Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
 New up tempo offense should increase his attempts and numbers. But he does have a tough test week one against one of the top defenses in the league. The Bengals were second in sacks and sixth best in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. This will be a great time to see just how good Cutler can be this year, but i don't think I want him starting on my team in week 1.  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
 Cutler has fantasy backup written all over him. If youíve ever seen a Chicago game or even highlights, explaining further is unnecessary. Iím not confident that they have fixed the offensive line or the interception rate of Cutler. His inconsistency worries me and should not be in lineups gunning for championships.  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Sports Empire
San Diego gave up the 11th most fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 18.5.BENCH - Cincinnati gave up the 6th fewest fantasy points to Quarterbacks last season with 13.5.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Chargers could be tough on the road and Schaub is pretty inconsistent.Cutler could combust into flames here, but he is at home and new offense could see him thrive.  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Schaub quietly puts up nearly 4,000 yards every season. He's nowhere near Brady or Peyton, but he's steady and won't murder you with mistakes. Problem is, the Texans run the ball so much these days that Schaub doesn't really have the opportunities to put up big-time numbers anymore.New head coach Marc Trestman has a history of fixing quarterbacks. Unfortunately, it's the offensive line for the Bears that needs fixing. Cutler has a tremendous rapport with Brandon Marshall, and Alshon Jeffery is a promising talent. But if Cutler is having to run for his life behind that shaky O-line all year long, he'll have a hard time being consistently relevant in fantasy.  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Finally gets an impact receiver across from Andre JohnsonQb1 upside but will likely be no better than a QB2 most weeks despite improvement from Alshon Jeffery  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Schaub is a better QB in reality than fantasy. He manages the game, and converts key 3rd Downs. What he does not do, is put up any shootouts. The Texans win with their running game, to set up the playaction. While Hopkins may be the answer to the #2 WR role, the Texans do not throw the ball more than 30 Times a game.Cutler and Brandon Marshall is a dream connection. Cutler throws a great deep ball, Marshall loves to go up and get it. The Bears added Martellus Bennett who gives Cutler a great secondary Redzone option.
