Delanie Walker gets back in the game
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Tight end Delanie Walker, who had offered only modest yardage since averaging 79.3 in the Titans' first four games, exploded for a career-high 155 on five catches Week 12 at Philadelphia, finishing second on the team with nine targets.

His connection with rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger seemed to get better as the game went on. He first earned his trust with a 68-yard connection early in the second quarter. Then, with the Titans in desperation mode in the fourth quarter, the two hooked up on passes of 26, 13 and 27 yards. Walker also had a 21-yard grab in the second quarter.

It was the second time in four starts that Mettenberger targeted Walker nine times in a game. Considering Walker was active for only three of those starts, the two look like they have a good thing going. And because Walker is one of those tight ends who can actually turn in a big play, as evidenced by his four of 20 yards or more in Week 12, the uptick in targets is an especially encouraging development in Fantasy.

He's back to being a must-own tight end, I'd say.

Zach Mettenberger making most of opportunity
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With a 43-24 loss to the Eagles Week 12 at Philadelphia, Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger is now 0-4 as an NFL starter. But judging by his numbers, playing from behind seems to suit him just fine.

He has thrown for multiple scores and at least 250 yards in three of those four starts, finishing with a career-high 345 yards in this one. He completed just 20 of 39 passes, but thanks to some big plays by tight end Delanie Walker and wide receiver Justin Hunter, he was still plenty productive.

And it's not like he's been depending on them all this time. Walker was inactive for Week 11 because of a concussion, and Hunter averaged just 32.0 yards in Mettenberger's first three starts. For a rookie, he does a fine job of spreading the ball around.

Of course, he doesn't have much of a supporting cast and still has to answer for that one ugly performance Week 10 at Baltimore. At a deep position, three solid games out of four probably doesn't move the needle in Fantasy. But in two-quarterback leagues, Mettenberger is looking like a sneaky pickup right now.

Wacky day for Justin Hunter all around
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

To say Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter was just lucky Week 12 at Philadelphia wouldn't be entirely fair. He had 10 targets, most on the team and four more than in his previous two games combined. But then again, of his 64 yards, 40 of them came on his touchdown grab in the second quarter -- a pass that was intended for him, yes, but caught on a deflection.

Perhaps it wouldn't have made a difference -- the deflection didn't dramatically change the flight of the ball, and Hunter made an athletic play on it -- but because it wasn't a clean pitch and catch, I don't know that it's any kind of endorsement of he and rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger's rapport.

After all, he didn't do much with his other nine targets. And when he got 10 targets in Mettenberger's first start Week 8 against Houston, he caught just four of them for 31 yards.

Hunter certainly has big-play potential and may some day develop a good connection with Mettenberger, but this performance, even with all the targets and the touchdown, isn't enough to move the needle in Fantasy.
