  Bears | Jay Cutler limited    Wed Sep 28, 03:27 PM

  Bears | Jay Cutler not guaranteed starting job    Wed Sep 28, 12:00 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is not guaranteed to be the starter whenever he's medically cleared to return, according to head coach John Fox. Cutler apparently pushed to start in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys but was not cleared.

Footballguys view: The Fox/Cutler relationship has been an interesting one to watch. Last year, Cutler seemed to win his coach over as Fox didn't seem too excited to have Cutler on the team when he took over. Now, Cutler may have fallen out of favor. It really depends on how Brian Hoyer continues to play in Cutler's absence. Either way, we think the Bears (and Fox) look to find a new QB this offseason.

  Bears | Jay Cutler doubtful     Fri Sep 23, 07:11 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

Footballguys view: There was some talk earlier in the week that Cutler might try to push to play, but that hasn't happened. Brian Hoyer will get the start, which is much worse for the Bears win/loss prospects than their passing game fantasy prospects.

  Bears | Jay Cutler remains out    Thu Sep 22, 02:36 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: No surprises here. It's Hoyer time! However, we would not go anywhere near Brian Hoyer this week against Dallas. Well, from a fantasy perspective, we mean. We're sure he's personally a nice chap. Just not in your lineup.

  Bears | Jay Cutler sits out    Wed Sep 21, 05:15 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: We're going to see Brian Hoyer this week for the Bears. Cutler is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with this thumb injury.

  Bears | Jay Cutler out 2-3 weeks    Wed Sep 21, 08:17 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is expected to miss two to three weeks, according to a source. His timeline depends on how he heals over the next three days.

Footballguys view: Cutler was uninspiring against the Eagles in Week 2...before and after the injury. The Bears are going to turn to Brian Hoyer while Cutler is out. He's a seasoned veteran who should be able to keep Alshon Jeffery fed.

  Bears | Jay Cutler won't need surgery    Tue Sep 20, 02:16 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) will not need surgery on his sprained thumb, according to head coach John Fox.

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran QB here, but it doesn't mean he's going to play in Week 3. The Bears treat injury information like National Security secrets, so don't expect much of an update before -- or even on -- Friday.

  Bears | Jay Cutler absence expected    Tue Sep 20, 10:53 AM

Updating earlier reports, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) is expected to miss a period of time, and the Bears are preparing for his absence. The question that remains is whether Cutler has surgery to repair the injury.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about his expected absence as more information is revealed about this injury. In the meantime, veteran QB Brian Hoyer takes over as the starter if/when Cutler is out. Hoyer may give Texans fans nightmares, but he's better than a lot of backups out there. We're not rushing to get Hoyer at all, but we feel he should do enough to keep properly feeding WR Alshon Jeffery for fantasy owners.

  Bears | Jay Cutler played through injury    Tue Sep 20, 10:21 AM

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (thumb) played in Week 2 with ligament damage he suffered in the season opener. One source said it's an injury that typically puts players out three to four weeks.

  Bears | Jay Cutler taken to locker room    Mon Sep 19, 10:23 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hand) was taken to the locker room near the end of the third quarter in Week 2 against the Philadelphia eagles Monday, Sept. 19. The training staff was looking at Cutler's hand on the sidelines. QB Brian Hoyer replaced him.

Footballguys view: Cutler injured his throwing hand early in the third quarter and did not look the same after the injury. The Bears could not move the ball much against an aggressive Eagles defense on Monday night.

  Bears | Jay Cutler trusts Eddie Royal     Sat Sep 17, 08:25 PM

  Bears | Kevin White working with Jay Cutler    Sat Jul 30, 12:50 AM

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White said QB Jay Cutler has taught him to use all of his speed when running routes in order to take advantage of Cutler's strong arm to put pressure on defensive backs.

Footballguys view: It may sound crazy to some, but White can't outrun Cutler's arm. As soon as he realizes that, the better it will be for their connection.

  Bears | Jay Cutler ready to ascend?    Wed Jul 20, 02:45 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler had a decent season in 2015, and with Dowell Loggains promoted from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator, it could be another big year for the veteran quarterback. He also gets WR Kevin White back from injury, and he could have a late-career bounce back season similar to that of New York Giants QB Eli Manning, San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers and Pittsburgh Steeler QB Ben Roethlisberger.

Footballguys view: Let's not get crazy here. Cutler is a decent starter, but he will still make bad decisions with the football (he led the NFL in turnovers for a QB in 2014). Last year was great, but former Bears OC Adam Gase (current Dolphins HC) is gone. Cutler's relationship with Loggains will help this transition, but we can only recommend the veteran QB as a low-end QB2 for fantasy owners in 2016.

  Bears | Kevin White building rapport with QB    Tue May 31, 09:59 PM

Chicago Bears WR Kevin White (shin) is building chemistry with QB Jay Cutler during organized team activities (OTAs), and the rapport building is in the early stages. As far as his health is concerned, he said Tuesday, May 31, that he has felt 100 percent for months.

Footballguys view: This is great news for the Bears, and White looks like he could be a tremendous value for fantasy owners. His current ADP of WR35 (7.10) in 12-team PPR leagues is a position he could easily outperform in 2016. We feel White has at least WR2 upside for fantasy owners so long as he can stay healthy.

  Bears | Jay Cutler to have same offense    Sat May 14, 08:14 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will work with an offense that has the same shell and language as last season, according to offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, and Loggains said his strong relationship with Cutler will help offset the departure of Adam Gase.

Footballguys view: Cutler was able to thrive under Gase last year. Having the same system for him this year (even with Gase gone) should greatly help Cutler continue his solid play. From a fantasy perspective, Cutler should perform like a top-20 QB and a QB2/bye week filler.

  Bears | Chicago in the market for a QB?    Sun Apr 17, 08:57 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler's guaranteed money on his seven-year extension has all been paid, and beat writer Dan Wiederer believes the fact that the team isn't locked into keeping Cutler beyond 2016 makes it more likely the Bears will draft a quarterback at some point in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Don't be surprised if the Bears take a quarterback in the first or second round of the draft. Cutler does not seem to be their long-term solution at the position. He played well last year under former OC Adam Gase, but Cutler seems to be entering another make-or-break season in 2016.

  Bears | Chicago last in NFL in offensive spending    Thu Feb 25, 07:18 PM

The Chicago Bears have $48.11 million invested in offensive players as free agency approaches. The Bears are projected to be $58.3 million under the cap. QB Jay Cutler's cap hit makes up a team-high 10.9% of the allocated money for 2016.

Footballguys view: With youngsters like Jeremy Langford and Kevin White taking over, the low payroll makes sense. Of course, it makes you think that getting a long term deal for Alshon Jeffery is also reasonable to expect. This could be a solid offense this year, especially if Jeffery remains either with an extension or a franchise tag.

  Bears | Jay Cutler was a bright spot    Thu Feb 25, 01:27 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler was 'one of (the) brightest spots' during his first full season with the organization, head coach John Fox said Wednesday, Feb. 24.

Footballguys view: Cutler is their guy for now, and with many other changes being made (the departure of Matt Forte) and players who could be exiting (though they will tag Alshon Jeffery as a short term solution), having one piece for sure could be critical. Cutler had one of the better seasons of his career in 2015 and the Bears will try to build on that going forward.

  Bears | John Fox confident in Jay Cutler    Wed Feb 24, 02:05 PM

Chicago Bears head coach John Fox feels much better about QB Jay Cutler going into their second year together. Cutler cut back on his turnovers after leading the NFL in interceptions in 2014, and he rebounded by posting a career-high 92.3 passer rating.

Footballguys view: Cutler actually improved last year despite his fantasy numbers taking a step back. With a healthy Kevin White and a likely return of Alshon Jeffery, Cutler will get a boost in fantasy. The conservative nature of the offense could still keep him from being more than a streamer this season.

  Bears | Chicago GM confident in Jay Cutler    Mon Jan 4, 08:48 PM

The Chicago Bears plan to build the offense around QB Jay Cutler, and general manager Ryan Pace said Monday, Jan. 4, that the team has 'extreme confidence' in the veteran quarterback.

Footballguys view: Things change in the NFL, and Chicago's stance on Cutler has taken a 180 degree turn since last offseason. At the Scouting Combine, the team seemed non-committal about Cutler's future with the Bears. Now, he's back as their franchise quarterback after a solid season under new OC Adam Gase. The bad news? Gase is likely to move on to be a head coach elsewhere in 2016. That could negatively impact Cutler for this upcoming season.

  Bears | Jay Cutler limiting mistakes    Wed Dec 30, 10:50 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has eight interceptions this season. If he avoids throwing four interceptions in Week 17, he'll have the fewest picks he has thrown in a season since he threw seven in 10 games in 2011.

Footballguys view: Cutler has really taken to Adam Gase's offense. If Gase leaves to be a head coach elsewhere, it will be interesting to see how Cutler responds to a new offensive coordinator. After a shaky future for Cutler in Chicago earlier this year, it seems like he's found a new lease on (football) life with the Bears.

  Bears | Jay Cutler posts solid stats    Sun Dec 20, 05:11 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler went 26-for-37 for 231 yards, two touchdowns and one interception against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Cutler had two turnovers and the Bears offense wasn't potent before or after Alshon Jeffery went out. They have a good matchup against Tampa next week, but Cutler might not have the support to take advantage of it.

  Bears | Jay Cutler overcomes family tragedy    Sun Dec 13, 06:37 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Dec. 13, in a 24-21 loss to the Washington Redskins. Cutler practiced and played despite a family tragedy. A body believed to be Cutler's brother-in-law, Michael Cavallari, was found in Utah earlier in the week.

Footballguys view: Cutler was very creative and accounted for most of the Bears offense today. He'll be worth a look for streamers against the Vikings next week.

  Bears | Jay Cutler throws pick six in loss    Sun Dec 6, 06:39 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler was 18 of 31 for 202 yards and a touchdown in a 26-20 overtime loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He also threw a pick-six to 49ers SS Jimmie Ward.

Footballguys view: Cutler was cold in this one against a San Francisco defense that had been very easy to solve on the road. Next week's Washington matchup looks good on paper too, but Cutler will be hard to trust.

  Bears | Jay Cutler struggles in Week 11    Sun Nov 22, 05:59 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler went 18-for-32 for 265 yards and one interception against the Denver Broncos in Week 11. Cutler also lost a fumble in the fourth quarter of the game.

Footballguys view: Cutler earned everything he got, held back by the lack of Alshon Jeffery, especially in the red zone. If he doesn't have Jeffery, it's hard to want to start Cutler, even though he's playing well. Cutler takes the field on Thanksgiving at Green Bay.

  Bears | Jay Cutler tosses three TDs    Sun Nov 15, 09:40 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler completed 19 of his 24 pass attempts for 258 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 10 game against the St. Louis Rams. He also ran three times for 24 yards.

Footballguys view: Cutler wasn't dissecting the Rams defense, but he and his teammates executed and the Rams overaggressive ways allowed short passes to turn into long touchdowns. We'll bench Cutler against his old Broncos team next week, but down the stretch he could help our teams.

  Bears | Jay Cutler sets Bears record    Tue Nov 10, 12:15 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler set a franchise record with his 138th career touchdown pass in the Week 9 win over the San Diego Chargers Monday, Nov. 9, passing former QB Sid Luckman. Cutler went 27-for-40 for 345 yards and two touchdowns, but he also fumbled and threw an interception that was run back for a score.

Footballguys view: Cutler is playing well under Bears OC Adam Gase. Many thought this would be the final season for Cutler in Chicago, but it seems like he's bought into this system. He might be playing himself into the future of the Bears.

  Bears | Jay Cutler is a turnover machine    Mon Nov 9, 09:14 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler lost a fumble in the first half of the Week 9 game against the San Diego Chargers Monday, Nov. 9.

  Bears | Jay Cutler comfortable in system    Thu Oct 29, 07:54 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler appears comfortable in offensive coordinator Adam Gase's offensive system that is similar to what Gase used with QB Peyton Manning the last couple of years with the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: He's healthy and he should be able to put together a solid QB2 kind of day, especially with Alshon Jeffery back and healthy as well. Minnesota has a solid defense, but even if the Bears lose, they should be able to move the chains enough to have some good production from Cutler.

  Bears | Jay Cutler says he isn't full strength    Thu Oct 8, 10:04 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) said his injured hamstring isn't 100%, but he is going to push through it. 'I feel better, I do,' Cutler said Thursday, Oct. 8. 'I'm still not exactly where I want to be, but it is what it is, and we have a lot of guys banged up out here. I'll just make do.'

Footballguys view: Cutler still moved well and is set up a for good game against a Chiefs secondary that has been giving up a lot of yards and touchdowns. He's a fine bye week fill-in or bench QB.

  Bears | Jay Cutler listed as limited    Thu Oct 8, 06:16 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 8.

Footballguys view: Cutler should be ready to go in Week 5. Most of you will have a better QB to start this week. However, for those with banged up QBs Cutler makes an interesting option this week against the Chiefs.

  Bears | Jay Cutler limited Wednesday    Wed Oct 7, 07:45 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Footballguys view: They'll be a little cautious with Cutler as nobody wants a return to the Jimmy Clausen era. We see Cutler as a solid QB2--a guy who will get decent yards and scores, but is prone to some bad beats and going up against a decent Chiefs defense.

  Bears | Jay Cutler tosses two scores in return    Sun Oct 4, 08:28 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) completed 28 of 43 passes for 281 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 22-20 win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Cutler looked very good, just as he did before his pick six and hamstring injury on the tackle attempt in Week 2. He's worth a look for QB streamers or Cam Newton bye coverage next week at the Chiefs.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) hopes to play in the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders, but the team is worried about the possibility of Cutler reinjuring his hamstring.

  Bears | Jay Cutler could be game-time call    Fri Oct 2, 10:34 AM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) could be a game-time decision for Week 4 against the Oakland Raiders.

  Bears | Jay Cutler limited again    Thu Oct 1, 02:39 PM

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 1, and he assessed that he is day to day.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 30, according to head coach John Fox. Fox said Cutler looked good and had a good day of practice after missing Week 3.

Footballguys view: Originally, Cutler had been expected to miss a minimum of two games. Cutler must prove he can avoid the rush and escape the pocket before he'll be allowed to return. This week against the Raiders, his playing status is up in the air.

Footballguys view: Jimmy Clausen is walking into an ambush in Seattle, so other than maybe Martellus Bennett, there's no part of the Bears passing game that you want to mess with this week. Matt Forte will be usual valiant self in a lost cause.
