Dolphins expected to sign QB Jay Cutler to a one-year deal

The Dolphins and QB Jay Cutler are finalizing a one-year deal, sources tell ESPN. Two sides are expected to hammer it out shortly.

Fantasy Impact: 

Based on the signing, it doesn't look like Ryan Tannehill's prognosis is very good. Cutler played for Dolphins HC Adam Gase for one season (2015) in Chicago, and he had a pretty good year: 64.4% completion, 21 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and 7.6 YPA in 15 games. He was the No. 20 fantasy quarterback that season (15.7 fantasy points per game). Keep in mind that Alshon Jeffery only played nine games that year, and with his top receiver in the lineup, Cutler was even better (16.8 fantasy points per game). If Tannehill is out for the year, and it certainly looks like he will be, Cutler will be in the QB2/streaming conversation. Miami has trio of solid receivers and added Julius Thomas at tight end. Their fantasy value should hold pretty steady, though they don't have the built-in chemistry that they had with Tannehill.
