2022 RTSports Outlook

Fields started 10 games his rookie season and had four games with 21-plus fantasy points. He had a rocky ride in year one, but showed plenty of potential. He had more interceptions (10) than total touchdowns (nine). Fields had his accuracy issues his first season in the NFL, finishing with the second worst bad throw percentage in football (21.9 percent). He completed just 58.9 percent of his passes. He did run for 420 yards, though, and had two games with 280-plus passing yards. He should be the starter from day one this season and gets a new head coach, so maybe a new offensive coordinator could get things going in the right direction for Fields. Fields has a lot of talent and the makeup of a top NFL quarterback. He has a terrific arm and can be accurate. Fields is a very good athlete that can make plays on the run. Fields does struggle some on his reads and has a tendency to lock on a receiver.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Fields has some real potential as the starter in this offense. He can rack up the rushing yards and scores, giving him a high weekly floor. He can finish with around 3,500 yards, 25 total touchdowns and 600-rushing yards.

RotoBaller's Outlook

The Chicago Bears entered last year with rookie quarterbackJustin Fieldssitting on the bench and starting veteranAndy Daltoninstead. Of course, that never made sense and was going to change at some throughout the season--and obviously, having drafted Fields with the 11th-overall pick in the first round, that was probably the right move to make as soon as the year hit Week 2. The growing pains were massive for Fields as he didn't even top eight fantasy points n any of his first four starts for the Bears. From that point on, though, and barring a couple of stinkers against Tampa Bay and Baltimore, Fields completed a much better and promising second half of the season before getting off the field for the remainder of the year by Week 16, thus missing three games. Starting in Week 6 and up until he got done for the season, Fields averaged a 14.6 FPPG (that includes mediocre outings of 3.2 and 3.5 FP against TB/BAL) while showcasing above-average rushing chops on top of his passing. However, the latter part of his skill set should improve next season if Fields wants to keep starting games and build a strong NFL career. Fields threw 10 interceptions to just seven touchdowns, the second-worst ratio among QBs with at least 200 pass attempts last year. Another concerning point was the lack of pass plays by the Bears with Fields on the gridiron: the rookie attempted just 270 total passes and fewer than 25 per game, the lowest figure among the same group of players. The Bears receivers all had down years--yes, including now-goneAllen Robinson II--but Fields should do a little bit more anyway. It's reasonable to project Fields for a top-24 finish in 2022 if he completes the season without missing any start and a potential high-end QB2 finish if his rushing prowess and tricks click, helping his overall numbers.

Player Notes
Jun 20 1:13pm ET

Dynasty | Bears sophomore quarterback Justin Fields has shown improvement with his mechanics and accuracy Dynasty Analysis: Of course, there's been no improvement in the receiver room with only Darnell Mooney of note. Fields is as mobile as any quarterback in the league and will have to rely on this mobility to make things happen in 2022, raising the potential for injury as well. There's little expectation for the Bears overall this season but further development by Fields and another high draft selection in 2023 to, hopefully, add more weapons for the passing game could be considered a success. Justin Fields is listed as DLF's QB13 and is a high upside QB2 in 2022.

Dynasty | Speaking from his youth football camp, Bears receiver Darnell Mooney says he's not satisfied and "I have a lot more in the tank that has been hidden." Dynasty Analysis: The third-year player has vaulted into the limelight following his first 1,000-yard campaign in 2021 and is now the team's top wideout. Mooney produced 1,055 yards and four touchdowns on 81 receptions in the midst of poor quarterback play but things are looking up in 2022, at least in the chemistry department with second-year quarterback Justin Fields. Plenty of questions remain about the Bears' poor receiver depth chart but Mooney's all-depth receiving skills should provide ample runway for continued production. Now in his age-25 season, DLF's WR38 is a borderline WR3 with tremendous upside.

Chicago Bears second-year quarterback Justin Fields appears to be a more established leader entering this year's offseason workouts. "Me not knowing if I'm going to be the leader of the team or not last year compared to this year means a whole different mindset," said Fields. "Just comfortability and knowing that I'm going to be the guy." Fields struggled in his first season but was also thrust into action far earlier than expected, making his first start in Week 3 due to an injury to quarterback Andy Dalton. Fields finished 2021 with 1,870 passing yards, seven touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in 12 games (10 starts), with an abysmal 26.4 QBR. However, if he can take a step forward with new head coach Matt Eberflus replacing Matt Nagy, Fields' dual-threat ability could make him an intriguing fantasy value, especially in 2QB and Best Ball formats. His development could also unlock the value of wide receiver Darnell Mooney and tight end Cole Kmet.

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields said he has confidence in his wide receiver group after additions such as Tajae Sharpe, Byron Pringle and Equanimeous St. Brown this offseason. "We don't have an Odell Beckham Jr. or a Cooper Kupp on our team, but at the end of the day I think if everybody is on their P's and Q's, and we're on top of everything and not making mistakes, the players we have right now are good enough," Fields said. Darnell Mooney cemented himself as the team's No. 1 wideout by posting 1,055 receiving yards in his second NFL season last year. The Bears also added talented rookie Velus Jones Jr., so Fields won't be without playmakers. Fantasy managers should consider the dual-threat QB as a QB2 with upside heading into his second season.

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields ended voluntary minicamp with a poor showing in seven-on-seven drills, but he has been praised by players and coaches during organized team activities this week. "He is ahead of pace," quarterbacks coach Andrew Janocko said. "I think he has really gone to work mentally in the classroom, away from the classroom, what he is doing with his iPad at night, how he studies, how he is ready and prepared the next day, how he comes and approaches every day." Fields' development will be interesting to watch as he learns a new offense under first-time offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. Fields has intriguing dual-threat skills at QB, but even though the Bears added receiver Velus Jones Jr. in the draft, it remains to be seen if Fields can take a big step forward in his second year with a lackluster group of weapons around him.

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields has the backing of many within the front office, specifically from general manager Ryan Poles, who recently expressed his support for the young signal-caller. "We're all in on Justin," remarked Poles during a recent interview with ESPN.com, a welcome vote of confidence for a player who struggled during his inaugural season. Unquestionably, the franchise is in the midst of a rebuild after hiring new head coach Matt Eberflus and parting ways with several veterans, including Allen Robinson II and Khalil Mack. Fields finished his rookie year by throwing for 1,870 yards, 10 picks, and seven touchdowns while connecting on only 58.9% of his passes. However, the former Buckeye continues to put in work this offseason. While he isn't anticipated to be a top-10 fantasy quarterback, he's worth a pick for managers looking for a backup late in drafts.

The Chicago Bears are fully committed to second-year quarterback Justin Fields. "We're all in on Justin [Fields]. I believe in Justin, the staff believes in Justin," general manager Ryan Poles said. The former first-round pick doesn't have many weapons in the passing game, even after the Bears took receiver Velus Jones Jr. in the third round of the draft. Fields has plenty of dual-threat ability at QB, but he could struggle in his second NFL season with Darnell Mooney and Byron Pringle as his top receiving targets. For his rushing ability alone, Fields is worth taking as a QB2 with upside, but don't be surprised if he has another up-and-down season as the Bears continue to rebuild from the Matt Nagy era.

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields has orchestrated organized workouts in preparation for the 2022-23 campaign. While official offseason team activities begin on Monday, the former Ohio State Buckeye has been drilling with teammates Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet while also working with veteran quarterback Colin Kaepernick. This is undoubtedly a step in the right direction toward improvement, although he has a way to go before convincing fantasy managers he's worthy of a roster spot. Fields finished his inaugural season by throwing for only 1,870 yards and seven touchdowns to go along with 10 interceptions and a hideous 58.9 completion percentage. However, with a new coaching regime in Chicago, a staff looking to tailor the playbook to Fields' strengths, there's a decent chance he could become a serviceable fantasy option at some point in the year.

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields must show improvement and be more consistent in 2022, or else the Bears might have to consider the possibility that he isn't their franchise QB. If his sack numbers remain high, if he's not doing a good job taking care of the football and if he's not leading scoring drives often enough, the Bears may move on sooner than later. Making things tougher, it looks like Fields will have to make due with a below-average offensive line and a below-average receiving corps. The 23-year-old first-rounder showed flashes in his rookie season but ultimately was way too inconsistent, throwing for 1,870 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions in 12 games (10 starts). Fields' rushing ability is what makes him exciting, but until he shows us more and the Bears give him more weapons, he'll just be an upside QB2 in fantasy.

Mar 7 11:00am ET

The Chicago Bears are extremely excited about the future for quarterback Justin Fields, who is heading into his second NFL season in 2022, but several league contacts pointed to his elongated throwing motion as a mechanical fix that must be made. There are also some questions about new quarterbacks coach Andrew Janocko, who doesn't have much experience working with the position. Fields struggled in his rookie season, but the offense wasn't exactly built for him and had plenty of issues on the offensive line in 2021. It's a good thing that Matt Nagy is no longer in Chicago, but it remains to be seen if the new coaching staff will be able to maximize Fields' talents going forward. At the very least, the 23-year-old will be an intriguing dual-threat QB2 with upside for fantasy managers.

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Eberflus and offensive coordinator Luke Getsy vow to create an offense that plays to quarterback Justin Fields' strengths. First of all, the Bears need to upgrade their offensive line to help better protect Fields, who took nine sacks in his first NFL start against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3. Chicago would also like to improve their weapons at wide receiver. Getsy has already stated that play-action passes will be a cornerstone of the offense, and we could also see more RPOs -- run-pass options. Fields, 22, played in 12 games in his rookie season (10 starts) and threw for 1,870 yards (58.9 completion percentage), seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions while being sacked 36 times. He added 72 carries for 420 yards and two more TDs. Fields has exciting dual-threat abilities under center, but he'll need better weapons to throw to in order to take the next step in his sophomore season.

The Chicago Bears hired former New York Giants wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert as their new receivers coach and passing-game coordinator on Wednesday, according to sources. Tolbert will work closely with newly hired offensive coordinator Luke Getsy and second-year quarterback Justin Fields, as well as Chicago's pass-catchers. Tolbert had been with the Giants for the past four seasons and served in the same role with the Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers, Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals after jumping from college to the NFL in 2003. In addition to Tolbert, Chicago also hired offensive line coach Chris Morgan, who had previously worked with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Chicago Bears are hiring former Packers assistant Luke Getsy as its new offensive coordinator. Getsy most recently spent his last three seasons in Green Bay, where he served as the quarterback coach and passing coordinator. He will play a pivotal role in the development of Justin Fields, the No. 11 pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, who finished last season with 1,870 yards, seven touchdowns, and 10 interceptions throughout 12 games. However, the team has some other issues to consider, so it's unknown how the hiring will impact Fields' outlook moving ahead.

Jan 27 11:40am ET

On Thursday, the Chicago Bears hired former Colts Defensive Coordinator Matt Eberflus to be their head coach. Eberflus took a Colts defense that was ranked 26th and 27th in total defense before he arrived and made them a top-10 unit. The Colts never featured tremendous pass rush rates and blitzed at one of the lowest rates in the league, but the Bears defensive scheme only blitzed 2.4% more and both teams ran a variation of a 4-3 base defense, so it's possible there won't be much change in philosophy. However, the biggest question will be who Eberflus hires as offensive coordinator and what that means for Justin Fields. Since Eberflus spent four years coaching under former NFL quarterback Frank Reich, it wouldn't be a stretch to assume that he soaked up some knowledge in that relationship and will use it to make a hire that's in the best interest of his quarterback's development.

The Chicago Bears are likely to move on from head coach Matt Nagy after the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, according to sources. In four seasons as the head coach in Chicago, Nagy led the Bears to just one winning season. The Bears front office will be looking to bring in a new head coach that can really take the development of first-round rookie quarterback Justin Fields to the next level in 2022 and beyond. Nagy's offense failed to finish above the bottom seven in the NFL in each of the last three seasons. And in each of the last two seasons, Nagy removed himself from play-calling duties in the middle of the season. The Bears definitely need better pass-catching options for Fields heading into the future, but Nagy could just never get this offense out of neutral in his final three seasons.

From RotoBaller

Jan 7 6:50pm ET

Even if Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields (ankle) clears the league's COVID-19 protocols by Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings, he's unlikely to play in Week 18 after missing practice Thursday and Friday. Head coach Matt Nagy announced on Friday that Andy Dalton will start under center, with Nick Foles backing him up. Fields' rookie season will likely end with him having played 12 games (10 starts) and completing 58.9% of his passes for 1,870 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions for a 73.2 passer rating. He also rushed 72 times for 420 yards and two touchdowns. Fields was sacked 36 times and lost four of 12 fumbles. The first-rounder had his moments, but overall it was a struggle in a lackluster offense that lacked creativity. Fields has plenty of long-term upside, but there's plenty of development left, and he'll be a QB2 with upside heading into fall fantasy drafts.
