As the offensive coordinator for the Chargers last season,
Both times he was able to get tight end Ladarius Green in the end zone. Whisenhunt will try and use a similar game plan for
Walker has 13 catches for 179 yards and two touchdowns on 18 targets and he should remain a starter in all leagues. The Bengals struggled in Week 1 against the Ravens when Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels combined for 14 catches for 117 yards, which bodes well for Walker.

"Delanie had more speed than I thought he did on that long run," Whisenhunt told ESPN.com.
Walker caught 10 balls for 142 yards in the loss. It was the first 100-yard game of his career.
After totaling three catches for 18 yards in the first half, Walker came alive in the second half, as quarterback Jake Locker also hit his stride after the break. Walker did most of his damage on a beautiful 61-yard touchdown catch. Walker came down with the reception around the Cowboys' 35-yard line and was greeted by a hard hit from a Dallas defender, but Walker stayed on his feet and outsprinted the defense to the end zone.
Sunday was the first 100-yard performance of Walker's career. He was targeted 14 times, which was also a career high. The Titans are back in action Week 3 at Cincinnati.
After recording a career-best six touchdowns in 2013,
Walker's touchdown came on a 5-yard pass from Jake Locker in the second quarter and gave Tennessee a 7-3 lead. Walker finished with three catches for 37 yards. He was targeted four times and his longest catch went 17 yards.
The Titans are back in action Week 2 vs. Dallas.
Walker will look to build off his career year in 2014 and gets his first chance to make an impression in Week 1 at Kansas City.
Walker totaled six catches for 43 yards in a 26-17 loss last season against the Chiefs. Tight ends did not fare well against Kansas City last season, averaging 6.4 Fantasy points and 40.4 receiving yards per week. Though, tight ends had better success against Kansas City late in the year, totaling seven touchdowns over the final eight games, including the playoffs.
Walker should be a regular part of the passing game again in '14 for Tennessee and should have some standout weeks. But he probably won't be as consistent as the likes of Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski or Julius Thomas, who are all considered elite Fantasy tight ends. Walker has some sleeper appeal for Week 1, but he's more of a low-end option.
