|Is this the year Cutler emerges as a solid fantasy starting quarterback with the Bears? While Cutler has been a solid performer for two consecutive years after struggling in his first year with the team in 2009, he hasnít emerged as a solid fantasy producer and the explanation has been two-fold. One, the team has lacked playmakers at the wide receiver position. Two, he has been saddled playing behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league. In 2012, the Bears addressed the wide receiver position with the acquisition of Brandon Marshall and by drafting Alshon Jeffery in the second round. Unfortunately, they did little to improve the leaky offensive line. The reality of it is Cutler is unlikely to see a big improvement in his production this season. The team doesnít really know what it has in Jeffery, Devin Hester and Earl Bennett and they lack a receiving threat at tight end. Even with Marshall in the fold, Cutler is unlikely to top the 3,666 passing yards he had in his first season in Chicago. He is a mid to lower-tier fantasy backup.

Shoulder injury could sideline Bears QB for the rest of the season
|The Bears don't think quarterback Jay Cutler is done for the season just yet.
Coach John Fox said that Cutler's right shoulder injury is "not season-ending, contrary to the reports you hear." He added that he is not sure if Cutler will definitely be out against the Titans on Sunday.
FF Today's Take: John Fox is simply trying to cast a smoke screen in the direction the Titans. Actions tell the story here with Cutler reportedly seeking out a second opinion and the team signing David Fales to serve as Matt Barkley's backup.

FF Today's Take: Brian Hoyer will step in for Cutler and be a mid-range QB2. The Chicago offense should remain status quo despite the QB change. The Bears face the Cowboys on Sunday night football in Week 3.
