Walker converted eight targets into six receptions for 91 yards in Sunday's loss to Oakland. Walker was the only member of the Titans to top 30 receiving yards, as quarterback Marcus Mariota continues to struggle to build a rapport with the rest of the team. It's hard to ask much more of Walker considering he has 200 receiving yards over the last two weeks while the rest of his teammates have 249 combined. Look for the tight end to have another solid game next week against a Jaguars defense that he roasted for eight receptions and 109 yards in Week 11.
Walker caught eight passes for 109 yards on 10 targets in Thursday's 19-13 loss to the Jaguars. Walker crashed into the end-zone wall while chasing an overthrow during the third quarter, but he appeared to only miss one snap. He was unsurprisingly the clear focal point of Tennessee's passing game, with no other player receiving more than six targets, and only two other players (Dorial Green-Beckham and Harry Douglas) getting more than two. There's some chance Kendall Wright (knee) will be back for a favorable Week 12 matchup with the Raiders, but even so, Walker should still see plenty of looks from Marcus Mariota. There are only a few tight ends getting this kind of consistent volume, and Walker has now led his team in receiving yards in six straight games.
Walker caught 7-of-8 targets for 95 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Saints. Walker found the end zone for the first time since Week 1 as the Titans offense came alive in interim head coach Mike Mularkey's debut. The veteran tight end's breakout also coincided with the return of starting quarterback Marcus Mariota, which should hardly come as a surprise considering their chemistry prior to Mariota's injury. Walker has been the surest bet in the Titans passing game for a while, and he should continue to excel moving forward.
Walker once again led the Titans with six receptions on six targets for 62 yards in Sunday's loss at Houston. Walker might be the only player exempt from blame for Tennessee's recent offensive woes, as the tight end has been a model of consistency despite the lack of production around. He hauled in all of his targets in this one despite nobody else on the team topping 23 receiving yards, and now has at least six catches in three straight contests. The only hole in Walker's resume is his lack of touchdowns, but nobody on the Titans roster has been scoring lately.
Titans tight end Delanie Walker hauled in seven of his team-leading nine targets for 55 yards Sunday against the Falcons. Walker continues to play well, but the tight end hasn't scored since Week 1. The veteran has been a consummate professional playing in Tennessee's abysmal offense, and should continue to lead the team in targets for what it's worth. Sadly, touchdowns will still be hard to come by if Tennessee continues to average 10 points per game like they have over the past three weeks.
