  • Justin Fields Questionable To Face Jets

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (shoulder) is officially questionable for the Week 12 matchup with the New York Jets. Head coach Matt Eberflus said the team is hoping to take the decision to play Fields up until game time on Sunday. Fields is the overall QB4 on the season after a sluggish start and has been arguably the most explosive breakout player in all of fantasy football. That said, fantasy managers will surely be hurting if he's ruled out. The New York Jets have been a top-10 unit against fantasy quarterbacks this season, but Fields is very much in the must-start category with his rushing upside. The good news is no quarterbacks are on a bye week so it shouldn't be too difficult to find a streamer, but losing Fields' ceiling will be disappointing. If he's out, Trevor Siemian will start for Chicago. He'd only be viable in superflex or two-QB leagues.

  • Justin Fields Puts In Another Limited Practice

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Fields is dealing with a separated shoulder and partially torn ligaments in his left, non-throwing shoulder. It's good news that it's not his throwing arm, but the 23-year-old dual-threat signal-caller feels pain every time he throws and there is some concern that the Bears might play it safe and hold their franchise QB out as a precaution. Fields has become a must-start QB1 in fantasy in his second NFL season, but he'll be a bit more risky if he plays this Sunday against a tough New York Jets defense. If he's inactive on Sunday, backup Trevor Siemian would get the start and would merely be a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex formats.

  • Justin Fields Unlikely To Play In Week 12?

    The Athletic's Jon Greenberg writes that it seems unlikely that the Chicago Bears would let quarterback Justin Fields (shoulder) play with his injury, particularly given the context (the Bears are 3-8) and the style of Fields' play. "I just feel like if I can play and that I'm not furthering the risk of injury and I can do what I need to do to be able to protect myself, I think that'll be good enough for me to play," Fields said. The 23-year-old got in some practice work on Wednesday, but he's dealing with a separated left shoulder and partially torn ligaments, so it's a pretty serious injury, even if it's to his non-throwing shoulder. Fields says he feels pain every time he throws. Fantasy managers that have been riding the up-and-coming dual-threat QB need to have a backup plan at the QB position this week.

  • Justin Fields Dealing With A Separated Shoulder

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (shoulder) is dealing with a separated shoulder and a partially torn ligament. The second-year quarterback suffered the injury last week against the Atlanta Falcons but finished the game. While the injury sounds painful, Fields could play against the New York Jets this week. The former Ohio State quarterback has been a fantasy cheat code over the past six weeks, averaging 28.8 fantasy points per game. Furthermore, he has averaged 106.7 rushing yards per game during that span, totaling at least 60 yards in every contest. Trevor Siemian would get the start if Fields can't go on Sunday. However, fantasy players should not consider Siemian a suitable replacement for the young star quarterback.

  • Justin Fields Day-To-Day, Will Practice Wednesday

    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said that quarterback Justin Fields (shoulder) is day-to-day and his status going into the Week 12 game against the New York Jets on Sunday is undetermined. However, Fields has been cleared to practice on Wednesday, and the Bears aren't considering putting him on Injured Reserve after he suffered a left shoulder injury in Week 11 against the Atlanta Falcons. The 23-year-old will be listed as limited on Wednesday for their walk-through, but it's a good sign for his availability this weekend. If for some reason Fields isn't cleared to play, Trevor Siemian would get the start under center for the Bears. As things stand now, Fields is on the right side of questionable for Week 12, and he'll be a must-start QB1 if he's active, despite the tough matchup against the Jets defense.

  • Justin Fields Dislocated Shoulder, Remains Day-To-Day

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields suffered a shoulder dislocation during Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons, head coach Matt Eberflus told the media. The injury is painful and Fields will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis, though Eberflus would not rule out the possibility of the quarterback's season being over. He has looked fantastic as of late, ranking as the QB1 while accumulating 193.54 fantasy points from Weeks 5 to 11. If Fields does have to miss time, Trevor Siemian would take over as Chicago's quarterback.

  • Justin Fields Evaluated For Shoulder Injury

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fielder (shoulder) was carted to the locker room for further evaluation and testing following Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The mobile quarterback certainly didn't look 100 percent in the second half. He was seen clutching his shoulder and wincing in pain throughout the contest. When all was said and done, Fields finished with 14 completions for 153 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also rushed a whopping 18 times for 85 yards and one touchdown on the ground. Between his four sacks and staggering number of rushes, Fields clearly put his body on the line during Sunday's game. Fantasy managers should be on the lookout for an injury update later Sunday evening.

  • Justin Fields Star Will Continue Against Falcons

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields will have a plus-matchup against a Falcons defense that is allowing the ninth most fantasy points to opposing passers heading into Week 11. Fields has taken the NFL by storm over the last month and has 14 total touchdowns over his last five games. The Bears are averaging 201.7 team rushing yards a game this season and Fields is responsible for 111 rushing yards a game over his last four played. The intriguing element of this week's matchup is that the Falcons currently surrender an NFL-worst 280.4 passing yards a game. They have allowed seven different quarterbacks to post more than 17 fantasy points against them, creating a very high floor for Fields to post QB1 numbers again in Week 11.

  • Justin Fields Dazzles Again In Loss

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields completed 12-of-20 passes for 167 yards with two passing touchdowns, one interception, one rushing touchdown and a team-high 147 rushing yards in the Bears Week 10 loss to the Lions. Fields continues to tear through the NFL and set another NFL record with 549 rushing yards over his last five games as a passer. Fields made plays all over the field and showed off his dynamic elusiveness but a second-half interception, that turned into a touchdown, changed the tenor of the game. Fields has cemented himself as, at the very least, a top-10 fantasy quarterback play moving forward.

  • Justin Fields Carries QB1 Value Against Lions

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields will try and stay hot against a very vulnerable Lions defense in Week 10. Fields is coming off a dynamic performance against the Dolphins, when he set an NFL regular season record for rushing yards by a quarterback with 178. He also tallied four total touchdowns and has looked fantastic over the past three games while the Bears offense are averaging 31.3 points a game during that span. Enter the Lions, who are allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing passers, including 24 fantasy points or more surrendered to four different quarterbacks this season. Fields has a green-light matchup and will carry top-10 fantasy value at the quarterback position for Week 10.
