Fantasy Outlook
Entering his 11th year in the league, Cassel is at that point of his career where he enters every year as either a stopgap starter or veteran insurance for an unproven young player. While he has a solid chance to hold 3rd year player E.J. Manuel off and win the Bills starting quarterback position, we don’t like his odds of producing a solid fantasy season in 2015. Never an accurate passer (reaching a 60% completion rate just once in the last six years), he isn’t a solid fit in a Bills offense that will feature plenty of runs and play action passes. You can do much better on draft day.
