|Delanie Walker proved once again that tight ends paired with rookie quarterbacks are a solid bet to make for fantasy owners. Of course other factors weighed in to create the perfect recipe for a 20-percent increase in targets as well. For instance, the lack of any semblance of a ground game or reliable target among the wide receivers meant that when the offense needed a first down it looked for Walker. And look for him they did as he posted career highs in receptions (94) and yardage (1088) in 2015. If things go according to plan, that wonít be the case this year. As the offense has gotten deeper and stronger, the need for Walker to be the one stop cure for every situation has been spread out-especially inside the twenty-yard line. The team now has two capable running backs to turn to when in the red zone. Additionally, the Titans would be unwise to keep DHB on the sidelines in those packages as well. All indications are pointing to more blocking and less receiving in the Titansí ball control scheme. Be careful not to set your expectations for Walker too high in 2016 but donít sell him short. As Marcus Mariotaís favorite safety valve, he remains one of the most targeted TEs in the NFL.

FFToday's Take: It will be hard to trust QB Marcus Mariota without one of his top weapons. Rookie WR Tajae Sharpe should see an increase in targets. Expect more usage out of running backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.

|The Tennessee Titans agreed to terms with veteran wide receiver Andre Johnson on Friday.
The Titans have not disclosed terms of the deal, but sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Johnson will sign a two-year contract. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: The Titans have a volatile receiving corps (Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter, Dorial Green-Beckham, Rishard Matthews) with the most dependable being TE Delanie Walker. It's difficult to see Johnson making a significant impact given how slow he looked last year with Colts in limited duty.
