Justin Fields expected to start Week 10 vs The Lions

Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields, who had been sidelined for over a month with a dislocated thumb, is making significant progress, as noted by head coach Matt Eberflus. There are encouraging signs that he will start this Sunday against the Detroit Lions. The key factor in his return was his grip strength, and Fields was on the verge of reaching the necessary level before the Thursday night game. These updates are sourced from ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

 

The Bears are set to face the Lions in Detroit this Sunday at 1 pm EST. This marks Fields’ first game back since Week 6 against Minnesota. During Weeks 4 and 5, Fields performed impressively, ranking as QB3 and QB1 for Fantasy, respectively. Notably, this week will see him supported by his strongest offensive line of the year. His arsenal includes WR DJ Moore, TE Cole Kmet, RBs D’Onta Foreman, and rookie Roschon Johnson, with the potential return of Khalil Herbert from IR.

 

The return of Justin Fields, the former first-round pick of the Bears, holds significance not just for Fantasy teams but also for the future of the Chicago franchise. Currently holding the 1st and 5th overall picks in the NFL Draft (subject to change), these selections are pivotal building blocks for the team’s potential ascent from the NFC cellar. Fields has the opportunity to prove himself as the QB1 or demonstrate value to another team in the coming weeks. Excitement surrounds Fields’ return to the gridiron, anticipating its impact not only in Fantasy but also on the potential future of the NFL landscape.
