Cutler and crew should be able to perform to par, keeping up with Rodgers and the Packers. But then again, the Lions/Packers game was expected to be full of fireworks, yet it ended up being a defensive battle. You have to love the NFL. This is why they play the games!
Smith is a low-end QB3 in deeper leagues most weeks. This week though plenty of top quarterbacks are sitting out due to bye-weeks, so because of that coupled with a few key injuries, Smith sees his value bumped up to the low-end QB2 rank in deeper fantasy formats.
