2014 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-in

Cassel was signed to a two-year, $10 million contract this offseason. Over nine games in 2013, the 31-year-old had a 60-percent completion percentage and mediocre TD:INT ratio of 11:9 while averaging 201 YPG in Minnesota's run heavy offense. With Cassel's knowledge of the offense, all signs point to him as the likely starter for the first month of the season. However, Bridgewater could be given a shot sooner than many expect based on his experience in a a pro-style system. Minnesota will look to diversify their offense to keep AP fresh and whichever QB is under center will benefit from playing behind a solid O-line ranked sixth overall by Pro Football Focus.

Latest Update

May-28-15 Bills WR Sammy Watkins is not participating at OTAs

Bills' second-year wide receiver is not participating in 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 drills at OTAs. He is still recovering from surgery on a partially torn labrum in his hip. The team is more being cautious more than anything else. Watkins is expected to be ready for training camp and should be 100 percent when the season opens. He projects to be the Bills' top receiver.

Fantasy Analysis:

Watkins hip should be fine. I'm more concerned with the Bills' offense when it comes to his fantasy production. The coaching staff has repeatedly talked about force feeding LeSean McCoy and running a ton this season. His QB will also most likely be Matt Cassel. Cassel struggles to push the ball down field and could limit Watkins upside. He will also have Percy Harvin and Charles Clay in Buffalo this season to take targets from him.
