Fantasy Analysis
Week 11 Projections
He is getting stronger by the game, limiting his interceptions while tossing plenty of touchdowns. What once looked to be a difficult matchup against the Broncos defense, now no longer looks that daunting.
Passsing: 207 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 15 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Cutler compiled six-year bests in attempts, completions, passing yardage and touchdowns to close out 2014 as the 13th-rated fantasy passer, but the mercurial turnover-prone quarterback finds himself standing on very shaky ground nowadays. The Bears unsuccessfully tried to trade him, but it looks like new head coach John Fox will reluctantly give Cutler the Week 1 starting nod. Fox wants to run more and have Cutler throw less. Meanwhile, rookie WR Kevin White will miss at least the first six games of the season as he'll need to undergo surgery to stabilize a stress fracture in his leg. But Cutler will still have several quality targets with Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, Eddie Royal and Matt Forte to throw to. One warning about Cutler: If he starts committing turnovers in bunches, don't be surprised if the Bears bench him.

Chicago Bears Team Talk
Omiyale, Adams cut.
I don't know if anyone reads this sub forum anymore. Last post was in December. But this isn't really fantasy relevant news, except I guess it cuts the Bears' false starts in half. At least. So that's nice.
Offensive Line Troubles
Cutler: "Uh, you know..."
I would be remiss if I didn't point out the fact that Jay's stall habit of saying "uh, you know..." approximately 68 times per post practice interview is a bit ...
Briggs wants trade?
Notes from camp
Starting oline: Omiyale-Williams-Garza-Louis-Webb. Tice said Edwin Williams would have played C for the first team but he's not available until next Thursday. Carimi is rolling with the 2nd team. That's pretty normal under Lovie--nobody is handed ...

Draft Analysis
Round 8, Pick 8
A good passer on an always strong offense, Cutler is one of the two QBs I was targeting in the eighth round (Bulger being the other). He somewhat disappointed last year finishing 10th overall (not that much of a disappointment in my mind) so people are undervaluing him this year. I look for another top 10 performance this year.
Missing Brandon Marshall for however many games he misses because of suspension will hurt Cutler's stats for a bit, but his chemistry with Sheffler could make up for that early.
Draft Strategy
Well, one of the QBs fell to me in the correct round finally. This is what I need now and the price is right, easy pick. (Contributed by: Baron_Fel)

Round 8, Pick 1
Solid QB, put up good #'s last year while playing with undiagnosed diabetes. Could be even better this year while not dealing with massive weight loss, etc.
Marshall suspended for two games.
Draft Strategy
Deliberately left QB for a while but wanted to address it in this swing. Very happy to get my 7th ranked QB in the 8th round. Judging by the activity in the 8th/9th, I timed it right as he most definitely would not have come back to me .. round nine is working back to me and the best QB left on my board is now #14 ...

Round 7, Pick 10
Last year Cutler threw for nearly 3500 yds and had 20 TDs. I believe he has learned what Mike Shanahan has been trying to teach him. I feel he will be improving on his stats, perhaps approaching 3800-4000 passing yards and 20+ TDs.
Not having Brandon Marshall for at least 2 games will not help his numbers. There are a few question marks after Marshall as far a receivers go so his numbers could suffer in the 1st 2 games.
Draft Strategy
I had Cutler slated for my 7.10 pick and was happy to land him there. I like the rookie Eddie Royal to eventually earn the #2 spot. Marshall's suspension may affect his numbers for a couple of games, but I don't think too much. We shall see. It was between Cutler and Garrard for this pick and I decided on Cutler this year mainly because he will have Marshall to throw to. (Contributed by: RatSlinger)
