Jay Cutler pulled together a productive afternoon after four inactive weeks. Cutler finished with 265 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns. While he may have finished with solid fantasy numbers, it was far from a flawless afternoon for Cutler. Both of his interceptions came earlier in the game, and both came off of targets to receiver Brandon Marshall. Cutler started out the afternoon a bit erratic. He avoided any turnovers in the second half of the game, leading the Chicago Bears to a 38-31 victory.
Fantasy impact: It was never expected to be an easy matchup to begin with. Cleveland can be a difficult defense for fantasy quarterbacks, especially when playing the Browns on their home field. There was also concern that Cutler may not be able to put in a complete game without suffering a setback. He managed a complete game while ultimately putting up solid fantasy numbers. Cutler will be in the discussion as a low-end QB1 against a vulnerable Philadelphia Eagles secondary in Week 16.
