Two key players have been questionable heading into week 12 of the NFL regular season. Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler has been dealing with lasting effects of a concussion suffered against the Houston Texans. Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones has been nursing an ankle injury and while he did play a limited number of snaps last week, he was officially listed as questionable.
After missing last week’s game, Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler will start this afternoon against the Minnesota Vikings. Cutler passed his medical tests on Saturday afternoon.
Fantasy Implication- Good ahead and start Cutler on your fantasy team this week. The Vikings offense will be limited this afternoon with the loss of WR Percy Harvin.
Falcons WR Julio Jones was limited in practice this week. He has been dealing with an ankle injury. Reports this morning suggest that he will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday afternoon.
Fantasy Implication- Jones played last week despite missing the entire week of practice. However, he was limited in the number of snaps he received and only had three receptions for 33 yards. Jones is a risky fantasy option this week. It’s a tasty matchup facing the porous Buccaneers secondary but he could be limited again. If the Falcons jump out to a quick lead, he could be rested. If you have other options, plug them in this week. If you must start Jones, temper expectations.
