Jake Locker Injury Update: Shoulder has healed; back on fantasy radar

Bob Levey

Jake Locker will be back this week to take on the Dolphins. Should you risk starting him or even pick him up?

Jake Locker (shoulder) had a practiced in full on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and is listed as probable to start against the Dolphins. He will start for the first time since September.

Locker has dealt with left shoulder problems twice this season, but he has played well with a passer rating of 90.2. His starts are 781 yards, four TDs and two picks in a little over three games.

Fantasy Impact: Locker was an interesting asset in fantasy leagues since he can use his legs as well as hitting his loaded receiving corps. Plus, the Titans also have a horrendous defense, so Locker would have to sling it a little.

It's going to be tough to start him because he might struggle in his return. Not to mention there's a chance of an aggravation. He's still a nice stash for any owner not happy with his/her QB situation.
