Bears quarterback Jay Cutler enters the season ranked as the 15th-best fantasy football quarterback.

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has a new No. 1 receiver to throw to in Brandon Marshall, but the Bears' acquisition of Marshall doesn't seem to have had very much impact on Cutler's fantasy football prospects. SB Nation's fantasy sports site Fake Teams ranked Cutler No. 15 in their list of 2012 fantasy football quarterback rankings.

The ranking is actually two spots lower than Fake Teams ranked Cutler heading into the 2011 season. Cutler is entering his seventh season in the NFL and his fourth with the Bears. He played in just 10 games last season, missing the final six due to a thumb injury.

He is healthy now and enters the season with a few new weapons at his disposal, including Marshall. Possibly the biggest change is at offensive coordinator. After two seasons under Mike Martz, the Bears offense will be directed by Mike Tice in 2012.

If Tice brings more passing with him, expect Cutler to rise up the rankings. A big part of why he is ranked No. 15 is because the Bears' offense has been centered around the running game, limiting Cutler's opportunities.
