Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) will be ready to throw without limitations during organized team activities that start next week. He underwent surgery around 20 weeks ago to fix his non-throwing shoulder that popped out of joint multiple times last year. The team will be installing a run-first offense this year under offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. "He plays sometimes with a linebacker mentality, and I know it's sometimes for the effect. He wants his teammates to see how tough he is, but he needs to learn to take care of himself. You know his speed and the ability to run and throw on the run is something we want to take advantage of," Loggains said.
Fantasy Tip: Locker should be considered a risky backup selection this year based on injury concerns and the team's changing offensive philosophy. However, if he can stay healthy, Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and this year's draft choice, Justin Hunter, could provide plenty of targets for Locker.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak hinted that running could become a bigger part of QB Jake Locker's arsenal in 2013. "Jake brings that dimension to the game, but you have to be smart about it," Munchak said. "You want to take advantage of all the skills he does have, though it's hard to survive if you're running it all the time. So it has to be a happy medium, and that's what we'll try to find."
Fantasy Tip: Locker is expected to be fully recovered from a shoulder injury in time for training camp. He enters 2013 as a solid No. 2 fantasy option at his position, and running would add some appeal.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said QB Jake Locker will enter 2013 as the starting quarterback, even after the addition of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Munchak wants Fitzpatrick to push Locker, but believes the competition will make Locker a better player. "I think (Fitzpatrick) understands his role," Muchak said. "It's Jake's team. It's Jake's time. Jake's going to be our guy. We made that decision last year after training camp. Ryan has been in this situation before … He's going to compete with (Locker) and I think he'll help him a lot throughout the week. It will be another great mentor for him. And we feel he can win if he has to play. That's how we felt with Matt Hasselbeck also."

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker said he does not believe he has accuracy issues in his passing game. "I don't," Locker said. "I never have. At the end of the day, wins and losses is what I think everybody cares about and obviously we didn't get that done either. But I think for me there's situations I think when I had guys around me, sometimes I just need to become a little more comfortable with a little bit of noise in front of me and that's things that I will work on this offseason. But I don't think that's a problem, and I think just continue to work and get better and who knows if that number will go up? I hope the wins ... go up."

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains will incorporate some things that will play to QB Jake Locker's talents, namely his ability to throw on the move and scramble. That might mean even exploring some of the pistol or read-option into the playbook on occasion. "We're going to do just like every team in the league and look at clubs like Seattle and Washington. We're still very early in the process of building this offense, but we're definitely gonna look at all that stuff, just like every team in the NFL is gonna do," Loggains said.
