Cassel's short-, long-term fantasy value

When the Minnesota Vikings added veteran Matt Cassel to their roster, it was almost impossible to not envision him taking over as the starter if Ponder continued to struggle as a pro. Although Ponder has continued to struggle (0-3, 2 TD, 5 INT, 43.1 QBR) this season, it is a rib injury that has forced him to skip this week's game, which means that Cassel will make his first start for the Vikes Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
