In today’s Three and Out: The 49ers add another pass-catcher; Mike Glennon is the future in Tampa and Eric Ebron earns a lofty comparison.

Bears give Cutler seven-year extension

Faced with the choice of either potentially losing Jay Cutler or placing the franchise tag on him, the Bears decided to saddle up for the long-term haul. The two sides have agreed to a seven-year deal that will keep Cutler in Chicago through 2020. Cutler’s best season with the Bears came in his first year in Chicago (2009) when he threw for 3,666 yards and 27 touchdowns. Not coincidentally, that was the only year in which Cutler played a full 16 games. Injuries have hampered his production in recent seasons, and what’s somewhat surprising about this extension is Chicago has a more than capable backup QB. Josh McCown had five starts in the 2013 season, and e threw two or […]

For those of you still playing in Week 17 …

Till the end: If you’re in one of those die-hard leagues where teams start players through Week 17, give Browns RB Edwin Baker a try. He was in the game on almost every offensive snap during Sunday’s loss to the Jets, and he finished with 17 carries for 64 yards and a TD. Cleveland finishes the season with a road trip to Pittsburgh, whose defense has been leaking yards and points in recent weeks. With so many starters disappointing in Week 16, maybe Baker can give you an unexpected boost to close out the year.   Loyalty program: Bears head coach Marc Trestman confirmed Jay Cutler will remain the starter in Week 17. Count me in the crowd that says […]

Rodgers in a race against time

Progress? On Thursday, Aaron Rodgers — still recovring from a busted collarbone — said he would “need to take the majority of the reps” in Friday’s practice if we expect to see him on the field against the Cowboys. He reportedly looked and felt better today than he did earlier in the week. Rodgers owners simply need to pay close attention to this situation throughout the weekend, but even if he does return, he isn’t on auto-start status. It’s going to take him at least a week to get back up to speed. Use your backup plan, unless it’s a God-awful one. Back to our guy: Jay Cutler has been named Chicago’s Week 15 starter. Josh McCown averaged over 350 […]

Browns down to last resort at QB?

Last resort: The Browns lost in embarrassing fashion at home to the Jaguars in Week 13. And while Brandon Weeden made some costly errors, he wasn’t really the main reason they lost this time. Josh Gordon gave Weeden a big assist in his big day, but now Weeden is under concussion protocol, which means it’s very possible the team will start newly acquired QB Alex Tanney, who is better known for his entertaining trick shot mastery than any NFL success. Tanney is the only healthy QB on Cleveland’s roster right now, so if you happen to have any experience playing QB and aren’t predisposed this Sunday. you might want to send your résumé down to the folks in Berea, OH. Anyhow, […]

Texans stick with Keenum, Peterson ailing

  Case not closed: So, the Texans didn’t need much time to declare Case Keenum will start in Week 12 against the Jaguars. “I’ve got total confidence in him,” said coach Gary Kubiak. Except most of his fantasy owners don’t anymore after the inexplicably poor performance against a Raiders secondary that doesn’t exactly terrify opposing quarterbacks. If you own Keenum, I’m sorry. I really don’t know what to tell you, other than the Jags defense presents a good opportunity for him to get back on track. Nonetheless, keep your other options as open as possible. I wouldn’t start Keenum this week unless I had absolutely zero alternatives. Have a seat, Jay: The Bears have already ruled out Jay Cutler (ankle, […]

Three and out: Cutler to return?

Jay Cutler is hoping to make his way back for Chicago’s season finale, but fantasy owners shouldn’t rush to put him back in their lineups just yet.

Three and out: No Big Ben? Expect more Mendenhall

It looks like Ben Roethlisberger could sit out the remainder of the regular season. That could put a lot more of the offensive burden on the shoulders of Rashard Mendenhall
