2016 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


With Mariota having minimal passing options at WR in 2015, Marcus threw 200 passes to the TE position leading to 139 catches for 1572 yards and 10 TDs. This added up to 40.6 percent of the Titans' QB completions to TEs, which was the best opportunity in the league by a wide margin. Delanie finished with 94 catches for 1088 yards and six TDs on 133 targets. He pretty much had two-thirds of the TE opportunity. His catch rate (70.7) was impressive while also posting a solid season in 2014 (63/890/4 on 106 targets). This season I expect the WRs to be more competitive for targets, but Walker will only have a small regression in his opportunity. Mariota likes to throw to the TE, and Delanie is by far his most reliable receiver on the team. If we set the bar at 75 catches for 900 yards with five or so TDs, Walker would still be a top six TE. His name isn't sexy, but a Fantasy owner can't dismiss his opportunity.

2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1

7.08 Brad Kruse - Walker is coming off a career year and one he can hopefully approximate in 2016.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
7.06 Mastersball - Perry Van Hook - I really like Walker and I think he will continue to be a top target for Marcus Mariota. Must admit though I was hoping either Travis Kelce or Coby Fleener were there for me to take.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
7.08 High-Stakes Expert - Kimra Schleicher - One of the most underrated TEs in the NFL. He saw 133 targets in 2015 and posted 94 receptions for 1088 yards. I don't expect him to see that many targets this season but I do expect him to finish as a TE1.
