Titans TE Delanie Walker (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he's able to get out there tomorrow, but fantasy owners need to line up a backup plan for Week 9.
Titans TE Delanie Walker practiced without limitations from the start of training camp this week, according to The Tennessean. “I feel great,” Walker told the team website. “The type of injury I had, I still have to be smart. But I feel great. I am out there running, and I did the conditioning test – no problems there. I feel good." We'll keep an eye out for setbacks as Walker returns from last year's ankle injury, but he's a decent shot to take with an ADP in the middle of TE2 territory in fantasy football drafts.
Titans TE Delanie Walker participated in 7-on-7 drills this week, according to ESPN's Turron Davenport. That doesn't necessarily mean Walker's repaired ankle will be ready for full participation at the start of training camp, but it sure seems like a big step in that direction. Walker deemed himself 85% healthy earlier in May. As just the 17th TE off the board in PlayDraft ADP right now, Walker looks like a solid-to-strong best-ball value.
Titans TE Delanie Walker says he's at "85%" as he rehabs last September's fractured and dislocated right ankle. "Today I felt fast getting out of my breaks, and I was catching the ball well," he added after Tuesday's OTA. Walker was a full-go in individual drills but did very little in team work, according to the Nashville Tennessean. Prior to last year, Walker had finished as a top-11 TE in 5 straight seasons. He's capable of returning to that level of production if healthy. But the ankle is a real concern for the soon-to-be 35-year-old. We'll keep a close eye on him this summer.
Titans TE Delanie Walker tells ESPN's Turron Davenport that his goal is to be ready to run and catch footballs at OTAs. Walker fractured and dislocated his right ankle in the 2018 season opener and missed the rest of the year. Walker will be 35 when the 2019 season begins. Tennessee will be incorporating a new OC, but Arthur Smith spent the past 6 years coaching Titans TEs. At TE18 in PlayDraft best-ball ADP right now, Walker is a fine shot to take in early drafting. TE Jonnu Smith proved inconsistent in Walker's absence last year.
Titans TE Delanie Walker dislocated his right ankle in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins and suffered an "associated fracture," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "His season is almost certainly over," Rapoport tweeted. That's certainly the way it looked when the injury happened. Jonnu Smith figures to take over as Tennessee's top TE. Expect him to be more of a TE2 in fantasy until/unless he proves otherwise.
