Jake Locker (Lisfranc) ahead of schedule

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

The Titans begin training camp on July 26. Titans QB Jake Locker (Lisfranc) should be even better physically by then, but mentally he should be way ahead of the game. He said he's up to speed in the new offense, and has a good chemistry with his receivers.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt has been been impressed with Locker's work ethic and approach with teammates.

"Jake works hard," the coach said. "He's done a great job as far as studying the offense and understanding his reads. He's really done a good job with a lot of the little things – his footwork, his techniques. We've seen a lot of improvement there and that's really exciting to see. … The team really rallies around him, and that is an important quality to have."

Fantasy Impact: 

Locker has averaged 15.1 FP in 16 career starts. That extrapolates to 241 points over a 16-game season, or about what Ryan Tannehill scored as the #16 QB in 2013. Health has been his biggest problem, but if he can stay upright, he could grow in Ken Whisenhunt’s offense.
