Cutler completed 19 of 33 pass attempts for 151 yards, two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 20-17 win over the Falcons. Cutler posted an underwhelming 4.6 yards per attempt on the day, but third-quarter touchdown passes to Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry afforded him a palatable fantasy performance. He struggled in the first half, but a marked improvement after the break coincided with an impressive comeback to earn the victory. The veteran has totaled just 407 yards over the last three games, throwing one interception in each contest, though, and he's struggling mightily to make plays downfield. Solid contributions from the running game and the defense have Miami sitting at 3-2, but Cutler remains a lackluster fantasy option next week against the Jets.
Cutler completed 12 of 26 passes for 92 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 16-10 win over Tennessee. He also scrambled twice for eight yards. Cutler looked completely inept for the third consecutive week but was able to narrowly edge out Matt Cassel and the Titans thanks to a six-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry with 10:33 to play. The veteran quarterback has led Miami to just 22 points over the past three weeks while throwing for only 476 yards in that stretch. He also lost wide receiver DeVante Parker to an ankle injury in this one, so even deep-league owners should be able to find better alternatives if Parker has to miss time.
Cutler is slated to remain the Dolphins' starting QB on Sunday in Tennessee, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Cutler has had back-to-back poor performances versus two of the leagues supposed weaker defenses in the Jets and Saints, so rumors have started to float that the team might consider starting Matt Moore in his place. Coach Adam Gase shot those down after the loss to New Orleans, but another poor performance versus a Titans defense that just got shredded by a rookie quarterback could make it difficult for Gase to not to give some consideration to removing Cutler from the starting role.
Cutler completed 20 of 28 passes for 164 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 20-0 loss to the Saints in London. He also gained five yards on his sole rush and fumbled once. Cutler's loose ball was recovered by the Dolphins, but he was nowhere near as lucky on the opening drive of the contest, throwing an interception in the end zone to snuff out an early scoring opportunity. It was the second consecutive inefficient effort for Cutler and the Dolphins offense as a whole, with their struggles leading to a grand total of six points in the last two weeks. After a solid opener against the Chargers in which he was mistake-free and averaged nearly seven yards per attempt, Cutler has thrown a pick in the subsequent pair of games and averaged under six yards per throw in both contests. It appears that the more undesirable aspects of the veteran's game have surfaced quickly in his new digs, but he'll look to rebound in a home contest against the Titans in Week 5.
Cutler completed 24 of 33 passes for 230 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Chargers. He rushed twice for a loss of one yard. Cutler was a reasonable facsimile of Ryan Tannehill in the opener, firing a 29-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Stills in the third quarter and remaining largely conservative while averaging 7.0 yards per attempt. The veteran signal caller likely benefited from the absence of ballhawk Jason Verrett (knee) and displayed an outstanding rapport with Jarvis Landry, who he connected with on a whopping 13 occasions on the afternoon. Cutler also may have gotten a bit fortunate on DeVante Parker's impressive 31-yard catch late in the third quarter, as the third-year wideout likely prevented an interception by reaching over the top of safety Tre Boston to make the catch on a slightly underthrown ball. A balanced offensive attack that saw Jay Ajayi grind out 122 yards also worked in Cutler's favor, and given the overall results, Sunday's recipe is likely one that head coach Adam Gase will strive to replicate as often as possible this season. Cutler will look to build on his solid Dolphins debut in a Week 3 road tilt versus the Jets.
