Bears | Jay Cutler wants to stay in Chicago

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 16:34:36 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler hopes to stay with the team beyond the 2014 season. Cutler signed a seven-year, $126.7 million extension a few months ago and was benched Wednesday, Dec. 17, in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen.

Fantasy Tip: While Cutler obviously isn't an option on FantasyScore for Week 16, the possibility remains that he will start again next week. Clausen ($3,500) should only be rostered if you're looking to spend big at other positions.

Bears | Robbie Gould misses practice

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:44:02 -0800

Chicago Bears PK Robbie Gould (quadriceps) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look good for Gould, who has missed the last two games. For now, look elsewhere at the kicker position on FantasyScore.

Bears | Alshon Jeffery doesn't practice

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:41:33 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (non-injury related) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: This is probably just a day of rest for Jeffery ($7,100), but he's not a great play this week anyway with Jimmy Clausen throwing the ball and a tough matchup facing a top-tier Detroit Lions pass defense.

Bears | Jay Cutler to start next week?

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 13:02:13 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler was benched just for this week against the Detroit Lions, according to head coach Marc Trestman. Cutler will be active and serve as the backup in Week 16. "We're not playing well enough at the quarterback position on a consistent basis," Trestman said.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler could theoretically come back to play in the season finale against the Minnesota Vikings, but it also probably depends on how Jimmy Clausen fares this weekend. Either way, Cutler shouldn't be a popular FantasyScore selection if he returns to start in the season finale.

Bears | Jimmy Clausen to start in Week 16

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 15:34:59 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen will get the start in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions, as the team has elected to bench QB Jay Cutler.

Fantasy Tip: Clausen's FantasyScore salary is $3,500 (or just 7.0% of the cap), but he is also facing a strong pass defense. While tempting to take Clausen for the salary savings, he isn't likely to do much against the Lions. Start him at your own peril.

Bears | Jay Cutler benched this week

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 15:34:54 -0800

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.

Bears | Robbie Gould does not practice

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 13:39:55 -0800

Chicago Bears PK Robbie Gould (quadriceps) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Gould has missed the last two games and does not look like he will be able to play in Week 16 either. Owners should be able to find another kicker to use.

Bears | Marc Trestman likely to be fired

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 18:26:24 -0800

The Chicago Bears are expected to fire head coach Marc Trestman, according to a source. The team's ownership met Tuesday, Dec. 16, after the team's Week 15 loss against the New Orleans Saints. It is uncertain if general manager Phil Emery, who hired Trestman, also will be shown the door.

Bears | Jay Cutler's time ticking?

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.

Bears | Robbie Gould questionable

Sat, 13 Dec 2014 12:41:31 -0800

Chicago Bears PK Robbie Gould (quadriceps) is questionable for Week 15.

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.
