2013 Outlook
Depth Chart
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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Cassel back in Minnesota     -- Fri Mar 7 8:00 pm --

QB will re-sign with Vikings
One month after opting out of his previous contract, Matt Cassel is coming back for two years and $10 million. The signing was confirmed by two NFL sources. The contract Cassel opted out of was a two-year deal he signed in 2013 that was worth $3.7 million per season. His new contract is worth $10 million over two years, according to cbssports.com. (Minneaplis Tribune)

FF Today's Take: The deal can't be completed until free agency begins on Tuesday but Cassel will be wearing purple in 2014. The Vikes are also likely to be looking for QB help in the upcoming draft but not necessarily in the first round. Christian Ponder is likely headed for a backup role.
Cassel opts out of contract     -- Sat Feb 8 9:00 am --

Vikings QB becomes a free agent
Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel officially opted out of the final year of his two-year contract today, Pro Football Talk reported, citing a league source. By exploring the free agent market, Cassel stands to get a long term contract for more money. The Vikings could still re-sign him when free agency begins March. 8. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FF Today's Take: Cassel signed a two-year deal prior to last season and not surprisingly, become the teams starter after Christian Ponder's inadequate play. The Vikings may re-sign Cassel as a veteran but they will likely add a young QB before the preseason begins. The Vikes have the No.8 pick in this year's draft.
