Jay Cutler's Nightmare Start Shouldn't Scare Fantasy Owners in 2013
Jay Cutler had a nightmare first half against the Detroit Lions, but his turnaround second half shows it shouldn't lead to fantasy owners being afraid to put the quarterback in the lineup.
Anyone who has Cutler on their roster knew the risk entering the season. The 30-year-old has always had a reputation of making risky throws. He has thrown at least 14 interceptions five times in his seven-year career.
On Sunday, Cutler went 27-of-47 through the air with 317 yards, two scores and three interceptions.
Cutler had been fairly efficient this season. He had completed 67.3 percent of his passes with six touchdowns to only three interceptions. That's a good ratio to have, and he hasn't forced the ball into tight spaces.
Oh yeah, he also gets to throw to Brandon Marshall. The duo has become one of the most dominant quarterback-receiver combination in the league. Chicago also has Alshon Jeffery, who gives Cutler another big target in the end zone.
Many will overreact to the horrible start, but Cutler has led his team to a pair of fourth-quarter comebacks this season—and nearly did so Sunday. His numbers may not be what they once were, but he has learned to find a way to get the win. Look for him to take care of the ball a little better in the coming weeks.
