Player Outlook
Fields will be drafted as a high-end No. 2 QB and likely a target of those managers who choose to wait for the late-round guys with high upside. Fields' rushing ability and the flashes he showed down the stretch run of his rookie season are what makes him so alluring, but there are red flags that need to be considered, starting with learning his second NFL system in two years. The Bears also did little to upgrade an already shaky offensive line, and they'll sport a receiving corps that lost veteran Allen Robinson and added fourth-year man Byron Pringle (who has 67 career receptions) and 25-year-old rookie Velus Jones, who was the 14th player drafted at his position. Fields is still likely at least one year away from being an every-week Fantasy starter, but the upside is worth pursuing as long as you pair him with another quarterback from the same late-round range. Fields will obviously be a sought-after No. 2 QB in Dynasty leagues beginning in Round 5.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Will see action Thursday

    Fields is likely to go for six-to-10 plays in Thursday's game against the Seahawks Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports. Fishbain also stated that some of the Bears' starters will see 20 plays, so that can't be ruled out for Fields. Coach Matt Eberflus said the low number of plays is due the the short week the team is on.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Plays three series

    Fields completed four of seven passes for 48 yards in Saturday's preseason opener against Kansas City. He added one rush for 10 yards. Fields led the Bears' first three drives on the day, all three of which ended in punts. Two of his four completions went for two or fewer yards, and he was also sacked twice. While it wasn't the most impressive preseason debut for Fields, he'll nevertheless enter the season without any threats to his starting job.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Likely to play Saturday

    Coach Matt Eberflus indicated that we can expect to see the Bears' healthy starters play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Chiefs, Alyssa Barbieri of USA Today reports. At this stage, Fields doesn't have any reported injury concerns. According to Eberflus, the Chicago starters will play 15 to 20 snaps, though some will play 10 to 15 snaps. In his first training camp as the starting quarterback, Fields will also be running the team's new offensive system.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Taking part in preseason opener

    Fields will play in the Bears' preseason opener Aug. 13 against the Chiefs, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Not only is Fields entering his first full preseason as the Bears' starting quarterback, but he's also learning new head coach Matt Eberflus' offensive system. In addition, Chicago has quite a few new receivers fighting for roles, so the preseason may be more important for the Bears than for many other teams. Overall, any reps that Fields gets in the preseason can only help his development. Although he's typically being selected outside the top 12 quarterbacks in most redraft formats, Fields' rushing ability gives him the upside to finish well above his average draft position.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Speed added to receiver room

    Fields now has two receivers that run a sub-4.4 40-yard dash after the Bears added Velus Jones in the third round of the NFL Draft, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports. Jones, who ran a 4.31 40-yard dash, joins Darnell Mooney as the second receiver on the Bears with elite speed. During the offseason, the Bears made it a point to add weapons to complement Fields' arm strength when signing Byron Pringle and Equanimeous St. Brown, but Jones adds another level of speed to the mix. If the team can put together an offense that combines Fields' running ability with a downfield-passing element, he could emerge as a strong fantasy starter with elite upside this season.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Preparing to run new system

    Fields is learning a new offense that's expected to cater to his strengths, the Bears' official site reports. After entering his rookie season as a backup, Fields now enters camp working with the starters, though he'll again be learning a new offensive system. With the coaching staff intent on putting Fields' in the best position to succeed, it's likely that his running ability along with his ability to throw deep will be prioritized. Fields' average of 56 rushing yards over the last five games of his rookie season shows he can be a useful fantasy contributor even if the Chicago passing game is a work in a progress under new offensive coordinator Luke Getsy.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Won't play in season finale

    Fields remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list in advance of Sunday's game against the Vikings, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports. As a result, Andy Dalton is in line to start Sunday's season finale against Minnesota, with Nick Foles slated to serve as the Bears' backup QB in the absence of Fields, who landed on the list Thursday. Fields will conclude his rookie campaign with 1,870 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions on 59 percent passing and 72 carries for 420 yards and two more TDs in 12 appearances, 10 of them starts. He showed significant upside as a dual-threat quarterback, and he'll likely be selected as a top-15 option at his position in 2022 drafts. Fields will enter the second year of his rookie deal, as the anticipated undisputed starting quarterback and the face of the franchise.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: On COVID list, likely out Week 18

    The Bears placed Fields on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday. According to Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune, Fields is vaccinated, which confirms he tested positive for the virus. While he theoretically has a chance to test out of the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocol ahead of Sunday's game in Minnesota, the timing of his placement on the list means that he'll more than likely be out for the regular-season finale. Andy Dalton will presumably prepare to make his second straight start, while Fields likely ends his rookie season with a 58.9 percent completion rate for 1,870 yards and a 7:10 TD:INT over 12 appearances. He also added 420 yards and two scores on the ground.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Cleared for Week 18 start

    Head coach Matt Nagy said Fields (ankle) will return to full practice participation Wednesday and then start Sunday's game in Minnesota, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. A couple weeks back, Nagy made it clear he'd be cautious with Fields, saying the rookie would need to be "extremely healthy" to return to game action. That's apparently now the case, after Nick Foles and Andy Dalton led the Bears to wins the past two weeks. Fields was showing improvement before suffering the ankle injury, including in his last appearance, which came Week 15 against the same Vikings team he'll face again in the season finale. The rookie threw for 285 yards and a touchdown in the first matchup, though his lost fumble and struggles on third and fourth downs contributed to an all-around sloppy effort that left the Bears with a 17-9 loss despite out-gaining the Vikings by nearly 200 yards. Both Fields and Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins will return Sunday for what's almost certainly the final duel between Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and Bears head coach Matt Nagy.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Could return in Week 18

    Fields (ankle) should start Sunday against the Vikings if he's healthy, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Coach Matt Nagy emphasized Monday that Fields' Week 18 status will be determined based on how he feels in the coming days, but the rookie is in line to start the regular-season finale if he's cleared to play. Fields was limited in each practice session ahead of the team's Week 17 win over the Giants before being deemed inactive, so he could have to log at least one full practice ahead of Sunday's game against Minnesota if he hopes to play. Andy Dalton drew the start in Week 17 and completed 18 of 35 passes for 173 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Sitting out Sunday

    Fields (ankle) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Giants. The writing was on the wall for Fields when coach Matt Nagy named Andy Dalton (hand) the Bears' Week 17 starter at quarterback and Nick Foles the No. 2 on Friday. Fields has yet to put in anything more than a limited practice since injuring his ankle in a Week 15 loss to the Vikings, meaning he may need to get back to all activity before Nagy feels comfortable enough for the rookie signal-caller to return to action. While Fields will sit for the fourth time in six games, his next opportunity to play will come next Sunday at Minnesota.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Remains limited at practice

    Fields (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. The limited activity marks no change from Wednesday, making it tough to gauge whether Fields is on track to be available for Sunday's game against the Giants. According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, head coach Matt Nagy said Wednesday that Fields would need to be "extremely healthy" to play this weekend, perhaps suggesting that the rookie will have to put in a full practice by Friday in order to return to the lineup. Andy Dalton, meanwhile, practiced fully for the second day in a row Thursday after sitting out the Bears' Week 16 win over the Seahawks with a groin injury, which may be enough to put him in the driver's seat for the Week 17 start.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Still limited, unlike Dalton

    Fields (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday. Meanwhile, Andy Dalton (groin) returned to full participation Wednesday, though head coach Matt Nagy said it was still too early in the week to determine whether Fields or Dalton would be the team's starter for Sunday's game. Nagy mentioned, however, that Fields would need to be "extremely healthy" to play, per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. In other words, the Bears won't rush the rookie first-round pick back into action at the end of a non-playoff season, but they're still open to playing him if/when he's 100 percent or close to it. Fields' work on the practice field over the next two days will likely be a big part of that evaluation.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Sitting out in Week 16

    Fields (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game in Seattle, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Fields emerged from last Monday's loss to the Vikings with an ankle injury that only allowed him to practice one time this past week. On Friday, coach Matt Nagy named Nick Foles as the Bears' Week 16 starter at quarterback with Andy Dalton (left hand/groin) ruled out and Fields' status in question. With Fields unavailable Sunday, Ryan Willis will serve as Foles' backup.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Won't start, could dress Week 16

    Fields (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Seattle. Fields kicked off Week 16 prep with a limited listing on the Bears' injury report, only to not participate in any drills once the team took the practice field Thursday and Friday. Coach Matt Nagy announced that Nick Foles will start at quarterback for the Bears this weekend, and it's to be determined whether Fields will be able to serve as the backup, per Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic. If Fields eventually is inactive Sunday, practice squad member Ryan Willis would serve as the No. 2 to Foles.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Downgrades to no activity Thursday

    Fields (ankle) didn't practice Thursday. The Bears held a walkthrough Wednesday, after which Fields was listed as a limited participant. Now that the team returned to a normal session, though, he didn't take part in any drills. It's unclear if Fields' ankle issue is putting him in danger of being absent Sunday in Seattle, but Andy Dalton (left hand/groin) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday and practiced in full. An inactive Fields would yield quarterback duties to Dalton.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Picks up minor ankle injury

    Fields (ankle) will be listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Fields reportedly hurt his ankle during Monday's 17-9 loss to the Vikings, but it doesn't sound like anything serious given that he never left the game and might've been healthy enough for a limited practice Wednesday (if the Bears hadn't held an indoors walkthrough). In any case, the rookie figures to get another start this Sunday in Seattle, with Andy Dalton (reserve/COVID-19) and Nick Foles on hand in case Fields' ankle takes an unexpected turn for the worse.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Throws late touchdown

    Fields completed 26 of 39 passes for 285 yards and one touchdown while adding 35 yards on seven rushes in the Bears' 17-9 loss to the Vikings on Monday. Fields could've had a much better game, but the coaching staff chose to go with a run-heavy approach for the first three quarters despite facing a Vikings defense that was one to target. Once the Bears were down by 14 points in the fourth quarter, the team finally turned Fields loose, and he had two drives in which he moved the Bears down the field, but threw a number of incomplete passes in the end zone. However, with time expiring, he threw a touchdown to Jesper Horsted to salvage his fantasy day. Fields will finish the fantasy playoffs with a pair of favorable matchups against the Seahawks and Giants, and his rushing ability should give him a reasonable scoring floor with potential for upside.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Full participant at walkthrough

    Fields (hand) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's estimated practice report. Field bruised his left hand during Sunday's loss at Green Bay, a contest in which he completed 18 of 33 passes for 224 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while taking nine carries for 74 yards. But the injury didn't impact his ability to handle every rep at Thursday's walkthrough, which can't be said for Andy Dalton (left hand), who was a non-participant. If Dalton doesn't gain clearance to play Monday against the Vikings, Nick Foles again would serve as Fields' backup.

  • Bears' Justin Fields: Combines for 300+ yards plus 3 TOs

    Fields (ribs) completed 18 of 33 pass attempts for 224 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while rushing nine times for 74 yards in Sunday's 45-30 loss to Green Bay. He also lost a fumble. The entire Bears' unit put up an exciting fight against the Packers for the majority of the contest, but Fields didn't have a particularly strong game in terms of passing. The rookie quarterback was returning from a rib injury that cost him two weeks of action, but it wasn't like he was performing that well from the pocket prior to getting hurt (58 percent completion rate with a 6:10 TD:INT prior to Sunday's loss). The Vikings have been one of the worst passing defenses this season, so perhaps Fields can offer streaming value in next Monday's divisional matchup.
