If you're like me and waited late into your draft to roll with a QBBC approach - and one half of that committee is Cutler - you may have found yourself having a few stiff drinks after last night's game. What is your strategy going forward?

Don't worry it's only Week 2?

1. check if my other QB can be relied upon when Cutler has to face a good pass D.
2. wait out another week to see if this was an aberration or a frequent happening.

Panic.

He does play Green Bay at Lambeau every week, right?

Holding, playing matchups. If a trade upgrade possibility presents, you do it.

It's pretty much what you signed up for by passing on a qb. These things will happen. He'll have some good games ahead, and you'll look like a genius. He'll throw several of these in throughout the season, and you'll swear you'll never draft him again...

He's a gunslinger QB with a craptastic O-line, so INTs are going to be the norm and it would be foolish to expect 300+ passing yard games every week. Perhaps, the Bears will be forced to throw the ball more with Forte being hurt. Play the matchups. This is a great article that will show you what to look for when choosing who to start, specifically page 2: http://www.fantasysharks.com/artman2/publish/StatLab_SOS1.htm?page=1

Theoretically you shouldn't of even played him last night. We're you even aware of his past games played at Lambeau.

But, its only week 2 and for sure there will be performances like last week more than there will be outcomes like last night for Cutler.

I posted these takes in another thread.

I think Rotoworld sums up Cutler's performance accurately:

Sacked seven times by a swarming Packers defense, Jay Cutler completed just 11-of-27 passes for 126 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in a 23-10 Week 2 loss at Green Bay.

Talk about a debaculous fiasco. Cutler spent the week daring the Packers to press his receivers and responded with one of the worst games of his career, barking at his overwhelmed offensive line despite his own penchant for holding the ball too long. Five days after starting 1-of-10 for 13 yards against the Colts, Cutler was 1-of-3 for -2 yards deep into the first quarter. Throwing lazy passes off his back foot, late down the middle and into double coverage, Cutler's mechanics, field vision and decision-making were appallingly bad. At one point in the fourth quarter, his passer rating was lower than his total rushing yards. The concern for fantasy leaguers is that Cutler has been unable to move the offense in 5-of-8 quarters to start the season, including the one quarter that Dwight Freeney was on the field for the Colts. He's a shaky QB2 option versus the Rams in Week 3.


Cutler wasn't very good last year, and his oline this season is just as bad. Despite the addition of Marshall, he'll have many of the same issues, and more games like this. Will he improve on last years numbers? I think the answer is slightly, but not as much as some people think. Over the season Marshall will get his numbers, and Cutler will be up & down. His mechanics have regressed. The results of a QB throwing off his back foot aren't a whole lot different than if a pitcher does. Home run! Interception!


I don't believe his overall numbers for this season are going to be a whole lot better than last year. If you're in a small league you can drop him for somebody else who has a good match up. If in a larger league he's a dicey play because he can implode at any time. I prefer him at home, with a good match up. Other than that, he rides the pine, or should....

This is who Cutler is. He's a guy who will sometimes give you a complete stinker of a game. He's had 8 games in his career with under 200 yards passing and at least 2 INTs.

He's still a relevant fantasy player. If you were starting him in Green Bay, you were making a bad call, he's had an awful history there.

I'm not panicking but I will be rolling with Rivers for a while.

If you were going QBBC approach, you would have started Cutler last week, and benched him this week. So far so good
