From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Walker's receiving stat line wasn't gaudy but a lot of fantasy players would have taken those numbers this week. Add in the rare tight end goal line carry and Walker was a stud this week. He'll be favored for targets against the strong Seahawks secondary next week.

Week 3: vs Seattle Seahawks

All TE vs SEA

FBG says: Tough matchup. The Titans passing attack, and offense as a whole, started out very sluggish last week against a tough Jaguars secondary. Marcus Mariota looked sloppy in the first half, but he really turned it around on the other side of halftime, completing six of nine passes for 135 yards and a touchdown. Delanie Walker continues to showcase his connection with Mariota as he led the team in receiving yards for a second week in a row (while also adding a career-first rushing touchdown last week). Rishard Matthews made a couple of big plays on one drive but was otherwise quiet. Corey Davis was ineffective for three-quarters before leaving with a hamstring injury similar to what he was dealing with throughout training camp. He would later return to help with run-blocking but is still listed as day-to-day. The stats did not look eye-popping for this passing offense last week, but much of that was due to the game script as the Titans centered their offense around the run during the second half to protect their lead. The Seahawks pass defense has allowed only 5.9 yards per pass attempt in their first two games, including Week 1 against Aaron Rodgers. The sample is small, but this is one of the most feared secondaries in the league with some serious talent at most positions. Bobby Wagner had Brian Hoyer's number last week as he read Hoyer like a book, defending two passes while intercepting one. Both safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor continue to look solid this year in defending over the top. Delanie Walker will have a tough time finding space in the middle against these linebackers and safeties, Corey Davis likely will not be 100%, and Rishard Matthews should see a lot of Richard Sherman.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs JAX (4 / 4 / 61 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 1 rush)

Delanie Walker led the Titans in receiving for the second week in a row, completing the catch on all four of his targets for 61 yards. Walker came up big in key situations here, including a 19-yard catch on a long third down early in the second half. Mariota also hauled in another long catch for 17 yards on the next drive to set up the Titans' first touchdown of the day. Walker looked very good running routes here and has a clearly-established connection with Mariota. Walker also had a career highlight during this gameóthat being his first ever rushing touchdown. It is rare to see a tight end involved in rushing the ball near the goal line, but the Titans used Walker on a misdirection play with Walker coming in motion from the left on a clear goal-line package, grabbing the quick handoff from Mariota, and sprinting to the right corner to walk it in for an easy one-yard touchdown.

2017 Week 1 vs OAK (9 / 7 / 76 / 0 rec)

After being nearly non-existent in the first half with only two targets with one reception for 10 yards, Delanie Walker finished with a team-leading seven receptions and 76 receiving yards. Starting with Mariota's first pass of the second half, Walker reminded everyone of the chemistry he can develop with Marcus Mariota. Walker proceeded to catch six of his seven balls in the second half, including a 23-yard diving reception on the final drive of the third quarter, ending in a field goal for the Titans. Walker had two more long receptions on subsequent drives, for 17 and 13 yards respectively. He finished as the most efficient target amongst primary Titans receivers here, only missing out on two of his nine targets.
