TE Delanie Walker had four receptions with 37 receiving yards and a touchdown at home against the Texans. It was Walker's first touchdown since Week 4 against the Colts.

Fantasy Impact: The touchdown in the third-quarter saved what could've been a quiet day for Walker. He was targeted nine times by the rookie QB Zach Mettenberger, but only hauled in four of the passes. Mettenberger threw behind Walker on a few targets causing multiple incompletions and one interception. Their timing in the passing game was a little off early in the game, but improved some in the second-half. It should continue to improve as Mettenberger gets more comfortable with the offense. Walker could return to his early season success should Mettenberger catch on quickly.

TE Delanie Walker had two catches for 17 yards against the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact: Walker had his lowest fantasy output of the season. He was open deep down field at one point, but QB Charlie Whitehurst's pass sailed over his head for an interception. Walker has failed to score in the last three games after catching a touchdown in three out of the first four games. Defenses are playing tighter coverage on him after his hot start to the season. He should bounce back soon with QB Jake Locker likely to come back from injury, and he is still one of the only dependable targets for the Titans. Fantasy owners who were savvy enough to trade him while he was performing great early in the season are being vindicated right now.

TE Delanie Walker was often unable to escape the Browns heavy coverage on Sunday. The extra attention paid to him opened up coverage for WRs Justin Hunter and Kendall Wright on the outside. Walker ended up with four catches for 47 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Delanie Walker clearly caught the attention of the Cleveland Browns after having a strong start to the season. They made sure he didn't have a big day against them, but it allow for big days for the other Titans receivers. Walker is still a big part of the Titans offense. He could easily bounce back against the Jaguars at home this Sunday.

TE Delanie Walker caught five passes for 84 yards and a touchdown in another Titans loss.

Fantasy Impact: Walker continues to shine even though his team is losing. He also proved that he can be effective with either Jake Locker or Charlie Whitehurst at QB. Right now, Walker may be the only Titans player worth starting on your fantasy team. His totals of 22 receptions, 317 yards and 3 touchdowns have made him a top five fantasy TE after four games. He is basically a must start this weekend against the Browns unless you have Julius Thomas or Jimmy Graham.

TE Delanie Walker played the best game of his 9-year NFL career in a loss against the Cowboys. He had ten receptions for a career best 142 yards and one touchdown.

Fantasy Impact: Walker accounted for over half of the Titans receptions and receiving yards on Sunday. He demonstrated tremendous speed and acceleration on his 61 yard touchdown reception. He set a new career best 142 yards, and tied his previous best ten catches. He also has a touchdown in both games this season. This is by far the fastest start of Walker's career, and it will be interesting to see if he can continue his good play. He definitely looks like a great fit in Whisenhunt's system. Pick him up if he is available in your league, because he is working his way into TE1 territory. Walker owners should consider trading him while he's hot if you already have a top TE.

Terry McCormick on Twitter reported TE Delanie Walker left practice early with a shoulder injury and didn't return to the field. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he doesn't believe the injury is serious.

Fantasy Impact: Walker will probably take it easy for a day or two. His draft value should remain as a late round TE2 target. If the injury turns out to be worse than anticipated there won't be a Titans TE worth drafting, and Locker's limited fantasy value would take a slight hit.

Delanie Walker has been far and away the best tight end for Tennessee this offseason. Walker has worked hard on his blocking this offseason to make sure he can stay on the field more often. Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean believes "all signs point to a big year" for Walker. (Source: Nashville Tennessean)

Fantasy Impact: Walker did show flashes last year that he could be a very productive tight end. At this point he's still being drafted as nothing more than a backup, but could easily finish inside the top 10.
