Smith can produce and Fins defense is under manned, but they can surprise and he is on the road.
Locker still has upside but last week we saw he's not there yet. Cincy on the road shouldn't yield great results.
  
Jon Collins

I'm not writing off Locker, and still think he is appealing in the right matchup, its just that matchup is not a road contest against the Bengals.
  
Staff Rankings

He's got 1 touchdown and 3 interceptions on the season. Not looking too good for Week 3.
Threw for 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions against the sad-sack Cowboys defense. What do you think that he will do against the Bengals? I'll tell you. Not much. Keep Locker on the bench if you own him.
