Though expected back from injury this week, Locker will not start this weekend against the Texans. The Titans have also declined Locker's 5th year option and he is set to be a free agent at the end of the season. (Source: NFL.com
Fantasy Impact: It appears to be the end of the line for Jake Locker in Tennessee. The Titans quarterbacks are a mess and are best avoided.

QB Jake Locker connected on 8 of 11 passes for 79 yards with a touchdown and he added a rushing touchdown with 34 rushing yards on four carries. He was knocked out of the game in the 2nd quarter after a sack injured his throwing hand. He missed last week's game against the Colts after suffering an injury to his wrist.
Fantasy Impact: Locker looked impressive before he was forced from the game against the Browns. Locker is no stranger to injuries. In fact, his hot starts are all-too-often cut short due to injury. Keep an eye on Locker's injury status as next Sunday's game draws closer. Locker could be considered a solid spot start against the lowly Jaguars if your fantasy team is struggling to find a QB.

Tennessean.com writer Jim Wyatt reports QB Jake Locker has been diagnosed with a wrist strain. His MRI didn't reveal any structural damage, but his status for Sunday's game against the Colts is still in question. QB Charlie Whitehurst would get the start should Locker be unable to play.

Fantasy Impact: Jake Locker has been riddled with injuries since he was drafted by the Titans 8th overall in 2011. Healthy or not, Locker hasn't shown the consistency to be a reliable fantasy QB. He is no longer worth a roster spot on any fantasy team. Waiver wire QBs Kirk Cousins, Blake Bortles, and Teddy Bridgewater have more upside than Locker.

QB Jake Locker threw for 185 yards and two interceptions in a 33-7 loss against the Bengals. He was unable to score a touchdown, and it was his second consecutive game with two picks.
Fantasy Impact: Locker hasn't improved in Whisenhunt's offense like fantasy owner hoped he would after playing great in the season opener. In fact, it looks as though he is quickly regressing, and may not be starting much longer if he continues perform poorly. It's best to seek other options if Locker is on your fantasy team.

QB Jake Locker struggled badly in the first half of Sunday's contest against the Cowboys. He played better in the second half, but it wasn't enough to lead a comeback, as the Titans lose their home opener 26-10. Locker completed 18 of his 34 passes for 234 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.
Fantasy Impact: Locker displayed more of the accuracy isses he has struggled with throughout his NFL career. It was a particularly disappointing performance because he played so well against in Kansas City last week. Yet, this is the type of inconsistency fantasy owners have come to expect from Locker. He failed to prove he could become a valuable fantasy QB on Sunday, but it doesn't mean he won't have good performances this season. It only means you probably won't be able to predict when he will play well. He isn't reliable enough to start for your fantasy team. Even if he has enticing matchups.

Jake Locker had a great season opener in Kansas City, completing 22 of his 33 passes for 266 yards and 2 touchdowns. Locker had zero turnovers while also rushing for 14 yards.
Fantasy Impact: This is exactly what fantasy owners wanted to see from Locker in Ken Whisenhunt's system. He looked crisp and accurate throwing the ball from the pocket, and he didn't take any unnecessary hits when he scrambled. It's obvious Locker also has playmakers to deliver the ball to with Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter showing improvement. Locker could be a potential fantasy starter next week against the Cowboys lackluster defense at home.

Jake Locker started the Titans' first preseason game vs. the Packers on Saturday night at LP Field. He was replaced by Charlie Whitehurst after a first quarter in which Locker went 1 of 2 for 5 yards.
Fantasy Impact: It was a bit surprising to see Locker trotting out for another drive near the end of the first quarter, given the conditions at LP Field during a heavy rainstorm. Locker was able to escape the game unscathed, although the Titans weren't able to do much on offense with him at the helm.

Jake Locker appears to be recovering well from his Lisfranc surgery, having participated in all OTA's this offseason, along with the team's minicamp in June. This will be the third OC Locker's played for in four years, but Locker says "I feel very comfortable with where we are." (Source: The Tennessean
Fantasy Impact: Entering his contract year, this is really a make or break year for Locker. He'll need to learn Jason Michael's system very quickly to fall under Ken Whisenhunt's good graces. Otherwise, this might be the last year that we see Jake Locker as a starter in the NFL.
