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. Read Past Outlooks

Fields (ribs) hasn't thrown since sustaining cracked ribs during this past Sunday's loss to the Ravens, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Fields initially was believed to be dealing with bruised ribs, but a recent MRI revealed multiple small fractures. Andy Dalton started at quarterback during Thursday's win over the Lions, while Fields' status remains up in the air heading into Week 13. The rookie first-round pick's participation at practice next week should provide an idea of his availability heading into the matchup with the Cardinals on Sunday, Dec. 5. Bears coach Matt Nagy reiterated Friday that Fields will be the team's starting QB again once he's healthy, per Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic.
