2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jun-26-2014 by Rob Warner

BELIEVE: Jay Cutler signed a seven-year, $127 million contract in January that should keep him in the Windy City for at least three more years (the Bears can cut him in 2017 without paying him the remainder of his contract). The 30-year-old Vanderbilt alum missed five games with an ankle injury, but finished 2013 with five-year highs in passer rating (89), yards per game (238) and completion percentage (63-percent). In head coach Marc Trestman's pass-happy offense, Cutler is a very good QB1 (especially with an elite set of weapons at his disposal). Staying healthy behind a mediocre offensive line will be the major question mark as he has missed 12 games over the last three seasons. Chicago retained all 11 starters from an offense that ranked fifth in passing, eighth in total yards and second in points per game (28) last season. Their offensive line leaves a bit to be desired as Pro Football Focus ranked the unit 19th overall (11th in run blocking and 29th in pass blocking).

Editor's note: Even if you do not like Cutler, there is a lot to like about this offense and his fantasy potential within it. The days of the Bears having a lights-out defense and an underwhelming offense are over. This team is looking to outscore their opponents and burn out the lights in the scoreboard.

FFToolbox is predicting Cutler to be a surprise Top 5 QB for 2014!

15.12 KFFSC - I'm pro-Cutler. I'll just get that out of the way. The pass friendly offense, a new TE in Martellus Bennett, Brandon Marshall, Forte, improved offensive line, etc. Cutler has all the tools he needs to be successful. He's a good choice for a backup to RG3 and I can start Cutler and feel confident if RG3 is injured.

14.07 DynastyLeague Football - Trust in Trestmann. An innovative play caller using a QB friendly system with Marshall, Jeffrey, and Forte make Cutler a solid QB2.

12.05 DraftSharks - This felt early for a backup in a draft that saw QBs slid so much, but there's no better value in the players who went behind Cutler. If he gets comfy with Marc Trestman's scheme this summer, Cutler could finish among the top 12 QBs. I'd take him as a low-end starter.

Jay Cutler is projected right now as the #5 QB. What is that based on? Last year, he averaged only 18 points per full start (180 points over 10 games). Dalton (your #15) averaged 20, Rivers (your #17) averaged 19, and Foles (your #8) averaged 23 and all of them avoided major injury last year.

As a Bears fan, I'd be pleasantly surprised if he ended the season in the top 10, but let's stress that would be a surprise.
