|No longer playing second fiddle to Vernon Davis, Delanie Walker enjoyed his best season to date with the Titans in 2013. In 15 games as Tennessee's starter, Walker had more targets, receptions and yards than he did in his previous two seasons combined as a member of the 49ers. He became a larger part of the offense as the season went along, receiving seven or more targets in five of the team's final eight games. Under the Ken Whisenhunt's play calling last year, an aging Antonio Gates surpassed 100 targets in route to a team-leading 77 receptions. While Walker is not Gates and Locker is not Rivers, building on last year's success isn't out of the question.

Practices with wrist injury

|NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Jake Locker practiced Wednesday for the Tennessee Titans, and now the quarterback will see how his right wrist responds to a full session of throwing the ball. Locker isn't overly concerned, he expects to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. Ken Whisenhunt still wants to see how Locker feels Thursday after a full practice.
FFToday's Take: The Titans could only muster up 261 total yards against the Colts last Sunday with Charlie Whitehurst under center so fantasy owners should be hoping for Locker's return. Nonetheless, the entire passing game outside of TE Delanie Walker is a risky play against the Browns for week five.

Titans mulling options with two TEs hurt

|Delanie Walker (shoulder) and fellow tight end Taylor Thompson (knee) missed practice Wednesday. The potential loss of one or both of those tight ends prompted the Titans to re-sign tight end Chase Coffman on Monday. He was with the team in training camp and caught six preseason passes for 117 yards and a touchdown. Coffman understands that with both Walker and Thompson hurting, there is the chance he could see a decent amount of playing time right away. (The Tennessean)|
FFToday's Take: Delanie Walker is going to be re-evaluated as the week progresses but the team's decision to add Chase Coffman to the active roster is cause for concern. Considering the amount of injuries at tight end last week, Walker's owners would be wise to look into a backup option sooner than later.
