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.

Tennessee Titans QB Jake Locker (thumb) is in the final year of his contract after the team declined to pick up a fifth-year option. He is reportedly making progress with his thumb injury, but the team plans to start rookie QB Zach Mettenberger in Week 8 against the Houston Texans.
Fantasy Tip: Locker was reportedly set to start, if healthy, this weekend, but it appears the organization has changed course this week. Avoid Locker in FantasyScore at this point.

The Tennessee Titans have been fielding calls from teams for WR Nate Washington, who recently lost his starting job to WR Justin Hunter. Washington is in the final year of a six-year, $26.8 million contract. He is making $4.8 million this season.
Fantasy Tip: As long as Washington is in Nashville, FantasyScore owners will want to avoid him. However, if he should land in a more favorable spot with another team, he could re-emerge as a viable fantasy option.

Fantasy Tip: Locker just hasn't been able to stay healthy in his career, and he's been an inconsistent fantasy option. Don't waste the $4,000 on him at FantasyScore against the Houston Texans. Charlie Whitehurst could receive another start.

Fantasy Tip: Greene didn't play last week and could be questionable in Week 8 against the Houston Texans. Even at a FantasyScore price of $3,100 (6.2% of cap), he isn't an attractive option. Bishop Sankey ($4,400) has become the main back, but he hasn't impressed, and the matchup against the Texans isn't ideal.

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.
