Vikings | Matt Cassel to go under knife

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 08:15:20 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel (foot) is scheduled to undergo foot surgery Friday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel is on Injured Reserve, and this is Teddy Bridgewater's team. With byes starting, he'll have some value as a potential matchup play, but he's clearly not yet an every-week starter.

Vikings | Matt Cassel likely needs surgery

Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel (foot) likely has a Lisfranc fracture or dislocation that will require surgery, in the opinion of Dr. David J. Chao, a former NFL head team physician.

Fantasy Tip: Teddy Bridgewater will be the team's quarterback moving forward. His value is limited to dynasty leagues for now, but he could serve as a bye-week replacement in favorable matchups.

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.

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.

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 06:52:30 -0700
