Each and every year Cutler finishes as a dissapointment to fantasy football owners who had drafted him telling themselves that "this is the year." Well, this year may actually be the year! What does that mean? Who really knows, but with a great receiving tandem in Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery to go along with Matt Forte gives Cutler three great passing targets to help get him to the next level. The veteran only has a few years left in his prime making this a year that if he doesn't do it now, he probably will never do it. Cutler must remain healthy and it irks me spending a QB1 quality draft pick on the guy, but with the quarterback position thinning out this season there isn't much else to choose at this point who have better upsides. Just make sure that you handcuff Cutler with another solid quarterback just in case he implodes. The Chicago gunslinger did have 6 20+ fantasy point games in 11 contests in 2013 so if he can carry his momentum over, then he could become one of the better fantasy bargains in 2014.

Cutler has the talent, system and weapons to be a top-5 fantasy passer. He just needs to stay on the field.
Flacco has the arm to do magical things, but does he have the system or weapons? Last year showed us he's probably not meant to throw the ball 40+ times a game.

The concern here with Cutler is that he’s missed 11 total games in the past 3 seasons. Last season Cutler threw 19 TD’s in 10 games in a Marc Trestman genius offense. Cutler is surrounded by exceptional talent in WR1 Brandon Marshall, WR2 Alshon Jeffery, RB Matt Forte and TE Martellus Bennett (A.K.A. The Black Unicorn) that offers Top Fantasy QB potential. The Bears released WR3 Earl Bennett in hopes that their former redshirt rookie WR Marquess Wilson will take over. Wilson was drafted in the 7th round, but is known for round 1 talent. The concern was his strength and he quit his college football team, a reason he was drafted so late. Wilson takes over as the WR3 spot in Chicago, although one shouldn’t expect a huge year, he’s a great 5th Option for Cutler. By the way, Cutler has a juicy Fantasy Playoff Schedule playing at home against DAL, NO and DET. If Cutler can remain healthy for a whole season (something he hasn’t done since 2009) he’ll be a sure fire Top 1o Fantasy QB. The question is, can he?
Flacco has adopted the Eli Manning label … confusing many beginner fantasy players with the idea that because he has won a Super Bowl, he’s going to be successful in my fantasy lineup. Wrong!

Cutler continues moping up my draft board. He's looked good in preseason, Alshon Jeffery is in his third year, Brandon Marshall is looking as good as ever, Matt Forte is going to catch a ton of passes and give Cutler passing yards as he runs with the ball and Marc Trestman is a genius.
 
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Trestman's air-friendly scheme and Cutler's talented offensive cast ooze upside.
How much will an aging Steve Smith really help?
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
So many positive signs here, but he hasn't earned much trust.
Just an average Joe. A very ordinary QB2.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Cutler has his new contract and will have the same head coach and offensive coordinator in back-to-back seasons for the first time in his career. He needs to stay healthy; I have my doubts. He just has not proven to be durable in recent years and rarely does that improve with age. He also has no value as a runner, which caps his upside compared to some of the younger quarterbacks.
Flacco was a disappointment in fantasy, but the Ravens improved their offensive line and added WR Steve Smith in free agency. I don't see Smith having a mega impact at his age and Flacco has no value in the running game with too many consistency issues throwing the ball.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
The Bears are showing commitment to him with his new deal, so he is expected to play all year and he has a ton of amazing targets around him.

Fantasy Team Advice
There are only 2 factors that hold Jay Cutler back from joining the top tier of QB's - health and INT's. He will always be a bit of a gunslinger, so if you are in a league that heavily weights INT's be sure to steer clear. In standard leagues with -1 for INT's it isn't as big a deal as the 12 missed games the last 3 years. Don't reach too early as the fragile Cutler is one of the more frustrating QB's to own when the inevitable injuries hit
Average QB is as nice a description as we can give here.. Shouldn't be high on anyone's radar
