Vikings | Matt Cassel to see specialist

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 13:10:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel (foot) will see a foot specialist Thursday, Sept. 25, after he broke several bones in his left foot in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel won't start in Week 4. That much we know. Teddy Bridgewater will be a risky play at FantasyScore against the Falcons.

Vikings | Matt Cassel has broken foot

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:44:06 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel (foot) has several fractured bones in his foot, head coach Mike Zimmer said Sunday, Sept. 21, after the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: With Cassel sidelined, the head coach said Teddy Bridgewater will take over as the starting quarterback. In standard fantasy leagues, he is a low-end QB2 at best. In FantasyScore for Week 4, Bridgewater could be a very intriguing option if the price is right.

Vikings | Matt Cassel carted off

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 10:52:53 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel (toe) was carted off the field in Week 3 after suffering a toe injury. He is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Teddy Bridgewater has replaced Cassel and could keep the job if he plays well. Neither quarterback likely would be a good choice on FantasyScore at this point.

Vikings | Matt Cassel to remain starter

Sun, 14 Sep 2014 23:30:45 -0700

Despite throwing four interceptions in a 30-7 loss to the New England Patriots Sunday, Sept. 14, Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel will remain the starter. "As I've said before, I'm going to hold the quarterback position just like every position here to the same standard," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. "And I also said I wasn't going to have a quick hook. Matt needs to play better. It's pretty obvious he needs to play better."

Fantasy Tip: You may want to stay away from Cassel in FantasyScore contests as he could get the hook if the Vikings continue losing. His performance does not merit the cost (which was $5,200 in Week 2). Spend the money on a quarterback of similar price who isn't likely to get the quick hook, like New York Jets QB Geno Smith ($5,200).

Vikings | Christian Ponder saves job?

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 18:22:02 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Christian Ponder had a solid training camp and likely saved his job with significant work and production in the preseason finale. He might have some value if the team is not ready to put QB Teddy Bridgewater onto the field and they need someone to fill in for QB Matt Cassel.

Vikings | Not ready to name starting QB

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 09:32:02 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings are not ready to name QB Matt Cassel as their starting quarterback at this point, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel is being challenged by Teddy Bridgewater for the starting job, but neither should be selected in fantasy drafts. The winner of the competition could be a waiver wire addition during the season.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater struggles in practice

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 10:00:31 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater tossed three interceptions and had two more passes that were almost picked off in practice Monday, Aug. 11. Head coach Mike Zimmer plans to talk with the other coaches to determine how they'll use their quarterbacks in the second preseason game. QB Matt Cassel will start the game after playing just the first series in the first preseason game. Bridgewater played around two quarters and was 6-for-13 with 49 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater's mediocre preseason debut and his struggles in practice have held in check much of the optimism that the Vikings have had for Bridgewater in training camp. It reminds all of those over zealous drafters that Bridgewater is still a rookie, and this is definitely Cassel's job to lose.

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 05:38:06 -0700
