Jay Cutler throws first score as a Dolphin

Jay Cutler made his first regular-season start as a Miami Dolphin completing 24 of 33 pass attempts for 230 yards. He connected with Kenny Stills from 29 yards out for his first and only score of the day.

Fantasy Impact

Cutler did not turn the ball over and connected with five different receivers. While it was expected Cutler would look for DeVante Parker often, it was Jarvis Landry who led the team in targets (15). Parker, however, was the recipient of Cutler’s longest pass of the day of 31 yards.

Jay Cutler says Dolphins were ready Week 1

The Dolphins were slated to play Tampa Bay Week 1, but Hurricane Irma prevented that from happening. Nonetheless, Jay Cutler says they were ready to go, but also admitted that having to evacuate and then travel to Los Angeles has now made the team a bit rusty. "We’re going to prepare as much as we can; but like any game, like any NFL season, there’s going to be some ups and downs out there … It’s a resilient group, so we’ll just battle through them.”

Fantasy Impact

Cutler will face a Chargers defense that held Trevor Siemian to 219 yards passing. Owning Cutler requires a high tolerance for turnovers coupled with high-yardage plays downfield.

Jay Cutler ‘ready to go’ says Gase

Dolphins head coach Adam Gase has seen enough of QB Jay Cutler to feel confident about his status going into Sunday's matchup against Tampa Bay. “I feel good about it. I feel like he did the one thing we talked about he needed to do and that is the feel in the pocket and guys being around. It seems like his arm is in good enough shape to where he’ll be ready to throw more and more as we’ve gone along," said Gase.

Fantasy Impact

Cutler is a deep-league option. We know who he is, he'll unleash the deep ball without caution, which raised DeVante Parker's ADP in league drafts this season. He'll also throw into triple coverage. Only owners with a strong stomach need apply.

Jay Cutler plays whole quarter against Jacksonville

Jay Cutler completed 5-of-8 for 105 yards and a touchdown in his second start with the Miami Dolphins. Cutler played the whole first quarter against the Jaguars and connected with Julius Thomas for his only score at the beginning of the second quarter.

Fantasy Impact

Cutler gave up the ball (ball strip) the first series, but otherwise looked fine showing a willingness to spread the ball around targeting six different receivers (including Jay Ajayi), connecting with four.

Jay Cutler makes Dolphins debut

After a short stint as a retired NFL player, Cutler returned to the NFL as the Dolphins took on the Ravens, throwing 3-of-6 for 24 yards. Cutler played the Dolphins' first two series before Matt Moore took over.

Fantasy Impact

Cutler looked like the same player who isn't afraid to throw downfield, something critics longed to see from Ryan Tannehill. DeVante Parker is the player most likely to benefit the most from Cutler's gunslinging tendencies. Cutler also has a tendency to throw into tight coverage. We saw that too on Thursday. Hang tight as he continues to get to know his teammates.
