Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice on Wednesday downplayed a sideline incident with quarterback Jay Cutler. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was seen getting off the bench and walking away from offensive coordinator Mike Tice during Monday night's win over the Dallas Cowboys but Tice on Wednesday downplayed the incident. Tice said things sometimes get heated during a game but that "Jay and I are good." Cutler threw for 275 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions against Dallas.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners certainly had no problems on Monday with Cutler, who turned in arguably his best game of the season. Cutler may not be the most likable player in the NFL but fantasy owners drafted him for point, not his personality. He will not be the most consistent quarterback but there are weeks when patience with him will pay off for fantasy owners. Week 5 against Jacksonville could be one of those games.
