Week 6: Eli or Cutler?

I'm in a 10 team PPR league that gives 6 pts per passing TD. Should I roll with Eli at home against Detroit, or Cutler at home against the Seahawks? Normally I'd think Cutler is the guy, given Martz' offense and the fact that Seattle has been terrible against the pass and I feel like they're horrific on the road. But I'm a little worried about the concussion situation with Cutler. I think Detroit's defense is better than most people might think, so I'm a little worried that Eli might stink up the joint.

Right now, I'm leaning towards Eli, since Cutler seems too risky. Any thoughts?

I like Eli as well... his history over the last 20+ games is better, his offensive line is better, his WRs are better and he is not coming off a concussion. He also seems less likely to lose 4-6 points with interceptions.
