Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will be benched in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Don't even think about going with Clausen ($3,500) at FantasyScore against a strong Lions defense. You can downgrade all of the Bears' offensive weapons surrounding Clausen this week, too.
Sat, 13 Dec 2014 14:49:15 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's time as the starting quarterback could be ticking, in the opinion of NationalFootballPost.com's Jason Butt. The Bears promoted QB David Fales to the 53-man roster Saturday, Dec. 13.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler ($6,300; 12.6% of your cap) isn't a good start this week on FantasyScore. Butt's opinion was that promoting a third quarterback this late in the season is a curious move. The team could turn to Jimmy Clausen in the weeks to come.
Fri, 12 Dec 2014 06:09:46 -0800
Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer apologized for being the anonymous source in a report ripping QB Jay Cutler. Kromer admitted to telling an NFL Network reporter in a conversation that was later reported on TV that Cutler's play has "killed" the Bears and that the team has buyer's remorse.
Tue, 09 Dec 2014 12:59:51 -0800
Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall recently said he would have buyer's remorse regarding the team paying QB Jay Cutler a seven-year, $126 deal. However, Marshall did add that the blame for the Bears' offensive struggles doesn't solely lie on Cutler's shoulders. "It doesn't always fall on him. I guess that's why those guys are the highest paid players out there. Because when you win and everything is going good, they get all the glory. And when it's bad, they take more [blame] than what they should take.
Fantasy Tip: Despite Cutler's on-field shortcomings, he does have a superb matchup versus the New Orleans Saints this week. He'll cost $6,300 on FantasyScore if you want to plug him in your lineups. Marquess Wilson, Marshall's replacement, is also a nice option at just $3,000.
Mon, 08 Dec 2014 20:11:05 -0800
Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall said he supports QB Jay Cutler, but he also said that he doesn't understand why the team's offense has been so out of sync this season.
Fantasy Tip: Marshall has suffered through the worst season since his rookie year, and while he is out for the year, the fantasy value of all Chicago's remaining offensive weapons is likely to continue to fluctuate over the final weeks as the Bears continue to play inconsistent football.
Sun, 07 Dec 2014 07:30:47 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's play has given the team buyer's remorse after he signed his long-term deal. There is serious doubt inside the organization that he can take them where they want to go.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler remains a matchup play on FantasyScore.
Fri, 05 Dec 2014 17:55:40 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will remain the team's starting quarterback the rest of the season as long as he is healthy, according to head coach Marc Trestman.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler leads the NFL with 21 turnovers, but he also ranks fifth in passing yards and sixth in touchdowns. He could make a decent fantasy option in Week 15 when the Bears take on a New Orleans team ranked 29th against the pass.
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 13:50:53 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler completed 72 percent of his throws for a 98.0 passer rating and three touchdowns in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings. However, he also threw two interceptions.
Fantasy Tip: For fantasy purposes, Cutler's 330 yards and two scores was just fine. For real-life purposes, another multiple turnover game is quite concerning. He'll face a very leaky pass defense in Week 12 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so he'll be a nice value for FantasyScore owners. In standard leagues which penalize turnovers, he is a little less attractive from a fantasy perspective.
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 08:00:40 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler could be placed on the trade block this offseason, because other teams likely would have interest in acquiring him. The Bears would create $12.5 million in salary cap space if they traded Cutler.
Mon, 10 Nov 2014 12:32:48 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will not be benched at this point but does need to play better, according to head coach Marc Trestman.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler has struggled in the last three games and has thrown four interceptions in those games while also throwing five touchdowns. Cutler faces the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11 and could be a starting option if an owner does not have a better option.
Mon, 20 Oct 2014 09:10:38 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler threw an interception and fumbled twice in the team's Week 7 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Cutler has turned the ball over multiple times in all four of the team's losses this year, but he hasn't turned the ball over once in any of the team's three wins. The Bears opponents have scored 37 total points off Cutler's turnovers this year. He was sacked three times and finished with a passer rating of 74.4 against the Dolphins with 190 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: It's been a Jekyll and Hyde season so far for Cutler. He's a matchup play right now, and he'll be on the road against the New England Patriots in Week 8, which could be another tough game.
Sun, 19 Oct 2014 15:09:39 -0700
Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall called out QB Jay Cutler in a heated locker room discussion after the team's Week 7 loss against the Miami Dolphins, a source said Sunday, Oct. 19. The source said there "are some very selfish individuals in the locker room." But it's not out of the ordinary for Marshall to strongly voice his opinion to Cutler, as the two are close friends off the field. Marshall also reportedly yelled at PK Robbie Gould.
Fantasy Tip: The argument shouldn't affect fantasy values any, and it is just part of football, competition and losing. If the Bears won this game, obviously things would be just fine.
Wed, 30 Jul 2014 15:57:01 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's arm strength is standing out in practice. "The ball is ON you," said defensive coordinator Mel Tucker.

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 12:45:58 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler practiced with the first-team offense and the second-team wide receivers Sunday, July 27, in order to get extra reps.
Fri, 18 Jul 2014 11:59:56 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has impressed head coach Marc Trestman with how intelligent and selfless he's been to better the team. Trestman also said he's been impressed with Cutler's skillset and football smarts.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler has had QB1 potential his whole career, but hasn't really had that perfect season yet or proven he's worthy of QB1 status. He played well last year before an ankle injury, but it's best to draft him as a QB2 for now.
Fri, 11 Jul 2014 12:38:22 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler believes he's more familiar with second-year head coach Marc Trestman's offense. Cutler said he should be able to think less and play faster now that he's become more acquainted with concepts and formations.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler is quarterbacking one of the more potent offenses in the NFL this year. He should be drafted as a high-end QB2 with QB1 potential.
Sun, 29 Jun 2014 07:33:32 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has made tremendous strides cleaning up his fundamentals this offseason, according to quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh. "I've seen incredible progress," Cavanaugh said. "When we got in here last year & evaluated him we had a real good conversation with him about certain things that every quarterback should do. We said, 'Jay it might not be natural, but we want you to try it.' And he did"
"To his credit, he's taken every suggestion we've given and he's embraced it. From how he holds the ball to how he lines up in the`Gun' pre-snap to how he drops back, to his throwing base to his follow-through. Every little fundamental we've talked to him about, he's embraced, and it's like night & day."
Tue, 10 Jun 2014 10:57:35 -0700
Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said QB Jay Cutler has made his durability a priority this offseason, and the quarterback has become bigger and stronger as a result. "He's bigger, he's stronger than a year ago, and he has really focused on staying physically well for the entire season. That's No. 1 -- we've got to keep him standing, keep him safe. And we see the improvements he's made in working on different issues in his mechanics, and I think he's feeling very comfortable back there in Year 2," Trestman said.
Fantasy Tip: If it weren't for Cutler's penchant to miss chunks of games each season due to injury, he'd be a no-doubt QB1 with plenty of upside. In Chicago's pass-happy offense with arguably two of the best and most physical wide receivers in the league, there still is upside from Cutler, but it comes with plenty of risk. He's a low-end QB1 that needs to be paired with a capable backup.
Thu, 27 Mar 2014 13:02:44 -0700

Tue, 11 Feb 2014 16:10:34 -0800
Former Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo, the GM that pulled off the trade to acquire QB Jay Cutler in 2009, said Cutler has all the tools except for the fact that he isn't clutch. "Has all the physical tools, but inconsistent in the clutch," Angelo wrote. "Mostly due to a lack of poise. He's not comfortable reading defenses and consequently locks onto a favorite or pre-determined target, that may or may not be the right choice. The less he's asked to see the better he is. A better half field general, than a full field one."
Thu, 02 Jan 2014 10:12:35 -0800

Thu, 02 Jan 2014 07:36:31 -0800

Tue, 31 Dec 2013 15:30:28 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler said Tuesday, Dec. 31, in a radio interview that his representation and the club will try and work on a new deal so he can remain with the team, but he is still uncertain about his future in Chicago.

"I don't know when it's going to happen, and eventually, it might not happen. But we're going to take a crack at it for sure."
Mon, 23 Dec 2013 05:11:59 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler was reconfirmed the starter for Week 17 against the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Tip: The matchup against Green Bay isn't terrible, but Cutler hasn't hit full stride in a season that was interrupted by injuries. He has the weapons, but the offensive line took a step back in Week 16. Consider him a low-end QB1 if you're still playing.
Sun, 22 Dec 2013 20:21:18 -0800

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 11:56:55 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler said he's not feeling pressure heading into the team's Week 16 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. "No, I feel pretty good," Cutler said. "I feel kind of at ease. We've got a real good plan this week I think. The guys on offense are playing at about as high of a level as I think you could play around me, so it makes it easy for me. Just find the open guy."
Fantasy Tip: Cutler is facing a 31st ranked Eagles pass defense, which should bode well for his upside in championship weekend. Consider him a midrange QB1.
Sun, 15 Dec 2013 14:46:19 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) completed 22 of his 31 pass attempts for 265 yards for three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns. He also tested his ankle by running three times for 11 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler looked good against a solid pass defense, and made it through with no apparent setbacks from the ankle injury which kept him out for four games. Cutler is a must-start fantasy option heading into Week 16.
Fri, 13 Dec 2013 12:01:12 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ankle) is being listed as probable for Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Tip: Remember, Cutler hasn't played since Week 10, so there may be a rust factor. The Browns are no slouch on defense, either, and Joe Haden will do his best to shut down Brandon Marshall, Cutler's favorite target. It's somewhat risky to rely on Cutler with a lot on the line.
Thu, 12 Dec 2013 15:22:52 -0800

Thu, 12 Dec 2013 11:19:40 -0800

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 11:30:08 -0800
The Chicago Bears plan to put QB Jay Cutler (ankle) through a full-speed workout Wednesday, Dec. 11, before making a decision on whether he will start over QB Josh McCown in Week 15 against the Cleveland Browns. "We'll have receivers there afterwards. We'll work him through drops, redirect him in the pocket, move him up and down and get as much suddenness out of him as we can," head coach Marc Trestman said. "He's gone through the first steps (of being cleared to play) other than this workout. He's been cleared from a standpoint of allowing us to work him at full speed."
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 10:43:29 -0800
Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said the team will name a starting quarterback Thursday, Dec. 12, after QB Jay Cutler (ankle) participates in the team's walkthrough Wednesday, Dec. 11. Trestman said he is optimistic that Cutler will be able to play Week 15.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to wait a day or two before finding out who will start. Cutler likely would be a low-end No. 1 quarterback if he is able to return to the lineup. Josh McCown should be considered a solid No. 1 quarterback if he keeps the job.
Tue, 10 Dec 2013 06:05:33 -0800
Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said QB Jay Cutler (ankle) is still the team's starting quarterback. Cutler will have to practice in full this week in order to play in Week 15.
Fantasy Tip: Cutler has torn ligaments in the ankle, and his mobility might be limited when he returns. If Cutler is a sitting duck in the pocket, it's hard to envision him being very effective.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 20:53:50 -0800
Chicago Bears QB Josh McCown threw a career-high four touchdown passes in the Week 14 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Dec. 9. He is now 2-0 on Monday Night Football this season, and he has 11 touchdowns and just one interception in place of the injured QB Jay Cutler.
