Chicago Bears news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 08:42:48 -0700
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) could have been done as the starting quarterback if QB Brian Hoyer (forearm) weren't lost for the season because head coach John Fox allegedly told friends he was done with Cutler, according to two league sources. Cutler is in the final season of guaranteed money in his contract.
Fantasy Tip: That actually plays into Cutler's favor as the team is going nowhere, and he's in a pseudo contract year auditioning for other teams. He remains a matchup play in fantasy, but that matchup isn't good this week against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: The Bears play Monday night, so Royal will have some extra time to get ready. Coming off an injury and having Jay Cutler back aren't ingredients for a successful recipe, though, especially against the Minnesota Vikings vaunted defense. Royal is a big risk heading into Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: The Bears' muddled backfield is about to get a bit messier. Ka'Deem Carey appears to be on equal footing with rookie Jordan Howard, while Langford was the starter before his injury. Expect Langford to eventually work his way back to leading the committee, although it is hard to see any of them enjoying fantasy success anytime soon with games against the Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers sandwiching the team's Week 9 bye.

Fantasy Tip: Jay Cutler has been cleared to play, so he'll take over for Hoyer with Matt Barkely now serving as the backup. Cutler has been underwhelming this season and during his Bears tenure, though, and the Chicago quarterback situation is one to avoid.

Fantasy Tip: Brian Hoyer is expected to be out six weeks with a broken left arm and Matt Barkley hasn't exactly proven to be an adequate NFL quarterback, so the Bears have little choice but to turn back to Cutler. That's likely good news this week for Alshon Jeffery - the one player Cutler doesn't mind forcing the ball to - and the owners of the Vikings D/ST, who should be angry coming off their worst performance of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Barkley is likely to be under center in the near term. The Bears take on the Minnesota Vikings in Week 8, and Barkley shouldn't be a starting consideration in fantasy.

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) is scheduled to undergo surgery Sunday, Oct. 23, on his broken left forearm. He will be sidelined for at least eight weeks and could be placed on injured reserve.
Fantasy Tip: Matt Barkley will serve as Chicago's starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, with Jay Cutler (thumb) out indefinitely, but he is not a viable fantasy option. It had been hoped that Hoyer could make a late-season return but the odds of that happening now appear slim.
