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.
