Matt Hasselbeck QB IND Oct 15 '129 Comments

Titans coach Mike Munchak announced Monday that Matt Hasselbeck will start at quarterback in Week 7 against the Bills.

Munchak insisted Jake Locker remains the Titans' starter when healthy, but he'll get one more week to rest his twice-dislocated shoulder. The Titans believe Locker is on track to start in Week 8 against Indianapolis. 37-year-old Hasselbeck is a crafty veteran capable of getting the football to Kenny Britt, which is pretty much all fantasy owners can ask for. Hasselbeck just isn't much of a standalone fantasy QB, even against a bad Buffalo defense. On the season, he has a 4:4 TD-to-INT ratio, 60.2-percent completion rate, and 5.9 YPA in four appearances (two starts).

I think Hasselbeck can throw 3 TD's this week! Or maybe more. A couple to Britt and one to Jared Cook.

The worry is that Hasselbeck will throw 2-3 interceptions.

He's my bye-week replacement that just got picked up off waivers to cover Matt Ryan.

Same. Ryan has been awesome this year except last week. I've been stashing Britt who had the "worst game of his career" last week and still caught a td. Now that hasselbecks got his best receiver back, he will play well.

Hasselbeck against BUF or Cutler againt DET???

If you have to choose I'd go Cutler - It's tough to put your line-up on the line with becks - his arm strength just isn't there anymore - he does have a nice match up though and 220 w/2 tds is not out of the question

Im starting him over Stafford. I just don't think stafford would survive against the bears.

I'm considering picking up Hasselbeck and starting him over Stafford, too...

Fitzpatrick just became free in my league. Which way to go?

I'd go with Fitz there.
