  • Germain Ifedi Goes On Injured Reserve

    The Chicago Bears placed right tackle Germain Ifedi (knee) on Injured Reserve on Wednesday, but head coach Matt Nagy said that he will be back this season. Ifedi went down in the Week 5 win over the Las Vegas Raiders and will now miss at least the next three games. Elijah Wilkinson replaced Ifedi after his injury last Sunday and is expected to start at right tackle moving forward, beginning in Week 6 against the division-rival Green Bay Packers. It's a slight downgrade for rookie quarterback Justin Fields and Chicago's ground game entering a big Week 6 matchup.

  • Justin Fields - Week 6 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is riding high off his victory against the Raiders in Las Vegas but now must experience a rite of passage Bears fans know all too well; playing the rival Packers. Fields is making progress but, from a fantasy perspective, is not producing enough to warrant consideration. The rookie will face a Packers defense that is allowing the 17th fewest fantasy points to opposing passers. Green Bay has allowed 12 passing touchdowns through five games but have mostly held opponents passing yards in check. Fields is worth a roster stash right now but will be a very risky gamble deploying him into starting lineups for Week 5.

  • Justin Fields Expected To Run More On Sunday

    Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields is expected to run more following running back David Montgomery's (knee) placement on injured reserve, according to Chris Emma of Audacy. This is a promising progression for the mobile quarterback out of Ohio State, who averaged just three rushes and 10.5 yards on the ground through his first two starts. Fields, who was officially named Chicago's starting quarterback last week, gets a fairly favorable matchup against the Raiders on Sunday. He's a low-end QB2 who warrants consideration in two-quarterback or superflex formats.

  • Justin Fields Named Bears Starter Going Forward

    The Chicago Bears have named rookie quarterback Justin Fields as the starter going forward. Head coach Matt Nagy had been adamant up to this point that veteran Andy Dalton (knee) was the team's starter when healthy, but something obviously changed in the last few days. The 22-year-old Fields had a disastrous first NFL start in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns (68 yards passing, nine sacks taken), but he played better in the Week 4 win over the Detroit Lions (11-for-17, 209 yards passing) with Dalton still sidelined. Fields will need to play much better to retain the starting gig once Dalton is fully recovered from his knee injury, but for now, he'll be a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues for fantasy managers. He gets a matchup against a much-improved Las Vegas Raiders defense in Week 5.

  • Justin Fields Hits Big Plays In The Passing Game

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields completed 11-of-17 passes for 209 yards with one interception in the team's 24-14 victory over the Lions in Week 4. The performance was a promising bounce back effort after a disastrous offensive output against the Browns the week prior. The Bears leaned heavily on the running game and Fields was able to complete some big-time throws for huge gains when the moment presented itself. The rookie is still an unfinished product but took a positive step forward in this game. Fields is worth a dynasty stash but whether he is under center in Week 5 against the Raiders next week is not a slam dunk as quarterback Andy Dalton nears a return to the field.

  • Justin Fields Will Start Against The Lions

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields will start in Week 4 against the Lions. Veteran signal-caller Andy Dalton (knee) was initially labeled as a game-time decision but has since been downgraded to doubtful. As a result, the door is open for Fields to remain under center for the divisional matchup with Detroit. After the rookie had an uneventful debut in Week 3 versus the Cleveland Browns, where he racked up just 68 yards on a miserable 6-for-20 passing, he has a solid chance to bounce back against one of the worst teams in the league. Fantasy managers should classify the 22-year-old as a borderline start in deep Superflex formats in addition to being a realistic contrarian option in GPP DFS contests.

  • Justin Fields Not Guaranteed To Start In Week 4

    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said he "can't definitively say" who will start at quarterback in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions after rookie Justin Fields laid an egg in his first career NFL start in the Week 3 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Meanwhile, veteran Andy Dalton (knee) remains week-to-week after getting injured in Week 2. Could we see a Nick Foles sighting next week? It's possible, but the Bears continue to say that Dalton is their starter when healthy. Fields was sacked a whopping nine times and only ran the ball three times while throwing for 68 yards. The 22-year-old has the most upside, but as we saw on Sunday, he's nowhere near ready to be considered as a starter in single-QB leagues in 2021. There's not much to like from a fantasy standpoint with this Bears offense right now.

  • Justin Fields Possibly Dealing With A Hand Injury

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (hand) informed reporters he is "fine." The update comes after head coach Matt Nagy stated that the rookie signal-caller may have suffered a hand injury during the Week 3 blowout loss to the Browns. Filling in for Andy Dalton (knee), Fields underwhelmed on the statistical end on Sunday, finishing the afternoon with only 68 yards on a miserable 6-for-20 passing. He didn't do much on the ground either and only managed to scrounge together 12 yards off three carries. Nonetheless, with Dalton expected to be out a few more weeks, Fields is assumed to be under center moving ahead. Still, it wouldn't be a surprise if he pops up on the injury report ahead of the Week 4 matchup against the Lions, and if he can suit up, he has a terrific chance to rebound from his horrific showing against Cleveland.

  • Justin Fields To Start Against Browns

    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy announced on Wednesday that rookie quarterback Justin Fields will get the start in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns with Andy Dalton (knee) battling a bone bruise in his knee. The Bears said that Dalton will remain the starter when he's healthy, but Fields has a chance to change the organization's mind on Sunday. Fields didn't look all that great in relief of Dalton in last week's win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but he will get to face a Cleveland defense that has allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to QBs in the first two weeks. The 22-year-old first-rounder has more upside than Dalton, but remember that it'll be just his first career NFL start. Temper expectations for him as a QB2.

  • Justin Fields' Stock Rising Rapidly

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is expected to see an uptick in snaps during the Week 2 matchup against the Bengals. While Andy Dalton remains the starting signal-caller against his former team, Fields continues to progress faster than anticipated, so it's very likely he'll see more work on Sunday. The rookie looked great during his inaugural contest against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1, finishing with a touchdown off a three-yard dash in the third quarter. Nonetheless, it's evident he could be under center in a full-time capacity sooner rather than later, so fantasy managers in need of a quarterback should keep him on the radar moving ahead.

  • Justin Fields' Five Snaps Produce Touchdown

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields made his NFL debut Sunday night in the team's 34-14 loss to the Rams. Veteran Andy Dalton got the start in this game but Fields saw the field on the first possession, completing a pass on his first snap in the red zone. The rookie passer was used sparingly throughout, mostly in scoring opportunities. Fields cashed in his first NFL touchdown in the third quarter, taking a snap and hitting the edge to punch in a three-yard touchdown. Dalton didn't play terrible, but he did little to prove that he can play efficient, explosive offensive football. The hunger for Bears fans and fantasy managers alike to see Fields as the team's starter will intensify this week.

  • Could Justin Fields See The Field Week 1?

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields will serve as the team's backup Week 1 against the Rams on Sunday Night Football. The Bears coaching staff wants to bring the rookie passer along slowly and will turn to veteran Andy Dalton first to take on a vaunted Rams defense. But there has been rumblings that Fields could see a few snaps in the game, perhaps in red zone situations to confuse the Rams. Fields' speed could add a completely different dimension to an otherwise mediocre offense. Fields is worth a roster spot in all formats and could give a small taste of things to come later in the season in Week 1.

  • Justin Fields Not Being Rushed

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is "not being rushed" according to general manager Ryan Pace. It appears that the rookie won't start the season, but assuming that quarterback Andy Dalton doesn't set the league on fire, Fields could quickly assume the starting gig. It remains unseen how the first-round pick's skills will translate to the NFL, but if they share any resemblance to his days at Ohio State, fantasy managers should be excited about the signal-caller. That said, some skepticism is warranted in terms of how well his arm will translate at the next level, but his rushing ability appears fairly undeniable. At an ADP of 134, the former Buckeye is worth a bench spot in most standard leagues, though he can be left on the wire in shallow redraft leagues if Dalton does start.

  • Reserves Rave About Justin Fields

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields finished up his first professional preseason completing 30-of-49 passes for 274 yards, three touchdowns, zero interceptions and 94 rushing yards through three games. Each game, Fields has flashed his other-worldly athleticism and play-making ability, including a 22-yard laser throw for a touchdown on a roll-out to tight end Jesper Horsted against the Titans on Saturday. Reserves like wide receiver Jon'Vea Johnson have taken notice, telling reporters, "He just looks so poised," Johnson said. "I've been trying (to) do it like him. I've been feeling like he's just smooth with it." Fields will serve as the backup for Week 1 against the Rams but could be the starter by the end of September.

  • Justin Fields To Start Saturday Against Titans

    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that rookie quarterback Justin Fields will start on Saturday against the Tennessee Titans in the final preseason game and will play roughly two quarters. Veteran Andy Dalton, who is the expected Week 1 starter, will not suit up on Saturday. Fields has gone 23-for-39 (59 percent) for 222 yards (5.7 yards per attempt) with one touchdown and one interception through two preseason games, and he also has nine carries for 76 yards. The Bears plan to be patient with Fields, but Dalton will be on a very short leash, and most people are expecting Fields to get his shot sooner than later. The 22-year-old has plenty of upside as a dual-threat quarterback and is worth taking a shot on as a QB2/3 in superflex leagues.

  • Justin Fields Posts 126 Total Yards

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields completed 9-of-19 passes for 80 yards and racked up 46 rushing yards in the team's second preseason game against the Bills. It was not as productive, nor as entertaining, as his first performance last week against the Dolphins but still flashed his elite skills. The Bears offensive line was a mess the entire game and Fields' day was also spoiled by drops. The rookie still flashed his elite speed to pick up some first downs and added a beautiful 33-yard pass to Jesse James in the third quarter. Fields also endured a scary moment when an untouched Bills defender hit Fields high and sent his helmet flying off. The rookie would get up and play the rest of the quarter. It was an uneven performance but Fields continues to narrow the gap between himself and QB1 Andy Dalton.

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (groin) will practice Thursday. He sat out Wednesday's practice due to a groin injury. The Bears are being cautious with their rookie QB, and it will be a light day for Fields on Thursday. The plan is for the 2021 first-round pick to play in the team's second preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. Fields had a strong preseason debut, completing 14-of-20 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for 33 yards and a score. Andy Dalton will start Week 1 but expect Fields to supplant him as the Bears starting quarterback during the regular season.

  • Teven Jenkins Undergoing Back Surgery

    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that second-round left tackle Teven Jenkins (back) is undergoing back surgery on Wednesday, but "the goal is to get him back this season." The Bears are eyeing a November return for Jenkins, but it's a blow to Chicago's offensive line nevertheless, as the rookie was projected to start at left tackle to begin the 2021 regular season. Chicago signed 39-year-old veteran Jason Peters earlier this week, and he figures to compete with Elijah Wilkinson for the starting left tackle spot with Jenkins now out. They'll likely be protecting quarterback Andy Dalton's blind side in Week 1, but rookie Justin Fields could be given a chance sooner than later in 2021 if the Red Rifle struggles out of the gates.

    Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields (groin) is sitting out Wednesday's practice due to a groin injury. Bears head coach Matt Nagy told the media that the team is being cautious with him. Nagy still expects for Fields to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. Fields put together a strong preseason debut, completing 14-of-20 passes for 142 yards and a touchdown while also rushing for 33 yards and a score. Andy Dalton is slated to begin the year as the team's starting quarterback, but Fields could take over early on if he continues to progress and if Dalton struggles.

  • Justin Fields First-Team Snaps To Increase

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields will see more snaps this week with the first-team offense heading into the team's second preseason game against the Bills. Head coach Matt Nagy characterized the increase as part of "the evaluation process" as the rookie passer will get a chance to build more chemistry with veteran receivers like Allen Robinson II and Marquise Goodwin. Fields overcame a bumpy start in his first preseason game to complete 14-of-20 passes for 142 passing yards, 33 rushing yards with two total touchdowns (one passing, one rushing). As of now, veteran quarterback Andy Dalton still is the QB1 for the Bears.

  • Justin Fields Struggles, Then Shines In Preseason Debut

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields completed 14-of-20 passes for 142 yards with one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown in his preseason debut against the Dolphins. It did not start out pretty for Fields' professional debut as the rookie missed on his first few pass attempts, fumbled twice and the offense suffered several penalties. But Fields got cooking just before the half, leading the team down the field before a 53-yard field goal by Cairo Santos got the Bears on the board offensively. The rookie phenom came out in the second half slinging, using his legs and arm to make some crafty plays. He tucked the ball and ran one in for a touchdown and then found tight end Jesse James wide open for an easy touchdown pass. Some ups and downs are to be expected but Fields showcased his elite traits against the Dolphins.

  • Justin Fields To Play Past Halftime Saturday

    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy told reporters on Thursday that rookie quarterback Justin Fields will play "past halftime" Saturday against the Dolphins. The team is in Miami participating in joint practices with the Dolphins before both teams kick off their preseason schedule on Saturday. Nagy said that Fields could even play into the fourth quarter, maintaining the coaching staff's stance that they want the rookie passer to play as many in-game snaps as possible. Fields has endured a typical rookie training camp; mixing bumpy moments with flashes of elite playmaking. Fields is not expected to be named starter out of the gate so this will be an excellent chance for Bears fans and dynasty managers to get a strong look at the talented passer.

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields connected on several deep balls for touchdowns during the team's joint practice with the Dolphins on Wednesday. This was the first time Fields has faced an opponent in the NFL that wasn't his own team and showed his fantastic arm. Flashy plays have become commonplace for the rookie passer, who each day makes a couple throws that show off his elite traits. Reports out of camp are that Fields connected downfield twice to Jon'Vea Johnson for touchdowns. Fields is making progress but the Bears stance that Andy Dalton will be their Week 1 starter has not changed.

    According to Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy, rookie quarterback Justin Fields is in line for a lot of work in preseason games, starting with this Saturday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Bears beat reporter Dan Wiederer reports that Nagy has been "emphatic" when stating that Fields will see a lot of preseason action. However, Wiederer also added that Nagy will need to assess the health and status of the team's offensive line before fully committing to Fields' workload. Veteran Andy Dalton is expected to start the year as the team's quarterback, but Fields has a chance to usurp Dalton at just about any point depending on how things go for both quarterbacks.

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields faced the team's starting defense at practice on Friday. The rookie quarterback did not throw to the Bears first-team offense but got his first real test against Khalil Mack and Co. The results were mixed, as Fields made an egregious error in the red zone and was picked off on a shovel pass by linebacker Roquan Smith. But Fields also connected on several excellent red zone throws, including one side-arm sling to rookie running back Khalil Herbert for a score. For every mistake Fields has made, he also has backed it up with elite-level throws as well. As of now, quarterback Andy Dalton is still projected to be QB1 in Week 1 for the Bears.

Fields flashed every tool in his uber-talented toolbox; flashing the speed to extend plays, show anticipation or patience to spring receivers free and capped it off with a beautiful deep ball to receiver Javon Wims for a touchdown. The rookie passer has gotten mixed reviews from his first few practices but it is fair to expect bumps in the road so early in camp. Fields is expected to see plenty of playing time during the preseason, giving Bears fans and fantasy managers a lot to get excited about in the coming weeks.

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields' first few days of training camp have been typical of a rookie thus far. Reports of every dynamite, next-level throw has been met with a misread or an interception in the early portions of camp. This is completely to be expected as Fields adjusts to the speed of the NFL game. But GM Ryan Pace continues to sing the praises of his rookie passers intangibles, telling The Athletic that he recently was at Halas Hall on Saturday afternoon thinking he was all by himself until he noticed Fields putting in extra work alone in the weight room. Fields continues to check plenty of boxes that should have Bears fans excited but fantasy teams need to have patience for a player whose ceiling is limitless.

  • Justin Fields Sharper In Second Training Camp Practice

    Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields showed improvement in Friday's practice. Per Patrick Finley of the Sun Times, "Fields was sharper today than he was yesterday... [the] team has to be excited about the improvement." There are high expectations for Fields in Chicago, but it's unfair to expect him to light it up from day one. It's encouraging to see Fields improving early on in camp. Fields has plenty of fantasy upside due to his dual-threat ability at the quarterback position, and a strong training camp could mean that Fields nabs the starting job from Andy Dalton early in the season. Fields projects as an upside QB2 for fantasy purposes, and monitoring his progress in camp will be important.

    Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said he will take an aggressive approach to playing time in the preseason, and rookie quarterback Justin Fields is "going to get a healthy amount of reps." Fields is expected to open his first season in the NFL as the backup to veteran Andy Dalton, but the rookie will have plenty of chances along the way to prove that he's the better option in 2021. Dalton will have a short leash as well, so it's a good bet that Fields will be making starts at some point this year. Nagy has also been impressed with Fields' knowledge of the offense to this point. The dynamic athlete with a very strong arm has heaps of upside and could be a great value if he becomes the starter sooner than later as the current No. 19 fantasy QB off draft boards.

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields will start the first training camp of his NFL career with a boatload of expectations. The Bears traded up in this year's draft to take Fields at number 11 and is competing with veteran Andy Dalton for the starting job. Fields may start the season as the backup but already is earning national praise and some lofty comparisons. ESPN analyst recently described Fields as "a bigger, stronger and faster Dak Prescott". If the talented passer can reach those heights, Bears fans may finally get what they've never had; a franchise quarterback. Fields will be an excellent dynasty/keeper player and a late-round stash in standard formats who could become a quality fantasy starter by season's end.
