2022 Fantasy Outlook
Fields endured a rough rookie year after taking the starting job Week 3 last season. The dual-threat QB was only a threat on the ground (420 yards, two TD), while his on-target percentage (70.0) ranked 29th and his completion percentage (58.9) was 30th. He tried to put his strong arm to use with a 9.8-yard average target depth, second in the league only to Russell Wilson, and his downfield passing was mostly middle of the pack (the four INTs on attempts of 20-plus yards notwithstanding). That's a starting point for new offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, the QBs coach and passing game coordinator in Green Bay the last three years, though the Bears didn't get Fields much else in the way of help this offseason. RB David Montgomery and TE Cole Kmet are useful on short throws, but neither has been a threat downfield, and the wideout group looks thin beyond de facto No. 1 Darnell Mooney. The Bears added only Byron Pringle and Equanimeous St. Brown in free agency to replace Allen Robinson, later drafting 25-year-old speedster Velus Jones in the third round. Fields has a nice foundation of rushing stats to build fantasy value, but his passing still needs to take a major jump, and he won't have a strong group of receivers supporting him.

Hip
January 4, 2023
Fields is dealing with a strained hip and has been ruled out for Sunday's season finale against the Vikings.
ANALYSIS
With Fields sitting out the contest, Nathan Peterman will start at quarterback for the Bears. Fields will thus finish the 2022 campaign having completed 192 of 318 passing attempts (60.4 percent) for 2,242 yards, 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions to go along with 160 carries for 1,143 yards and eight rushing scores in 15 games. Looking ahead to next season, Fields' dual-threat ability will make him a coveted fantasy asset, though he'll need to prove that he's making progress as a passer. The Bears are likely to surround him with several new pass-catching options in 2023 after few of his current weapons emerged as reliable targets this season. Fields will be going into the third year of his rookie contract that runs through 2024.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
The Bears traded up to select Fields 11th overall in this year's draft, hoping they've found their franchise quarterback after finally giving up on Mitchell Trubisky. Fields is a strong-armed, accurate passer with good size (6-3, 227) and excellent speed. He ran a 4.46 40 at his pro day, even more impressive considering his weight. Fields' mobility might be his best asset. He can throw on the run and uses his legs to make something out of nothing when plays break down. At Ohio State, he got into trouble when he held the ball too long and sometimes failed to work through progressions, though the notion that he's a one-read QB seems overblown. He'll have time to work on those issues, as he's expected to back up free-agent Andy Dalton to start the season. If forced into action, or if coach Matt Nagy decides the future is now, Fields can probably get by on his outstanding athletic ability while he develops as a passer. Plus, he has playmaker Allen Robinson to lean on, and the Bears should get bigger contributions from deep threat Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet, the team's second-round pick a year ago. Chicago also addressed the O-Line in the draft with second-round pick Teven Jenkins (6-6, 317), who is expected to start at left tackle. The Bears say they'll be patient with Fields, but it will surprise no one if he moves into the starting job this season. If so, he certainly has fantasy upside as a dual-threat QB.
