Matt Hasselbeck will likely be the starter for the Tennessee Titans because of Sunday's shoulder injury suffered by starter Jake Locker. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Tennessee Titans will likely to turn to Matt Hasselbeck as their starting quarterback in Week 5 following the injury to starter Jake Locker, according to Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports. Locker left Sunday's game after dislocating his left shoulder. Locker injured the same shoulder in Week 1 but there is concern that the injury is worse this time. Locker was scheduled to have an MRI on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Locker threw for nearly 380 yards in Week 3 and had really jumped up on the radars of fantasy owners. The injury may leave some owners looking for a replacement but Hasselbeck is probably not the direction they will want to go. Owners should monitor updates on Locker to see how long they'll need to plan to be without him.
