Fantasy Football Sleeper: Matt Cassel Makes Great Quarterback Sub Against Dolphins

Fabiano believes that the key is facing the Dolphins depleted secondary this week that makes Cassel a potentially valuable play.

In his latest fantasy football column over at NFL.com, Michael Fabiano makes his latest list of starters to sit, bench players to start and rookies to watch for. One name that stands out locally is the Kansas City Chiefs starting quarterback Matt Cassel who often isn't mentioned in fantasy football due to the Chiefs winning with a great defense and last year's stellar running game. Yet Fabiano believes that the key is facing the Dolphins depleted secondary this week that makes Cassel a potentially valuable play.

"If you're in need of a quarterback this week, Cassel could be a great option off the waiver wire," says Fabiano. "The Southern California product has a spectacular matchup against the Dolphins, who have surrendered the second-most fantasy points to opposing signal-callers. Cassel is still a free agent in around 40 percent of NFL.com leagues."

For the year, Cassel has 9 touchdowns and 9 interceptions to go with his 1,367 passing yards in 7 starts.
