Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has solid outing against Indianapolis. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

On Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler led his team to a Week 1 victory. The Bears QB went 21-of-35 for 333 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. This was a good sign for owners of Cutler, to see him put up 300-plus and multiple TD's in what used to be a run-first offense.

Fantasy Analysis: Cutler was a late rounder in most fantasy drafts, but has proven to be a solid pickup. The Bears QB has a brand new arsenal of weapons, as the Chicago offense may finally eclipse it's headlining defense. With Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and weapons like Matt Forte as an outlet receiver, Cutler has some solid receiving options. These 300-plus yarders may become the norm for Cutler.
