Dolphins QB Jay Cutler expected back in Week 9

Even after having his ribs cracked recently, it appears Cutler will be back next week to face the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: 

It will be Matt Moore (our No. 25 ranked QB) versus Joe Flacco (our No. 24 ranked QB) in tonight's Thursday Night Football matchup.

Cutler hasn't played well this season, averaging 165.83 passing yards and sporting a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 7:5. If the ribs don't heal quickly enough and Matt Moore plays exceedingly well tonight, it could lead to an extended rest period for Cutler. While it doesn't matter much in traditional start-one quarterback leagues, Moore would make for an intriguing QB2 streaming option in 2QB or Superflex leagues next week, in what would be a great matchup versus the Raiders, according to our aFPA metric. Something to keep in mind, especially with six teams on a bye in Week 9.
