Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 11: Delanie Walker

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Delanie Walker is heating up at least a little bit and could have his role change with the new quarterback. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Tennessee Titans will come off their embarrassing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars and will be in the national spotlight on Thursday Night Football against the first-place Colts.

Tight end Delanie Walker coming off his best game of the season in almost every department in that loss. He scored his fourth score of the season, had a season-high 62 receiving yards and his four catches were tied his second highest total in a game all year. He was also targeted a season-high eight times.

Those four catches were tied with Week 5 and 6, which was the two weeks Ryan Fitzpatrick made his two previous starts. Fitzpatrick has used his tight ends a lot in his days and it might have a little to do with how poorly he handles pressure.

Walker doesn't run a lot of deep routes like he did in his days back with the Niners, but the Titans just don't get the ball down the field anymore.

Fantasy impact: If it weren't for the short week, Walker might be a top-10 play with some room for upside. Plus, the Colts aren't too shabby at defending tight ends as the ninth-toughest defense for tight ends. He's not really worth using until he can prove some level of consistency.
