Jay Cutler unproductive in fantasy return

Dilip Vishwanat

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler returned to the field after missing a game with a concussion, but did not put up big numbers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jay Cutler returned to the Bears lineup after suffering a concussion against the Houston Texans on Nov. 11 and led the Bears to a 28-10 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Cutler went 23-for-31 with 188 yards passing, one touchdown and one interception.

Cutler hit Matt Spaeth with a 13-yard TD pass late in the third quarter, but his favorite target was Brandon Marshall. Cutler targeted Marshall 17 times out of 31 total passes and completed 12 to his favorite wide receiver.

Fantasy Impact: Cutler hasn't been lighting up the fantasy score sheet this season, so these numbers should come as no surprise. In ten starts this season Cutler has only thrown for multiple touchdowns four times.

It seems that Cutler is fully recovered from his concussion as he looked his normal self on the field. He remains a solid backup option, but not someone you want to rely on as a starter.
