    Chicago Bears

    Position
    QB
     
    Jersey
    6
    Name  Jay Cutler
    Born  4/29/1983
    Height  6-3
    Weight  220
    College  Vanderbilt
    12/28/2014 6:45:00 PM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler avoided any big mistakes and didn't make any big plays in Week 17.
    Insight: Cutler did not throw an interception, yet completed just 23-of-36 passes for 172 yards and no touchdowns. It will be interesting to see where Cutler ends up playing next season. He will have a starting job somewhere.
     
    12/17/2014 7:19:00 PM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has been benched according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
    Insight: Hard to believe Cutler is being benched considering he is in his first year of a, seven-year, $127 million contract extension. Cutler has obviously regressed in the second year of Marc Trestman's offense, but with his contract guaranteed for the next two seasons, the Bears are stuck with him, and it seems silly to bench him for journeyman Jimmy Clausen. Regardless, any owners hoping to use Cutler this week are out of luck.
     
    12/16/2014 9:49:00 AM
    Description: The "bad" Jay Cutler was on display Monday night against New Orleans.
    Insight: Cutler had 194 yards passing on 31 attempts with a pair of touchdown passes and three interceptions. It's always a guessing game which Cutler will show up each week and that's a problem in a one-and-done fantasy playoff system.
     
    12/5/2014 9:45:00 AM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler wasn't good early, but benefited from a big time final quarter (a.k.a. garbage time).
    Insight: Cutler had just 100 passing yards at the break, but finished 32-of-46 for 341 yards and a pair of touchdowns with one interception. Fantasy owners don't really care about how he got there, only that he did.
     
    11/27/2014 3:51:00 PM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler played well in the first quarter, but fell apart after that, during Thursday's game against Detroit.
    Insight: He threw for two touchdowns in the first quarter, but could only help muster three points for the remaining three quarters. Cutler finished with 280 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions.
     
    11/23/2014 7:22:00 PM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler did not do much in Sunday's win against the Buccaneers.
    Insight: He threw for 130 yards, along with one touchdown, but also lost a fumble. Cutler is inconsistent, making him a borderline QB1.
     
    11/16/2014 5:24:00 PM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler threw for 330 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions on Sunday against the Vikings.
    Insight: Despite the two picks, the good Cutler showed up in Week 11. He put the ball in spots where his big receivers could make big plays. Cutler is a low-end QB1 in 12-team leagues going forward.
     
    11/10/2014 10:33:00 AM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was ugly Sunday night, but some garbage-time yardage helped make his fantasy total more respectable.
    Insight: There was nothing respectable about the 55-14 beatdown, but Cutler finished with 272 passing yards and one touchdown with a pair of interceptions.
     
    10/26/2014 7:20:00 PM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had a decent fantasy-day, despite being blown out 51-23, on Sunday.
    Insight: Cutler was 20-of-30 for 227 yards, three touchdowns, one interception, and one fumble lost. He will continue to be a borderline QB1 for 2014.
     
    10/19/2014 6:47:00 PM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had two more turnovers against the Dolphins.
    Insight: Cutler threw an interception and lost a fumble, which set up the Dolphins in great field position. Cutler was 21-of-34 with 190 yards and a touchdown as well.
     
    Hot10/13/2014 10:40:00 AM
    Description: Bears QB Jay Cutler threw for 381 yards, but just one touchdown.
    Insight: Cutler distributed the ball evenly between his two star receivers, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery and his favorite outlet receiver, Matt Forte.
     
    9/16/2014 12:08:00 PM
    Description: Bears QB Jay Cutler didn't put up many yards (176), but came up big when his team needed it with four touchdown passes.
    Insight: Cutler can be excused for not throwing for 350 yards as he did in Week 1 as his two top receivers, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, could barely run due to hamstring issues.
     
    9/7/2014 6:18:00 PM
    Description: A typical Jay Cutler afternoon, alternately looking very good and very bad.
    Insight: Cutler threw for 349 yards and two scores, but also threw a pair of interceptions in a 23-20 loss to Buffalo.
     
    8/14/2014 10:35:00 PM
    Description: Quarterback Jay Cutler looked solid again in his preseason opener going 7-for-9 for 75 yards and a touchdown to Brandon Marshall.
    Insight: With two great targets at wide receiver and solid tight end play from either Martellus Bennett it could be a big season for Cutler if he can just play a complete season.
     
    8/9/2014 10:26:00 AM
    Description: Quarterback Jay Cutler looked solid in his preseason opener going 9-for-13 for 88 yards and a score.
    Insight: More importantly, he didn't throw an interception, take a sack or get hurt. With two great targets at wide receiver and solid tight end play from either martellus Bennet of Zach Miller it could be a big season for Cutler if he can just play a complete season.
     
    1/2/2014 11:40:00 AM
    Description: Quarterback Jay Cutler will remain with the Bears after agreeing to a seven-year deal.
    Insight: Cutler averaged 238.3 ypg his highest total since leaving Denver in 2008. With Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte catching his passes, Cutler should continue to be a productive fantasy option.
     
    Cold12/23/2013 10:58:00 AM
    Description: Chicago QB Jay Cutler will start next week's game versus the Packers despite a lackluster outing in Week 16. SOURCE: ESPN Chicago
    Insight: Cutler threw for 222 yards and a 73.8 QB rating before being replaced by Josh McCown in the fourth quarter. Cutler hasn't played the Packers yet this season (he was hurt for Week 9) but he threw five interceptions against them in two starts last season.
     
    12/15/2013 5:20:00 PM
    Description: Bears quarterback Jay Cutler completed 22-of-31 for 265 yards, three touchdowns and two picks in his return to action Sunday at Cleveland.
    Insight: Cutler was wild early and threw two interceptions on high throws to Brandon Marshall, but he came through for fantasy owners who took the chance and started him. He had a little help from Alshon Jeffery, who somehow pulled in an underthrown 45-yard pass in double coverage for a touchdown.
     
    12/12/2013 2:12:00 PM
    Description: Bears coach Marc Trestman says Jay Cutler (ankle) will start Sunday against the Browns.
    Insight: Backup Josh McCown has thrown for at least 348 yards in each of the last three games but Trestman said Cutler is still the starter. Cutler has a 13-8 TD-INT ratio this season compared to 13-1 for McCown. Either QB is a top-10 fantasy play with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery at wideout.
     
    12/11/2013 4:47:00 PM
    Description: According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Bears coach Marc Trestman says he is "optimistic" Jay Cutler (ankle) will start Sunday against the Browns. Cutler was cleared to practice at full speed Wednesday.
    Insight: Backup Josh McCown has thrown for at least 348 yards in each of the last three games with nine touchdowns (eight passing) and two turnovers during that stretch, but Trestman said Cutler is still the starter. Cutler has a 13-8 TD-INT ratio, compared to 13-1 for McCown.
