The Dolphins have coaxed QB Jay Cutler out of retirement with a 1-year, $10 million deal, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The move is a sure sign that the team has elected to have QB Ryan Tannehill undergo season-ending surgery on his ACL. Cutler's 2016 season ended with a torn labrum, and he finished with a 59.1% completion rate, 4 TDs and 5 INTs in 5 appearances. The year prior, though, he connected on 64.4% of his attempts with 21 TDs and 11 INTs. That season came under OC Adam Gase, who is now HC of the Dolphins. That experience in the offense will help Cutler get ready with Week 1 just 5 weeks away. Cutler will be piloting a run-heavy offense and is no more than a lower-end QB2 in fantasy. But he'll keep this offense on schedule. We're not moving any Miami skill-position players down the rankings.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler has cleared the concussion protocol and will start Sunday's game against the Broncos, HC Adam Gase announced. Cutler was actually playing reasonably well before the injury, tossing multiple TDs in 4 straight games. Denver, meanwhile, has allowed a league-high 24 passing scores and will be without CB Aqib Talib. It's enough to make Cutler an option in 2-QB leagues.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. QB Matt Moore will draw the start after a nice showing in relief of Cutler last week. New England's defense has been much better over the past month and a half, but Moore should have enough volume on his side to make him a decent QB2 play.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler stayed in the locker room at the start of the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Bucs to get checked for a concussion. He completed just 6 of 12 passes with 3 INTs in the 1st half. QB Matt Moore is in the game for Miami. We'll update Cutler's status when we learn more.

Update: Cutler has been diagnosed with a concussion and is out for the game.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (ribs) is active for tonight’s game against the Raiders. He’s in the QB2 mix vs. the league’s 21st-ranked QB defense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Dolphins QB Jay Cutler is expected to play tonight against the Raiders. Cutler is questionable with a rib injury that cost him Week 8. HC Adam Gase has said that Cutler will get his starting job back when he's ready. The Raiders present an upside matchup, and getting WR DeVante Parker back will help. Cutler's play to date, however, also means lots of downside risk.
