Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears
Andy Dalton started Week 1 for the Bears against the Los Angeles Rams, and he’ll be the starting quarterback until further notice per head coach Matt Nagy. Dalton was not the reason the Bears lost the season opener.
But logic says Dalton’s hold on the starting gig won’t last. In any case, whoever Chicago’s quarterback is gets a nice matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Field saw some action against the Rams and ran for a touchdown, but it could still be several weeks before he becomes the starter (in a worst-case scenario). The upside is too immense to ignore though, and the rookie out of Ohio State should be owned in any league where it’s viable to roster more than one quarterback heading toward Week 2.
