Matt Cassel injury update: Don't even bother, fantasy owners

Peter Aiken

Matt Cassel is probable to hold a clipboard in Week 8 against the Raiders. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel (concussion) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Cassel passed his concussion tests and had a full week of practice. He should be ready to suit up, wear a headset and carry a clipboard on Sunday.

I say that because Brady Quinn has already been named the starter, regardless of Cassel's health. Cassel found himself benched after committing an incredible 14 turnovers on the season.

Fantasy Impact: The only real impact this news will have is on the depth chart, where Ricky Stanzi remains the third QB. The only way Cassel plays again is if Quinn gets injured or is somehow even worse. The Chiefs will almost certainly be looking for a new QB in the offseason.

Hopefully fantasy owners are getting the hint here. Avoid KC's QBs like the plague.
