Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Jake Locker

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

After a poor fantasy day despite the team scoring 28 points a week ago, can the Titans quarterback improve his performance against the league's worst team? We break down the fantasy implications.

In six games this season, Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker has yet to put everything together into one great fantasy performance. His three-touchdown game featured only 149 passing yards. His two rushing touchdowns came in two games with a combined one passing score. His 300-plus-yard game added his first interception of the year. Sunday, he looks to have a big outing against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Locker missed a pair of games in Weeks 5 and 6, against the league's two best defenses. In the six games he has played, he is averaging right around 200 passing yards a game, and has eight touchdowns to go with three interceptions on the season. All three of his interceptions have come in the two games since his return from injury.

Fantasy impact: The Jaguars are the 12th-best team in the NFL in passing yards against, but that is largely because they have typically fallen behind in a hurry, and offenses turn to the rush late in games; Jacksonville is tied for second-worst in the NFL (behind the Dallas Cowboys) in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks, with 19.5 fantasy points a game.

Locker doesn't have a super play-making receiver on his offense, but Kendall Wright and Nate Washington are fine, and running back Chris Johnson also has a pair of receiving scores this season. With guys like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers sidelined this week, Locker could easily return QB1 value.
