Rookie quarterback Jake Locker played well in his NFL preseason debut, and that’s a big plus for the Tennessee Titans, coach Mike Munchak said Sunday.
But Munchak made it clear that the coaches are counting on veteran Matt Hasselbeck to start this season. So no matter how well Locker plays in the preseason, there’s probably nothing he can do to change their minds.
At least for now, Locker remains the future at the position.
We'll have to see how successful Hasselbeck is to begin the season, and if he remains the starter all year. Neither QB is worth getting too excited about at the moment as a fantasy starter, or even as someone taking up a roster spot on your team. We rank Hasselbeck 29th, which puts him a low end QB3. Locker, of course, will have value in deeper leagues or dynasty leagues, but in standard leagues, keep them both on the waiver wire for now.
