    Welcome to the deep dynasty profile for Jacksonville Jaguar Travon Walker.


    2022 Regular Season Recap

    The first overall selection started the 2022 season red hot, throwing some doubts that this reportedly raw talent actually wasn't. Walker has demonstrated that he could bend around the edge and get after the quarterback. He had a sack and tackle for loss against the Commanders in Week 1, along with a pass defended, an interception, and four total tackles. Hence, blowing up in a contest.

    We now know that the Commanders afford every opponent top 10 production anytime they take the field. Since then, Walker has shown us great NFL edge prowess, but it doesn't exactly translate into those golden sack-related numbers. Ending his regular season with just four and matched that in tackle for losses, leaving us needing more.

    For an edge rusher, combined tackles in each contest kept him well on our radars. And, not out of contention of being serviceable in deep formats as a lower-end DL2.

    Positives

    The Jaguars threw Walker into the fire, playing as a full-time edge rusher the entire season as a starter. That's the development under fire and huge going forward. Another thing I eluded to is those combined tackles in each contest. Although they were always consistent, they are very notable. Ask any manager who manages a higher-end profiled edge rusher like Myles Garrett or J.J. Watt.

    Another huge thing to remember is that this young man worked off of nothing more than superior athletic talent. According to his pre-draft reports by most pro analysts, we should have been lucky enough if we only saw half of what we did, playing time included, in fantasy football production.

    Negatives

    Let me know if you see some and why this is a hot take for Walker's deep dynasty profile. Raw or not, and with another year's worth of development, Travon Walker is the second-best second-year defensive edge rusher to target in 2023. I also think that he could push Aidan Hutchinson for the title easily next year with a bit of luck and great off-season coaching.

    1. […] If Walker’s not a defensive end or designated as an edge-rushing defensive lineman, as a pure LB play, he’s fallen for now in positional rankings. But not on this list. Here’s a huge amount of raw reasoning to have no doubts that if he’s a future deep dynasty star, it’s worth waiting on… (Read More) […]
