Fade Delanie Walker in Daily Fantasy Football This Week

New, comment

Editor's Note: SB Nation's partner FanDuel is running a $1.2M fantasy football league on Sunday. First place wins $100,000. Join now!

This one hurts a little bit.  I love Delanie Walker and have used him in at least one FanDuel lineup every week this year.  That has served me pretty well for most of the season, but this week is different.  Bill Belichick's calling card (is that still an expression?) is taking away a team's #1 option.  There is no doubt that Walker is the #1 option for the Titans.  That makes me nervous for this one.

If the Titans had another weapon on offense I wouldn't be as scared, but let's face it, they don't.  Dorial Green-Beckham has shown flashes, and will eventually develop into a guy that defenses have to account for, but Belichick is going to make DGB prove it before he takes any of the focus off Walker.  Marcus Mariota is going to have to be at the top of his game for the Titans to stay competitive in this one.

Delanie is $6,300 on FanDuel this week.  I would much rather play Jordan Reed at the same price.  You could also use Antonio Gates (playing in possibly his last game in San Diego #narrativestreet) at $5,800 or Benjamin Watson, who should be in a shootout on Monday Night, at $5,600.
