View QB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • The Bears landed Fields at 11th overall in the 2021 draft. He was the 4th QB selected.
  • Limited by former HC Matt Nagy’s fascination with Andy Dalton and rib, ankle and hand injuries, Fields went on to start only 10 games. He also missed 1 game on the COVID list.
  • The rookie ranked top-10 in fantasy scoring 4 times, with 3 such finishes coming over his final 5 games.
  • His rushing production was key. Fields totaled 72-420-2, highlighted by games with 103 and 74 yards.
  • Playing behind a bad O-line, Fields’ passing was never consistent.
  • He ranked 29th among 33 qualifiers in on-target rate. Note: He dealt with the 3rd-highest drop rate in the sample.
  • Among 33 QBs with 250+ dropbacks, Fields ranked 21st in YPA, 27th in PFF passing grade and 33rd in adjusted completion rate.
  • He did push the ball down field, ranking 2nd behind Russell Wilson in average depth of target.
  • Per USA Today’s Doug Farrar, Fields had the NFL’s highest passer rating (138.5) on designed rollouts. They were called on only 7% of his passes, though. Look for that number to grow in 2022 under a new staff.
  • The Bears have 213 vacated targets, with the biggest chunk coming from new Ram Allen Robinson.
  • Chicago failed to upgrade Field’s supporting cast. Byron Pringle, Equanimeous St. Brown and rookie speedster Velus Jones are the primary candidates for snaps behind Darnell Mooney.
  • This O-line doesn’t look much better. The play of OT Teven Jenkins will be key; the 2nd-year Round 2 pick played only 6 games following back surgery.
  • New OC Luke Getsy arrives after spending 3 seasons as Green Bay’s QBs coach. He’s never called plays at the NFL level.
  • He’s spoken highly of Fields. From early May: "I've been super impressed with him, I really have," Getsy said. "There's no one in the building that works harder than him. There's no one that cares more than him. We're off to a great start. He's really accepted this challenge. We're asking a lot of him to learn a lot of new things. He's been a pleasure to work with.”
  • HC Matt Eberflus talked up Fields’ deep ball in June, indicating that it’ll remain a key aspect of the offense.
  • The 2nd-year QB has reportedly quickened his release when passing and improved at throwing on the move. "The Bears are excited for offensive coordinator Luke Getsy's system, which should give Fields more space to operate," Jeremy Fowler writes.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

While there’s some refining to be done, we love Fields as an uber-talented passer.

His rushing upside is clear. And an upgraded coaching staff helps boost the case for a 2022 breakout.

However, a lack of playmakers makes it tough to place Fields much higher than the middle of QB2 range. Like so many QBs around him, the 2nd-year man projects as a matchup-based spot-starter.

Justin Fields, QB CHI

6:25am EDT 9/26/22

Bears passing game remains nearly nonexistent

Bears QB Justin Fields logged just 17 pass attempts in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Texans, completing 8 for 106 yards, 0 INTs and 2 INTs. Through 3 weeks, Chicago has 10 fewer pass attempts than any other team in the league, with the next lowest being a Giants offense that has yet to play in Week 3. WR Darnell Mooney (6 targets) and TE Cole Kmet (3) assumed their expected positions as Chicago's target leaders, but the shares won't matter until the Bears begrudgingly throw the ball more. Each guy caught just 2 balls vs. Houston.

Bears QB Justin Fields completed 7 of 11 attempts for 70 yards and 1 INT in Sunday’s loss at Green Bay. Laughable. The Bears ran only 41 plays, hurt by going a combined 1 for 8 on 3rd and 4th downs. There was simply nothing positive to take away from this one, outside of Fields scoring on a 3-yard run in the 1st quarter. Late in the game, he had a 6-yard rushing score wiped out following a review. He looked to get in on the next play, but the officials thought differently. He’ll look to rebound at home vs. a young Houston defense.

The Bears didn't need QB Justin Fields to do much in a rain-soaked victory over the 49ers Sunday. He completed 8 of just 17 pass attempts for 121 yards and 2 TDs, plus an INT. Fields found WR Dante Pettis for a 51-yard score in the 3rd quarter and Equanimeous St. Brown from 18 yards out in the 4th. The QB added just 28 yards on 11 carries. The weather definitely dampened the Week 1 production. We'll see whether a Week 2 visit to Green Bay can help make Fields a true fantasy starting option for a Week 3 home date with Houston.

Chicago has been hit with heavy rains this morning. It looks like the worst of it will be gone by kickoff of 49ers-Bears, but there will be lingering showers -- and a wet field. The forecast also calls for 15-20 mph winds. Less than ideal scoring conditions, although this looked like a low-scoring game anyways. Expect lots of running from both teams.

Dynasty Write-up
Fields needs work as a passer, but his rookie-year rushing output was enough to excite us long-term. Chicago moving on from Matt Nagy was a fine first offseason step. Next up is upgrading the supporting cast around David Montgomery and Darnell Mooney. That's failed to happen this offseason, putting a damper on Fields' short-term upside.
