Matt Cassel on the bubble?

Ranked 32nd overall in my most recent QB rankings, Matt Cassel was poised to spend the season in waiver hell, probably never seeing a starting spot in your league. Now, reports out of Bills mini camps paint Cassel into a corner as he’s been dismal, consistently being outplayed by suplanted starter E.J Manuel.

I’d still caution you against expecting a Bills QB to contribute to a championship roster this year. Manuel does have a bit more upside thanks to his atheltic ability, something that Cassel doesn’t possess at this point in his career, but a history of poor decision making and poor accuracy and efficiency mean Manuel is nothing more than a waiver pick up in case he explodes.

Despite all of this, I expect Cassel to start week 1, and I’d hope you’re smart enough to not draft either of these players in any format.
