Jay Cutler injury: Would not have practiced had there been practice, fantasy value still low

Jonathan Daniel

Will the Bears have their starting quarterback healthy enough to play against the Packers? We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (neck) would not have practiced on Wednesday if the team had practiced, which they did not. Cutler left Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings with the injury and was replaced by Jason Campbell.

Even if he hadn't been hurt, you could have speculated that Cutler was pulled for having a bad performance against the Vikings: He was 22-of-44 for 260 yards, 1 TD and 2 INT in the loss. Campbell was 6-for-9 for 65 yards, 1 TD and 0 INT in Cutler's stead. The Bears have a pivotal re-match with the Packers in Week 15.

Fantasy Take: Cutler is likely going to play, but is still not a very worthy fantasy option. If your league starts two quarterbacks than he is an option at QB2 but otherwise should remain on the bench. It would be better news for Brandon Marshall however that Cutler is in there.
