If the Patriots are going to slow down the Titans passing game, Delanie Walker is the player they have to pay attention to. Despite having a top pick in Corey Davis and veterans such as Rishard Matthews and Eric Decker at wide receiver, Walker is the Titans main man in the passing game.
Walker led the Titans in receiving, catching 74 passes on 111 targets for 807 yards. He also caught three touchdown passes. He is the safety blanket for Marcus Mariota and who he looks to when he needs to make a play. That was on full display against the Chiefs.
Like many games this season, Walker was the Titans leading receiver. He caught six passes for 74 yards, both team highs. Despite being 33-years old, Walker still shows up when he is needed most.
He is a player the Patriots have to identify whenever he is on the field. The Titans will move him all over the field, lining him up at tight end, fullback, H-back and even split out wide on occasion. Walker is a very versatile player and the Titans will deploy him in a number of different ways.
