Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 6 vs DEN (6 / 3 / 43 / 0 rec)
Delanie Walker finished with three receptions for 43 yards to complete another relatively disappointing outing after his fairly hot start to the season. His first catch was a simple catch over the middle for eight yards late in the first quarter. The play after that, Walker was held by the Broncos defender which netted the Titans 11 penalty yards. Walker's next two receptions were a pair of 18-yarders, both coming on similar routes. The first was late in the first half as Walker was wide open down the seam. His next, and final, catch came on a 3rd-and-29 on the final drive of the game as Walker streaked open across the middle of the field for an easy reception in soft coverage. Walker was also the target of the final pass of the game which resulted in an interception.
2019 Week 5 vs BUF (2 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Walker started the game off with a 26-yard reception that was called back due to an offensive holding penalty. Walker would follow that up with a short reception for 10 yards, coming up just two yards short of converting the first down. Walker saw his only other target midway through the fourth quarter as he was well defended, but dropped what would have been a first-down ball to convert on third down--a critical missed chance for the Titans. That catch early in the game would be his only production of the day as Walker has now been virtually ignored for two straight games.
2019 Week 4 vs ATL (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Delanie Walker was held to just one reception for four yards as the Titans offense leaned on their wide receivers in this one.
2019 Week 3 vs JAX (9 / 7 / 64 / 0 rec)
Delanie Walker continued to assert his position the top receiving option for the Titans offense as he led the team in targets and receptions, hauling in seven catches for 64 yards. It was a rough evening for the offense, but Walker served as a reliable safety blanket for his quarterback who needed to get the ball out quickly while under consistent pressure. Walker had a quiet first half with just one reception for two yards, but he was peppered with targets throughout the second half. Walker's top reception of the game was at the start of the fourth quarter as Mariota hit him in stride across the seam that afforded Walker a gain of 29-yards. Three of his seven receptions would also come on the final drive as Walker took advantage of a prevent defense for the short gains.
2019 Week 2 vs IND (6 / 4 / 39 / 0 rec)
Delanie Walker was the top target again in this game as he got started early as the recipient of the Titans' first two targets. He couldn't turn his body in time to make the catch on the first one, but he did haul in the second one on a long third down, coming up just two yards short of converting. Walker added another easy eight-yard reception on the third drive. His longest catch of the game came near the end of the first half as Walker worked the coverage on a 15-yard out route, making the catch in traffic to keep the chains moving. Walker saw a deep target that fell incomplete along with a four-yard short reception as his only action in the second half.
2019 Week 1 vs CLE (6 / 5 / 55 / 2 rec)
Delanie Walker received the first pass of the season for the Titans, which he did haul in for 11 yards before the play was negated by a penalty. Two possessions later, he dropped his next target. This was likely for the best as he would have been tackled for a loss. Walker had no problem with his next target though, making a 16-yard reception streaking over the middle of the field. Walker's third catch of the game came during a two-minute drill to close out the second half as he hauled in a first-down pass for 11 yards. The second half was much more efficient for Walker, as both of his targets resulted in touchdowns. The first touchdown, near the start of the fourth quarter, came from 11 yards out as Walker did a great job getting off coverage at the line of scrimmage and hauling in a relatively high throw with a defender on his heels. Walker would find the end zone for the second time on the next drive from seven yards out as he simply leaked to the right side of the field from a pick play to be wide open and easily stride into the end zone. This was Walker's first multi-touchdown game since the 2015 season.
