Matt Cassel Is No Fantasy Football Superstar

[Update: Of course the day I write this, Matt Cassel blows up against the Texans.]

The Kansas City Chiefs are a run-first team. This week, offensive coordinator Charlie Weis said the goal going into any game is to run the football. That's good news for the Chiefs because run the ball very well.

For Matt Cassel, Dwayne Bowe, Chris Chambers and fantasy football, it's not a good thing. The Chiefs are winning but we're concerned with fantasy football today.

How will these guys do against the NFL's worst pass defense? Yes, the Texans are ranked 32nd out of 32 against the pass. Logic says this would be a good fantasy football matchup for the Chiefs.

That's probably not the case. The Chiefs either A.) can't pass the ball or B.) choose not to pass the ball. What we do know is that they haven't been very successful passing the ball through the first four games of the season.

Basically....don't start any of the Chiefs receivers of Matt Cassel on your fantasy team.
