Chicago Bears and fantasy football fans had high hopes and anticipation for Justin Fields this season, especially after the trade for D.J. Moore. However, as we are embarking on the 2023 season, it’s apparent that the hype train has already been derailed. After just two weeks, Justin Fields fantasy football owners know the Chicago quarterback is far from a must-start.
Justin Fields’ Fantasy Football Outlook Week 3
Justin Fields has had his ups and downs this season. He has thrown for two touchdowns in both games, but unfortunately, one of those touchdowns was to the defense. With Fields averaging around 15 fantasy points per game, he is currently ranked as the QB21 in the first two games this season, which is far below expectations. The path ahead is not looking any smoother for Fields, as he faces the Chiefs in Week 3.
The Chiefs have not allowed a fantasy quarterback to score more than 14 fantasy points this season, and that’s impressive considering the defense has not logged an interception this year. Additionally, the Chiefs have not permitted a quarterback to accumulate over 255 scrimmage yards in six straight regular season games.
Considering Fields’ struggles and him facing the Chiefs’ seventh-best defense against fantasy quarterbacks, it doesn’t seem like a great week for Fields. Justin Fields fantasy football owners likely should look at streaming a quarterback this week.
