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).
