RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Walker set a franchise record last season for receiving yards by a tight end. It could have been much more, too, had he caught more than 59.4 percent of his targets (27th among qualified TE). He finished fifth in targets among tight ends but ninth in receptions. Walker didn't get much help from his quarterbacks, who ranked 27th in completion percentage, instead doing much of his damage himself. He used elite speed (4.49 40) and athleticism to average 6.1 yards after the catch (3rd among TE) en route to 14.1 YPC (2nd) as he totaled 12 receptions of 20-plus yards (4th). But at 6-0, 248, Walker is one of the league's smallest starting tight ends, which makes red-zone work a battle. He had 12 red-zone targets but only four catches and three touchdowns last season. Walker's fortunes this season are likely tied to the development of rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota.

2014

After seven years in San Francisco as Vernon Davis' backup, Walker enjoyed a productive first season in Tennessee as the starter. Despite being undersized at 6-0, 248, Walker proved effective in the red zone with 17 targets, six inside the 10-yard line. But while Walker had career numbers on 86 targets (12th among TE) he averaged only 9.5 yards per catch (27th among qualified TE) and 6.6 yards per target (30th). Much of that had to do with an uninspiring Titans passing offense and injuries to quarterback Jake Locker, who played just seven games. New head coach Ken Whisenhunt's offense is expected to be more tight end-friendly this season, which could make Walker more efficient. A healthy Locker -- he's never played more than 11 games in a season -- would be a plus, too. Walker also has little competition for tight-end targets, as Craig Stevens is more of a blocking tight end.

2013

Primarily a receiving specialist due to his lack of size, Walker caught nine passes of 20-plus yards on only 39 targets. Walker struggled with drops, though, leading qualified receivers in drops-per-target with eight. Nonetheless, he's the top tight end in Tennessee this season after signing a four-year deal. The Titans did not use the departed Jared Cook in a traditional tight-end role last season, often splitting him out wide. Perhaps that bodes well for Walkerís prospects as he was best used running the wheel route out of the backfield with the 49ers. Ultimately, Walker needs better quarterback play than the Titans have seen in recent years to have a major impact.

2011

Undersized for a tight end at 6-0, Walker has done a nice job since converting from wide receiver. He fit the role of backup quite well, grabbing 29 catches for 331 yards last season. It would take an injury for him to deserve fantasy consideration, but Vernon Davis hasnít missed a game the last three years.

2010

Walker managed to catch 21 passes for 233 yards during the 2009 season as Vernon Davis' backup, and is a pretty decent receiving threat for a backup tight end. Barring injury to Davis, don't expect Walker to top his 2009 numbers.

2009

Walker will back-up Vernon Davis at tight end and see time on special teams as a kick returner.

2008

Walker is slated as the backup TE for the 49ers, however, may provide some fantasy value as a backup fantasy TE.

2007

Battling Billy Bajema and Zach Hilton to be the backup tight end behind Vernon Davis.

2006

Selected in the sixth round of this year's draft. May see some time at wide receiver, tight end and F-Back, but won't produce nearly enough to warrant a spot on a fantasy squad.
