Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler put together an average fantasy outing against the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football, throwing for 150 yards and a touchdown but adding 35 rushing yards to his total.
Cutler was thrown down by Ndamukong Suh before halftime, injuring his ribs. The injury clearly affected Cutler's play and the Bears' game plan in the second half.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners were hoping for more from Cutler against a generous Lions secondary, but a quick look at the hit he took from Suh should make fantasy players a bit more understanding. It's incredible that Cutler made it through the rest of the game after that hit.
Cutler hasn't had the greatest fantasy season thus far, as he has been characteristically inconsistent. Still, he's a good spot start if the matchup is right.
