Jake Locker decision could come Saturday, fantasy owners should wait and see

The Tennessee Titans hope to make a decision on Jake Locker by Saturday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report heading into a Week 7 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Head coach Mike Munchak said that the team hopes to make a decision on Locker's status by Saturday, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

Locker sprained his right knee on Sept. 29 and has been out since then. Ryan Fitzpatrick has started the past two games, but has played poorly, and the Titans went from 3-1 to 3-3. They host the 4-2 San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, and it's a game in which they really need Locker.

Locker's injury was pegged was a 4-to-6 week affair. He's either coming along much faster than anticipated or he's rushing back to help the Titans before they lose too many games. He was still on crutches as recently as Oct. 7. Fortunately, he has practiced every day this week.

Fantasy Impact: Locker likely wouldn't be poised for a big game even if he does play. His mobility should be limited and the 49ers have a great defense. That said, Fitzpatrick isn't exactly a great option either. Fantasy owners should wait it out through Saturday and see if the Titans make any kind of announcement, but unless he's your only option, he's looking like a smart option to avoid regardless.
