Pros: The Houston offense is clicking and playing opposite of Andre Johnson is always a nice place to be. Walter has soft hands and has made a niche for himself in the offense as "the other guy." He's typically good for steady production and makes a solid role player for fantasy teams. He had at least three receptions in 10 out of 14 games last season.

Cons: Just when he caught the attention of fantasy football players a year ago, he disappointed with just 611 yards and two touchdowns (he scored 12 combined the previous two seasons). He has a very low ceiling. He has never posted more than 900 yards receiving or 65 receptions. Wide receiver Jacoby Jones is challenging him for the No. 2 role and will probably be rotated into the spot fairly often.

Fantasy tip: Walter isn't fancy, he isn't flashy and he won't return many big games. Yet, he's steady and should be a starter in one of the league's most prolific passing offenses. He makes a solid No. 5 fantasy receiver with No. 4 potential and is being taken, on average, in the 21st round of fantasy football drafts this summer. Walter could prove to be a steal.
