Kevin Walter a Waiver Wire Pickup | NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings
Just a season ago Houston Texans wide receiver Kevin Walter proved that he could help fantasy football owners. For the season Walter accumulated almost 900 yards receiving and posted eight touchdowns.
This season Walter has been quiet as many fantasy owners dropped him off their respective team(s) weeks ago.
Seeing Walter on fantasy waiver wires shouldn’t be surprising when you consider that in eight games this season, he has only posted 22 receptions and one touchdown.
Last weekend the Texans pro bowl tight end Owen Daniels unfortunately tore his ACL and is now done for the rest of the season. Daniels was a huge part of the Texans offense and now quarterback Matt Schaub will have to lean on other players to move the offense.
Sure, Andre Johnson will get his production because he’s to top target on the team and one of the best receivers in football.
Other than Johnson, Schaub will now turn to Walter and Jacoby Jones for more targets in the passing game.
Because of this need in the offense Walter now has a new lease on life and should become a fantasy relevant receiver once again.
Fantasy Football Ranking for Kevin Walter
The Texans have one of the best passing games in football, because of this, I suggest you take a look at picking up Walter on your waiver wire.
At this time, I wouldn’t recommend you start Walter, unless you are in need of a bye week fill in for a receiver. If Walter can find the grove he had in the Texans’ offense last year he will be a decent fantasy receiver for the rest of the season.
We just need to see him actually go out there and start playing to his capabilities.
