Matt Cassel, QB, Kansas City Chiefs
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
With the pending trade that will send San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs, Matt Cassel looks to have officially lost his starting gig with the organization. It is very possible that Cassel, due to contractual obligations will also find himself on the unemployment line, although it most likely won’t be for too long.
Depending on where Cassel ends up, he will most likely either compete for a starting gig or be the primary backup. Either way, even if he landed on a team full of talented receiving options and started 16 games, Cassel wouldn’t top the 3,600 passing yards and 21 touchdowns that he had with New England in 2008. And considering that was by far his best season it is very highly recommended that you leave him off of your roster unless you play in a very sick, deep league.
