Matt Hasselbeck to start again in Week 9: Fantasy implications

Scott Cunningham

Matt Hasselbeck will draw the start once again with Jake Locker still rehabbing. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that Tennessee Titans QB Matt Hasselbeck will once again get the start in Week 9 against the Chicago Bears. Hasselbeck has been playing in place of Jake Locker, who had been sitting out since Week 4 with a dislocated shoulder.

Hasselbeck has been a fine replacement, going 2-2 while throwing for 1,167 yards, six TDs and four INTs.

Fantasy Impact: The team still doesn't know when Locker will be ready to play again, but they have emphatically stated that he will get the starting job back when healthy, despite Hasselbeck's decent performance.

Hasselbeck has been an okay, if uninspiring, QB2 play in fantasy, but he'll have a tough matchup against the Bears. I recommend benching him if you have better alternatives.
