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.

Fantasy Tip: Gould plays Monday night so he does have a little more time to rest. Still, might be a better option to go with another kicker who is healthier and isn't an injury risk for your FantasyScore squad.

Fantasy Tip: Gould could miss another week because of his quadriceps injury. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find another kicker to use.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Kickers are a dime a dozen in the world of fantasy football and the cheapest position on FantasyScore. If Gould can play, he'll have a tasty draw against the New Orleans Saints in what could be a high-scoring affair.

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.

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.
