Titans tight end Delanie Walker is getting regular maintenance days for his knee. He returned to practice on Thursday in Week 6 and looks good to go in spite of some recent struggles. We break down the fantasy football implications.

The Tennessee Titans travel to face the Denver Broncos in Week 6, and tight end Delanie Walker is expected to be good to go for the game. Walker sat out Wednesday practice with a knee injury designation, but returned on Thursday, according to Titans reporter Erik Bacharach. Walker has sat three straight Wednesdays as the veteran continues to get maintenance days as the season progresses.

Fantasy football analysis, Titans TE Delanie Walker

Walker has quieted down for fantasy owners after a solid start to the season. He had 16 receptions for 158 yards and two touchdowns those first three games, and has had two receptions for 14 yards the past two games. The tight end position is a weak one, but that’s been concerning.

In Week 6, Walker faces a Broncos team that has given up the tenth fewest fantasy points to tight ends. The Broncos defense is inconsistent, but is coming off a solid showing against the Los Angeles Chargers. That being said, it’s not like there are many other options available to you. If you can find a decent option on waivers, have at it, but otherwise you’re likely left starting Walker.
