Cutler's tenure with the Bears begins at Lambeau Field where the quarterback threw for 264 yards and a touchdown with the Broncos in 2007. After last year's breakout campaign -- 4,526 yards and 27 touchdowns -- the expectations in Chicago are stratospheric. Can he live up to them?
Olsen has been tabbed to join the elite class of pass-catching tight ends after last year's breakout season, which saw career highs in catches (54), yards (574) and touchdowns (5). Fantasy pundits expect those numbers only to rise with Cutler taking the snaps.
Rodgers, tabbed for a breakout fantasy campaign in '08, would be an absolute must-start player under any circumstances. But his numbers in last year's two starts against the Bears -- 47-of-69 for 487 yards with four touchdowns and two picks -- only confirm the gut instinct.
Jennings, who caught 11 balls for 102 yards and two touchdowns in a pair of games against the Bears in 2008, enjoyed a breakout season and hopes to carry that momentum into '09. He caught a career-high 80 passes for 1,292 yards while consolidating his place atop the depth chart.
The ageless Driver set a franchise record with his sixth 1,000-yard receiving season in 2008. He caught 10 passes for 123 yards in two games against Chicago last year -- good if not spectacular numbers. He should only benefit from Rodgers' projected coming of age.
