There's not much worth cheering about at this point, but stats are good, right?

Earlier this week, Sam Householder took a look at some potential Chicago Bears records that could be broken this week, including Jay Cutler claiming yet another.

Cutler, despite being benched last week, needs just 199 yards and two touchdown passes to break Erik Kramer's single-season franchise record for passing yards and touchdowns. Cutler sits at 3,640 yards and 28 touchdowns, trailing Kramer's 1995 marks of 3.838 and 29 TDs. Cutler would then hold three of the top five single-season franchise passing seasons in yards. He also could break Josh McCown's 2013 single-season mark for completion percentage. Cutler sits at 66.1 percent, just a few tenths off McCown's 66.5 mark from a year ago. With 36 passing attempts he could break his own record, set in 2009, for pass attempts in a season (555). He's already set a franchise mark for completions in a season this year with 347 (and counting).

Of course, there are also the turnovers.

And SB Nation is giving us their fantasy advise for Week 17. Click over HERE to get the full rundown, including what to do if you have some Vikings options. Here is there Bears advise:

Start 'em: Even after being benched for a week, Jay Cutler looks like a top-10 option at quarterback. ... Matt Forte, Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett are who they always are -- starters. There isn't much analysis there.

Sit 'em: The Bears are probably happy with what they've seen from Marquess Wilson since Brandon Marshall got hurt, though he's not a strong fantasy option. ... Jay Feely has replaced Robbie Gould without missing much of a beat. Of course, that's because Gould wasn't doing much either. ... The Bears' defense has had five games of zero or fewer fantasy points in its last eight.
