Jake Locker throws 2 TDs in fantasy return from injury

Mike Ehrmann

Jake Locker went 9-for-21 passing for 122 yards and two touchdowns during the Titans' win over the Dolphins on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jake Locker went 9-for-21 passing for 122 yards and two touchdowns during the Tennessee Titans' win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. He also rushed for 36 yards on four carries. Locker was playing his first game since suffering a shoulder injury in Week 4.

Locker spread his nine completions out among seven different pass catchers. Jared Cook and Kendall Wright were the beneficiaries of his two scores. Kenny Britt was the Titans' leading receiver with two receptions for 36 yards off of six targets.

Fantasy Impact: Locker looked rusty in his first game back from a long layoff, but thankfully he had a talented corps of red-zone weapons to bail him out for fantasy owners. His 36 yards rushing also helped make what could have been shaky outing palatable.

Locker will have another week to rest with the Titans on a bye in Week 11. After that, he will take on a Jacksonville Jaguars secondary that has been torched all season. He could be a solid fantasy starter going forward this season.
