Shark Bites

Bears QB Justin Fields delivered a 55-yard TD run among 6 carries for 71 yards in Sunday's loss to the Packers, his return after a game lost to a shoulder injury. Fields also completed 20 of 25 passes for 254 yards, but he also tossed a pair of INTs. Fields and the Bears get a Week 14 bye before facing the Eagles, Bills and Lions in the final 3 weeks for most fantasy football leagues.

Bears QB Justin Fields will miss Week 18 with a hip injury. Per HC Matt Eberflus, an MRI showed a hip strain for the young QB. In his place, Chicago will roll out Nathan Peterman. The 28-year-old owns a career completion rate of 52.5% on 141 attempts. The Vikings defense figures to be a chalky option in DFS formats.

Bears QB Justin Fields ran for 132 yards on 10 carries in Sunday's lopsided loss at Detroit. It was his 3rd game of more than 100 rushing yards this season. Fields stunk as a passer, though, completing just 7 of his 21 attempts for 75 yards, 1 TD and an INT. His lone score went to TE Cole Kmet, 1 of just 4 Bears to catch any passes. Kmet led the team with 27 yards on 2 catches. Fields also took 7 sacks for the game and lost a fumble. He'll get another upside matchup in Week 18 against the Vikings but will be tougher to trust after 2 straight poor outings -- in real and fantasy football terms.

Bears QB Justin Fields threw for just 119 yards and a TD in Saturday's loss to the Bills. He added a surprisingly low 11 rushing yards on 7 carries. We'd bet on a rebound for Fields in a Week 17 visit to the Detroit (in the dome).

Bears QB Justin Fields ran for 95 yards on 15 attempts in Sunday's loss to the Eagles, leading the team in both categories. That pushed him beyond 1,000 rushing yards for the season, making Fields just the 4th QB to reach that level. Fields added 152 yards and 2 TDs passing, a particularly nice fantasy performance overall against 1 of the league's toughest QB-scoring matchups. Fields will likely be worth starting despite another tough scoring matchup with the Bills next week. Then comes a more favorable spot at Detroit in Week 17.

Bears QB Justin Fields gets an Eagles defense that has allowed the league's 2nd-fewest QB points for the season and arrives as the 4th-worst scoring matchup for the position by our adjusted fantasy points allowed. But Philly has allowed the league's 12th most rushing yards to QBs despite facing the fewest QB carries for the year. That bodes well for Fields' floor. He's also off the injury report for the 1st time since hurting his shoulder in Week 11. That should help the QB's designed runs. Fields had just 1 his last time out. His previous 2 games (the 2nd of which was his injury game) found the QB getting 8 designed runs each time, according to Pro Football Focus.
