Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Jay Cutler

Jonathan Daniel

The Bears' quarterback is set to return to action in Week 10. Can he return to the top-10 fantasy quarterback rankings? We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler practiced with the team all week and is fully expected to make his return to action in their Week 10 game against the Detroit Lions. Cutler went down with a groin injury in Week 7 against the Washington Redskins and has had three weeks to rehab.

Before the injury, Cutler was on pace to have one of his best fantasy seasons. He had passed for 1,658 yards, 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions at a 64.9 percent completion rate. After finishing the last two seasons under 59 percent, it was encouraging to see him rebound by a healthy margin for a career high. With the arrival of productive tight end Martellus Bennett and the emergence of second-year receiver Alshon Jeffery to compliment star receiver Brandon Marshall, Cutler's improved play makes sense.

Fantasy Impact: With Cutler in no danger to miss this week's game, owners who drafted him as their QB1 should reinsert him into starting lineups. The Detroit Lions do not present a tough defensive match up. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has their offense firing on all cylinders and this game has shootout written all over it. While Cutler does present some risk, go ahead and start him assuming you don't have another QB1 option.
