Bears | Jay Cutler confident in new offense

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 14:37:30 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler said he's feeling great about the offense under new offensive coordinator Adam Gase. "I know the guys like it. I know the receivers like it," Cutler said. "TE Martellus Bennett is going to love it when he gets involved. We just have to keep heading in the direction we are going and keep studying. We are not where we want to be yet."

Fantasy Tip: No matter how much Cutler talks up the offense, he's still not worthy of QB1 consideration. He's proven to be one of the most unreliable quarterbacks both in real life and in fantasy football. He's a solid backup quarterback for your fantasy squad(s).

Bears | Chicago OC comfortable with Jay Cutler

Sat, 09 May 2015 10:40:39 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has some familiarity with offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Gase and Cutler met when Cutler was still an NFL prospect, and Cutler was still with the Denver Broncos when Gase came to Denver. "I feel comfortable with him. We have a good relationship so far and we're just going to keep working to get better," Gase said.

Fantasy Tip: There seems to be some camaraderie developing between Cutler and Gase, if it hasn't already. That can only be a good sign as Cutler and his teammates try to adjust to a new coaching staff. Perhaps that new staff and a familiar offensive coordinator can help Cutler improve on his notorious erratic play. Cutler did throw a career-high 28 touchdowns in 2014, but he's still a QB2 in fantasy football.

Bears | Jay Cutler to be traded to Titans?

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 16:32:12 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is reportedly involved in trade talks in which the Bears would acquire the No. 2 overall selection from the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler has been a disappointment for the most part with the Bears. Who knows how disappointing he'll be in a worse offense. If Cutler does get traded to the Titans, he should be considered a QB2.

Bears | Jay Cutler to face open competition

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 15:20:28 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will head into the offseason as the team's No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart, but head coach John Fox said there will be an "open competition" at the quarterback spot between Cutler and QB Jimmy Clausen during training camp and offseason workouts. The current coaching staff and general manager Ryan Pace have nothing vested in Cutler, and they've made it clear that money isn't the sole driver of their decisions.

Fantasy Tip: We find it hard to believe that Cutler won't eventually win the job over Clausen, who Fox also coached with the Carolina Panthers. Cutler will have to earn it, though, and his leash may become short during the season if he struggles. The loss of one of his favorite targets, Brandon Marshall, may hurt Cutler's overall production, too. Bottom line: Cutler is a QB2, at best, with room to move up if he works hard and gets himself in the good graces of his new staff.

Bears | Jay Cutler lacking confidence?

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 14:01:06 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler seemed to lack confidence last season, according to head coach John Fox. "I think maybe he got to the point where he lacked confidence a year ago. To build that back up, it's going to take time, daily. It takes trust, like any relationship."

Fantasy Tip: Cutler has been the recipient of much criticism during his tenure in Chicago, and that hasn't stopped this offseason. Brandon Marshall has left town and a new coaching regime has moved in, likely lessening Cutler's fantasy value to a certain extent. That doesn't mean he still doesn't have QB1 potential for 2015. That being said, it's risky to draft Cutler as a starting fantasy quarterback.

Bears | Jay Cutler to remain starter in Chicago

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 12:21:35 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will remain the starting quarterback in 2015, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't really be a huge surprise as Cutler is certainly making starting quarterback money next season. He'll be without Brandon Marshall, however, which doesn't help his fantasy value. The Bears could still make some offseason moves, though. For now, Cutler is a fringe QB1.

Bears | Chicago tailoring playbook to Jay Cutler

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 11:43:21 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, who is fully expected to be a part of the team's plans in 2015, will have the playbook tailored to his strengths by head coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Cutler will earn $15.5 million this year on a contract that is fully guaranteed, but the new coaching regime may not hesitate to go in another direction if Cutler struggles early in the year. It's likely that the coaching staff sat down with Cutler and discussed his expectations for this season and how to reduce turnovers and bad decisions in a new scheme.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler remains a fantasy football enigma. He clearly has the talent to succeed in the NFL, but he remains a frustrating fantasy play on a weekly basis. The loss of Brandon Marshall could be significant, too. It remains to be seen if Cutler can flourish under a new coaching staff, but he still has enough talent around him on the offensive side of the ball to remain a viable fantasy option. Consider Cutler a shaky low-end QB1 and a safer backup fake quarterback in 2015.

Bears | Jay Cutler staying in Chicago

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 05:51:57 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is fully expected to be the starting quarterback in 2015, according to sources with knowledge of the team's thinking. One source was adamant that there was "absolutely zero truth" to recent reports that Cutler was being actively shopped for a potential trade.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler is still a low-end QB1. He'll just be 32 when the season begins, so a big year is not out of the question. However, it feels like that is said every year.

Titans | Jay Cutler headed to Nashville?

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 21:47:20 -0800

If the Chicago Bears decide to try and trade QB Jay Cutler, one NFL source said Friday, March 8, that the Tennessee Titans are the only realistic destination in terms of a trade. If Cutler is on the roster Thursday, March 12, a $10 million guarantee for 2016 kicks in.

Fantasy Tip: The future is murky for Cutler. If he remains in Chicago, the team just traded one of his biggest weapons away with Brandon Marshall now on the New York Jets. If he were to head to Tennessee, that team doesn't have anyone close to the caliber of Marshall or current Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery. His fantasy outlook isn't great for 2015.
