Jay Cutler, QB, Chicago Bears Player Profile Height/Weight: 6-3/220 Birthdate: 4/29/1983 School: Vanderbilt FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS Year in and year out the Chicago Bears Jay Cutler is always thought of as being one of the young quarterbacks who will break out at his position. Decked out with arm strength, agility, a good sense of seeing down field and being very good at progressive reads, it is usually hard to argue against that train of thought. Yet year after year Cutler remains one of the most frustrating fantasy football players to own, no matter the size of your league. Thankfully though, for all the Chicago fans in the Windy City who have been waiting patiently for a quarterback to lead this team to Super Bowl glory, things were about to change. The stars were about to align just right as wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who just recently starred in the Pro Bowl representing the Miami Dolphins was traded to the Bears and reuniting Marshall with his former gunslinger quarterback. They, as teammates in 2008, watched Cutler throw for over 4,500 yards back in 2008 with the Denver Broncos. Happy days were here again…. um, wait a minute. Didn’t you just read that first paragraph? Cutler is one of the most frustrating fantasy football players and brings torment to his owners on a  yearly basis! Things didn’t go anything as planned. Cutler for the third straight year had failed to pass for 3,300 yards and has never, not even once, passed for more than 27 touchdowns. There is some bright side though. Bears head coach Marc Trestman has had a few heart to hearts with Cutler this off-season and has promised the soon to be 30-year-old a brand new bicycle, some Transformers and to top it off, some actual offensive talent minus Marshall and Matt Forte. Granted, while this all sounds good, there are a few things to remember. The first being that the Bears offensive line isn’t the greatest group of football players put together. They are going to need to play much better as a unit to protect the quarterback as Cutler has been used and abused worse than… well let’s just not go there. The point being, there are many ways to skin a cat and at the same time there really is only one way to look at Cutler’s 2013 fantasy football value. He is and will remain a mid-to-low end QB2 in deeper fantasy formats who will rise to the occasion sparingly to help a unknowing fantasy owner out by giving him plenty of bench points. Take him in the latter part of your draft knowing that while there can be worse, there still is plenty better. And one last thing, don’t fall into the belief that a lot of people will have if Cutler does get surrounded with that offensive talent that he is being promised, which is that he could have a break out year. He is going to be 30 before the NFL Draft even takes place. He is going to have to have a career year and a half for him to come close to putting up pretty solid QB1 numbers. Or in other words, don’t expect much.   (Updated 2/27/13) UPDATES None. The post Fantay Football Player Profile – Jay Cutler, QB appeared first on FFLockerRoom.
