 - 2:05 PM

Delanie Walker caught 7-of-8 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 8 loss to the Colts.

Walker got shaken up on a big hit away from the ball in the second half, but he returned to finish the game and continue racking up catches against a Colts defense that has been incomparably brutal defending opposing tight ends. Walker's matchup will be tougher in Week 8 against the Jaguars, who have been good versus the position. Walker remains a top-ten TE1 option every week.
Oct 23 - 5:23 PM

Delanie Walker reeled in one-of-two targets for 21 yards Sunday in the Titans' Week 6 win over the Browns.

Blessed with a can’t-miss fantasy matchup, Walker seemed like a chalk play in DFS this week. Instead he flopped miserably and didn’t even catch his first pass until early in the fourth quarter. Delanie was targeted 18 times in his previous two outings, which would suggest Sunday’s lackluster showing was merely an outlier. Look for Walker to rebound next week against the Colts.
Oct 16 - 6:45 PM

Delanie Walker delivered five catches for 66 yards and a touchdown on eight targets Sunday in the Titans' Week 5 win over the Dolphins.

Walker had an eventful first quarter with a 29-yard catch and a fumble, though the loose ball was recovered by Tennessee. He put the Titans ahead for good by hauling in a 20-yard bullet from Marcus Mariota late in the first half. Walker had a defender glued to him on the play but scored anyway. It was a nice bounce-back effort for Walker after catching just two-of-eight targets for 34 yards in last week’s loss to Houston. He’ll be a no-brainer TE1 next week against Cleveland’s vulnerable secondary.
Oct 9 - 5:17 PM

Delanie Walker secured two-of-eight targets for 34 yards Sunday in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Texans.

Walker led the team with eight targets but his return from a one-week hamstring injury wasn’t enough to snap Marcus Mariota out of his sophomore slump. His longest catch came on a 24-yard dart from Mariota in the first quarter. He was wide open but Mariota underthrew it, causing Walker to fall down on the play. Walker was targeted in the end zone in the third quarter but had the ball knocked away by Houston corner A.J. Bouye. Look for Walker to have a bounce-back game against the Dolphins in Week 5.
Oct 2 - 4:59 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Delanie Walker (hamstring, questionable) is expected to play Week 4 against the Texans.

This is not a surprise after Walker sounded optimistic about his chances late in the week. Even though he will be active, Walker is nothing more than a back-end TE1 in a tough matchup and playing in a dysfunctional passing game.
Oct 2 - 8:19 AM

Delanie Walker (hamstring, questionable) said he has an "opportunity to play" this week.

Coach Mike Mularkey said Walker's status will be determined by a pre-game workout, but it sounds like he is trending in the right direction. Jace Amaro would be the primary pass-catching threat at tight end if Walker sits, but he is not worth streaming against the Texans. Daily Slant: Even if Walker suits up, this is a spot to fade him. Although he’s one of Mariota’s favorite targets, Kendall Wright’s return will cut into his workload. Plus, Houston’s strong pass defense ranks second against tight ends, per Football Outsiders. With an implied team total of just 18 points, Tennessee will likely continue their struggle to score points, limiting his touchdown potential. Walker’s big game this season was against the Lions, a team that’s given up the second most points to the position. Houston is a much tougher matchup. Look for Walker to capitalize on a weak Dolphin’s defense next week instead.
Oct 1 - 12:33 PM

Delanie Walker (hamstring, questionable) will be a game-time decision for Week 4 at Houston.

Coach Mike Mularkey said Friday Walker will be put through a pre-game workout to determine whether he's fit to play. The fact that Walker practiced on back-to-back days bodes well, but he was limited in both workouts and the Titans are not committing to playing him. "He's improving," Mularkey insisted.
Sep 30 - 1:25 PM

Delanie Walker (hamstring, questionable) participated in Titans practice again Friday.

Walker participated in Thursday and Friday's sessions. He missed last Friday's practice and was inactive against the Raiders, so this looks like a step in the right direction. We're tentatively expecting him to start at Houston.
Sep 30 - 1:11 PM

Delanie Walker (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It puts Walker on track to return against the Texans, but doesn't guarantee it after he missed Week 3. Walker was sorely missed against the Raiders. Presumably not back to full health, he'll be a back-end TE1 if he suits up against Houston.
Sep 29 - 2:37 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey expects Delanie Walker (hamstring) to play Sunday.

Walker was held out of Wednesday's practice. He was close to playing against the Raiders, but didn't show enough in pre-game warmups. It sounds like Walker should miss only one game, though the early DNP isn't a good start. Walker's return is a needed upgrade to a Tennessee offense that was held to one touchdown last week.
Sep 28 - 4:44 PM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey expects Delanie Walker (hamstring) to resume practicing on Thursday.

Walker was close to playing on Sunday, before being declared inactive. It sounds like the Titans expect him to be in the starting lineup against the Texans.
