Delanie Walker

Tight End • Titans

2018 Projections

68 806 5


In 2017, Walker posted his fifth consecutive productive season in Tennessee. His 74 receptions tied him for third (with Ertz), and his 807 receiving yards placed him fourth among tight ends. Walker led the Titans in receptions and receiving yards last season. In fact, in each season since 2014, he has been either first or second on the team in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches. (In 2013, Walker was first on the team in TD grabs, and second in receptions, but was third in receiving yards.) He has produced at least 63 catches and 800 receiving yards for four seasons in a row. Walker’s best year was 2015 when he topped all tight ends with 94 receptions and gained 1,088 yards with six scores. In his five seasons with the Titans he has 26 receiving touchdowns. In two playoff games at Kansas City and New England last season, Walker paced Tennessee with nine receptions for 123 yards.


When the 2018 season begins, Walker will be 34 years old and entering his 13th NFL campaign. He scored only three touchdowns last year. Tennessee’s offense is less than dynamic. In 2017, the Titans ranked 23rd in passing yards and total yards, and finished 19th in scoring.

Bottom Line

He might not be a real flashy pick, but Walker has been a solid fantasy producer for four years running. He’s the main cog in Tennessee’s limited passing attack. He is a terrific check-down option for QB Marcus Mariota. At 6-foot-2, Walker’s not the prototypical red-zone option, but he is a solid TE1 in all formats.
