Trending toward Week 3 start
Fields appears in line to make his first NFL start Sunday in Cleveland with No. 1 quarterback Andy Dalton considered week-to-week with a knee injury, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The rookie first-round pick came on in relief of an injured Dalton in the Bears' 20-17 win over the Bengals this past weekend, taking 41 snaps in total and completing six of 13 pass attempts for 60 yards and an interception while rushing 10 times for 31 yards and fumbling once. Though he didn't have an especially productive showing in extended action after he scored on a run in the season-opening loss to the Rams, Fields could quickly emerge as a startable fantasy option thanks to his game-breaking rushing ability. For what it's worth, head coach Matt Nagy said Monday that Dalton -- when healthy -- remains the Bears' starting quarterback, but that could change if Fields delivers an impressive outing in place of the veteran.
