Bears | Jay Cutler wants to stay in Chicago

Thu, 18 Dec 2014 16:34:36 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler hopes to stay with the team beyond the 2014 season. Cutler signed a seven-year, $126.7 million extension a few months ago and was benched Wednesday, Dec. 17, in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen.

Fantasy Tip: While Cutler obviously isn't an option on FantasyScore for Week 16, the possibility remains that he will start again next week. Clausen ($3,500) should only be rostered if you're looking to spend big at other positions.

Bears | Jimmy Clausen to start in Week 16

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 15:34:59 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen will get the start in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions, as the team has elected to bench QB Jay Cutler.

Fantasy Tip: Clausen's FantasyScore salary is $3,500 (or just 7.0% of the cap), but he is also facing a strong pass defense. While tempting to take Clausen for the salary savings, he isn't likely to do much against the Lions. Start him at your own peril.

Bears | Jay Cutler benched this week

Wed, 17 Dec 2014 15:34:54 -0800

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will be benched in favor of QB Jimmy Clausen in Week 16 against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Don't even think about going with Clausen ($3,500) at FantasyScore against a strong Lions defense. You can downgrade all of the Bears' offensive weapons surrounding Clausen this week, too.

Bears | Jimmy Clausen impressing

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 05:56:12 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Jimmy Clausen has impressed the team with how well he has handled preparation and is likely to make the team. "No. 1 is how he handled the room. That room is hugely important; the chemistry, the karma, whatever you want to call it," head coach Marc Trestman said. "In that room, the communication's got to be good. Jimmy's done a very good job, very maturely fit in and taken the place of trying to learn and work to learn the offense. He's grinded at it. He spent long hours here. He's had help from the guys in the room to get him to the place he is today."

The Bears will re-evaluate the quarterback situation at the end of OTAs.
