|The Chiefs offensive production went south when Cassel was lost for the season in Week 10 due to a broken hand but Kansas City was hardly an offensive powerhouse with Cassel in the lineup. Even with the teamís most dynamic offensive player Jamaal Charles lost for the season in Week 2, former head coach Todd Haley still leaned heavily on the run game with Cassel failing to top 200 passing yards in five of his nine starts and also failing to top 300 passing yards once. With Haley gone and new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll running the show, the teamís production in the passing game isnít likely to see a huge increase. Dabollís preference is to run the ball heavily and utilize plenty of short passes. While that may play to Casselís strengths (although that is half-hearted praise given his completion percentage of 57.2% as a Chief), it isnít going to turn him into a useful option as your fantasy quarterback. Cassel rates as a lower tier QB2 in 12-team leagues.
| Romo on track to return in Week 11 -- Mon Nov 16 5:15 pm --|
Out since Week 2 with fractured collarbone
|Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo's fractured collarbone appears to have healed based on recent test results, a league source told ESPN's Ed Werder. After missing two months of action, Romo should be cleared from injured reserve/designated to return Wednesday and play as expected Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, the source said.
"Tony's had a good couple of weeks of practice with us," coach Jason Garrett said. "We anticipate him being able to practice this week." (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Cowboys won each of their first two games with Romo under center but have gone 0-7 during his absence with Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel - the franchise's longest losing streak since 1989. His return is a major boost for all Dallas skill-position players, particularly Dez Bryant. Expect Darren McFadden to benefit as well since defenses will need to respect the passing game again. This week's opponent, the Miami Dolphins, present a plus-matchup for Romo.
|Bills going wth Tyrod Taylor as starting QB -- Mon Aug 31 10:26 am --|
Running ability makes Taylor an intriguing QB2

FF Today's Take: Matt Cassel has proven his mediocre abilities, EJ Manuel has failed to impress so head coach Rex Ryan turns to the dual-threat abilities of the unproven Taylor. He's a QB2 for fantasy purposes and will have above-average talent surrounding him once LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Percy Harvin (hip) recover from their injuries.
