Jay Cutler, QB Chicago Bears

Rankings

Notes: Cutler’s #15 finish was his highest in the last four seasons. Marc Trestman is gone, and now new OC Adam Gase is running the offense. He had success in Denver in the past two seasons, but Cutler is no Peyton Manning. As long as the season is going relatively well, Cutler should post solid numbers, but if the wheels start to come off, watch out.

Bears have 'big plans' for WR Eddie Royal

Tuesday, June 23, 2015, 12:21am

Albert Breer, Twitter - [Full Article]

Per Albert Breer, the Bears have 'big plans' for Eddie Royal.

From PFT:

Royal got off to a fast start in his first year, catching 91 passes for 980 yards and five touchdowns while Jay Cutler was throwing for a career-high 4,526 yards en route to the only Pro Bowl appearance of his career.

It was the only year that the two men worked together, but both remember it fondly and Royal says they’re putting in the same work now that they did then to build the same chemistry.

Fantasy Impact:

Royal could create headaches for Kevin White (and perhaps Alshon Jeffery) owners. He has a tendency to either explode or disappear, and that makes it difficult to predict the distribution of production in any passing offense in which he plays.

Scouting Report

Jay Cutler - Week 17 vs. Minnesota

Well this is awkward. The Chicago Bears benched Jay Cutler last week in favor of Jimmy Clausen. Well, as fate would have it Clausen suffered a concussion and has been ruled out for Week 17. Welcome, back Jay!

Cutler hadn't been playing well in terms of actual football, but he wasn't a terrible fantasy option. He had six games with at least 280 yards passing and had multiple touchdowns in all but four games.

This week he faces a Minnesota defense he played well against in Week 11. In that game he completed 72 percent of his passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns. Typically the Vikings' defense is a little tougher than that.

The Bears clearly don't have a lot of confidence in Cutler and this week they aren't playing for anything. Cutler should be viewed as a QB2.
