QB | Jay Cutler | Chicago Bears | Fantasy
Former NFL QB Kurt Warner said Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is struggling with "confidence and understanding" of the team's offense, according to The Associated Press. "But where I think it has to adjust is he's got to be able to anticipate within that offense and see things ahead of time, throw the ball before a guy gets open, trust the guy to come open or move to his next read. That's where I see him struggling right now within that offense. I see hesitation in Jay at the back end of his drop and in the pocket, where he wants to get back there, hitch a couple of times, see something come open and then make the throw. In this offense, it's not built that way."

A competitor wants to be on the football field making plays, especially when you feel like your team is struggling out there," Hightower said. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Hightower's lack of playing time was more of a circumstance of the game and not punishment. "Unfortunately, that's just the way it played out," Whisenhunt said. "I don't anticipate that being the case as we go forward. At the end of the day, we have to have Tim getting more reps."
