Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker has high expectations for the team's offense this year, and he's a believer that QB Jake Locker is primed to have a big season as he leads the offense. Walker's goal is to catch 80 passes this year after he had a career-high 60 receptions for 571 yards and a career-high six touchdowns in 2013. New head coach Ken Whisenhunt has a history of creating productive passing attacks, and Walker said he already has a good rapport with the coach.
Fantasy Tip: The tight end wasn't a big factor during Whisenthunt's time in Arizona, but he was able to help Antonio Gates be more productive last year as he nears the end of his career. We're cautious that Walker can break out to the extent he says, but he should be at least as productive as he was last year if Locker can stay healthy.

Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker said up to six players who qualified as "cancers" ruined the team in 2013 and led to the firing of head coach Mike Munchak. "When we started losing more games, we got to see it more and more, it was just like it was falling apart," Walker said. "And the players that were the cancer were dragging other players into that box with them, and the box was getting bigger and bigger. At first, it was just a small box. The box just got bigger and bigger."

Tennessee Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt said he is excited to work with TE Delanie Walker and believes Walker has some qualities similar to San Diego Chargers TE Antonio Gates. "I had a lot of respect for him there, so needless to say I'm excited that he's on this team and I'll have a chance to work with him," Whisenhunt said. "Working with Antonio Gates got me excited about the position, and I think there's a lot of elements to what Delanie does that are similar in that capacity."

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 12:20:22 -0800
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is questionable for Week 14.
Fantasy Tip: The last thing the Titans needed heading into their game against the Denver Broncos is to be without Walker, who has developed into a go-to option for Ryan Fitzpatrick. It's unlikely that Walker plays if he has yet to be cleared from his concussion. With Craig Stevens also questionable, look for Kendall Wright and Nate Washington to be relied on more often.
Thu, 05 Dec 2013 20:36:26 -0800

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 14:37:27 -0800

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 10:28:50 -0800
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said the injury to TE Delanie Walker (concussion) early in Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts affected the team's passing offense. "All of a sudden, they can put more attention on Kendall (Wright), on Nate (Washington), on our other receivers, which they couldn't have done before," Munchak said. TE Taylor Thompson played 72 of 75 offensive snaps as a result with TE Craig Stevens (concussion) also out. The status of Walker and Stevens remains up in the air for Week 14 against the Denver Broncos, and they'll have to pass the concussion tests in order to play this weekend.
Fantasy Tip: Walker will be a strong play against Denver if he is able to suit up. Keep tabs on his status this week. Whether he plays will largely determine if Nate Washington will be playable as a flex, too.

Walden was penalized for yanking off the helmet, but went unpunished for the head-butt. "(Officials) didn't see it from the sideline — he would have been thrown out of the game if they saw the head-butt," Munchak said.
Fri, 15 Nov 2013 09:36:22 -0800
Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker had a career-high 10 catches for 91 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 11 loss to the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Nov. 14.
Fantasy Tip: Now that Jake Locker (foot) is out for the year, Walker's stock will be on the rise with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm. Walker could perform at low-end TE1 levels, depending on the matchups.
Mon, 30 Sep 2013 11:25:32 -0700

Tue, 12 Mar 2013 13:58:19 -0700
The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with unrestricted free-agent TE Delanie Walker (49ers) on a four-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Tennessee was, understandably, dissatisfied with Jared Cook's play relative to his ceiling. Walker gained some attention for his occasional, big-play exploits once Colin Kaepernick was under center for the San Francisco 49ers, and the Titans' new tight end has some upside now that he'll be hooking up with another mobile passer in Jake Locker. It'll be interesting to see how his new team plans to utilize him. The athletic Walker has never been a primary tight end, except to fill in for Vernon Davis, so there should be some question about whether he can fit the bill.
Tue, 12 Mar 2013 13:17:47 -0700

Wed, 06 Mar 2013 19:48:01 -0800
The Philadelphia Eagles could pursue free-agent TE Delanie Walker (49ers), as he might fit in well with the new offense of head coach Chip Kelly since Walker can line up as a fullback, H-Back and tight end. He did have eight drops, however, in 39 targets, so that is a definite drawback.
Sat, 23 Feb 2013 04:13:14 -0800
San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent TE Delanie Walker is someone the Chicago Bears could target in free agency. The Bears would like to upgrade the tight end position and could also look to add one in the NFL Draft.
