Matt Cassel to start over Brady Quinn vs. Steelers: Fantasy implications

Stephen Dunn

Matt Cassel will start at quarterback when the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football. We break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Cassel will start at quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs for their Week 10 matchup on Monday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to reports. Brady Quinn is listed ahead of Cassel on the team's depth chart, but he has yet to be cleared to play after suffering a head injury in Week 8.

Cassel has started two straight games since returning from a head injury of his own. Last week he struggled against the San Diego Chargers, going 19-for-29 passing for 181 yards and an interception.

Fantasy Impact: Head coach Romeo Crennel has indicated that Quinn is the Chiefs' starting quarterback going forward with the season, but whether it actually matters from a fantasy standpoint is another thing. Neither Quinn nor Crennel should be anywhere near your lineup unless you are absolutely desperate in a deep league. The Chiefs are in too big of a mess to trust either with your all-important fantasy league standing.
