I think Suh and Co. are going to pound Cutler all game -- so I'd go w/ Hassleback against a banged-up Steelers D!

I am going to go with Hassleback. He has been producing points for his team this season and he's been averaging 20+ points a game. He's more consistent

any PPR? our league is projecting Cutler to have a better game. But we get 1 PPR.

think CHI @ DET may be a shoot out?

I like Hasselbeck as well for this matchup, Steelers defense is very banged up and poor against the pass. Matt has been very consistent and I like him to continue his 20 PPG production.

Cutler's matchup is tempting becasue he lit up Detroit last year but Detroit is going to apply more pressure from their front four that I don't think the Bears offensive line will be able to handle for Jay to have time.

This is tough...both teams are going against a strong DEF with PIT having a stronger secondary and being ranked 1st in passing defense. I would go with Hasselbeck though...CJ should hopefully be getting back up to speed and with Jared Cook's performance last week, Hasselbeck will have plenty of opportunities to mix it up a little.

Cutler is too inconsistent for me. And, like it or not Steeler fans, TEN is simply a better team that PIT. I expect pretty decent numbers from Haas yet again (8th best QB in my league). I'd play him confidently against a banged up D that already sucks at corner.
