2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
The previous regime in Chicago couldn't seem to get out of its own way. Ex-head man Matt Nagy failed to build anything on offense despite having two top-11 drafted signal callers to work with, and ex-GM Ryan Pace missed on free agents and draft picks way too often. Left in the wreckage of the past several seasons is Justin Fields, the 2nd year quarterback out of Ohio State who struggled mightily in his rookie year. With few weapons to throw to, and a scheme that almost ran counter to his strengths, Bears fans are left to wonder if his career can be salvaged.

After sitting Weeks 1 and 2, Fields got his first NFL start in Week 3 against the Browns, and put up one of the worst debuts in NFL history. He looked unprepared and outmatched, getting sacked 9 times, and completing only 30% of his passes for a sad 68 yards in a 26-6 loss. The utter and continued failure by the coaching staff to put Fields in advantageous positions was the true crime. Chicago ran only 24 run/pass option plays the entire year, while teams that had quarterbacks with similar athletic profiles ran upwards of 100. The numbers are equally embarrassing for play action passes. There were some highlights in the 2nd half of the season that flashed his potential, but Fields's rookie season was largely a wash. New Head Coach Matt Eberflus, and offensive coordinator Luke Getsy are now tasked with his development. Fields is going to have to find a way to grow on a depleted roster in transition. Speedster Darnell Mooney returns as the top receiver, but after that it's tight end Cole Kemet, a mish-mosh of fringe NFL-level talent, and 3rd round pick Velus Jones Jr.

As the unquestioned starter, and face of the franchise, I have to think Eberflus and Getsy will do everything in their power to help Fields succeed. I expect more pocket movement to help ease the pressure on the o-line and let the mobile QB be a threat with his legs. Without a lame duck coaching staff and front office, I think Chicago has a chance to settle down and be better. That doesn't mean they are going to be good, and Fields simply doesn't have the receivers or experience to be trusted in fantasy, but I can envision a world where he makes a spot start or two for a needy fantasy squad during the season and you wouldn't feel gross having to do it.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Justin Fields a gametime decision
Shoulder injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 25, 2:49 pm

Chicgao Bears
Bears are listing QB Justin Fields (separated shoulder) as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The tone around Fields seems like he's on the wrong side of questionable this week. Head coach Matt Eberflus said Fields would need to be cleared further by the medical staff in order to play. If Fields sits, then Trevor Siemian would get the start.


Justin Fields' status in limbo
Suffered left shoulder injury in Week 11
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 21, 5:30 pm

Chicgao Bears
Bears coach Matt Eberflus really doing the "competitive advantage" floor routine here on Justin Fields' injury status. He calls Fields "day to day" but also says he can't rule out that Fields has suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. So, yeah. (Chicago Tribune - Dan Wiederer)

FFToday's Take: As Wiederer states, the coach is really doing his best to gain a "competitive advantage" with his comments. As usual, the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. Fields may be in doubt for Week 12 against the Jets and could sit against the Packers in Week 13 if the team's doctors feel as though it would be best if Fields rests through the team's Week 14 bye. However, it is all speculation at this point. Trevor Siemian is the backup and not worth starting outside of maybe some deep two-QB or superflex leagues if Fields misses time.


Steelers sending Chase Claypool to the Bears
Steelers receive a 2023 second-round pick
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Nov 1, 12:34 pm

Chicgao Bears
The #Bears are trading a 2023 second-round pick to the #Steelers for WR Chase Claypool, as @FieldYates said. A big move for Chicago to help Justin Fields. (Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Bears have one of the thinnest wide receiver rooms in the league. That will get a boost with Claypool in the mix who will be in the starting lineup as soon as he's up to speed with the offense. The Bears' low passing volume is a concern, but Claypool was stuck behind Diontae Johnson and George Pickens in Pittsburgh. This move should give Pickens more opportunities the rest of the season.
