The Bears fired HC Matt Nagy. This move has been anticipated for weeks now. Nagy went 12-4 in his first season at the helm but totaled only 22 wins over the past 3 seasons. He also didn't seem to maximize QB Justin Fields' skill set this year. Chicago's next HC hire will be key for Fields' development.

Update: Chicago also fired GM Ryan Pace.

Bears edge Robert Quinn (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Vikings. Use him as planned in IDP leagues.

Bears QB Justin Fields was placed on the COVID list on Thursday. He'll very likely miss this weekend's finale vs. the Vikings. That figures to put Andy Dalton back under center for Chicago.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said QB Justin Fields (ankle) will put in a full practice on Wednesday and start Sunday's finale vs. the Vikings. Fields has missed the past 2 games, but he finished as a top-10 fantasy QB in each of his previous 4 full games. He's an intriguing Week 18 DFS play.

The Bears have activated DE Akiem Hicks from the COVID list. He spent 8 days on the list and will carry risk for IDP rosters in Week 17.

Bears QB Andy Dalton will start Sunday's game vs. the Giants, HC Matt Nagy announced on Friday. QB Nick Foles will be the backup, so QB Justin Fields evidently isn't ready to return from that ankle injury. Dalton is just a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups, although he's not a significant downgrade from Fields for Chicago's skill-position guys.

Bears QB Justin Fields (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he can make it back for this weekend's game vs. the Giants, but Fields will be tough to trust in fantasy lineups if he's not at 100%.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has been activated from the COVID list. He figures to siphon a few targets from WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet this weekend, but A-Rob isn't a fantasy option vs. the Giants.

Bears QB Justin Fields (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. Someone named Ryan Willis will back up QB Nick Foles.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Friday that QB Nick Foles will start Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. QB Andy Dalton (left hand, groin) is out for Week 16, while QB Justin Fields (ankle) was unable to practice on Thursday or Friday. Nagy said that Fields might be active on Sunday, but it'd be as Foles' backup. Foles made 7 starts for the Bears last season, averaging 238 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT on a 66% completion rate and 5.9 yards per attempt.

Bears QB Justin Fields (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Seahawks. He was limited on Wednesday but didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday. It’s safe to assume that Fields won’t be at 100% if he starts Sunday’s game, which makes him tough to like in fantasy lineups. QB Andy Dalton (left hand, groin) is out for Week 16, so QB Nick Foles will get the start if Fields is out.

After a limited practice on Wednesday, Bears QB Justin Fields (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. His availability for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks is now in question. QB Andy Dalton was activated from the COVID list on Thursday and would likely start if Fields is out. Check back tomorrow for another update on the rookie.

Bears LB Roquan Smith (hamstring) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. That's not surprising, given that he played last week and finished the practice week with a full workout. DL Akiem Hicks (ankle) is also active. Both players entered the night questionable.

Bears CB Jaylon Johnson and S Tashaun Gipson landed on the COVID list Sunday, knocking them out for Monday night's game against the Vikings. Johnson is easily Chicago's top corner, so the deactivations can only enhance the matchup for Vikings WRs and QB Kirk Cousins.

Bears WR Allen Robinson has been placed on the COVID list. He'll likely miss Monday night's game vs. the Vikings. Robinson, of course, has been a major disappointment this season and shouldn't have been in your Week 15 fantasy plans. His absence is a slight upgrade for WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) isn’t listed on the final Week 14 injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday, and will return for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. Robinson was having a disappointing season before this hamstring injury and can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups in his first game back.

Bears RB David Montgomery (shoulder, groin, glute) is not listed on the final injury report after putting in a full practice on Friday. He should be ready for a workhorse role on Sunday night against the Packers.

Bears RB David Montgomery (shoulder, groin, glute) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He should be fine for Sunday night's game vs. the Packers, but we'll get another update on Montgomery tomorrow.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice. It's his first official workout since Chicago returned from the Week 10 bye. We'll see if Robinson is ready for Sunday night's game vs. the Packers, but he wouldn't be a recommended fantasy starter.

Bears RB David Montgomery did not practice on Wednesday and is on the injury report with shoulder, groin and glute issues. This looks like a rest day after Montgomery racked up 29 touches in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, but we'll get another update tomorrow.
