In the fantasy football realm, that will leave mixed reactions, with the negative ones undoubtedly coming from Josh McCown's fantasy owners. McCown has averaged 352 yards per game over the last three contests, and ranks as the No. 5 quarterback in fantasy points during the weeks he has started.
As for Cutler owners who kept him stashed, there could hardly be a better situation for the quarterback to inherit. The Bears' offense is lighting up scoreboards left and right, and with three of the best skill positions in the game to utilize in Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte, the sky is the limit in terms of upside.
Fantasy Spin: All of this isn't to say that Cutler does not have factors working against him this week. Cutler has not seen game action in over a month, and he completed 52 percent of his passes against a susceptible Detroit Lions secondary in his last start. His job will not be easy for Week 15 versus a Browns defense that has allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. It's easy to see Cutler's upside this week, but don't be surprised if he shows rust and busts. Consider him a low-end QB1 with a high ceiling. Jeffery, Marshall and Forte all remain high-upside plays as well.
