The Titans beat writer for the Tennessean, Jim Wyatt, shared his projections for Walker this season, and he has him at 62 catches for 646 yards and five touchdowns.
To see how those projections compare to mine and Dave Richard check out this Fantasy Football Today blog here.
Walker broke out last season with 60 catches for 571 yards and six scores. His head coach, Ken Whisenhunt, and tight ends coach, Mike Mularkey, are both former NFL tight ends, and his offensive coordinator, Jason Michael, was the tight ends coach with the Chargers last season. Whisenhunt has especially come to lean on tight ends over his last three seasons, so Walker should have a shot to produce some nice numbers.
The Titans coaching staff is former NFL tight end Ken Whisenhunt as the coach, former tight ends coach Jason Michael as the offensive coordinator and former NFL tight end Mike Mularkey as the tight ends coach.
"We’re going to be very physical, we're going to play until the whistle blows, we're going to be very tough in the run game and when the passing game comes to us, we're going to make plays," Walker said. "I see the tight end position being of big impact in this offense."
"I am not saying it was this dude, this dude or this dude," he told The Tennesseean. "I just threw a number out there. I really don't know. I felt like it was a couple of guys. To be honest, I think people are taking it way too far. There were no fights, guys weren't missing meetings. That stuff wasn't going on. The locker room atmosphere wasn't bad. Everyone came to work and did their part.
"What I am talking about mainly is the attitude after losses. After you lose three straight games, I just felt like there should be more dedication to getting better and we didn't have that sometimes. I felt guys could have worked harder."
"When we started losing more games, you got to see it more and more," Walker told radio station 104.5 The Zone. "It was falling apart and the players that were the cancer were dragging other players into that box with them and the box was getting bigger and bigger."
Walker added that those players proved most instrumental in the firing of coach Mike Munchak. He said new coach Ken Whisenhunt will realize who they are when he watches game film and will weed them out.
