Last week aside, Cutler has been very good this season. Expect him and the Bears offense to perform better this week. Not get a win, but play better.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Patriots are just 15th against fantasy quarterbacks over the last 3 weeks, but Cutler has not been playing well enough to warrant more than QB2 consideration.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Pats pass D is not a good matchup on the road but its Cutler and Bears somehow good away from home this year.
ATL has been bad and they're not at home this week so pretty tough to trust a team that is 0-4 outside of Georgia.
