Delanie Walker has proved to be a tremendous pick-up for the Titans, as he’s caught 123 passes for 1,461 yards and 10 touchdowns over the past two seasons. But he’ll face even more of a challenge this year, as Walker probably will be working with rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota. Expect the young signal-caller to place plenty of reliance on his veteran tight end, who has been a dependable target for a handful of Titans quarterbacks.
Last year, Walker finished #9 in standard formats and #8 in PPR leagues even though he missed a game and a half in the middle of the season due to a concussion. He was #12 and #11, respectively, in 2013. In his last 22 games with the Titans, he has averaged 11.9 PPG in PPR formats, which would have been enough for a #6 finish last season. In Marcus Mariota, he should get an upgrade at quarterback and figures to remain a big part of the team’s passing attack, such that it is.
