Titans TE Delanie Walker may have to block more in 2016

On Monday, coach Mike Mularkey mentioned the addition of RB DeMarco Murray could mean more blocking assignments for TE Delanie Walker.

The idea had already crossed Walker's mind.

“I am pretty sure,’’ Walker said. “When you have a threat like that, and you have a tight end threat, if I am on the field at all times blocking and running routes, I think that gives us a mismatch on the field. Defenses won’t know what is going on, and that just gives you another opportunity to put points on the board.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Titans were 13th in pass % (percentage of pass attempts of total called plays), and that number is likely to fall with the addition of DeMarco Murray. Tennessee was 27th in total plays, so there is plenty of room for improvement. The team will have to run more plays if Walker hopes to see the same workload.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hamstring, probable) was limited Friday after taking full reps earlier in the week and is probable for Week 16. This is a midweek downgrade, but the probable tag means that he’s very likely to play on Sunday.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (ribs, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 15. Wright will miss another game, which (in theory) benefits Delanie Walker and Dorial Green-Beckham.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (ribs, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 14. With Wright out, Dorial Green-Beckham and Harry Douglas should see more playing time, but with Darrelle Revis back in the fold (and likely shadowing DGB), the big winner might be Delanie Walker.

Titans WR Kendall Wright (knee, probable) took full practice reps again Friday and is probable for Week 12. Wright's return is good news for QB Marcus Mariota, but he may put a dent in Delanie Walker's targets.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Walker was relatively close to playing in Week 2, so he should be able to face the Colts on Sunday. The upgrade to “full” is encouraging.

Friday, September 18, 2015, 6:37pm

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand, questionable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 2. Walker has a chance to play, but some of the beat writers have their doubts. The Titans play early on Sunday, so that’s good. Walker is not looking like a strong option this week. We’re worried about his ability to catch the ball with a sprained ligament in his wrist.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) missed practice again Thursday. Walker has a chance to play and HC Ken Whisenhunt said that he was “a little closer” to practicing on Thursday. The Titans play early on Sunday. Walker is not looking like a good option this week. We’re worried about his ability to catch the ball with a sprained ligament in his wrist.

Titans TE Delanie Walker has sprained ligaments in wrist, not ruling himself out for Week 2

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

Titans tight end Delanie Walker isn’t ruling himself out of Sunday’s game at Cleveland, but said "we'll just have to wait and see."

Walker suffered sprained ligaments on his right wrist during last Sunday’s win over Tampa Bay. He didn’t practice on Wednesday and was wearing a splint around the wrist.

“I’m getting better by the day,” he said. “Just being able to stay stable and block is the biggest concern, making sure I don’t set it back. I’d rather miss one week than miss three, though, so we’ll see what happens.”

Fantasy Impact:

This sounds more like a player who is preparing to miss a week than someone who is planning to play and be productive. Even if he does suit up, his ability to catch the ball may be limited by whatever brace he has on his wrist. We would recommend avoiding Walker this weekend, if possible.

Titans TE Delanie Walker (hand) did not practice Wednesday. HC Ken Whisenhunt said there was a “chance” that Walker can play in Week 2. Owners should have a Plan B ready to go.

Whiz: 'A chance' Delanie Walker plays Week 2

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

After a hand injury forced Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker from the team's 42-14 season-opening win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said it's unclear yet whether Walker will be able to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.

"I'm optimistic. There's a chance he'll play this week. We'll see how it progresses during the week,” Whisenhunt said, per the team's official website. “That was good news…because on the field, I thought it was broken. And it's not, so that's good. There is a chance he'll play this week, and if he doesn't, then at least we'll get him back relatively quickly compared to what we thought it would be.”

Fantasy Impact:

Walker had three catches for 43 yards and touchdown before suffering the injury against the Buccaneers. The good news for the Titans is the team is carrying five tight ends on the roster, which gives Whisenhunt options in the event Walker is unable to play. Whisenhunt said Chase Coffman, who was inactive in Week 1, would help fill in for Walker if need be. This could be heading toward a game-time call.
