Summary

Quarterback Rank: #30All Players: #248
Cassel opened the season as the starter for the Vikings but broke his foot three games into the season, missing the rest of the year. Cassel wasn't off to a great start before the injury, though, having three touchdowns to four interceptions while completing 58 percent of his passes. Cassel has started plenty throughout his career and will get another chance this season with the Bills. He should have first shot to start with his new team. Cassel doesn't have a great arm and takes few chances downfield. He struggles with accuracy at times and turnovers. He does have a track record of some success, though. Remember, he had some big showings with the Patriots and Chiefs, so the track record is there for him as an NFL starter.
FANTASY OUTLOOK
Even if he is starting, Cassel isn't a very exciting fantasy option. He'll be up and down in a starting role. He is capable of the big game, though, especially in what should be a decent offense. He could be worth some spot starts throughout the season.

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is in the competition to be the starting quarterback as much as anyone else, according to quarterback coach David Lee. Lee added, 'I think he has a beautiful throwing motion and I just have to think we've got to see how accurate he is.' Head coach Rex Ryan provided Taylor first-team repetitions along with QBs EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel through the first four workouts. 'He is an unknown, never played a whole lot in Baltimore,' Ryan said. 'I think the ability is hard to ignore, some of the things that he has.'

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel is likely to enter Week 1 of the season as the team's backup quarterback, in the opinion of The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci. He also thinks head coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman are open-minded about QB EJ Manuel and will give him a fair shot to compete for a starting job this summer. If Cassel or QB Tyrod Taylor win the starting job, the Bills would be expected to trade Manuel before outright cutting him.
Fantasy Impact: It would be a mild surprise if Cassel wasn't the starter to open the season for the Bills.
