Bucs’ Freeman an option if you have Cassel

The Chiefs announced that QB Matt Cassel underwent an appendectomy Wednesday. The procedure was successful, according to the team, and the Chiefs said they expect Cassel to return to work this week.

Wait, what?

As in the Chiefs expect Cassel to play this week? Or do we just take the Greg Brady exact word route, and note that he will just return to work? Most medical websites indicate that recovery from an appendectomy will take four to six weeks. And that’s just for a dude who sits behind a desk. Coming back from an appendectomy and expecting him to “return to work this week” seems like a bit of a stretch.

But we will keep on top of the injury report and the latest from the Chiefs this week.

Cassel was a risky fantasy start to begin with this week against the motivated Chargers, who traditionally play well in December (despite last week’s performance against the Raiders). Now Cassel is an even bigger question mark.

One quarterback that has been on the radar for a while and has some great matchups down the stretch is the Buccaneers’ Josh Freeman, who is available in just over half of NFL.com fantasy leagues.
