Jay Cutler inactive for MNF, as expected: Fantasy value shelved for another week

Jonathan Daniel

Jay Cutler is inactive for MNF against the 49ers, as expected. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (concussion) is officially inactive for Monday Night Football against the San Francisco 49ers. This news comes as no surprise as Cutler was already ruled out earlier in the week. He suffered a concussion against the Texans and remains week-to-week. This is the sixth diagnosed concussion of his career.

Jason Campbell will get the start tonight. He had a dismal performance in bad weather last week as the Bears lost 13-6.

Fantasy Impact: Note that I mentioned "diagnosed" concussion. Who knows how many minor ones Cutler sustained playing behind the Bears' turnstile O-line. We will continue monitoring his status.

This game could be a defensive slugfest with ugly offense, so fantasy owners should avoid Campbell until he shows some competence.
