Although it remains to be seen just how serious the injury is, fantasy owners counting on Cutler to deliver each week won't want to waste any time finding a potential replacement.
Oakland's Terrelle Pryor is available in more than 70 percent of all ESPN fantasy leagues and has three 18-plus-point performances this season. Meanwhile, Kansas City's Alex Smith is another option. Although he's owned in more than half of all ESPN leagues, he's likely to be available in most 10 or 12 team leagues around the country.
If neither Pryor nor Smith interest you, or they're not available in your league, Miami's Ryan Tannehill is worth considering. The second-year Dolphins quarterback is available in 85 percent of all ESPN leagues in Week 7 and offers solid value. He's thrown for 300-plus yards twice in 2013 and has tossed at least one touchdown in every game through six weeks.
