Cutler or Dalton

Postby Cleokatrah » Wed Sep 21, 2011 6:06 pm

This appears to be a no brainer, right? Cutler trying to keep up with GB could be an owner's wet dream. Wait. Weren't we just in this situation last week against the Saints? He suffered 6 sacks, completed less than 50% of his passes, and only one TD.

GB has been handing out a healthy amount of sacks and Chicago's o-line is water. Even if he puts up similar numbers, is that going to be better than what Dalton can do against San Francisco, a defense that allowed Seattle two TDs and is averaging 2.5 passing TDs allowed per game?

Opinions?

I wouldn't fault you for going with Dalton. Easier matchup and not a swiss cheese offensive line like you have in Chicago right now.

I'd go with Cutler, GBs secondary has not looked very strong, and if Newton can pass for 400 yards so can Cutler. According to Yahoo "Green Bay has given up the 2nd most fantasy points to Quarterbacks this season." Not huge on Dalton, and I feel like Cutler is much safer and has much more upside.

Thanks for helping on mine.

I agree with KK_Cowboy, I wouldn't fault you for going with Dalton, but I also wouldn't feel very confident starting him either.

Cutler doesn't really have any weapons aside from Matt Forte. Either way it's risky, but you have to say Dalton has way more upside in this situation.

Yeah, I definitely don't feel confident starting either of them, but it is good to hear I'm not crazy for considering Dalton. My other options are Flacco or Bradford, and I think Dalton has enough upside to outweigh either of them.

Thanks for the input. I appreciate it.
