Summary

Quarterback Rank: #30All Players: #250
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.

comments about Matt Cassel

Notes

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.

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel will receive a fair shot to win the starting quarterback job, according to head coach Rex Ryan. 'I'm lining them up to literally have a competition for the position,' Ryan said. 'People will say, 'Well, is this guy ahead of the other?' There's going to be assumptions, but the great thing is, let it play out. Give both guys the opportunity and then at the end of the day, the cream will rise to the top. It usually does.' Ryan did not rule out the possibility of QB Tyrod Taylor winning the job.

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel will have a chance to win the starting quarterback job in training camp and the preseason. Head coach Rex Ryan said Friday, March 20, that the quarterback competition will be open. 'It's a competition and whoever earns the job will be the guy that's out there,' Ryan said. 'We have some talented guys and we'll see what happens. You bring in a veteran like (QB Matt Cassel). He's done some pretty good things in this league. He's got that veteran presence about him.'

Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel was traded to the Buffalo Bills Wednesday, March 4. The Bills swapped their 2015 fifth-round pick for the Vikings 2015 sixth-round draft pick. Minnesota will also receive a 2016 seventh-round draft pick.
Fantasy Impact: Cassel should get first shot to start for the Bills but nothing is 100 percent certain. He doesn't have a ton of fantasy value in a starting role but could help on a spot start status.
