Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the QB position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Entering his third season, Locker is on the hot seat. The Tennessee triggerman tossed multiple touchdown passes in just two of 11 games played in 2012, and he clearly needs to show the team that he is franchise quarterback material. Locker is coming off surgery on his left (non-throwing) shoulder, but he is expected to be 100 percent for training camp. During the offseason, the Titans upgraded Locker’s supporting cast, adding receiver Justin Hunter in the draft and tight end Delanie Walker in free agency to go along with a receiver corps that includes Kenny Britt, the speedy Kendall Wright and Nate Washington. The offensive line also received a huge overhaul and will feature at least two new starters. However, it also looks like Tennessee is planning to utilize a run-heavy attack with Chris Johnson and newcomer Shonn Greene. Unless all the talk of a ground-and-pound attack is a smokescreen, it’s doubtful that we will see a big uptick in Locker’s passing stats. The athletic Locker has good mobility and a strong-but-sometimes-inaccurate arm. He looks like low-end fantasy QB2 material at best.
