    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: Unlikely to return to Dallas in 2016

    Cassel finished the 2015 season with 1276 passing yards and a 5:7 TD:INT ratio in eight games. His 58.3 percent completion rate and 6.3 YPA were also poor, and he eventually lost the starting job to Kellen Moore, who wasn't much better. Given the struggles the Cowboys had this season when Tony Romo went down, expect them to address their backup QB position in a significant way in the offseason, either in the draft or by acquiring an upgrade elsewhere.

    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: Will serve as backup in Week 16

    Cassel will serve as the Cowboys' backup quarterback with Kellen Moore named the starter for Sunday's game at Buffalo, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Cassel was afforded the first four drives of Saturday's loss to the Jets, before head coach Jason Garrett exchanged the veteran for the untested Moore. If Cassel doesn't make another appearance this season, he'll finish as Dallas' leading passer with 1,276 yards. However, the mark accompanies a 58.3% completion percentage and five touchdowns versus seven interceptions, which likely won't translate to more than a reserve role, wherever he lands in 2016.

    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: Pulled from Saturday's game

    Cassell was pulled from Saturday night's game early after completing 3-of-8 passes for 37 yards and an interception. Caseell was reportedly on a short leash and that proved to be true. He led the Cowboys on a field-goal drive, followed by an interception and two three-and-outs. Kellen Moore came in for him and went 15-of-25 for 158 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: "On a short leash" against Jets

    Cassel will be "on a short leash" Saturday against the Jets, ESPN's Ed Werder reports. Coach Jason Garrett announced Monday that Cassel would remain his starter for Week 15 despite Cassel's 1-5 record as a starter, sub-60 percent completion rate and 5:6 TD:INT ratio. However, the team has reportedly been giving Kellen Moore some first-team reps in practice this week, and if Cassel struggles yet again, the coaching staff may consider a quarterback change. Moore has not played a snap in four NFL seasons.

    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: Will remain starter for Week 15

    Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Monday that Cassel would remain the starting quarterback despite the fact that the team is all but out of playoff contention, the Dallas Morning News reports. Cassel has been mostly awful, throwing more INTs than TDs with a 6.3 YPA and sub-60 percent completion rate while steering the Cowboys to a 1-5 record since he took over under center. Still, Garrett and the coaching staff feel that the veteran gives them a better chance to win than backup Kellen Moore, who hasn't thrown a snap in the NFL in four seasons. That could change once the team is officially eliminated from the postseason and the focus shifts to 2016, however.

    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: Struggles at Green Bay

    Cassel completed just 13 of 29 passes for 114 yards with an interception in Sunday's 28-7 loss at Green Bay. Cassel once again struggled to get much going, and his interception came in the end zone on a long drive in the first quarter. Other than a three-touchdown performance against the Eagles in Week 9, he hasn't been much of a fantasy asset in the six games he's started this year. In fact, he's got just a 5:6 TD:INT ratio overall, which obviously doesn't inspire a lot of confidence for fantasy owners. It doesn't figure to get easier next week against a solid Jets' secondary.

    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: 222 yards in win

    Cassel completed 16-of-29 passes for 222 yards in Monday night's win over the Redskins. Cassel figures to serve as the Cowboys' starting quarterback for the remainder of this season, and although his 55 percent completion rate Monday marked his second-lowest return of this season, the veteran at least didn't turn the ball over. While Cassel didn't throw a touchdown either, he was good enough to help Dallas seal a road victory in the division. Looking ahead, the Cowboys travel to play the Packers this Sunday.

    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: Takes over for injured Tony Romo in Sunday's loss

    Cassel played the fourth quarter of Sunday's 33-14 loss to the Panthers, completing 13 of 19 passes for 92 yards and a touchdown. The score, to Cole Beasley, was the Cowboys' only touchdown of the day. Cassel stepped in after Tony Romo re-injured his clavicle being sacked on the final play of the third quarter, and while the team hasn't provided a firm diagnosis yet, it's likely that Romo will miss most of all of the remaining schedule. With little left to play for, Dallas could elect to give Kellen Moore a look in the starting lineup, but at the moment Cassel is once again at the top of their depth chart at QB.

    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: Fails to score against Tampa Bay

    Cassel completed 19 of 30 passes for 186 yards and an interception in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay. He fumbled the ball during the contest. Cassel failed to put together a successful repeat performance coming off of last week's three-touchdown game. Last week's performance aside, Cassel has thrown for just one touchdown to pair with five picks in his other three starts for Dallas. Inserted into the lineup, in part, to add a vertical element to Dallas' passing game, Cassel has averaged just 6.7 yards per attempt in his four starts. Cowboys fans, and fantasy owners of Cassel's teammates, have likely begun a countdown for Tony Romo's Thanksgiving-Day return.

    Cowboys' Matt Cassel: Throws for 299 yards

    Cassel completed 25 of 38 passes for 299 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 33-27 overtime loss to the Eagles. Cassel was more aggressive than in his previous two starts, though he did still throw a lot of short passes, with 11 of those going in Cole Beasley's direction. Cassel threw an ugly pick-six to give the Eagles a 21-14 lead in the fourth quarter, but he was bailed out when Dez Bryant made an 18-yard touchdown catch in traffic on the next drive. With Tony Romo (collarbone) not eligible to return until Week 11, Cassel will get at least one more start, facing the Bucs in Tampa Bay.
