Delanie Walker missed Week 3 due to a hamstring injury. His Week 4 status is unclear.

News you need to know

From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Sep 26): Walker didn't practice on Wednesday or Friday due to his injured hamstring, he was limited on Thursday, and after being listed as questionable to play on Friday he was out on Sunday.

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 26): Walker missed the excellent matchup with the Raiders because of hamstring injury, and the Titans pass offense was abysmal in his absence. He could return next week against the Texans, but the whole Tennessee pass offense is suspect for fantasy going forward.

General News (Wed Sep 28): did not practice on Wednesday.

General News (Tue Sep 27): may be able to participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 29, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 2 vs DET (6 / 6 / 83 / 1 rec)

After quite the stinker in Week 1, Delanie Walker came back with a bang as he led the Titans receiving corps this week with 83 total yards and a touchdown. Walker converted all 6 of his targets for receptions, including a 30-yard touchdown pass to start the 4th quarter. Walker set up this play well as he made a great move to the inside on a midfield route and adjusted to a well-thrown ball from Marcus Mariota. Another big chunk of Walker's yardage came from a 32-yard pass on the 1st drive of the game in which he was wide open due to blown coverage by the Lions linebackers. The rest of Walker's production came primarily from screen-type plays for little gain. While the target conversion rate and overall production is positive, the actual number of targets Delanie is being afforded should be concerning thus far as his usage last year was much higher than what we have seen thus far (only targeted 6 or less times on 3 occasions when he played the entire game in 2015).

2016 Week 1 vs MIN (5 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)

Delanie Walker received a surprisingly low workload this week as he finished with only 3 receptions on 5 targets for 42 yards. The Vikings defense did a good job taking Walker out of the picture until he managed to haul in a couple of catches for 36 yards in garbage time on the Titans' last drive. If not for those catches, Walker's stat line would have been even more atrocious than it already was. Look for Walker to be much more involved next week against a Lions defense that allowed the 4th most fantasy points to tight ends in 2015.
