Jake Locker is looking to become a more patient quarterback for the Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jake Locker is looking to be a more patient quarterback for the Tennessee Titans, according to Pro Football Talk. Locker admitted that he has struggled at times this season when he has tried too hard to make a big play to spur what has so far been a shaky Titans offense.

Fantasy Impact: Locker has been dealt a bad hand, with wide receivers Kenny Britt and Nate Washington limited, and a porous offensive line providing little protection. Not to mention Chris Johnson's struggles. The second-year quarterback has had to try and do everything himself, and that has led to some rough numbers (two touchdowns, two interceptions) this season. Britt and Washington are approaching full strength, so at least Locker will have some better targets to throw to in due time. At this point, he can only be considered a fantasy option in deeper leagues, however.
