How to handle Delanie Walker injury in Week 4 fantasy football

Titans tight end Delanie Walker seems good to go in spite of his injury designation during Week 4. We break down the fantasy football implications heading into Titans-Falcons.

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker made his first injury-related appearance on the injury report in 2019, but all seems well for Week 4. The tight end was a DNP on Wednesday and Thursday with a knee issue, but he was a full participant on Friday and is not listed on the final injury report.

Walker had a maintenance day in Week 2, and after a full week of practice in Week 3, this could just be more of the same in Week 4. He dislocated his ankle last season, and so it’s safe to say the Titans don’t want to risk any issues for one of Marcus Mariota’s premium pass catchers.

Fantasy impact: Walker is expected to play on Sunday, and his removal from the final injury report bodes well. If you (like me) are a Walker owner, you should expect him to play. After he missed all but one game last season, Walker is offer to a solid start in 2019. Through three weeks he has 21 catches for 158 yards and two touchdowns. He leads the team in every receiving category and gets an enticing matchup against the Falcons in Week 4. He’s a must start.
