Jake Locker likely done for the year with foot injury; droppable in fantasy

Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans quarterback's injury-plagued career continued Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker appears to be done for the year after leaving Sunday's game with a foot injury. Locker was hurt on a non-contact injury in the second quarter of the game Sunday, which the Titans lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars, 29-27.

Locker had 24 passing yards and 18 rushing yards when he left the game. Early reports said his injury is most likely a Lisfranc injury. It is the second significant injury of Locker's injury, after he missed two games earlier in the year with a hip injury.

In Locker's absence, backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick took over, throwing for 264 yards and accounting for three touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Locker can obviously be dropped in all redraft leagues, and his keeper value is low enough that it's hard to imagine any teams holding on to him for that reason. It's a disappointing result for Locker, who had averaged 15 fantasy points in his last five starts before Sunday; a promising upcoming schedule seemed to herald good tidings for his season.

Fitzpatrick will likely be the Titans' starter down the stretch, and could have moderate fantasy value as a QB2 in leagues. Either way, it's a tough blow to Locker, the Titans, and fantasy owners.
