Draft note
by John Paulsen
Walker had 74 catches for 807 yards and three scores in his last full season with the Titans, which made him the. No. 6 fantasy tight end in 2017. From 2014-2017, he averaged 74-896-5.0, numbers that would put him squarely inside the top five at his position. But there are a couple of things working against him this season. First of all, he’s 35 and nearing the end of his career. (His 10.9 yards per catch in 2017 was a four-year low.) The other issue is the talent that the Titans brought in to help the passing game. Adam Humphries figures to be Walker’s biggest competition since they both will work the middle of the field. Corey Davis’s targets jumped from 65 in 2017 to 112 in 2018, so the team obviously wants to get him going. They also added a talented rookie, A.J. Brown, to the mix. In total, Walker is more likely to post baseline-type numbers at the position than he is to find himself in the top five again.

TEN TE Delanie Walker - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
From 2013 to 2017, Delanie Walker averaged 71 receptions for 831 yards and five touchdowns, making him a TE1 in all formats. He's a favorite target of Marcus Mariota, which helps with that production.

Fantasy Downside
At 35, Walker is coming off a season in which he played just one game because of injury. Will age finally catch up with him in 2019?

2019 Bottom Line
Mariota struggled without his security blanket in 2018, so he should be happy about the return of Walker. In his one game in 2018, he got seven targets, catching four passes for 52 yards. Tight ends can make a go of it into their mid-to-late 30s, so Walker should be fine. But his days of catching 90-plus passes, as he did in 2015, are behind him. At this point, Walker is a low-end TE1, high-end TE2 given the fact Mariota favors him so much. If he can stay on the field, you can pencil in 60 or so catches for around 600 yards and a handful of scores.
