Player Outlook

Matt Cassel will back up Matthew Stafford in Detroit this fall. Stafford hasn't missed a game in seven seasons, so it seems unlikely Cassel will get much of a chance to play. Even if he did, Fantasy owners wouldn't be psyched to start him

Player News
  • Cassel has surpassed Jake Rudock for the No. 2 spot on the Lions' quarterback depth chart, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Cassel had been working behind Rudock during OTAs, but it appears a late swap on the depth chart has occurred. The veteran signal-caller has plenty of experience under his belt, appearing in 15 or 16 games in three straight seasons from 2008-10. There's still a lot of time remaining before the season starts, but Cassel sits in good position as training camp approaches.

  • Lions' Matt Cassel: Slated to back up Stafford
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Lions are nearing agreement on a contract with Cassel, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Cassel provides the Lions with a veteran backup option behind starter Matthew Stafford. Jake Rudock is also in the team's quarterback room, but the 35-year-old Cassel may have the upper hand for the No. 2 job, given his 81 games of NFL starting experience since 2008.

  • Titans' Matt Cassel: Struggles as fill-in starter
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cassel completed 21 of 32 passes for 141 yards with a touchdown and a lost fumble in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Dolphins. Two plays after having a 59-yard touchdown pass to Delanie Walker erased on an offensive pass interference penalty, Cassel had a strip-sack fumble returned for a 38-yard Miami touchdown. He failed to get Tennessee's wide receivers involved early, throwing 10 of his 12 first-half completions to tight ends or running backs as his team went into the break trailing 10-3. While he erased that deficit with an 11-yard touchdown to tight end Phillip Supernaw in the third quarter, Cassel was unable to produce any more points the rest of the way. It's clear the Titans need Marcus Mariota to come back from his hamstring strain as quickly as possible, as the 35-year-old Cassel doesn't have much left in the tank.

  • Titans' Matt Cassel: Draws start Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cassel will start Sunday's game against the Dolphins. With Marcus Mariota (hamstring) unavailable Sunday, at a minimum, Cassel will draw the start at QB for the Titans, with Brandon Weeden set to serve as his backup. Cassel completed four of 10 passes for 21 yards, with no TDs and two interceptions in relief of Mariota in last Sunday's 57-14 loss to the Texans. He's a speculative Week 5 fantasy lineup option, especially with the team's running back duo of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry capable of engineering a bounce-back effort after the team's collective dud in Week 4.

  • Titans' Matt Cassel: Expected to start Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cassel is expected to receive the start at quarterback Sunday against the Dolphins with Marcus Mariota (hamstring) considered unlikely to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Titans are still officially labeling Mariota as questionable and a game-time decision for the contest, but with his recovery time from the hamstring injury -- which he suffered in the Week 4 loss to the Texans -- estimated at 2-to-4 weeks, it appears though he hasn't quite healed up yet. As a result, Cassel, who completed four of 10 passes for 21 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in relief of Mariota last Sunday, is in line for his first start since Week 17 of last season. Given his middling numbers since his Pro Bowl campaign with the Chiefs in 2010, Cassel profiles as a lower-tier fantasy option at the position, and his presence behind center will likely result in a downgrade in production from the Titans' receivers as well.
