Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 16 vs IND (2 / 2 / 20 / 1 rec)
Walford caught a 5-yard touchdown pass. He ran a short out route and was able to jump inside an awful tackle attempt from rookie T.J. Green to turn upfield and get into the end zone.
2016 Week 15 vs SD (3 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Walford drew a holding flag on a slant route into the end zone. Without the hold, it's likely he would have been able to haul in a 13-yard touchdown pass. Walford continues to split time with Rivera at tight end and isn't a primary target in the offense at this point.
2016 Week 14 vs KC (3 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
Walford played 59% of the snaps, but wasn't a big factor in the passing game. He hasn't seen a red zone target in two weeks and is losing work to Mychal Rivera in the passing game. Both factors make Walford a fantasy non-factor down the stretch.
2016 Week 13 vs BUF (3 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Walford played 45 snaps to Mychal Rivera's 20, but Rivera had the better fantasy day as Walford was limited to just one catch.
2016 Week 12 vs CAR (4 / 3 / 43 / 1 rec)
Walford made a key 3rd-and-long grab for 17 yards to keep the chains moving on a fourth quarter touchdown drive, going low to snag the ball before it hit the ground. On the very next play, Walford grabbed an 11-yard touchdown pass. This time he went high to make the catch, leaping to high-point the ball on a back shoulder throw down the seam.
2016 Week 9 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Walford almost caught a 14-yard touchdown on the first possession. Carr under threw him just slightly, allowing the trailing linebacker to get a hand on the pass.
2016 Week 8 vs TB (4 / 3 / 31 / 0 rec)
Made a key 17-yard grab in heavy traffic on the Raiders last minute, game-tying drive.
2016 Week 4 vs BAL (4 / 2 / 23 / 0 rec)
Walford was wide open in the middle of the field for what should have been a 15-yard gain, but let the ball go right through his hands. It was his second bad drop in as many weeks. Walford had a key 17-yard reception down the seam on the Raiders game-winning touchdown drive. He was targeted in the end zone on the next play, but was well covered. Walford left the game with a leg injury on the play, but Jack Del Rio indicated the injury wasn't serious. Blocking tight end Lee Smith suffered a serious injury and will miss an extended amount of time, which should lead to more playing time for Walford going forward.
2016 Week 3 vs TEN (3 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)
Walford had a 24-yard touchdown catch taken off the board due to a holding call. He easily beat a linebacker on a post route over the middle and held onto the ball despite taking a hit.
2016 Week 2 vs ATL (7 / 6 / 50 / 1 rec)
Walford's first two catches were dump offs on third down that didn't come close to moving the sticks. Had a bad drop just seconds before halftime on a slant route that would have put the Raiders in range for a long field goal attempt. Walford took advantage of a blown coverage by the Falcons defense to haul in a 31-yard touchdown. He lined up inline, got a free release and came wide open down the sideline behind the linebacker and in front of the secondary. Desmond Trufant slipped trying to get over to make the tackle, which allowed Walford to walk into the end zone untouched.
2016 Week 1 vs NO (5 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Walford had a mediocre game despite logging the majority of the snaps at tight end in a favorable Week 1 matchup. He was flagged for a hold that caused a promising Raiders drive to stall. Walford was targeted in the end zone, but was well covered between two defenders. He also looked uncomfortable trying to get both feet down in-bounds on a key pass attempt in the final minutes of the game near the end zone. He stumbled a bit and couldn't get both feet down in-bounds.
