Jay Cutler completed 19-of-33 passes for 151 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Dolphins' 20-17, Week 6 win over the Falcons.
Cutler was by no means good, but he was just good enough in the second half to keep his job another week. Cutler was lucky to escape with only one interception. Routinely pushed back by collapsing pockets, Cutler made a habit of trying to throw lasers off his back foot. It worked, sometimes. Jarvis Landry kept the passing game moving with running back-like YAC work. In his defense, Cutler was hurt by an unusual number of drops. He'll remain a bottom-barrel QB2 for Week 7 against the Jets. Oct 15 - 4:17 PM

Date:

Jay Cutler went 12-of-26 passing for 92 yards, one touchdown, one interception, and eight rushing yards in the Dolphins' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Anyone who streamed Cutler should feel lucky he came away with a red-zone score to Jarvis Landry, because he couldn't have played much worse in this game. Cutler's throws were off target all day long, and the Dolphins' offense wasn't the reason for the win, struggling mightily to move the ball. Even in an up-tempo Week 6 date with the Falcons, Cutler will be very tough to trust as more than a low-end two-quarterback-league option. He's now finished below 260 passing yards in 12 straight games.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase dismissed the idea of a quarterback change following the team's shutout loss to the Saints Week 4 in London.

Jay Cutler did not play well against the Saints and ended the Dolphins' promising first drive with an interception, but penalties, sacks, and play calling also deserve blame for Miami's terrible showing in London. That said, something has to change soon for an offense which aside from a meaningless touchdown with time expiring in Week 3 has done nothing two games in a row.
Oct 1 - 1:11 PM

Jay Cutler completed 20-of-28 attempts for 164 yards and one interception in the Dolphins' Week 4 loss to the Saints.

If not for a late timeout which allowed Miami to score a meaningless touchdown last week, they would have been shut out in back-to-back games by the Jets and Saints. Cutler certainly did not look like he was headed for a shutout early in this game, easily marching the offense down the field on their first possession. He threw a bad pick in the end zone to finish that drive, however, and Miami could not get anything going the rest of the day. Sacks, penalties, and poor play calling deserve some of the blame for the bad performance, but Cutler looks a step slow and uncertain in the offense. Even in a great matchup against the Titans next week -- Miami's first real home game of the season -- Cutler will not be a fantasy option outside of two-quarterback formats.

Coach Adam Gase said he is fed up with the Dolphins' "garbage" offense.

"A lot of bad football. More mental errors than we've had the last two years," Gase said. "I'll find the guys that want to do it right, and those are the guys that will play." Similarly fed up with his team after a bad start last season, Gase cut three offensive linemen on the same day, so it is possible a big shakeup is on the way. That said, none of it will matter if Jay Cutler does not play better than he did on Sunday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Cutler has a great get-right spot at home vs. the Saints. They’re allowing QBs the 2nd-highest completion rate (73.1%), 3rd-most yards per game (311), and the most YPA (9.4). Not surprisingly, FO ranks them dead last in pass DVOA. Cam Newton couldn’t do much against them, but he was without his top two receivers and doesn’t appear fully healthy. If CB Marshon Lattimore is inactive again, it’ll be an even better spot for Cutler and DeVante Parker.
Sep 26 - 9:46 AM

Jay Cutler completed 26-of-44 passes for 220 yards, one touchdown and one interception in a 20-6 loss to the Jets in Week 3.

This stat line would've looked even worse if not for a TD on the last play of the game -- coach Adam Gase called timeout with six seconds left to allow Cutler to hit DeVante Parker from three yards out. The Dolphins offense was a disaster and they didn't get into Jets territory until the end of the third quarter. Plus, at one point in the second half, the Dolphins had more punts (seven) than Cutler had completions (six). The Dolphins were out of rhythm for most of this game, and may be tough to stream Cutler against the Saints in Week 4.
Sep 24 - 4:38 PM

Jay Cutler completed 24-of-33 passes for 230 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Chargers.

Cutler was extremely efficient and didn't make any mistakes in his Miami debut. He settled for easy check-downs to Jarvis Landry and Julius Thomas in the first half before taking a couple shots in the second half with some jump balls to DeVante Parker and a 29-yard touchdown strike to Kenny Stills. Cutler simply looks comfortable again back in coach Adam Gase's offense. In a run-first attack, Cutler will remain a mid-range or back end QB2 next week at the Jets.

The NFL has postponed the Bucs-Dolphins game until Week 11 due to Hurricane Irma.

The teams share(d) a Week 11 bye week and will play the game then. The players now have to play 16-straight games with no off week, which is a big concern for player safety, but Roger Goodell apparently wasn't comfortable moving the game to a neutral site like Pittsburgh or Philadelphia. Fantasy owners need to get Bucs and Dolphins out of lineups. Tampa will open at home against Chicago next week, with the Dolphins traveling to face the Chargers.
Sep 6 - 9:14 AM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are neutral sites under consideration if the Bucs-Dolphins game is to be played this weekend.

Both the Steelers and Eagles are on the road to open their seasons. It's still to be determined if the Bucs-Dolphins game will even be played this week; the NFL is expected to make a ruling on Wednesday if the two teams will travel to a neutral site or move the game back to Week 11 when both Tampa Bay and Miami are scheduled to have its bye weeks. That would be a brutal season if both clubs are to play 16-straight weeks without an open date. Neither team wants it.
Sep 5 - 9:05 PM

With Category 5 Hurricane Irma currently forecasted to make landfall in South Florida, the Bucs and Dolphins will not play as scheduled this Sunday in Miami.

It's undecided if the game will be moved to a neutral site or delayed until Week 11, when both teams are on bye. Neither club has been receptive to the idea of delaying the game and playing 16 straight weeks. More likely is a neutral site opener this weekend.
Sep 5 - 4:30 PM

Profootballtalk reports the NFL is expected to reach a decision about Sunday's Bucs/Dolphins game in Miami by Tuesday evening.

Hurricane Irma is already one of the most powerful Category 5 storms in history, and is currently forecasted to make a direct weekend hit on South Florida. One of the options is moving the game to Week 11, as the Bucs and Dolphins are both on bye that weekend. Neither team has appeared keen on that idea, which would require playing 16 straight games. More likely is this weekend's game being moved to another location, and perhaps another day.

Jay Cutler completed 5-of-8 throws for 105 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' third preseason game.

He played 18 snaps. Cutler's box score doesn't show a 65-yard pass interference gain Cutler drew by targeting Kenny Stills on an end-zone pass. After that, Cutler hit Julius Thomas for a one-yard score. Cutler's other highlight-reel throw was a 72-yard contested ball to DeVante Parker, which Parker nearly took to the house. Cutler's aggressiveness was refreshing to see in Miami's offense after Ryan Tannehill threw into tight coverage at the NFL's third-lowest clip among 40 qualified quarterbacks last season, according to Next Gen Stats. Cutler threw into tight coverage at the NFL's fifth-highest clip.
Aug 24 - 8:14 PM

Jay Cutler completed 3-of-6 passes for 24 yards in Thursday's preseason game.

The numbers don't tell the whole story, as Cutler had a 31-yard completion to DeVante Parker called back by penalty. The Dolphins also got trapped into a 3rd-and-27 thanks to a pair of holding calls. Cutler came out assertive, aggressively throwing the ball down the field and locking onto Parker like he was an Alshon Jeffery clone. It was two drives in a mid-August exhibition game, but it was promising. The Dolphins will remain run heavy, but their passing attack is going to look much different under aggressive Cutler than timid Ryan Tannehill.
Aug 17 - 7:37 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Jay Cutler will make his debut Thursday night against the Ravens.

The coach suggested that would be the case earlier this week, and it became obvious after Cutler took all of the first-team snaps during Tuesday's walkthrough. It is not clear how long he will play, but Cutler needs as many live reps as he can get before Week 1. Matt Moore will return to his backup role.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he is "trending" toward playing Jay Cutler in the second preseason game.

Gase said he has not made his decision yet, but The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the decision is made and Cutler will start. The coach did say the quarterback "pretty much" has the offense down, so getting him game reps seems like the next step. If Cutler does not play, Matt Moore will get the nod.
