Browns' Anthony Walker: Links up with Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker is signing a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Browns, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The 25-year-old will provide some much-needed depth for Cleveland's run defense. If Walker plays a rotational role with the Browns similar to that which he did in Indianapolis, he won't have much fantasy value in IDP formats except as a bye week fill-in.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Ready for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ribs) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

Walker received the questionable tag despite practicing as a full participant all week, so his availability never truly appeared in doubt. The 25-year-old has 15 total tackles in four games since Indianapolis' bye in Week 7.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Clear for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Browns.

The 25-year-old linebacker hasn't yet missed a start in 2020, but a sudden appearance on the injury report this week put his status in question for Sunday's matchup against the Browns. Walker was able to improve from nonparticipation to partial practice participation between Thursday and Friday, and he has since been cleared by the Colts' medical staff. Walker sits just two tackles behind Darius Leonard (groin) for the team lead heading into Week 5.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Status in question for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Browns, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Walker picked up this ankle injury at some point during the practice week, as he was a non-participant Thursday but elevated to limited participation Friday. The 25-year-old is slated to start at middle linebacker if he's able to suit up. If he's sidelined, however, expect Zaire Franklin to fill in.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Held out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (ankle) missed Thursday's practice session, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports.

The 25-year-old linebacker popped up on the injury report this week, though further information on the issue is not expected to come until Friday when coach Frank Reich next speaks to reporters. Walker just racked up a season-high 11 tackles in a win against the Bears, providing him with an updated average of 7.3 tackles per game since the beginning of his breakout 2018 campaign. If Walker proves unable to suit up for Week 5, third-year man Zaire Franklin would be in line for snaps at middle linebacker against the Browns.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Seven tackles in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker had seven total tackles in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.

Walker started at middle linebacker and should put up solid tackle totals after racking up a career-high 123 tackles (84 solo) across 16 contests in 2019.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Makes 16 stops in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker notched a season-high 16 tackles (12 solo) during Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.

Walker finished the regular season with three straight double-digit tackling performances. He notched a career-high 123 tackles (84 solo) across 16 contests in 2019, in addition to 2.5 sacks, two defended passes, one interception and one forced fumble. The 24-year-old is under contract with the Colts for 2020, making him a strong candidate to reprise his starting role in the team's linebacker corps.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Ready for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game versus the Panthers.

Walker suffered the injury during Monday's loss to the Saints and began the week as a limited practice participant, but he had no limitations at Friday's session. The 24-year-old should make his 29th consecutive start Sunday for the Colts.

December 17, 2019 09:44 PM
Colts' Anthony Walker: Ruled out for remainder of contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker suffered a hamstring injury and will not return to Monday's game against the Saints, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports

The severity of the injury is unknown, but with the game out of reach, there's no sense in risking further injury for the linebacker. He ends his night with 10 tackles (five solo). Look for more updates on his status to come when the Colts resume practice later this week.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Racks up 12 tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker had 12 tackles (eight solo), a half-sack and a forced fumble during Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Titans.

Walker reached double-digit tackles for the third time this season and led the team Sunday. The 24-year-old has 82 tackles (57 solo), 1.5 sacks and one forced fumble through 12 games, putting him on pace for a second consecutive 100-tackle campaign.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Paces squad in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker registered eight tackles (five solo) in Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Texans.

Walker left for a series due to an injury, but he still managed to lead the Colts in tackles along with Kenny Moore. The 2017 fifth-round pick now has 70 stops through 11 games, putting him on pace for a second straight season with 100-plus tackles. Walker will look to slow down Derrick Henry and the Titans in Week 13.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Huge tackling day in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker notched 10 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Steelers.

Walker had a busy day against Carolina's run-happy offense, recording his second double-digit tackling performance of the season. The third-year pro is a serviceable IDP asset in favorable matchups, though he lacks any notable upside as a pass rusher.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Shifting back to MLB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker will start at middle linebacker versus the Texans on Sunday, Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports.

Walker spent the last three games suiting up at weakside linebacker with Darius Leonard sidelined, and he'll now shift back to his usual role. The third-year pro saw a sharp uptick in tackles while lined up in the middle of the defense. Walker's production now stands to deflate back to normal levels, putting a damper on his upside in IDP formats.

October 7, 2019 05:32 PM
Colts' Anthony Walker: Ready for action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game versus the Chiefs.

Walker played every defensive snap and made 24 tackles over the last two weeks, and he figures to continue his full-time workload in this contest. He'll continue to be the Colts' main run stopper with Darius Leonard (concussion) inactive for the third straight game.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Deemed questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker was added to the Colts' injury report Friday with a shoulder issue and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans.

While sliding over to weakside linebacker in place of Darius Leonard (concussion) the past two games, Walker has been a top-flight IDP option, racking up 24 tackles (19 solo) and a sack between the contests. With Leonard already ruled out for Sunday, Walker's availability will be of great import for fantasy managers that may have been thinking about using him this week. Given that Walker still managed to practice fully Friday, it's probably more likely than not that he ends up playing.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Another strong tackling performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) and a sack in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Raiders.

Walker set a career high with 15 tackles last week, and he followed it up with his second straight outing with double-digit stops. The 24-year-old linebacker doesn't normally get to the quarterback (one sack in 2018), so this was an added bonus for fantasy owners who stuck with Walker when he posted just eight stops over the first two weeks.

September 23, 2019 11:24 AM
Colts' Anthony Walker: Career high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker registered 14 tackles (11 solo) in Sunday's win over the Falcons.

Walker played all 61 snaps in this contest, and he recorded a career high in stops. He may have been counted on more with Darius Leonard (concussion) out, but it's still a promising sign that he's on track to eclipse last year's 105 tackles. He'll look to continue the success Week 4 versus the Raiders.

September 10, 2019 03:04 PM
Colts' Anthony Walker: Seven tackles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker had seven total tackles and a tackle for a loss in Sunday's loss at the Chargers. He started at middle linebacker and played on 36 of the defense's 63 snaps.

Walker struggled in coverage as he gave up receptions on all five passes targeted his way, according to Pro Football Focus. Walker remains the starting middle linebacker and stayed in for most passing downs, though he split snaps with Matthew Adams (21) and Bobby Okereke (15 snaps).

Colts' Anthony Walker: Steps up in sophomore season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker recorded 105 tackles, one sack, four passes defended, one interception and one fumble recovery in 15 regular-season contests.

Walker played 694 defensive snaps in 2018, a notable uptick from his 115 snaps played in 2017. The second-year pro has emerged as a reliable run-stopper in Indianapolis' linebacker corps, and heads into the offseason with a solid grip on the starting middle linebacker job. He'll now shift his focus towards taking another step forward in 2019.

Colts' Anthony Walker: Back at 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker (shoulder) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Andrew Walker of the team's official site reports.

Walker has been working his way back to full strength for awhile now but was finally able to avoid any limitations following Wednesday's session. In all likelihood, Walker will be ready for Saturday's game where he'll resume his work at middle linebacker.
