Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker caught eight passes for 53 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Walker was targeted 11 times and did have a couple of drops, but this is his first game since suffering a concussion in Week 13. Walker is now the Titans' second-leading receiver in terms of receptions, with 53 catches for 507 yards and six touchdowns on the year. Only Kendall Wright had more targets in the game, with 20.

Fantasy impact: Walker has become a solid fantasy starter in his first season in Tennessee and should remain so through the playoffs. He's one of quarterback Ryan's Fitzpatrick's most reliable targets and has been the second-leading target since Fitzpatrick took over following Jake Locker's injury. Walker has a great matchup in Week 16 when the Titans travel to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars, who are giving up the second-most fantasy points to tight ends.
