Jay Cutler completed 24-of-36 passes for 262 yards and two touchdowns against the Giants in Week 6. He has yet to give the ball away in 2013 and he finished with a passer rating of 106.5.
Cutler also added 20 yards rushing on Thursday night. He moved the ball well throughout the game, but drives stalled in the second half, forcing Robbie Gould to come on.
Fantasy impact: After Brandon Marshall expressed concern about his targets last week, Cutler made sure he kept his No. 1 receiver happy. Marshall caught both touchdowns and hauled in nine passes on the night.
While the Cutler-Marshall duo was running at full steam, Alshon Jeffery took a backseat in the passing game. This shows Cutler can provide decent value with either wideout. His next matchup is with a Redskins defense the ranks No. 28 against the pass. Cutler is a QB2 once again.
