Article Summary:

Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

Overall pick: No. 11

Stats: 10 games played, 4 TDs, 8 INTs, 25.8 QBR

Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson’s assessment: The Bears’ initial plan to bring Fields along slowly was scuttled when veteran Andy Dalton got hurt in Week 2. First, Fields completed a beautiful 39-yard pass to No. 1 receiver Allen Robinson, then followed it up on the very next play with a 16-yard touchdown strike to Darnell Mooney. Earlier in the quarter, Fields fired a 28-yard missile to tight end Jimmy Graham; a throw coach Matt Nagy called “Elite.” The Bears eventually lost the game 29-27, but Fields had a night to remember. The more likely scenario is the Bears play out the string with Fields making modest improvements each week, although he’s currently nursing a rib injury that could keep him sidelined for at least the time being.
