Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker has been officially ruled out in Week 5. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker (shoulder) was officially ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Minnesota Vikings, per John Glennon. Veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will start in place, as the near future of Locker remains uncertain.

Fantasy Analysis: This should not be a problem for fantasy players as Jake Locker is not owned in the majority of leagues. And those who decided to go with a Tennessee quarterback have no doubt already turned to Matt Hasselbeck. The extent of Locker's injury is unclear at this point, but it does not look like it will require surgery. However, if Hasselbeck can start collecting wins in Locker's absence, the team will not be in a rush to get him back in the starting lineup.
