Titans | Jake Locker undergoes MRI

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 13:27:58 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (wrist) underwent an MRI Monday, Sept. 22, on the wrist injury he suffered in the team's Week 3 game. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said he is not sure if Locker will be able to play in Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Charlie Whitehurst would get the start if Locker is not able to play. Even if Locker is able to play, he is not a great option to use in fantasy leagues. Owners should avoid using a Titans quarterback this week.

Titans | Jake Locker more patient

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 14:22:31 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker stayed in the pocket in Sunday's game more frequently than he has throughout his career. In fact, Locker didn't attempt a pass from outside the pocket, according to ESPN. Locker's patience helped him tally 266 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: If Locker can maintain his composure in the pocket instead of rolling outside of the pocket as he's been prone to do in his injury-riddled career, he could end up being a very pleasant surprise in 2014. He's definitely worth a shot this week against a suspect Dallas Cowboys secondary for $6,400 on FantasyScore.

Tennesse Titans QB Jake Locker said the offensive rhythm was better in practice Monday, July 28. Locker said he's focusing on accuracy during training camp as head coach Ken Whisenhunt has challenged him in that area.

Fantasy Tip: Locker is too much of an injury risk to be considered for QB1 status. Draft him as a streaming option or backup.

Titans | Coach says Jake Locker has good footwork

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 10:25:30 -0700

Tennessee Titans quarterbacks coach John McNulty said QB Jake Locker uses good posture in the pocket and plays on his toes, which helps him move from one target to another. "Once you step to one guy, you can't just step over. You've got to be in that football position and move your whole operation. I think that helps him, he plays kind of up on his toes, he's always in a football position. Some of these big guys are straight up and down and when their first guy is not there, their foot is planted and they just step to the next guy. It's really as much getting your shoulders and hips in line as it is your feet. The way he plays, he's able to do that," McNulty said.

Fantasy Tip: Locker likely will be the team's starting quarterback this upcoming season but probably should not be seen as more than a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Titans | Looking for Jake Locker to be pocket passer

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 12:47:42 -0700

Tennessee Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt is looking to make QB Jake Locker a pocket passer in his offense even though mobility is one of Locker's strengths. The team will still use rollouts and bootlegs at times but most of Locker's passes will come out of the pocket. Whisenhunt has been happy with how well Locker has picked up the offense this offseason. "Jake works hard," Whisenhunt said. "He's done a great job as far as studying the offense and understanding his reads. He's really done a good job with a lot of little things - his footwork, his techniques."

Titans | OC happy with Jake Locker's offseason

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 18:45:57 -0700

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Jason Michael said he has been happy with how QB Jake Locker (foot) performed this offseason. "From day one, he's worked his butt off from rehabilitation of his foot to jumping in the playbook, to how he's gone about his preparation on the field. It's been a frustrating go at times with his foot, but he's never shown it. He's a poised man. I'm excited about working with him. He does some good things that we've already seen," Michael said.

Titans | Jake Locker making progress

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 10:53:34 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (foot) said an indicator of his progress this offseason has been connecting visualizations with verbiage. Locker said he'll be really comfortable with the new offense once he's able to "paint a picture" of a play. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said it's good Locker is feeling more comfortable, but he's not there yet.

Fantasy Tip: The main question surrounding Locker hasn't been comfort in the offense, it's been health. Whether he feels more comfortable or not, we're still not comfortable drafting him as more than a low-end QB2.
