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.
Vikings place QB Matt Cassel on IR-- Wed Sep 24 10:00 am --
Rookie QB to start against Faclons
The Teddy Bridgewater era appears to have officially begun in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Vikings placed Matt Cassel on injured reserve Wednesday morning, three days after the quarterback broke several bones in his left foot on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
FF Today's Take:Bridgewater will make his first NFL start this week against the Falcons. Without Adrian Peterson and Kyle Rudolph it's hard to get excited about Bridgewater's fantasy prospects. He does offer some mobility, rushing for 27 yards on six carries last week. He'll be a QB2 until he proves otherwise.
