If all the reports about his foot rehab being far ahead of schedule are to be believed, Schaub will be a steal this year. He has thrown for at least 4,300 yards and 24 touchdowns in each of his healthy seasons with the Texans. That is not to mention how well he was playing last year before the injury.

The Texans have strong weapons in the passing game and a tremendous rushing attack that prevents defenses from loading up on stopping either facet of the offense. Schaub has full command of the offense, as well as chemistry with his targets - all of whom should be fully healthy by Week 1.

Schaub is a sly choice if you want to wait on the position why your leaguemates are busy gobbling up the early-round passers and leaving you with a bountiful stable of productive skill position players on your roster.

Jay Cutler | Chicago Bears | ADP: 10th round

The addition of Brandon Marshall is what may draw many owners to Cutler, but my interest has been piqued with the hiring of positional coach Jeremy Bates and promotion of Mike Tice to OC.

Bates and Cutler will be reunited, while Tice's in-the-trenches approach will go a long way toward improving the O-line and offensive direction - both items that were largely lost on Mike Martz.

Cutler has two new toys in Marshall, with whom he is quite familiar, and rookie Alshon Jeffery, whose imposing frame could allow him to dominate one-on-one coverage as a rookie. The running game is no longer in flux with Matt Forte receiving a new contract.

Green Bay and Detroit know how to whip the rock from coast to coast, so Chicago may be playing from behind or in a shootout with these divisional foes. The Bears have one of the most quarterback-friendly schedules in the league this year, as well.

Cutler may look a lot more like his prolific 2008 season in Denver than his three anemic efforts in the Windy City. While late-season weather is always a concern, he now has the weapons to help carry this offense into a position for late-season success.
