Jake Locker took all first-team reps in practice, set to start Sunday: Fantasy implications

Bob Levey

Jake Locker took all the first-team reps in practice this week and, barring a setback, is ready to make his return to the starting lineup this week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (shoulder) is ready to go. According to ESPN's Ed Werder, Locker took every first-team rep in practice this week and is set to make his return this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Locker missed the past five games with a fractured shoulder suffered back in Week 3.

The Titans went 3-4 in Locker's absence, with Matt Hasselbeck under center.

Fantasy Impact: You can go ahead and drop Hasselbeck now, who was serviceable but never had the upside of Locker. He was having a nice start to the season before the injury, and hopes to end the season on a high note.

Locker will have a tough fantasy matchup against Miami's defense this week, and will likely be rusty after missing so much time. I'd hold off on starting him this week; he has a much better fantasy matchup against the Jaguars in Week 12.
