Report: Titans name QB Locker as starter

USA Today - [Full Article]

The Tennessee Titans are turning the page.

The team will anoint Jake Locker as its new starting quarterback Monday, per Jim Wyatt of The (Nashville) Tennessean.

Locker, the eighth pick of the 2011 draft, is coming off his first NFL start, an underwhelming performance Friday night at Tampa Bay where he completed four of 11 passes for 21 yards and threw an ugly INT courtesy of an ill-advised throw across his body, off his back foot and over the middle of the field.

Fantasy Impact: 

Locker is much more likely to be a better fantasy QB option than Matt Hasselbeck. He's got some tools to work with as well, like Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Nate Washington at WR and Jared Cook at TE. Locker is now a decent QB2 option, but the sky could be the limit for him once he builds experience.
