    Thursday, January 11, 10:16 AM

    Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker came out of his slump last Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs, catching six passes for 74 yards in the comeback win. Walker's usage had been fading late in the regular season, but the Titans made an effort to get him more involved in the critical playoff game. Expect a similar performance from Walker again this week with the Titans facing a second straight road elimination game. While he lacks the upside of some of the other tight end options this week, Walker is once again a strong play in DFS formats.
