Firm-footed in slippery conditions
FFremantle Dockers
September 7, 2020
Walters totaled 11 disposals (seven kicks, four handballs), four tackles, three goals and one behind in Monday's 47-33 victory over the Demons.
ANALYSIS
On a night in which goals were hard to come by, Walters led the way with three majors. it marked a season-high for the dynamic forward, although his disposal count was a little disappointing. He often floats between the forward line and the midfield, thus his inconsistent production in terms of disposals. It was the Dockers' sixth win of the season and despite being out of the race for the finals, they certainly have a lot to build off after a slow start to the season.

FFremantle Dockers
August 14, 2020
Walters (hamstring) will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's clash with Carlton.
ANALYSIS
Walters's return is major news for a Fremantle club looking to continue its string of two straight victories Saturday. He posted one of his best games of the season versus Geelong before exiting late with the hamstring issue, racking up 22 disposals, seven marks and four tackles.

Hamstring
July 29, 2020
Walters will not play in Sunday's match versus Collingwood due to hamstring tightness.
ANALYSIS
Walters' exit last week was believed to be just from cramps, but the team is taking the cautious route as he continues to deal with some tightness in it. His timetable has yet to be decided, so Walters may be out for more than a game or two if it doesn't respond well to treatment.
Exits late with cramps

Hamstring
July 27, 2020
Walters exited Monday's contest against the Cats late with a hamstring issue.
ANALYSIS
Walters was one of three Dockers banged up in a 32 point loss. It sounds like Walters' issue was the least severe of the bunch, just being a cramping issue. He should be good to go next Sunday against Collingwood.
Collects 18 disposals in loss
FFremantle Dockers
July 19, 2020
Walters logged 18 disposals (11 kicks, seven handballs) and made seven marks during Sunday's 62-32 loss to West Coast Eagles.
ANALYSIS
Walters had one of the better all-around performances during what ended as a poor result. Though he hasn't topped 20 disposals in three of his last four matches, he's collected at least three tackles and three marks over that span, which has helped keep his production consistent while the team struggles.
Impresses despite late error
FFremantle Dockers
July 11, 2020
Walters collected 26 disposals (19 kicks, 10 handballs) to go with eight clearances and three tackles during Friday's 79-73 win over Saint Kilda.
ANALYSIS
Walters had a huge day despite a couple of big errors, including kicking the wrong way early and a late penalty that gave Saints a chance to close the gap. Despite this, he lead the contest in disposals and clearances to help keep his team competitive and make one of the biggest comebacks of the season. This match also proved to be the first one in which Walters did not score, which is something he'll surely look to change in Round Seven against West Coast Eagles.
