Fantasy Football Week 7: Jay Cutler Likes To Turn The Ball Over, A Lot

Coming into the season, QB Jay Cutler was primed for a big year due to Mike Martz coming in to run the offense. Big things were supposed to be in store for the quarterback with the new, pass-heavy offense installed.

Things haven't worked out like they were supposed to.

Today, Cutler threw four interceptions, and also fumbled once as well. His numbers were not good, as he completed 26 of 40 passes for 281 yards and only one touchdown. The Bears had 14 passing first downs, yet they scored only 14 points, but seven of which were defensive off an interception return. 

Cutler made some errant passes today, often throwing at receivers' feet or behind them also. It does not help that Bears field one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, and he was facing a lot of pressure all day. However, Redskins do not force many sacks, and Cutler should have done better in the pocket.

Five turnovers and one offensive touchdown doesn't cut it, and the Redskins benefited greatly en route to a 17-14 victory.

Fantasy Football Week 7: Some Key Players Are Active For 4 PM Games

Eddie Royal and Darren McFadden have both been listed as active today. Royal's Denver Broncos face Darren McFadden's Oakland Raiders in one of today's 4 pm match ups. Royal will at most feature as a third string wide receiver, out of the slot, and fantasy owners should be wary of his status throughout the game. McFadden's hamstring appears to be feeling well enough to at least handle some of the rushing work load. Rotoworld.com believes that "McFadden has severely outplayed Michael Bush so far, though the two backs could split touches with McFadden being eased back in. We suspect today's game will be a "hot hand" situation."

The problem for McFadden is with the Oakland passing game. Rob Gronkowski is not starting due to his shoulder injury, which means that Jason Campbell will be taking over under center for the Raiders. The Raiders have had little success through the air with Campbell dropping back and are likely to give the ball to Michael Bush and McFadden.

Fantasy Football Week 7: Cardinals WR Steve Breaston Ruled Out

Multiple sources are reporting that Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Steve Breaston has been ruled out for today's game. Breaston's knee is still bothering him and he would have been limited if he had been activated. With Breaston out rookie wide receiver Andre Roberts will start across from Larry Fitzgerald. Undrafted quarterback Max Hall has already faced plenty of adversity this season and Breaston not playing is another blow to his offensive options.

Fantasy Football Week 7: 'Niners Suffering Stingers Left And Right

Three San Francisco 49ers have suffered stingers in the first quarter of the 'Niners game against the Carolina Panthers. First it was left tackle Joe Staley, who was replaced by Adam Snyder. Then his fellow offensive lineman Chilo Rachal also left the field with a stinger and Synder replaced him at right guard when Staley returned to the field after his own stinger. Rookie free safety Taylor Mays had a stinger of his own during the first quarter.  Reggie Smith filled in for Mays.

Fantasy Football Week 7: Roethlisberger Out To Strong Start

QB Ben Roethlisberger fumbled early, but since then he has been shredding the Dolphins' secondary. He just put the Steelers ahead 10-6, on a 21-yard strike to WR Hines Ward. The Steelers QB has completed 9 of 13 passes, for 110 yards and one touchdown also. He looks comfortable, and could be poised to have a big day passing.

Fantasy Football Week 7: DT Kelly Gregg Goes Down, Ravens Don't Have An Active Backup

Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Kelly Gregg left today's Ravens - Buffalo Bills game with a leg injury. The main problem for the Ravens is not the loss of Gregg (whose status is still unknown) but rather the fact that they deactivated Gregg's backup, rookie defensive tackle Terrance Cody, for today's game.

Fantasy Football Week 7: Donovan McNabb Throws A Touchdown To The Wrong Team

Washington Redskins QB Donovan McNabb just threw a touchdown pass -- unfortunately for him it was to the Chicago Bears. McNabb tried to force one over the middle but Bears CB D.J. Moore intercepted it and took it the distance, giving the Bears an early -0 lead. However, he just lead his team back down the field and found Santana Moss in the end zone for a touchdown. McNabb is 8/14 with 111 yards, with one touchdown and one interception.

Fantasy Football Week 7: Vernon Davis Involved Early, Catches Touchdown Pass

Niners QB Alex Smith has a very target, and that said target is Vernon Davis. The two hooked up on a 53-yard pass, and then also a one-yard touchdown pass directly after. Every week for San Francisco is a "must-win" game from here on out, and they are taking this game in Carolina very seriously early. Davis has two catches for 54 yards and one touchdown.

Fantasy Football Week 7: Steelers Two Fumbles Lead To Miami Field Goals

Hold on to the football!

Fantasy Football News Week 7: Concussions Keep Jackson, Massaquoi Out But Cooley Will Play

The Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson and the Cleveland Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi have both been declared inactive due to concussions suffered in last week's NFL action. Jackson suffered a severe concussion due to a blow from Atlanta Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson. Massaquoi was one of two Browns casualties (the other being Joshua Cribbs, who appears to be active for today's match up versus the New Orleans Saints) from Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison hits. Chris Cooley, however, is active at tight end for the Washington Redskins, despite suffering a concussion of his own last week versus the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Football News Week 7: Ed Reed Will Start For The Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed will be making his return to the field for the first time this season and will most likely start for the Ravens versus the Buffalo Bills. The Ravens activated Reed off of the PUP list (physically unable to perform) today and Reed is expected to not only make his first appearance of the season but also his first regular season start for the Ravens since week 17 of last season. The Ravens back up for Reed, Tom Zbikowski, is out for today's game with a heel injury.
