Consistency has always been the issue for
After opening the season with multiple touchdowns in each of his first five games, Cutler has just two over the last two games. He completed 61.8 percent of his 34 passes Sunday, but managed just 190 yards through the air in Week 7 against the Dolphins, mostly because he could not get on the same page with Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall -- he completed just eight of 17 passes to that duo for 57 yards Sunday. That is obviously not the key to success for him.
When things are going well for Cutler, there is little doubt he can be a strong Fantasy contributor, as he showed in putting up 20-plus Fantasy points in each of his first six games. He will try to get back to that level in Week 8, against a Patriots defense that is surrendering 22.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks over the last four games.
Cutler was picked off by Reshad Jones in the second quarter. He bounced back from a slow start with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Matt Forte on the opening drive of the second half, but failed to do much else the rest of the way. He compiled 190 yards through the air while completing 21 of 34 attempts. He added one touchdown and one interception, registering 74.4 passer rating. He was sacked three times and rushed for three yards on two attempts.
Cutler will look to bounce back Week 8 at New England.
"I thought Jay had an excellent game," Trestman said, per The Chicago Tribune. "He played a complete game. He took care of the football, No. 1. I thought he managed the game very well, managed the adversity that we had in the game. He took some hits, was able to respond to that. We were backed up a few times. We had some long drives. I thought overall he played a very clean game."
Cutler consistently picked up chunks of yardage through the air, averaging 10 yards per attempt, but his one scoring strike came from just three yards out. He also set up a touchdown with a 74-yard bomb to Alshon Jeffery. Cutler added a two-point conversion and 11 rushing yards to his line as well. The Bears quarterback has racked up 1,676 passing yards and 13 touchdowns through six games while tossing just six picks. Cutler will sqaure off with the Dolphins in Week 7.
Cutler racked up three touchdowns, his fifth multi-score game in a row to open the season, and he did it in a different way than in the past. Entering Sunday's game, all 10 of his touchdown passes had gone to his tight ends or wide receivers, with running back Matt Forte failing to get into the action. However, Forte was the crutch Cutler leaned on all game long Sunday, as the two connected for 105 yards and a touchdown in the game.
Cutler also added a touchdown with his legs, as he finished with 27 Fantasy points. Cutler has been picked off twice in three of his five games, but has still managed to reach at least 20 Fantasy points in each of his games. Cutler has a great matchup on the way in Week 6 against the Falcons, and should be active in nearly all Fantasy leagues.
