The Tennessee Titans are back at practice following their Week 11 bye, and they’re getting some key weapons back on the field. Tight end Delanie Walker and wide receiver Corey Davis are both back at practice after being inactive in Week 11, according to beat writer Turron Davenport.

Walker aggravated an ankle injury in Week 7 and has been sidelined ever since. This marks his first practice since the aggravation. Jonnu Smith has started in his place and has been targeted an average of six times each of the past three games.

Davis injured his hip in Week 9 and sat out practice all that next week. He was listed as doubtful on the final injury report before being a game-day inactive. His absence moved Tajae Sharpe into the starting lineup opposite A.J. Brown against the Chiefs. Sharpe had one reception on one target while Brown had one reception on four targets.

Fantasy football analysis: Titans WR Delanie Walker, WR Corey Davis

If Walker returns, Jonnu Smith loses a fair amount of value. Walker likely returns to his starting role, but Smith’s recent play could cut into Walker’s own value. The Jaguars defense is good but not great against tight ends, but it does solid work. Walker is probably the better start if active, but neither is a great start.

The Jaguars defense is also good but not great against wide receivers. Neither Davis or Brown is a particularly good start this week. They’re not awful, but ideally you can find some better options for this week while we see how the passing game looks after a limited performance prior to the bye against Kansas City.
