Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the TE position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
In case you missed the news, Walker suffered a concussion last week during Tennessee’s loss to Indianapolis. At last check late Wednesday morning, his Week 14 playing status was unknown. We’ll update his projections later in the week if it is warranted. If Walker plays, he would have a very good matchup against a Denver defense that allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to the tight end position during the last month. UPDATE 12/7 Walker (concussion) did not receive medical clearance to hit the practice field this week. Heading into Saturday morning, he was listed as QUESTIONABLE. Walker’s inability to practice is obviously a bad sign. Since his game will kickoff late Sunday afternoon, fantasy owners may need to consider using an option from one of the early games as a replacement for him.
With Jared Cook now in St. Louis the Tennessee Titans were left with a hole at tight end, and the team looked to fill that void with the signing of free agent Delanie Walker. Walker is a better blocker than receiver, and it’s hard to get too excited about a player who has never had more than 30 receptions or topped 350 yards in seven NFL seasons, but we could see career numbers from Walker in 2013 if for no other reason than he’s never been a full-time player before.
