Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is expected to get at least one more start as Jake Locker continues to recover from a shoulder injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is expected to get at least one more start as Jake Locker continues to recover from a shoulder injury. Hasselbeck led the Titans to a 26-23 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football in Week 6, moving the ball down the field with efficiency and limiting the turnovers.

Locker and Hasselbeck were mired in a quarterback controversy this preseason, but Locker's injury has opened the door for the 37-year old veteran to get another shot at starting. The upset victory over Pittsburgh will help his case for staying in the lineup.

Fantasy Impact: Matt Hasselbeck provides very little fantasy value, unless you are in a deep two quarterback league. His presence under center makes Kenny Britt slightly less valuable, although Britt did catch a touchdown from Hasselbeck last night.

Jake Locker is the more talented of the two quarterbacks, but he has been wildly inconsistent early in his career. Kendall Wright and Kenny Britt owners would like to see the young gunslinger back in the lineup soon, because his strong arm opens up the offense a bit more.
