Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
He has really been stepping up his game in the last few weeks, putting up solid fantasy numbers in the process. Against the Packers this week, he will once again be relied upon to move the ball down the field through the air.
Passsing: 255 Yards, 2 TD, 1 INT.
Rushing: 14 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.

Passing: 3450 Yards, 25 TD, 14 INT.
Rushing: 175 Yards, 1 TD.

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 11, Pick 1
Looked good later in the year last season, showing a comfort level with Mike Martzís system. Poised to be a fantasy relevant QB this year potential as a low end #1 at a #2 price.
Throughout his career he has been known as a poor decision maker and throws too many interceptions.
Draft Strategy
AS my #2 I only expect a big game week 5 (against Detroit). The match-up is good where Cutler posted his best statistical game against the Lions last season. (Contributed by: Mad_Puppy)

Round 12, Pick 4
Laser-Rocket arm...
... with a malfunction aiming system.
Draft Strategy
Suitable backup for Freeman. Can he get back to being an elite QB? I doubt it, but Ill only be starting him once ;) (Contributed by: und2006)

Round 9, Pick 5
Cutler is the unquestioned starter in Chicago, which is again running a Mike Martz offense. The image of him on the sideline in last year's playoff loss will push him down on many draft sheets, he's healthy and ready to prove he is one of the top QBs in the league.
He has always been prone to making bad decisions and throwing more interceptions than he should.
Draft Strategy
I believe that Cutler will end up the season as one of the top 10 fantasy producters at QB. He's an excellent selection for the fantasy owner that is willing to wait until the middle of the draft to grab their first QB. (Contributed by: doug_coutts)
