Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak praised quarterback Jake Locker, but said the wide receiver position is uncertain with Kenny Britt's potential suspension still looming. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak praised quarterback Jake Locker, but said the wide receiver position is uncertain with Kenny Britt's potential suspension still looming, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. Locker has displayed flashes of the ability that made him the team's 2011 first round pick, but he could be short a weapon with Britt's knee issues and off the field concerns. Marc Mariani also went down with a broken leg, so the position is thinning. Locker did show nice chemistry with rookie Kendall Wright, however.

Analysis: Locker makes for an intriguing sleeper in fantasy leagues due to his ability to pick up yards on the ground. He could be without Britt, but he has looked solid in preseason action regardless. His early chemistry with Kendall Wright is obviously a good sign for those two moving forward. Locker will be a nice backup in all fantasy formats.
