Matt Cassel will start Sunday's game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals, head coach Romeo Crennel announced Tuesday. Brady Quinn apparently has yet to be cleared by doctors after suffering a concussion in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders.
Cassel struggled mightily on Monday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He went just 11-for-26 passing for 154 yards and an interception thrown in overtime to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal.
Fantasy Impact: Granted, Cassel was playing in some nasty weather. Still, Monday's horror show could only be forgiven if had been playing well, otherwise. That simply isn't the case. Cassel has accounted for 15 total turnovers this season, and has thrown just six touchdown passes.
Crennel has said he will start Quinn as soon as the quarterback is able to play. Until then, the Chiefs are stuck with Cassel. Suffice it to say, he shouldn't be anywhere near your fantasy roster at the moment.
