Walker (ankle) is targeting a return to the field during OTAs, but remains without a timetable to get back to "full health"


Delanie Walker's untimely ankle fracture in week one of 2018 was a huge blow to a team in need of receiving help. He would miss the entire year with this injury and vacate the 104 targets he received in the year prior. Walker is expected to be fully healthy by the beginning of this season. He will turn 35 this year, causing some to question how much time he has left in the league. The good news is that tight ends often play longer than other positions and getting injured so early in last year's campaign may have saved him from additional wear and tear to his body. While it's unlikely that Walker will be the centerpiece of the passing game as he was in 2017, it's possible that he will be second in targets to only Corey Davis. The offense is one that is very tight end-centric and will count on Walker to work the short areas of the field and the seam to keep the chains moving. If Walker's recovery goes as planned, he's a likely bet to get back into solid fantasy starter status for his fantasy general managers. (April 19)

Titans | Delanie Walker getting closer to full health (Tue May 21, 05:55 PM) - Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) estimates he is 'in the 85 percent range' in terms of his recovery from the season-ending ankle injury he suffered in Week 1 of last season. Walker practiced for the first time since before the injury Tuesday, May 21, and appeared to be moving well and cutting smoothly, according to Erik Bacharach of the Tennessean.

Our View: Getting Walker back is nothing but a good thing for the Titans offense. Walker is a favorite target of QB Marcus Mariota, who seems to be in a make-or-break year for Tennessee. We see Walker as a TE2 with TE1 upside for Fantasy GMs in 2019. Walker has a current ADP of TE13 (11.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.
