Chargers | SD backup QB battle rages on

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 21:41:15 -0700

San Diego Chargers QBs Kellen Clemens and Zach Mettenberger are battling for the No. 2 job behind starter QB Philip Rivers. Clemens completed eight of his 15 passes for 96 yards, while Mettenberger completed two of his eight passes for just 22 yards and an interception while he was sacked twice in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: At this point Clemens might have a leg up on Mettenberger for the No. 2 job, but neither is worth a roster spot in fantasy football unless disaster strikes and Rivers goes down for a while.

NFL | Zach Mettenberger had two other claims

Wed, 18 May 2016 07:07:38 -0700

San Diego Chargers QB Zach Mettenberger had failed waiver claims from the Cincinnati Bengals and New York Giants placed on him before the Chargers claimed him.

Fantasy Tip: Mettenberger will have no fantasy value in '16 unless something happens to Philip Rivers.

Chargers | Claim Zach Mettenberger

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:27:58 -0700

Free-agent QB Zach Mettenberger (Titans) was claimed by the San Diego Chargers Tuesday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Mettenberger does reunite with his former head coach in Ken Whisenhunt, but he'll ride the bench as long as Phillip Rivers is healthy. Mettenberger can be left on waivers in traditional leagues.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger waived

Mon, 16 May 2016 06:47:04 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was waived Monday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: It's not too far-fetched to believe that Mettenberger could land in a spot to compete for a starting job with the saturation of the position around the league. He was 20-for-28 for 242 yards, two scores and two picks in December against the New England Patriots and showed flashes in relief roles. Keep an eye on his landing spot.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger questionable

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 12:00:42 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger (forearm) is questionable to return in Week 17 with a forearm injury.

Fantasy Tip: Marcus Mariota is already out, so Alex Tanney will take over the starting quarterback reins with Mettenberger sidelined now. There's a reason Tanney is a third-string quarterback, though. Lessen your expectations for Delanie Walker and other Tennessee pass-catchers as long as Mettenberger is out.

Titans | Dorial Green-Beckham out of sync

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 09:12:56 -0800

Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham went without a catch for the first time in six weeks in Week 16, and he and QB Zach Mettenberger looked to be out of sync. Mettenberger targeted Green-Beckham on just three of his 51 pass attempts.

Fantasy Tip: You have to wonder how Green-Beckham ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will fare again in the season finale against the Indianapolis Colts with Mettenberger at the helm again. The plus side is the Colts are a great fantasy matchup for receivers, so DGB should at least be a worthy flex play in daily formats.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger starting Sunday

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 09:09:25 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger will start in Week 16 against the Houston Texans with QB Marcus Mariota (knee) already ruled out. Mariota will remain in meetings and watch practices during the week.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans have come on stronger in the second half of the season as they make their playoff push. Mettenberger ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has a strong arm but hasn't shown much consistency in his starts with the Titans, leaving him as a quarterback to avoid in all fantasy formats.

Titans | Marcus Mariota has sprained knee

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 05:49:26 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) is believed to have suffered a minor knee sprain in Week 15, according to a source. With two games left, QB Zach Mettenberger could be under center the rest of the way.

Fantasy Tip: Mettenberger faces the Houston Texans in Week 16 if Mariota can't go. There isn't a lot of fantasy upside with a start that risky at this stage.

Titans | Zach Mettenberger effective in relief

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 15:50:35 -0800

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was 20 of 28 for 242 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions Sunday, Dec. 20, in a 33-16 loss to the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Stand by to see if Mettenberger ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) plays next week. Marcus Mariota has a knee injury and his status is not certain, meaning Mettenberger could earn the start.
