Titans | Limited practice for Jake Locker

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 14:45:42 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) was limited for the second day in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Bad news for Locker: Not only is he not healed enough to start in Week 8 against the Houston Texans, but the team announced that rookie Zach Mettenberger will start under center. Locker could return to the gig when he's fully healthy, but not if Mettenberger impresses. Locker is droppable in most fantasy leagues.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger named starter

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 11:43:47 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger has been named the starting quarterback for Week 8, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. QB Jake Locker will serve as the backup quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Mettenberger will be the third quarterback to start this season and could have a chance to keep the job if he plays well. Mettenberger costs $3,700 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider using a better option.

Titans | Jake Locker to start when healthy

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 10:23:21 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) will return to the starting quarterback job when he is healthy, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. The team has decided to start QB Zach Mettenberger in Week 8 against the Houston Texans with Locker still recovering from his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Locker everywhere in Week 8. If Mettenberger plays well against the Texans, the Titans could have a quarterback controversy on their hands. Mettenberger ($3,700; 7.4% of cap) isn't a wise gamble this weekend, even at the cheap price.

Titans | Jake Locker done in Nashville?

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 19:51:27 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is in the final year of his contract after the team declined to pick up a fifth-year option. He is reportedly making progress with his thumb injury, but the team plans to start rookie QB Zach Mettenberger in Week 8 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Locker was reportedly set to start, if healthy, this weekend, but it appears the organization has changed course this week. Avoid Locker in FantasyScore at this point.

Titans | Jake Locker limited Wednesday

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:21:49 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Locker just hasn't been able to stay healthy in his career, and he's been an inconsistent fantasy option. Don't waste the $4,000 on him at FantasyScore against the Houston Texans. Charlie Whitehurst could receive another start.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger an option at QB?

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:27:20 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) will start at quarterback when he's healthy, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. QB Charlie Whitehurst has filled in for Locker twice this year, but buzz continues to mount for QB Zach Mettenberger, the team's sixth-round draft pick this year. "We're trying to get him better as we go, knowing with the way it's gone for us at quarterback this year that's something that could happen at any time," Whisenhunt said. Whisenhunt doesn't sound concerned about playing Mettenberger too soon, either.

Fantasy Tip: Locker is up in the air for Week 8 against the Houston Texans. It's unknown if Whisenhunt would throw Mettenberger into the fire this week, but it seems unlikely. At this juncture, it's probably best to stay away from any Tennessee quarterback for your fantasy lineups.

Titans | Jake Locker to throw Tuesday

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:44:41 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is scheduled to throw Tuesday, Oct. 21, and the team will see how he responds Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Locker appears to have a chance to play in Week 8 but will need to show he is healthy enough to play. Charlie Whitehurst probably would start again this week if Locker is not able to play, but neither quarterback should be a starting option for owners.

Titans | Jake Locker expected for Week 8

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 08:09:14 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is expected to play in Week 8, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Fantasy Tip: Locker has a tough matchup against the Houston Texans next week and probably won't be a good option on FantasyScore. The team has a bye the following week, so it's not out of the question that they hold him out another week.

Titans | Jake Locker inactive

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 08:42:22 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is inactive Sunday, Oct. 19, for Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Charlie Whitehurst ($4,000; 8% of your cap) has a decent matchup against the Washington Redskins, but there are better options on FantasyScore.
