Bears | Jay Cutler to face open competition

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 15:20:28 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will head into the offseason as the team's No. 1 quarterback on the depth chart, but head coach John Fox said there will be an "open competition" at the quarterback spot between Cutler and QB Jimmy Clausen during training camp and offseason workouts. The current coaching staff and general manager Ryan Pace have nothing vested in Cutler, and they've made it clear that money isn't the sole driver of their decisions.

Fantasy Tip: We find it hard to believe that Cutler won't eventually win the job over Clausen, who Fox also coached with the Carolina Panthers. Cutler will have to earn it, though, and his leash may become short during the season if he struggles. The loss of one of his favorite targets, Brandon Marshall, may hurt Cutler's overall production, too. Bottom line: Cutler is a QB2, at best, with room to move up if he works hard and gets himself in the good graces of his new staff.

Bears | Jay Cutler lacking confidence?

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 14:01:06 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler seemed to lack confidence last season, according to head coach John Fox. "I think maybe he got to the point where he lacked confidence a year ago. To build that back up, it's going to take time, daily. It takes trust, like any relationship."

Fantasy Tip: Cutler has been the recipient of much criticism during his tenure in Chicago, and that hasn't stopped this offseason. Brandon Marshall has left town and a new coaching regime has moved in, likely lessening Cutler's fantasy value to a certain extent. That doesn't mean he still doesn't have QB1 potential for 2015. That being said, it's risky to draft Cutler as a starting fantasy quarterback.

Bears | Jay Cutler to remain starter in Chicago

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 12:21:35 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will remain the starting quarterback in 2015, according to general manager Ryan Pace.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't really be a huge surprise as Cutler is certainly making starting quarterback money next season. He'll be without Brandon Marshall, however, which doesn't help his fantasy value. The Bears could still make some offseason moves, though. For now, Cutler is a fringe QB1.

Bears | Chicago tailoring playbook to Jay Cutler

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 11:43:21 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler, who is fully expected to be a part of the team's plans in 2015, will have the playbook tailored to his strengths by head coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Adam Gase. Cutler will earn $15.5 million this year on a contract that is fully guaranteed, but the new coaching regime may not hesitate to go in another direction if Cutler struggles early in the year. It's likely that the coaching staff sat down with Cutler and discussed his expectations for this season and how to reduce turnovers and bad decisions in a new scheme.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler remains a fantasy football enigma. He clearly has the talent to succeed in the NFL, but he remains a frustrating fantasy play on a weekly basis. The loss of Brandon Marshall could be significant, too. It remains to be seen if Cutler can flourish under a new coaching staff, but he still has enough talent around him on the offensive side of the ball to remain a viable fantasy option. Consider Cutler a shaky low-end QB1 and a safer backup fake quarterback in 2015.

Bears | Jay Cutler staying in Chicago

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 05:51:57 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is fully expected to be the starting quarterback in 2015, according to sources with knowledge of the team's thinking. One source was adamant that there was "absolutely zero truth" to recent reports that Cutler was being actively shopped for a potential trade.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler is still a low-end QB1. He'll just be 32 when the season begins, so a big year is not out of the question. However, it feels like that is said every year.

Titans | Jay Cutler headed to Nashville?

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 21:47:20 -0800

If the Chicago Bears decide to try and trade QB Jay Cutler, one NFL source said Friday, March 8, that the Tennessee Titans are the only realistic destination in terms of a trade. If Cutler is on the roster Thursday, March 12, a $10 million guarantee for 2016 kicks in.

Fantasy Tip: The future is murky for Cutler. If he remains in Chicago, the team just traded one of his biggest weapons away with Brandon Marshall now on the New York Jets. If he were to head to Tennessee, that team doesn't have anyone close to the caliber of Marshall or current Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery. His fantasy outlook isn't great for 2015.

Jets | Jay Cutler not an option for Jets

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 14:22:42 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler is not receiving any trade interest from the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Cutler could be traded this offseason, but it looks like he will not be wearing a Jets jersey. Cutler probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he is a starter next season.

Bears | Decision on Jay Cutler looming

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 16:39:32 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's contract is a concern, with the $10 million he's due for 2016 becoming fully guaranteed in one week.

Fantasy Tip: Fox has not received high praise from new head coach John Fox and seems to already be in the doghouse. The possibility of a trade still remains and could come to fruition within a week if the Bears feel that Cutler isn't worth the money. Stay tuned.

Bears | John Fox non-committal on Jay Cutler

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:43:05 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler did not receive a vote of confidence from head coach John Fox. Fox said the team is still evaluating the position. Fox said he wants to get to know Cutler as part of that evaluation. "We're not up against a deadline," Fox said. "My experience has always been that you need to gather the information and in turn, you usually make better decisions. We're in that process, and we'll keep you posted."

Fantasy Tip: There is still a chance that Cutler could be traded before the beginning of next season. He should be considered a QB2 wherever he ends up, and a solid FantasyScore play when the matchup and price is favorable.

Bears | Jay Feely says Jay Cutler is not a leader

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 06:45:32 -0800

Chicago Bears PK Jay Feely said QB Jay Cutler isn't a leader off of the field. "That's not who he is. You're going to have a vacuum there," Feely said on Mad Dog Sports Radio. "So you have to know that as a general manager or a head coach, 'Hey, we're not going to have that leadership from this position, so we've really got to have other guys that are going to step up and are going to be our verbal leaders.'"

Fantasy Tip: Cutler will probably be the de facto starter entering the season. If he returns with a chip on his shoulder, he could be a nice find later in traditional league drafts.
