Titans' Matt Cassel: Struggles as fill-in starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Titans' Matt Cassel: Relieves Mariota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cassel completed four of 10 passes for 21 yards and two picks in Sunday's 57-14 loss to Houston.

Cassel came in in the third quarter after Marcus Mariota injured his hamstring. It was an ugly look, but, in fairness to Cassel, the game was out of hand when he entered and Tennessee was forced to throw it. None the less, nobody in Tennessee is going to want to see Cassel in there for too long if Mariota misses time. In two extended looks last season, Cassel completed 58 percent of his passes for a paltry 5.48 yards per attempt. He should not be on anyone's radar from a fantasy perspective even if Mariota is out for a while.

Titans' Matt Cassel: Suits up against Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cassel completed 8-of-13 passes for 88 yards and added a seven-yard scramble in Saturday's preseason win over the Panthers.

Cassel suited up for Week 2 of preseason after sitting the opener for precautionary reasons related to a minor thumb injury. As expected, Cassel finished the first half after starter Marcus Mariota worked two drives. The veteran's as locked into a No. 2 role as any quarterback in the league since he has no chance of surpassing a healthy Mariota but also enjoys plenty of job security given third-stringer Alex Tanney's underwhelming resume.
