Bears QB Jay Cutler met with reporters on Wednesday and said that he expects to be pressured by the Redskins this week. Cutler also said that he expects the upcoming Chicago winter to be cold.
“They’re going to come after us,” Cutler said. “I think in the past couple of games if they go and watch that they’re going to see we’re having difficulties, so we should expect blitzes and they’ve got a secondary to cover some people up.”
Yeah, you can imagine that the film study of the Redskins was a rather festive affair this week. Brian Orakpo probably cannot sleep at night, waiting for this game. Like a little kid anticipating Christmas.
Cutler is a very risky fantasy play going forward, not only this week, but for the rest of the season. He had a great match-up at home against the Seahawks last week, and did not throw a single touchdown (Much to my chagrin, as I predicted he would have three touchdown passes. And it nearly cost my fantasy team).
Keep Cutler on your bench until he can provide some consistency.
