Fantasy football sit/start advice, Week 15: Delanie Walker

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

We take a look at whether or not you should start Delanie Walker in fantasy football in Week 15.

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker has passed the required tests as part of the NFL's concussion protocol. Walker sustained the concussion against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 13 and missed Tennessee's Week 15 matchup against the Denver Broncos.

The Titans lost both games, and the absence of Walker definitely was a factor. He sustained the concussion early against the Colts, and almost immediately wide receiver Kendall Wright started drawing double coverage. Wright is the team's leading receiver, but he's struggled against the double coverage in Walker's absence.

Walker's presence requires a cornerback on most days, because he's generally too quick and athletic for linebackers to hang with in coverage.

He's been probable in practice all week and seems likely to play.

Fantasy Sit/Start: Walker hasn't been as impressive on the stat sheet as hoped. He played behind Vernon Davis in San Francisco and there was reason to believe he'd receive a big boost as a starter. Still, he's caught 45 passes for 454 yards and five touchdowns this season. He's an outside start at this point, however. If he's your best option, then start him because it's almost certain he'll play, but there are better tight ends out there.
