Jay Cutler injury update: Fantasy status probable despite multiple ailments

Jonathan Daniel

Jay Cutler is expected to start for the Bears against the Packers despite neck and knee injuries. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jay Cutler is expected to start for the Chicago Bears in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers. He was held out of practice Wednesday and limited Thursday due to a stiff neck and a sprained MCL. Cutler was a full participant Friday, however, before being listed as probable on the Bears' injury report.

Cutler has struggled in recent weeks, throwing four touchdowns to three interceptions over the course of his last three games. Last week, he averaged just 5.9 yards per attempt in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners should be less worried about Cutler's healthy and more worried about his numbers. On the year, he ranks 20th in the league with just 16 passing touchdowns, and ranks ninth with 13 interceptions. He has yet to string together two good passing performances, and he goes up against an opportunistic Packers defense. If you can, avoid starting him this week.
