Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker is a hot commodity on the Week 9 fantasy football waiver wire and for good reason. With bye weeks looming and usually solid quarterbacks like Tom Brady struggling, fantasy players are looking for other options and Locker is one. He is owned in only 18% of all fantasy leagues. Firmly entrenched as the Titans starter, Locker has been surprisingly effective in 2013.
Fantasy spin: Locker is a good option if you need a replacement at the quarterback position. The Titans return from their bye week and face the St. Louis Rams in Week 9. Locker should be healthy and ready to enter the easy portion of the Titans schedule. A dual threat quarterback, Locker has thrown for 1047 yards and eight touchdowns while adding 127 rushing yards and one touchdown while missing two games. Pick him up while you can.
