Matt Cassel, QB Buffalo Bills

Rankings

Notes: Cassel has not had a good offseason, but he’s still expected to start ahead of E.J. Manuel in OC Greg Roman’s run-heavy offense. This is not a recipe for fantasy success.

Rex Ryan has shown 'greater enthusiasm' for Tyrod Taylor than other Bills QBs

Tuesday, June 30, 2015, 11:36am

PFT - [Full Article]

The Bills brought in two new quarterbacks this offseason, trading for Matt Cassel and signing Tyrod Taylor. Most people figured Cassel was in line to start and Taylor was brought in to be a backup. But that may not be the case.

The Buffalo News reports that Bills coach Rex Ryan has shown greater enthusiasm for Taylor than for Cassel, that Ryan has wanted to coach Taylor for a long time and previously wanted the Jets to acquire him, and that Ryan says Taylor is the fastest quarterback in the NFL and can change games with his speed.

Fantasy Impact:

It's going to be a run-heavy offense, but if Taylor wins the job, he could become fantasy relevant thanks to his ability to run the ball. The Bills aren't lacking for receiving weapons, either.

Scouting Report

Matt Cassel - Week 3 vs. New Orleans

Matt Cassel is coming off of a horrible performance against the New England Patriots. We knew the Patriots had a tough secondary and they showed why in Week 2. Cassel barely completed over half of his passes and ended up throwing four interceptions to just one touchdown. He finished with 202 passing yards.

The statistics say the Saints have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season, but that's because Matt Ryan tore them apart in Week 1. In Week 2 they allowed just 204 yards and one touchdown on 40 pass attempts to Brian Hoyer.

Cassel hasn't shown us anything promising this season and that's why he's a very poor option at QB this week. Look elsewhere for your quarterback.
