Fantasy Outlook
If he isn't ready then the Vikings won't rush Teddy Bridgewater, the team's 1st round pick in this year's draft, into the starting lineup, leaving Cassel the likely starter on opening day. It's anyone's guess as to how long he will hold onto the job. However, with the Vikings a near consensus pick to finish 4th in the NFC North, it seems likely Bridgewater will take over under center by the season's midpoint. If Cassel hasn't already proven that he has little fantasy value, Bridgewater's presence should end that debate.
Vikings QB Matt Cassel named starter

Minnesota Vikings have named quarterback Matt Cassel the starter for Week 1 at St. Louis (TwinCities.com)
Fantasy Impact: Minnesota Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel edged out Teddy Bridgewater to be named starter for Week 1. Cassel remains a low end number 2 quarterback. I have no doubt that if at any point Cassel struggles, the Vikings will not hesitate to have Bridgewater take over as the starting quarterback based on the way he has been proving himself in the preseason games so far. Bridgewater has great fantasy value in dynasty leagues.
