After Josh McCown eviscerated the Dallas Cowboys’ secondary in Week 14, there was a legitimate debate about whom the Chicago Bears would put under center in Cleveland in Week 15 against the Browns.

Jay Cutler was returning from injury, but McCown was the hot hand. The Bears went with Cutler, and he rewarded them with 265 passing yards and three touchdowns. However, it was the two interceptions, one that went back for a Browns touchdown, that almost crippled the hopes of Chicago and fantasy owners.  

As for McCown, if he is a member of your fantasy team the future looks dicey barring a Cutler injury. If Chicago wasn’t going to remove Cutler from the game after throwing two critical interceptions in the first half, it probably won’t happen going forward.
