The Chiefs offensive production went south when Cassel was lost for the season in Week 10 due to a broken hand but Kansas City was hardly an offensive powerhouse with Cassel in the lineup. Even with the teamís most dynamic offensive player Jamaal Charles lost for the season in Week 2, former head coach Todd Haley still leaned heavily on the run game with Cassel failing to top 200 passing yards in five of his nine starts and also failing to top 300 passing yards once. With Haley gone and new offensive coordinator Brian Daboll running the show, the teamís production in the passing game isnít likely to see a huge increase. Dabollís preference is to run the ball heavily and utilize plenty of short passes. While that may play to Casselís strengths (although that is half-hearted praise given his completion percentage of 57.2% as a Chief), it isnít going to turn him into a useful option as your fantasy quarterback. Cassel rates as a lower tier QB2 in 12-team leagues.
San Diego claims QB Mettenberger-- Tue May 17 5:43 pm --
Titans had placed him on waivers a day earlier
The San Diego Chargers claimed QB Zach Mettenberger off waivers on Tuesday, bringing the 6-5, 224-pound former Tennessee Titan into the fold. To make room, the team waived QB Bryn Renner.(Chargers.com)
FF Today's Take:The Chargers' current coaching staff features two of Zach Mettenberger's former coaches while he was in Nashville in Ken Whisenhunt and John McNulty. The familiarity should provide Mettenberger a solid shot to be Phillip Rivers' backup heading into the 2016 season as he battles incumbent Kellen Clemens. Mettenberger became more expendable in Tennessee after the team chose a more experienced quarterback, Matt Cassel, to serve as the primary backup to starter Marcus Mariota.
