Wide Receiver Edmonton Eskimos

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis
Walker logged four receptions for 36 yards in the Eskimos' 16-15 win over the Argonauts on Friday.
After a stellar Week 1 effort when he posted eight catches for 176 yards and a touchdown, it's essentially been downhill for Walker. He does have three touchdowns overall in his first five games, but he hasn't topped 67 receiving yards since the opener. In the interim, D'haquille Williams continues to see an overwhelming amount of targets from Mike Reilly, and Walker hasn't been able to make many of his trademark plays downfield to make up for his drop in volume. However, the former Texas A & M Aggie seemingly has too much speed and rapport with Reilly to continue underwhelming for much longer, and perhaps the Week 6 bye will allow him to reincorporate into the offense.
