Walker heads into this week as the overall RB19 in half-PPR scoring formats. He has played in 12 games this season and has 720 yards with seven touchdowns on the ground. Walker has added 232 yards and another score on 24 receptions.

The Titans allow middle-of-the-road numbers to opposing running backs, ranking 16th out of 32 teams. Still, if Walker is active he can be started in 10-team leagues or larger.
