Week Four: Well, That Was Closer

I believe the Chiefs would have won Sunday’s game against the Chargers if they did one thing differently… Didn’t have Matt Cassel at QB! Luckily I am a Tom Brady owner and was able to win my fantasy game before Monday night. Cassel once again proved to the sports world that he is the worst QB in the NFL. His defense gave him the ball back late in the fourth quarter and he did nothing with it, well not exactly nothing… He proved he loves sharing and politely gave the ball away. FantasySharks even has Curtis Painter and Blaine Gabbert listed above Cassel this weekend, that is just sad for a guy who is coming off a ProBowl season.

We did see Cassel finally throw the ball downfield, especially toward Dwayne Bowe. It took until the second half for the play calling to eventually open up, but this is a good sign for Bowe owners. I still have high hopes for Dexter McCluster, especially this week. He managed to hold on to the ball better and was targeted more than I expected. I believe he is worth a flex start this week. I’m sad to admit I believe Thomas Jones has run out of gas, he may continue to get the start at RB for the Chiefs, but McCluster is the one who will be reaping the benefits from Jamaal Charles’s injury.

Stay away from all Chiefs players for now except Bowe and McCluster. I would trade Bowe if you can, especially after one more hot game. Follow my lead and see what McCluster can do, I think McCluster owners will continue to be pleasantly surprised by his performance going forward.
