Justin Fields

22-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Chicago Bears
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The Bears traded up to select Fields 11th overall in this year's draft, hoping they've found their franchise quarterback after finally giving up on Mitchell Trubisky. Fields is a strong-armed, accurate passer with good size (6-3, 227) and excellent speed. He ran a 4.46 40 at his pro day, even more impressive considering his weight. Fields' mobility might be his best asset. He can throw on the run and uses his legs to make something out of nothing when plays break down. At Ohio State, he got into trouble when he held the ball too long and sometimes failed to work through progressions, though the notion that he's a one-read QB seems overblown. He'll have time to work on those issues, as he's expected to back up free-agent Andy Dalton to start the season. If forced into action, or if coach Matt Nagy decides the future is now, Fields can probably get by on his outstanding athletic ability while he develops as a passer. Plus, he has playmaker Allen Robinson to lean on, and the Bears should get bigger contributions from deep threat Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet, the team's second-round pick a year ago. Chicago also addressed the O-Line in the draft with second-round pick Teven Jenkins (6-6, 317), who is expected to start at left tackle. The Bears say they'll be patient with Fields, but it will surprise no one if he moves into the starting job this season. If so, he certainly has fantasy upside as a dual-threat QB. Read Past Outlooks

Throws touchdown pass in defeat
QBChicago Bears
October 17, 2021
Fields completed 16 of 27 passes for 174 yards with one touchdown and an interception while adding 43 yards on five rushes in the Bears' 24-14 loss to the Packers on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Fields led the Bears on an opening drive that resulted in a Khalil Herbert rushing score. Afterwards, he was under heavy pressure most of the afternoon, and he wasn't able to engineer another scoring drive until Chicago was trying to come back in the fourth quarter. Unless he begins to show improvement, he'll only be a lineup consideration in leagues that start two quarterbacks.
