Found September 18, 2012 on The Camel Clutch Blog:
There are some intriguing names available on the waiver wire this week. The key word is intriguing because none of these players are going to turn your season around. However, there are some nice grab and stash options that could pay dividends later in the season.

Matt Cassel Tops 300 Yards in Loss to Buffalo

Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel reached 300 yards in a game for the first time since 2010 Sunday in a blowout loss versus Buffalo.Fantasy Spin:Obviously most of the yardage came in garbage time with the Bills already up by 20 so take Cassel's gaudy numbers with a grain of salt. He still struggled with completion percentage (54.8 percent for the game) and his QB rating for...

Dalton throws 3 TDs, Bengals beat Browns 34-27

Not even a breakout game by Cleveland's rookie playmakers could change the outcome of Ohio's intrastate series. Adam ''Pacman'' Jones returned Cleveland's first punt 81 yards for a touchdown Sunday, and Andy Dalton matched his career high with three touchdown passes, leading the Cincinnati Bengals to a 34-27 victory in their one-sided rivalry. The Bengals...

Chiefs not reading into Cassel's body language

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Justin Christian is a Kansas City Chiefs fan and a body-language specialist, so this month has been a little more, shall we say, conflicted than most. As a rooting interest, watching this team has turned Sunday afternoons into three hours of taking a fork to your unprotected eyeballs. But as a case study? As a case study, from a purely clinical standpoint, Romeo...

Chiefs' TE Boss out after taking blow to head

Kansas City tight end Kevin Boss has taken a shot to the head following a second-quarter catch and will not return to Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. After catching a 29-yard pass from Matt Cassel, Boss was falling down when Buffalo's Da'Norris Searcy's forearm hit the back of Boss' head. The receiver's head then hit the ground hard. Boss stayed...

CINCINNATI (34) d CLEVELAND (27) The Headline: Dalton’s big day gives Bengals bragging rights in Ohio The Story: For a game between two teams that looked down on their luck, this one was a surprisingly entertaining game to watch as it was relatively even throughout the day and had its share of big plays. After the Bengals first drive stalled, Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones electrified...

Week 2 Fantasy Football Recap: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills

Kansas City Chiefs – 17, Buffalo Bills – 35Ugly ugly ugly is all you can say about the Chiefs’ effort, especially QB Matt Cassel’s (304 total yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) through about three and half quarters.  Two late touchdown passes with the game already decided are the only things that saved Cassel’s fantasy day.  At some point, the Chiefs have to wonder if there’s any...

Bengals 34, Browns 27

CINCINNATI -- Andy Dalton threw for 318 yards and three touchdowns to three different receivers as the Bengals bounced back from a Week 1 thrashing on Monday Night Football with a 34-27 shootout win against Cleveland on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.

Cleveland Browns vs. Cincinnati Bengals: Hero and Zero of the Game

In a game that was supposed to be one of the more boring games in the NFL this week the clash of Ohio turned out to be a high scoring barn burner.  Both teams wanted to come out and show that last weeks performances were just anomalies and they could really play. In a game with many heroes and no zeros I thought we would do an ode to Hockey giving out the three stars of the game...

Chiefs searching for answers in 0-2 start

(Eds: Incorporates FBN--Chiefs-Charles. With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer The running game has disappeared. Matt Cassel looks completely lost. The defense has struggled to stop anybody, and even the special teams are looking anything but special. The Kansas City Chiefs are winless through two games - two demoralizing, one-sided losses to begin the year - and now...

Week Two: Sit ‘em & Start ‘em Recap + Player Pickups

In this short post I go over the Sit ‘em & Start ‘em pick that I made before the weekend, I give a list of players who had breakout games and could be worth a waiver wire pickup.  Get a hold of me on Twitter: @Blackie_Mike Start ‘Em: Cassel was one of just a few players who came threw for me in week two by throwing for 300 yards against the Bills.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Washington Redskins: RGIII Will Shine

Bold Prediction No. 1:  RGIII excites the “cult crazed” Skins fans and statistically lights it upAfter two games, Griffin is second on the team in rushing and has thrown for 526 yards.But what stands out is his 71 percent completion rate with three touchdowns and one interception. Skins Nation has been waiting for a quarterback to lead them back to relevance, and Griffin will...

Déjà Vu All Over Again

Here we go again Chiefs fans.  In two weeks the Chiefs have gone from promising to forgotten.  Losing to a perennial playoff contender is one thing but being blown out by a perennial loser that lost by 20 the week before is a whole other monster.  On the very small bright side, at least we didn’t lose by 34 like last year.  I’m not sure if the Buffalo Bills have the Chiefs...
