Week 1
Fields only was on the field for 5 snaps and he outproduced Andy Dalton in fantasy points. The guy just brings a different element to the game that Andy Dalton doesn’t have at this point in his career. The defense must be aware of Fields taking off at any point and must account for every inch of the field. Fields was able to get into the end zone on a 3-yard rush off a read option in the third quarter. He also finished 2 for 2 for 10 yards in the passing game. It’s only a matter of time before we get to see Justin Fields taking all the snaps for this Bears offense.
Matt Nagy hasn’t named a starter for the Bears’ Week 2 game against Cincinnati yet, but it appears Andy Dalton will get another start. We have Fields at QB35 this week. However, if Nagy is watching the same thing we are, Fields will be named the starter sooner than later. He gives the Bears a better chance to win games, plain and simple. We have him at QB12 the rest of the season. If this guy is somehow on your waiver wire, go get him now because it won’t be long before he is putting up big numbers as the starter for the Bears.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Fields entered college dead-even with Trevor Lawrence in recruiting rankings, with the 2 of them splitting the top spots across recruiting services.
  • As a 1st-time starter at Ohio State in 2019, Fields ranked 3rd in the nation in passing efficiency. He trailed only Joe Burrow and Jalen Hurts.
  • Fields also ranked 8th nationally with 9.2 yards per pass attempt that season and delivered a terrific 11.6% passing-TD rate.
  • In 2020, he posted 9.3 YPA. Even better, Fields ranked 2nd among 154 draft-eligible QBs in Pro Football Focus’ adjusted completion rate -- trailing only Mac Jones.
  • PFF deemed him “one of the most accurate quarterbacks we’ve ever charted.”
  • Fields ran a 4.46-second 40 at his pro day. Even if you give that the 0.05 pro-day penalty, Fields would still rank 99th percentile at the position.
  • The former Buckeye ranked 13th in scrambles per dropback among 154 draft-eligible QBs in 2020, according to PFF data. He averaged a scramble every 8.5 dropbacks. Zach Wilson averaged 1 every 22.8, Lawrence 1 every 36.4 and Jones 1 every 47.6. (There’s no data for Lance, who played just 1 game in 2020.)
  • Check our Dynasty Prospect Scouting Report for more, including clips of Fields in action.
  • The Bears signed Andy Dalton this offseason to a 1-year, $10 million contract and tweeted on March 24 that he was “QB1.”
  • The NFL drafted 58 first-round QBs from 2002 (expanded to 32 teams) and last season. On average, the 1st start for those players came in Game 7.5. The median for the group: Game 4.
  • Widdle it down to the 36 QBs taken among the top 12 picks, and the average 1st start comes in Game 5.35. The median: Game 3.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Fields enjoyed a terrific 2 seasons as Ohio State’s starter. Chicago jumped up from #20 to #11 to secure Fields.

Sure, Matt Nagy was on the Kansas City staff that sat Patrick Mahomes for a year behind Alex Smith. And the same could happen here. But Nagy might be coaching for his job. More importantly, Fields is simply a bigger talent. History says a highly drafted QB is likely to start at some point in his rookie season -- and usually sooner than later. We’re betting Fields starts more games than Dalton this year. The more games he starts, the more opportunity to turn his combo of rushing and passing ability into a high fantasy ceiling. Fields carries immediate upside well into the position’s top 12.

Bears QB Justin Fields is expected to see "increased snaps" in today's game vs. the Bengals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "Fields is growing every day," Rapoport adds. "There are 'wow' moments, 'wow' throws every single day in practice." The rookie played 5 snaps in the opener, completing both of his passes for 10 yards and scoring a 3-yard rushing TD. It's only a matter of time before he takes over as Chicago's starter. Current starter Andy Dalton obviously shouldn't be in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters Tuesday morning that QB Justin Fields will start the 3rd and final preseason game and play about 2 quarters. Don't get too excited, though. Nagy also said QB Andy Dalton will sit "because he's the Week 1 starter," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll gladly take the extra exposure for Fields anyway. Even with Dalton still on track to open the season, it's just a matter of time before Chicago shifts to its new franchise QB.

Bears HC Matt Nagy expects QB Justin Fields (groin) to play in Saturday's preseason game vs. the Bills. So that groin injury obviously isn't serious. Nagy also said that QB Andy Dalton will start and play at least a quarter and a half. The veteran continues to look like the favorite to start Week 1. We'll see if the rookie can make up ground this weekend.

Bears QB Justin Fields missed Wednesday's practice with a groin injury. HC Matt Nagy said the team doesn't believe it's a significant injury but that Fields might not be able to play in the 2nd preseason game vs. the Bills on Saturday. That'd hurt the rookie's chances of moving past QB Andy Dalton before Week 1.

The Athletic's Adam Jahns expects the Bears offense to feature more deep passes this season. "[HC Matt] Nagy’s offense has always been vertical," Jahns writes. "His practices in the offseason program and camp have featured plenty of shots down the field, including this year with [Andy] Dalton and [Justin] Fields in OTAs and minicamp. Nagy wants to be aggressive down the field. It’s in his playbook and in his nature as a coach and play-caller." QB Mitchell Trubisky struggled throwing deep over the past few seasons -- but it's a strength of Fields' game. More deep shots would be particularly good news for speedy WR Darnell Mooney.
