Potential very good news for those planning to play Mariota. He likely won't be 100-percent. Of course, we may not officially know until inactives are posted an hour and a half before game time on Monday.
TEN QB Matt Cassel - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. Indianapolis
Matt Cassel threw for 141 yards and a touchdown subbing for an injured Marcus Mariota last week and it appears Mariota could be out again this week, though check his Friday status. Indianapolis is 30th in points allowed to quarterbacks, having given up 2 passing touchdowns in each of the past three games. But Cassel doesn't have enough on the ball any longer to necessarily take advantage of that. Don't put him in your lineup if he plays.
