NFL QB Transactions – Fantasy Perspective
Kerry Collins re-signed with the Titans. It was a two-year deal. He was a solid leader for the Titans, but offers little in terms of fantasy value. This is good news for WR Justin Gage and TE Bo Scaife, with whom Kerry had a good rapport last year. Re-signing Chris Simms is now up in the air. Vince Young will have to wait for a second shot.
Jon Kitna was traded to Dallas to be Tony Romo’s backup. This is an upgrade for the Cowboys, and Kitna’s day were clearly done in Detroit. This is a Win-Win. Little fantasy value out of Kitna, but Jason Witten, T.O., and Roy Williams have a little more security if Romo goes down again.
Finally, New England sent Matt Cassel to the Chiefs for a second round pick. He should win the starting job in K.C. meaning Tyler Thigpen is out. Cassel should remain on fantasy radars with Tony Gonzalez and Dwayne Bowe as primary weapons. Meanwhile, New England is letting everyone know the newlywed Tom Brady will be ready to roll. Matt Gutierrez, who actually looked better than Cassel in the preseason, will likely move into the backup role for New England.
