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.

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.

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.

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.

Jan 6 1:10pm ET

The Chicago Bears placed rookie quarterback Justin Fields on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday. Fields tested positive for the virus but is vaccinated, so there's a chance he could clear the league's COVID protocols and play in the Week 18 regular season finale on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. However, with his positive test coming this late in the week, it's unlikely that the 22-year-old will be active to close out his first season in the NFL. The 11th overall pick had an up-and-down rookie season, going 159-for-270 for 1,870 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions while adding 72 carries for 420 yards and two more TDs. With better weapons around him and a better coaching staff to guide him, Fields could develop into a successful franchise QB in Chicago. Heading into next season, he'll be a high-end QB2 target with QB1 upside. Expect veteran Andy Dalton to start under center in Week 18 if Fields isn't cleared.

Jan 5 7:20pm ET

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that rookie quarterback Justin Fields (ankle) will practice in full on Wednesday and will start on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings in the Week 18 regular season finale. With nothing left to play for, Fields appears to be 100%, otherwise it's highly unlikely the Bears would risk further injury to who they hope is the future face of the franchise. Fields has missed the last two games, but he'll return against a Vikings team that he went 26-for-39 for 285 yards and a touchdown against his last time out before getting injured. The dual-threat QB has had his share of ups and downs in this lackluster Bears offense in his first 12 games (10 starts) -- he has seven touchdowns, 10 interceptions and a 25.7 QBR -- but Fields could have high-end QB2 upside with several big-name starting QBs potentially resting this weekend.

Dec 31 4:50pm ET

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (ankle) was limited in practice on Friday and veteran passer Andy Dalton has been named the starter for Week 17. The rookie appears to still be banged up enough for the Bears to err on the side of caution with their future franchise passer. He hasn't been officially ruled out yet but it is hard to imagine the Bears allowing him to dress, especially after Nick Foles was also named the backup for the team's matchup against the Giants. Perhaps the hope is that Fields can play in the final week of the season and needs as many developmental reps as possible. For the season, Fields has racked up 420 rushing yards, 1,870 passing yards with nine total touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Dec 31 4:20pm ET

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (ankle) is not expected to suit up in Week 17 against the Giants after head coach Matt Nagy told reporters Andy Dalton will get the start. The rookie passer remains banged up and this is an unfortunate way to head towards the finish line of his first professional season. Perhaps the hope is that Fields can play in the final week against the Vikings because he needs as many developmental snaps as possible. For the season Fields has completed 58.9% of his passes for 1,870 passing yards, seven touchdowns, 10 interceptions to go along with 420 rushing yards.

Dec 30 5:30pm ET

Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday. Fields will probably be questionable on the final injury report for Week 17 against the New York Giants, and head coach Matt Nagy said Fields needs to be pretty healthy in order to play. In other words, the Bears aren't just going to throw their first-round QB out there in harm's way if he's not 100% good to go. Andy Dalton (groin) has been practicing in full this week, so if Fields misses a second straight game, it could be Dalton under center instead of Nick Foles, who got the start in Week 16. Despite an uneven rookie year in a lackluster offense, the 22-year-old Fields has the most QB2 upside of the group and gives the Bears the best chance to win.

Dec 29 6:20pm ET

Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields (ankle) put in a limited practice on Wednesday after he was inactive last week. Andy Dalton (groin) also practiced in full, meaning that it's unlikely we'll see Nick Foles make a second straight start despite leading the team to a comeback win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 16. Head coach Matt Nagy said it's still too early to determine who will start under center for the Bears in Week 17 against the New York Giants, but Fields appears to have a good chance of returning if he can avoid setbacks later in the week. It's been an up-and-down season for the 22-year-old, but he offers the most upside at the position for the Bears and fantasy managers. Fields will be a midrange QB2 for those in two-QB leagues if he returns this weekend.

Dec 26 3:00pm ET

Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields (ankle) is officially inactive in Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. Fields came into this game as questionable, but the Bears announced on Friday that Nick Foles would be getting the start, regardless of whether Fields was active. Andy Dalton (groin) is also inactive after just returning from the COVID-19 list this week. With both Fields and Dalton out, Ryan Willis was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster in order to back up Foles. The Bears offense becomes even more unattractive with Fields out and Foles under center. Foles will be playing for the first time this season, and although the Seahawks defense allows the most passing yards per game (273.9), he'll only be a desperation, low-end QB2 play in superflex leagues.

Dec 24 2:50pm ET

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that quarterback Nick Foles will start on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, and it will be a game-time decision as to whether rookie Justin Fields (ankle) will serve as Foles' backup in Week 16. The writing was on the wall for Fields to potentially miss this week's game after he was downgraded to no practice on Thursday. Fantasy managers that have been running with the dual-threat 22-year-old QB will need to find another option this weekend. It continues an up-and-down rookie season (mostly down) for the first-round selection. Foles hasn't played at all this year and hasn't started a game since 2020, going 202-for-312 for 1,852 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions in nine games (seven starts). Seattle's defense allows the most passing yards per game (273.9), but Foles will merely be a desperation QB2 in superflex leagues in Chicago's ugly offense.

Dec 23 8:10pm ET

Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields (ankle) missed practice on Thursday after he was a limited participant on Wednesday. Mid-week downgrades are usually never a positive sign, but the Bears could also just be resting the 22-year-old rookie in advance of their Week 16 date with the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday. Andy Dalton (groin, hand) is back from the COVID-19 list and practicing in full, so if Fields' injury keeps him from playing this weekend, the Red Rifle would likely return to a starting role under center instead of Nick Foles. Friday will give us a better idea of whether Fields is actually in danger of missing Week 16. Seattle's defense has allowed the most passing yards per game (273.9) this year, but Fields has been too inconsistent this year to be anything more than a midrange QB2 option in fantasy.
