Jake Locker, QB, Titans
|QB - #26||TEN||Injured Reserve||4 years||25||6'3||234|
2013 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Oct-22-2013 by Rob Warner
UPDATE (10/22): Locker missed two games (weeks five and six) with a hip injury be returned under center for the seven loss to San Francisco passing for 326 yards and two touchdowns. Through five games, Locker is averaging just 209 YPG with eight touchdowns and only one interception. He's added 18 carries for 127 yards and could make for decent bye week filler in week 10 (vs Jacksonville) and week 14 (vs Denver).
PROFILE: The 8th overall pick of the 2011 draft has yet to justify his draft slot and could find himself in a camp battle with former Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Locker suffered shoulder injuries that limited him to 11 games in 2012 and he topped 20 fantasy points just once. An improved offensive line will likely lead to a greater focus on the run as the Titans would be wise to utilize Locker as more of a game manager (had just four games with 35+ pass attempts in 2012). Locker does possess moderate dual threat ability, as he finished with 40 carries for 291 yards (27 YPG) last season. The addition of rookie WR Justin Hunter paired with Kendall Wright and knucklehead Kenny Britt form a group of solid weapons, but Locker will need to overcome accuracy questions and stay healthy in order to be considered anything more than a low end QB2 in his 3rd NFL season.
