Michael Turner scored four touchdowns in what was a blowout win over the Panthers. He had scores of 1, 4, 1 and 16 yards, and 117 rushing yards overall. He’s one of several players to post huge fantasy numbers in Week 12, joining Matt Cassel, Randy Moss, Tony Romo, Terrell Owens and Matt Forte (to name a few).

Vic Carucci reports from the Patriots-Dolphins game. Check back later for his complete column:
MIAMI — Lost in all of the fuss over how the Patriots would handle their second look at the Dolphins’ “Wildcat” formation was a question that figured to have every bit as much impact on the outcome of their rematch: How Miami would handle its second look at Matt Cassel?
The answer was not very well.
Cassel has blossomed into a far better quarterback than he was when the Dolphins beat the Patriots, 38-13, two months ago in Foxborough, Mass. And the latest demonstration came in New England’s 48-28 victory at Dolphin Stadium.
I guess it’s better late than never, but fantasy leaguers are finally seeing Brady-like numbers from a Patriots quarterback.
When it comes to evaluating players, and quarterbacks specifically, New England has seen skills that other teams have not. It did it with Tom Brady, a sixth-round pick, and it did it again with Matt Cassel, a seventh-round pick.
Any team that is in need of a new head coach and quarterback – and quite often the two go together – could pull off the double dip of the off-season and hire Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who then could go and recruit and his former quarterback Matt Cassel.
When quarterback Matt Cassel hits the free-agent market this winter, it is not hard to guess what his asking price will be.
It will be similar to the six-year, $65 million contract that Green Bay recently awarded its quarterback, Aaron Rodgers.
When quarterback Matt Cassel hits the free-agent market this winter, it is not hard to guess what his asking price will be. It will be similar to the six-year, $65 million contract that Green Bay recently awarded its quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. For starters, Cassel and Rodgers have the same agent, David Dunn. They also have started almost the exact number of games after taking over their jobs from legendary quarterbacks this season. And once they did, the two quarterbacks have posted similar numbers, as the chart below shows. Cassel might not be as productive as Rodgers so far, but he is not far from. So if Rodgers got an average of close to $11 million per year, Cassel is expected […]
Ponder this possibility, as many struggling teams will this off-season.

Patriots QB Matt Cassel became the first QB with 400-plus yards passing and 60-plus rushing in the same game since 1970.

New England Patriots QB Matt Cassel struggled mightily in Sunday night’s loss to the Chargers, but he won’t lose job because of it, writes The Boston Globe’s Mike Reiss.
Randy Moss just scored on a 66-yard touchdown pass from Matt Cassel. It’s the first score for Moss since Week 1, when Cassel took over the offense from an injured Tom Brady. Fantasy owners certainly hope this sort of connection happens more often as the season rolls ahead.
Randy Moss had a record-breaking season last year with Tom Brady in control of the Patriots’ offense. But with Brady now out for the year, Moss is looking to build the same type of chemistry with QB Matt Cassel. The Boston Globe‘s Mike Reiss explains how the two players are spending a lot of time together lately.
I received a lot of emails this week about my distrust of Matt Cassel as a starting fantasy quarterback.
Well, if you don’t agree with me now, you probably never will.
Classy move on Tom Brady’s part. Throughout last week, even when he was down and out, Brady continued talking with and text messaging his replacement, Matt Cassell, providing pointers on what to expect from the offense and the New York Jets.
