Justin Fields is the #5 QB in FP’s Dynasty Trade Value Chart. I’v seen him at #4 on other sites.
Isn’t that overrated?
Yes, his rushing upside is second to none. But his passing in 2022 was still atrocious. The Bears ranked dead last in all relevant passing categories, setting 5-year league-wide lows in several of them.
I don’t want to make the same mistake with Fields as I did with Jalen Hurts, whom I wrote off too early. Maybe Fields (and the Bears in general) will get better with an improved receiving corps. But so far, all we know for sure about Fields are his rushing abilities.
And rushing QBs are injury prone and usually won’t last long.
That’s why I wonder if #4 or #5 may not be a bit too high for Fields, at least in dynasty.
