Jay Cutler got in full practice this week and is probable against the Panthers. We break down the fantasy implications.
Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (ribs) is officially listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Cutler was briefly knocked out of last Monday's game with a vicious shot from Ndamukong Suh, but later came in and finished the game. He got a full week of practice in and is fully expected to suit up on Sunday.
Cutler has completed 56.7% of his passes for 1,359 yards, eight TDs and seven INTs.
Fantasy Impact: It could have been a lot worse. That was a scary hit he took from Suh, and most assumed he would be done for the game, if not longer.
Cutler is an enigma to fantasy owners - he could either throw for 300 yards or have a three-INT meltdown, so he's far too inconsistent to start every week. However, he has a juicy matchup against Carolina's dismal secondary. Fantasy owners can slot him in as a QB2 this week.
