Mettenberger vs mariota or Winston. He fails they draft one of the 2. Makes sense to play him to see what they've got going into 2015.

Low expectations, but Wright and Hunter both could see an uptick in production with Mett's arm

Especially Hunter. Wright is great at the short game while Hunter has the skills to excel down the field. If you are a Hunter owner this is the best news you could hear.

I'm semi skeptical of his long term viability and will leave him on the wire outside of 2QB/superflex or super deep (16 team) leagues.

Might help Hunter in the long term but I'm not trusting him this week. This makes me most excited for the Texans defense this week.

I hope he does well, which is why I picked him up for my team, but I'm expecting more of a Case Keenum situation from last year. The Titans don't have next years starting QB on thier roster. Whether they draft him in the first round next year, or sign a stop gap and delay it till 2016 remains to be known. For all we know, they might be pulling a 2011 Colts here and using him to tank into Mariota. Clipboard Jesus isn't that good, but he's got enough veteran experience to win them a few more games here and there.
I own Mettenberger and I have some hopes for him, but I agree it's not a good sign when you're a QB and a 6th round pick. As you said, there were character concerns and injuries that helped him fall, but Jameis Winston is the mother of all character concerns and because he plays QB, there's pretty much no chance he falls to the 6th round. So there's definitely some truth to what you said.

So should I be looking to trade him for anything after a decent start? Or does he have the tools to be useful in a 12 team league.

Is he worth starting over Geno as my superflex this week? I have RG3 and it doesn't look like he's gonna play this week so I had Locker in as my superflex and immediately picked up Mettenberger and dropped Locker after i heard the news. As of now I have Mettenberger in the OP slot but Geno and Colt McCoy are on waivers.

Yup, saw Hyde/2nd given for Hunter in one league. I thought that was pretty insane, but I've never been a Hunter fan. Maybe he'll prove me wrong and make the masses of Hunter supporters happy. I hope for their sake that Hunter does. I have no shares of Hunter in any of the 13 leagues that I'm in.

In a Superflex?! How many teams? If it's more than 8 teams you should keep Mettenberger, pick Locker back up, and pick up Geno too. Is there are restriction on how many QB's you can hold or something?

I'm likely doing this. But I'm not expecting much this week vs the texans.

Throwing a 6th round rookie QB in against Watt and (probably) Clowney for his first game? That's brutal. No need to pick him up this week - he will certainly be on the wire next week regardless!

So nobody likes Mettenberger long term in Tennessee? Coming into this season I had him just behind the guys like Bridgewater and Bortles. I'm not saying he is their guy of the future, but Whiz has done well with qb's. I guess if i was taking a flier on someone I would rather have him or Logan Thomas over guys like Savage or Manziel.
