Matt Cassel scores twice we break down the fantasy implications.

Matt Cassel turned in another positive fantasy outing with his 301 passing yards, two passing TDs and 25 rushing yards.

Analysis: He completed just 23 of his 42 passing attempts and also throw a pick. That's good for a passer rating of 83.5. Cassel took a lot of chances, so that sub-par completion percentage is a little deceiving. He was locked in on Dwayne Bowe and targeted him 15 times. The Bills got tons of pressure on him with their five sacks, so that won't help. He could be an interesting low-end QB2 against the Saints in KC's Week 3 matchup.
