So there's a good chance Jay Culter isn't available in your league, but if you're in a 10-teamer, he could be waiting for you to add him.
Everyone knows how impressive of a thrower he is, but are hesitant to make him their fantasy starter because of his propensity to try to hit his pass-catchers when they're covered tightly.
He and Brandon Marshall lived up to the offseason expectations in Week 1, and Cutler found rookie wideout Alshon Jeffery three times for 80 yards including a 42-yard touchdown. Yes, it was against the Colts defense, but Cutler looks to be primed for a huge year in Chicago.
As for Freeman, his numbers weren't nearly as gaudy, but he did a fantastic job managing the game against the Carolina Panthers. He threw for 138 yards and a score, and more importantly, didn't toss an interception.
It seems as though his Buccaneers team will prominently feature the running game (36 total rushes against the Panthers), but Freeman seemed calm in his traditional game-manager role. If Greg Schiano's system boosts the quarterback's confidence, he most certainly will have a steady year and will be a sound fantasy backup.
