Anthony Walker, Jr., finalizing deal with Cleveland

The Browns and linebacker Anthony Walker, Jr., are in agreement on a one-year deal worth $5 million.

Fantasy Impact

The 26-year-old will remain with Cleveland for his second year there. In 2021, he started 12 games with two pass deflections, 113 tackles, and one sack. He returns to play middle linebacker for the team that was 14th in the league in defensive rating last year.

Anthony Walker inks one-year deal with the Browns

LB Anthony Walker is signing a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

Walker started all 16 games for the Colts in 2020, racking up 92 tackles (65 solo), one interception, five pass defenses and one fumble recovery. He’ll replace BJ Goodson at MLB, who is an unrestricted free agent. Walker is a tackling machine and expected to play a key role for the Browns in 2021.

Anthony Walker notches season-best 16 tackles

Anthony Walker recorded 12 solo tackles and four assisted tackles in a 38-20 loss to the Jaguars last Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

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 fills the box score against Carolina

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.

Fantasy Impact

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 leads the team in tackles

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.

Fantasy Impact

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.
