Matt Cassel not on a short leash?
Vikings fans might have to wait for Bridgewater's time
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 3, 3:53 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Head coach Mike Zimmer knows he must walk a tightrope at quarterback. He wishes he could hold Cassel and Bridgewater to the same standard as he plans to hold the other positions, and go with whoever is playing best at that point in time. But he acknowledged that the ripple effect is more significant when changing quarterbacks than when changing out starters at other positions. “That’s something you have to consider,” Zimmer said. “With every position, even with the middle linebacker or the safety, you don’t want to make, as you say, a knee-jerk decision just because they don’t play well one day or do the things you think they’re capable of. I think you still have to go on what you see every day in practice and what you see in the preseason.” That’s why Zimmer said he doesn’t foresee the Vikings making a change early in the season. “I know the fans are excited about Teddy. I’m excited about Teddy,” Zimmer said. “But we have to do what’s best for the football team at this point in time and what’s best for the future." (Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: It looks like Matt Cassel will get a real shot to be the team's quarterback for the entire 2014 season. Based on Mike Zimmer's recent comments, it will take multiple poor outings before he considers giving Cassel the hook in favor of rookie Teddy Bridgewater. As a result, fantasy owners should be able to count on Cassel leading the offense for at least the first third of the season.

FFToday's Take: Not much of a surprise here. Cassel will begin the season as the Vikings starting QB with rookie Teddy Bridgewater holding down the backup role. Cassel has solid weapons around him including one of the better running backs in the game, but his inconsistent play makes him nothing more than a QB2 for fantasy purposes. Cassel posted 1807 yards, 11 TDs, 9 INTs in nine games last season.


Cassel the "heavy favorite" to start for Vikings
Rookie Bridgewater nipping at his heels
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 21, 4:45 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Matt Cassel, a 10th-year veteran with 68 NFL starts, is the heavy favorite to start entering camp after re-signing on a two-year, $10.5 million contract in March. But Teddy Bridgewater got some first-team reps during offseason practices and acquitted himself well. The Vikings report to camp Thursday, but Bridgewater arrived early to work with teammate Kyle Rudolph, among others, at Arizona Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald's annual workouts at the University of Minnesota.

FFToday's Take: HC Mike Zimmer has said he won't name a starter early in camp. Cassel may be a better fit for OC Norv Turner's vertical-based offense and the presumptive Week 1 starter, but Bridgewater is a good bet to take over the starting job at some point during the season because he is a much better decision-maker. With the plethora of weapons in Minnesota and Turner calling the shots, the winner of this race is well-positioned to be a solid QB2 in fantasy.
