The team turned to youngster Zach Mettenberger as their starter in Week 8, and that may turn out to be a permanent promotion.

QB Jake Locker will serve as the backup quarterback. Our View: We're a little excited to see what Mettenberger can do. The strong-armed quarterback has some wrinkles to his delivery but could become a solid starter down the road. Certainly they might as well see what he can do. You should keep him away from your lineup at all costs though as we think the Wooderson-from-Dazed-and-Confused lookalike will be a low-point earner this week.
