Delanie Walker injury: Titans TE probable, should play for fantasy owners

Delanie Walker is probable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker is likely going to return to the lineup on Sunday against the rizona Cardinals. Walker is officially listed as probable on the injury report, but by all accounts, he's ready to go. Walker sustained a concussion against the Indianapolis Colts on Dec. 1.

Walker didn't get through the NFL's required concussion protocols to play in Week 14 and missed the game against the Denver Broncos. Walker sustained the injury early in the first quarter against the Colts, so he's essentially missed two games due to said injury.

Walker only managed a single catch for five yards in that game against Indianapolis.

Fantasy Impact: Walker has 45 receptions for 454 yards and five touchdowns. He is a matchup nightmare for defenses, comparing favorably to linebackers in coverage. Walker hasn't had the best season, but his presence on the field improves the Tennessee offense even when he's not catching passes. Wide receiver Kendall Wright leads the team in yardage, but without Walker in the lineup, Wright has faced more double teams than ever.
