Bears QB Jay Cutler throws three touchdowns Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler tossed three touchdowns Week 11 against the Vikings.

Cutler completed 31 of 43 passes for 330 yards. He was able to hit his receivers deep, averaging 7.6 yards per completion. Cutler was kept clean in the pocket, and was not sacked during the contest. Cutler did throw two interceptions, so it wasn't all good. Still, Cutler had a nice game utilizing the size of his receivers. Alshon Jeffery hauled in a 27 yard score in the second quarter, and Brandon Marshall followed it up with a 44 yard touchdown reception. Marshall would strike again on a 4 yard score later in the game. 

Cutler will look for more Week 12 against the Buccaneers. 


Report: Bears could put Jay Cutler on trading block in offseason


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) The Bears could trade quarterback Jay Cutler after the 2014 season and save $12.5 million against the salary cap, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Schefter reports other teams will have interest in Cutler, who has faced a lot of scrutiny as the Bears are 3-6 through nine games.

Cutler is completing a career-high 66.4 percent of his passes in 2014. He is averaging 262.8 passing yards per game, while totaling 18 passing touchdowns and 10 interceptions in nine games.


Jay Cutler still searching for answers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is on pace for a career-high in touchdowns this season, but his recent play has left a lot to be desired, as he showed yet again in Week 10.

Cutler is averaging two touchdowns per game this season, but much of that came in the season's first five weeks, when he racked up 13 total scores. In four games since, including Week 10's debacle against the Packers, Cutler has just seven touchdowns, including three games with just one.

The most concerning part about his recent play is that Cutler has had his full complement of weapons available and has still struggled this badly. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall was limited badly by an ankle injury through the first five games, but has been a full-go over the last four, which has somehow coincided with Cutler's struggles.

Though the Bears' offensive line has had injury issues, Cutler really doesn't have a lot of excuses at this point. He has struggled against both good and bad pass defenses during this stretch, and just hasn't looked like the quarterback we expected. With a tough matchup on the way in Week 11 against the Vikings, 


Jay Cutler throws two picks in blowout loss vs. Packers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler had a night to forget Sunday, completing 22 of his 37 pass attempts for 272 yards with one touchdown, two interceptions and one lost fumble in his team's 55-14 blowout loss against the Packers in Week 10.

Cutler could get nothing going in the first half as the Packers continued to rack up touchdowns and put the game out of reach by halftime. He could have had a few more turnovers as he put the ball in the hands of Packers' defenders throughout the night, though they only managed two interceptions in all. One came on a deflection of the helmet of a Bears lineman, and the pick was returned 82 yards for the Packers' seventh touchdown of the night.

Cutler has been uneven this season, and the Bears have now dropped five of their last six games, giving up more than 50 points in each of their last two games. The Bears signal caller will look to rebound against the Vikings in Week 11.


Bears could give Cutler more chances to throw outside pocket


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Bears coach Marc Trestman said after watching plenty of game film during the team's Week 9 bye that the team could start having quarterback Jay Cutler throw more outside the pocket, according to ESPN.

"We’ve talked about all of that over the bye week, and how we can do some different things for him to help him," Trestman said. "We’ll continue to work on that, and see how that goes in the second half."

Trestman explained that having a quarterback throw more while on the run challenges opposing defenses.

"I think it has a residual effect on a lot of different things: the pass rush, on the passing spot, on how it applies to your run game," Trestman said. "Because a lot of times when you’re moving the pocket, it’s relative to a play-action fake or movement of some kind where you’re faking a run, and you’re moving outside the pocket. So there’s a residual effect on pass rush and in the run game when you can do those kinds of things."


Jay Cutler handles tough defense


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) Despite going against a defense that entered the day ranked No. 1 against the pass, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler threw three touchdown passes Week 8 at New England, ending a stretch of two straight games with just one touchdown pass.

And when you consider he had two interceptions in back-to-back games before then, meaning Weeks 4 and 5, you could argue this was his best statistical performance in five games.

Now, the score probably had something to do with it. Because the game was already decided at halftime, when Cutler had just 66 yards and a touchdown, the Patriots were content to give up yardage in the second half so long as they prevented the quick score.

Still, Cutler's Fantasy owners had to be encouraged by the performance against a tough defense after he had underwhelmed the last few weeks. Between Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte, he still has some of the best weapons of any quarterback and will be worth starting more weeks than not going forward.

The Bears are on bye in Week 9 before visiting the Packers in Week 10.


Bears QB Jay Cutler contributes late Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler turned in a solid game Week 8 against the Patriots.

Cutler's numbers are more deceptive than they seem. The Bears fell behind by quite a bit early, partially due to Cutler turnovers. With the game out of reach, he managed to toss a couple touchdowns. Cutler finished 20 of 30, with 227 yards and three scores. He tossed one interception and lost a fumble during the game. He also had one scramble for 6 yards.

The Bears are on a bye Week 9.


Bears QB Jay Cutler has no issues with Marshall's locker-room rant


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said he was not upset with wide receiver Brandon Marshall's postgame rant in the locker room following Sunday's loss against the Dolphins.

"He’s an emotional guy," Cutler said, per The Chicago Tribune. "Whenever he gets frustrated, he’s going to get emotional most of the time, and he’s going to speak from the heart, and he’s going to make sure everyone else around him hears him. It wasn’t anything that caught us off guard or was off-putting. It was frustration coming out and him just letting us know that it’s important to him."

Cutler added he doesn't believe Marshall crossed a line and said Marshall's actions were not directed at him.

"He didn’t come near me," Cutler said. "He didn’t say my name. I don’t think he attacked anybody personally (with) what he was saying."


Jay Cutler stumbles in loss to Dolphins


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Consistency has always been the issue for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, and his performance Sunday was a good example of that how bad things can get.

After opening the season with multiple touchdowns in each of his first five games, Cutler has just two over the last two games. He completed 61.8 percent of his 34 passes Sunday, but managed just 190 yards through the air in Week 7 against the Dolphins, mostly because he could not get on the same page with Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall -- he completed just eight of 17 passes to that duo for 57 yards Sunday. That is obviously not the key to success for him.

When things are going well for Cutler, there is little doubt he can be a strong Fantasy contributor, as he showed in putting up 20-plus Fantasy points in each of his first six games. He will try to get back to that level in Week 8, against a Patriots defense that is surrendering 22.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks over the last four games. 


Bears QB Jay Cutler does little in Week 8 defeat


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler wasn't much of a factor and was held under 200 passing yards for the second time this season in a disappointing home loss to the Dolphins in Week 7.

Cutler was picked off by Reshad Jones in the second quarter. He bounced back from a slow start with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Matt Forte on the opening drive of the second half, but failed to do much else the rest of the way. He compiled 190 yards through the air while completing 21 of 34 attempts. He added one touchdown and one interception, registering 74.4 passer rating. He was sacked three times and rushed for three yards on two attempts.

Cutler will look to bounce back Week 8 at New England.


Bears' Trestman: Jay Cutler 'played a complete game' Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Bears coach Marc Trestman was very complimentary Monday of quarterback Jay Cutler after the veteran quarterback threw for 381 yards in a 27-13 win Sunday against the Falcons.

"I thought Jay had an excellent game," Trestman said, per The Chicago Tribune. "He played a complete game. He took care of the football, No. 1. I thought he managed the game very well, managed the adversity that we had in the game. He took some hits, was able to respond to that. We were backed up a few times. We had some long drives. I thought overall he played a very clean game."


Jay Cutler piles up 381 yards in Week 6 win vs. Falcons


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler completed 26 of his 38 pass attempts for 381 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in his team's 27-13 win over the Falcons in Week 6.

Cutler consistently picked up chunks of yardage through the air, averaging 10 yards per attempt, but his one scoring strike came from just three yards out. He also set up a touchdown with a 74-yard bomb to Alshon Jeffery. Cutler added a two-point conversion and 11 rushing yards to his line as well. The Bears quarterback has racked up 1,676 passing yards and 13 touchdowns through six games while tossing just six picks. Cutler will sqaure off with the Dolphins in Week 7.


There's no slowing Jay Cutler down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has succeed in a number of different ways, and he found yet another in Week 5 against the Panthers.

Cutler racked up three touchdowns, his fifth multi-score game in a row to open the season, and he did it in a different way than in the past. Entering Sunday's game, all 10 of his touchdown passes had gone to his tight ends or wide receivers, with running back Matt Forte failing to get into the action. However, Forte was the crutch Cutler leaned on all game long Sunday, as the two connected for 105 yards and a touchdown in the game.

Cutler also added a touchdown with his legs, as he finished with 27 Fantasy points. Cutler has been picked off twice in three of his five games, but has still managed to reach at least 20 Fantasy points in each of his games. Cutler has a great matchup on the way in Week 6 against the Falcons, and should be active in nearly all Fantasy leagues. 


Bears QB Jay Cutler folds down the stretch in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler performed well Sunday - until it mattered the most.

Cutler finished 28 of 36 for 289 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. But one of those picks with just under six minutes remaining allowed Carolina to score the game-tying field goal. Cutler also fumbled with a minute remaining to snuff out the team's last hopes.

A tipped interception tossed by Cutler in the first quarter was followed to a prolific passing display. Cutler fired a 10-yard scoring strike to running back Matt Forte two minutes later and ran the same distance in for a touchdown soon thereafer. He fired a 25-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery four minutes into the second quarter and continued to rack up the yards.

Cutler was 23 for 27 for 245 yards at one point before his collapse. He will try to finish the job next Sunday when the Bears travel to Atlanta.


Jay Cutler has a chance to bounce back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will look to bounce back from his worst game of the season when he takes on the Panthers in Week 5.

Cutler tossed six touchdowns without an interception in Weeks 2 and 3, before his two-pick performance against the Packers last Sunday. Still, he came out of the game with 18 Fantasy points, and has tossed at least two touchdowns in each game so far, so it isn't all bad.

He gets to take on a Panthers defense that was badly victimized by the pass last week, as Joe Flacco tossed three touchdowns and racked up 31 Fantasy points against them. The Panthers have yet to hold a quarterback below 15 Fantasy points this season, while allowing multiple touchdowns in three of four games.

As hard as it can be to trust Cutler at times, this is not the time to turn away from him. Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard consider him a top-12 quarterback for Week 5, so consider him a solid No. 1 option.

 


Bad habits resurface for Jay Cutler


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) For one game anyway, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler looked like the inconsistent passer who tormented Fantasy owners for his first four years with the Bears. He started out well enough with two touchdown passes in the first half before throwing two interceptions in the second half, ending productive drives for the Bears and turning them into scoring opportunities for the Packers. They were his first two interceptions since the two he had in Week 1.

One game is no cause for alarm, especially when the opponent has historically had Cutler's number (he's now thrown 19 interceptions against the Packers to just 13 touchdown passes), but it's a reminder that, for all the promise of the Bears offense, you may want to have a decent backup for Cutler just in case he goes bad again.

His Week 5 matchup at Carolina -- a team that started out great defensively before falling on hard times the last two weeks -- should be an interesting one. Personally, after the way Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco torched the Panthers in Week 4, I wouldn't pay a second thought to sitting Cutler.


Second-half disaster spells doom for Jay Cutler


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) All was well for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler in Green Bay on Sunday. Then came the second half.

Cutler completed 14 of 20 passes with 165 yards and scoring strikes to Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery before intermission. But he hit on just 8 of 14 for 91 yards and two interceptions thereafter in a lopsided loss. The pair of picks creeped his lifetime total against the Packers to 20.

The veteran, who also rushed for 29 yards on three carries, took 8:30 off the clock on the opening drive before hitting Marshall for the touchdown. He then threw for 118 yards in the second quarter, but it all went south from there.

Cutler will have a chance to redeem himself when Chicago travels to Carolina in Week 5.


Jay Cutler turns in workmanlike effort


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) For the second straight week, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler minimized mistakes in an effective but not spectacular performance. Cutler hit 23 of 38 throws for 225 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions in Monday's 27-19 win at the Jets. He also ran five times for 14 yards.

Cutler lost a fumble, the first turnover he's committed since Week 1. And the Jets dropped an easy interception. Still, Cutler is up to eight touchdowns and three turnovers through three games. Cutler threw both touchdowns to tight end Martellus Bennett as No. 1 receiver Brandon Marshall struggled with an ankle injury.

Cutler plays the Packers in Week 4.


Jay Cutler to stay hot vs. Jets


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler looked like a terrible starting option in Week 2 at San Francisco. He was down two offensive linemen, and Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery were questionable to play against a 49ers defense coming off a three-interception outing at Dallas in Week 1.

Well, Marshall and Jeffery were active, and Cutler shredded the 49ers for four touchdowns. He now has six touchdowns in two games and should stay hot against the Jets, who have allowed five passing touchdowns in two games against Derek Carr and Aaron Rodgers.

We like Cutler as a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback in Week 3. For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Jay Cutler shreds 49ers for four touchdown passes


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler played one of the finest games of his career Week 2 at San Francisco. After a ragged start, Cutler picked apart the 49ers. He hit 23 of 34 throws for 176 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions or fumbles, and he ran five times for 25 yards.

It was an unusually discplined performance for Cutler, who posted a 119.2 passer rating.

Cutler began to heat up in the second quarter. Wideout Brandon Marshall helped him out with a ridiculous, one-handed 17-yard touchdown catch right before halftime, and Cutler was consistently brilliant in the second half, throwing just one incompletion.

He's up to six touchdown passes entering Week 3 at the Jets on Monday Night Football.


Bears could lose two along the offensive line


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The Bears could be without two starting offensive linemen for the next few weeks, as Roberto Garza and Matt Slauson both suffered high-ankle sprains in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

According to the Chicago Tribune, both players could be out for a at least a couple of a weeks as a result of their injuries. That could leave Jay Cutler vulnerable while the team is forced to start reserves along the line. 


Jay Cutler racks up 349 yards, 2 TDs in Week 1 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler collected 349 yards on 34 of 49 passing Sunday while throwing two touchdowns and two interceptions in his team's 23-20 overtime loss to the Bills.

Cutler hit Alshon Jeffery for a 44-yard gain on the team's first drive and immediately followed it up with an easy touchdown to tight end Martellus Bennett. The offense stalled for a bit after that, entering halftime down 17-7. After getting a field goal on the opening drive of the third quarter, Cutler hit Brandon Marshall for his second touchdown of the game. The quarterback threw a critical interception in Bills territory in the fourth quarter and watched his team fall behind by a field goal, but he able to engineer his own field-goal drive before time expired to send the game into extra time.

Cutler will face a tough task in Week 2 when he looks to get his first win of the season in San Francisco.


Jay Cutler a prime candidate for multiple TDs in Week 1


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler took to the team's new offensive system swimmingly in 2013, riding a strong supporting cast that included running back Matt Forte and wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall to an outstanding first six weeks. In his first six games, Cutler completed nearly 66 percent of his passes while averaging about 272 yards, two touchdowns and one interception per game.

An injury cut Cutler's seventh game short, and he found it difficult to get back to 100 percent at any point over the remainder of the season before finally giving way to Josh McCown. However, back to full strength for the start of 2014, Cutler is a prime candidate to match his first-six-game averages from last season in Week 1 against the Bills.

The Bills still maintain an excellent stable of pass rushers, but the back seven has lost players to injury and free agency, and the team will try to restock from within. Linebackers Kiko Alonso (out for year) and Nigel Bradham (suspended for Week 1) won't play Sunday, and safety projects to be an area of concern after Jairus Byrd left in free agency. Cutler should find plenty of room in the middle of the field all day. Expect plenty of first downs as the Bears QB piles up 300-plus yards and multiple TDs in Week 1.


Jay Cutler picked off once in dress rehearsal game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler endured a shaky performance Friday night against the Seahawks in exhibition play.

Cutler was held out of the end zone and his last pass of the night resulted in an interception by Jeremy Lane late in the second quarter. He was sacked twice and compiled 157 yards through the air while completing 12 of 20 passes. He finished the game with a 64.0 passer rating.

Jay Cutler tosses a touchdown against Jaguars


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Bears quarterback Jay Cutler threw a touchdown against the Jaguars Thursday.

The Bears offense didn't see a lot of action early, as turnovers limited them to just three plays most of the way through the first quarter. That allowed Cutler to remain in the game into the second quarter. On the team's third possession, Cutler was able to lead a 10-play drive, leading to a touchdown. The Bears offensive line gave Cutler a ton of time all night. He finished 7 for 9, for 75 yards. One of Cutler's incompletions was a drop by Brandon Marshall, so his night could have been even better.
