Titans | Mixed results for Zach Mettenberger

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 14:15:39 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger turned the ball over twice (one interception, one fumble lost) in his first career start in Week 8 against the Houston Texans, but he also threw for 299 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Mettenberger is likely to continue starting, as the team wants to see what it has in the rookie from LSU. FantasyScore owners might find him to be a useful QB2 if the price is right and the matchup is favorable.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger could open up offense

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 20:18:13 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger prides himself in his strong arm, WR Kendall Wright said, and the team is hoping that Mettenberger can bring a new element to a passing attack that ranks 27th in the NFL in completed passes of 20 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Although Mettenberger ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is too big of a risk to trust at FantasyScore in Week 8, he could boost the values of speedy receivers Justin Hunter ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) and Nate Washington ($3,000, 6% of cap). Hunter is probably the better gamble because of the chemistry he showed with Mettenberger during the preseason.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger named starter

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 11:43:47 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger has been named the starting quarterback for Week 8, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. QB Jake Locker will serve as the backup quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Mettenberger will be the third quarterback to start this season and could have a chance to keep the job if he plays well. Mettenberger costs $3,700 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider using a better option.

Titans | Jake Locker to start when healthy

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 10:23:21 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) will return to the starting quarterback job when he is healthy, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. The team has decided to start QB Zach Mettenberger in Week 8 against the Houston Texans with Locker still recovering from his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Locker everywhere in Week 8. If Mettenberger plays well against the Texans, the Titans could have a quarterback controversy on their hands. Mettenberger ($3,700; 7.4% of cap) isn't a wise gamble this weekend, even at the cheap price.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger to start in Week 8

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 19:52:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Tennessee Titans plan to start QB Zach Mettenberger in Week 8 against the Houston Texans, a source familiar with the situation said Wednesday, Oct. 22. Indications are Mettenberger was informed of the decision Tuesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: It appears the coaching staff has tired of Jake Locker's frequent injuries, and Charlie Whitehurst isn't the answer. At $3,700 (or 7.4 percent of the cap), the rookie Mettenberger might be worth using as a QB2 in FantasyScore, if only to save valuable salary to spread across all other positions. The Texans rank 26th in passing defense, so Mettenberger has a favorable matchup for his first NFL start.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger an option at QB?

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:27:20 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) will start at quarterback when he's healthy, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. QB Charlie Whitehurst has filled in for Locker twice this year, but buzz continues to mount for QB Zach Mettenberger, the team's sixth-round draft pick this year. "We're trying to get him better as we go, knowing with the way it's gone for us at quarterback this year that's something that could happen at any time," Whisenhunt said. Whisenhunt doesn't sound concerned about playing Mettenberger too soon, either.

Fantasy Tip: Locker is up in the air for Week 8 against the Houston Texans. It's unknown if Whisenhunt would throw Mettenberger into the fire this week, but it seems unlikely. At this juncture, it's probably best to stay away from any Tennessee quarterback for your fantasy lineups.
