Anthony Walker Jr.
LB - IND
Week 7 Outlook
Anthony Walker recorded 12 solo tackles and four assisted tackles in a 38-20 loss to the Jaguars last Sunday.
Walker came on strong in the second half of the season, even outperforming All-Pro teammate Darius Leonard in some games, at least from a statistical perspective. Though the Colts didn't have the season they had hoped for, they can at least be satisfied with having one of the top, young linebacker duos in the league.
Anthony Walker posted eight solo tackles, two assisted tackles, one sack, one QB hit, one pass defended, and one interception in a 38-6 domination of the Panthers.
Walker produced his most dominant and well-rounded game of the year, even recording his first interception of 2019. Even with having nothing to play for in Week 17, he's a decent option against an underwhelming Jaguars team.
Anthony Walker performed well in a 31-17 loss to the Titans, recording eight solo tackles, four assisted tackles, 0.5 sacks, one QB hit, and one forced fumble.
Walker's impressive game started off with a bang, as he punched the ball out of Derrick Henry's grasp on the first play from scrimmage and gave his offense a chance to capitalize. Though his team did take an early 7-0 lead off of his turnover, both the offense and the defense sputtered the rest of the way and lost a crucial game to the rival Titans. There should be better options than Walker next week when the Colts take on the Bucs.
Anthony Walker was added to the Colts' injury report Friday with a shoulder issue and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
While replacing Darius Leonard (concussion), Walker has been a top-flight IDP option, racking up 24 tackles (19 solo) and a sack between the contests. Walker managed to practice fully Friday, it's probably more likely than not that he ends up playing.
Anthony Walker recorded 11 solo tackles, three assisted tackles, and two TFLs in a 27-24 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
With their All-Pro LB out with a concussion, Walker did an admirable job filling in his shoes. If Leonard remains on the sidelines, Walker might be a decent flyer off the waiver wire.
