Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Dalton's job in Chicago is to step in as the starter until Fields is ready and simply keep the offense on track. In the first preseason game, we saw how quickly Dalton processes information and gets the ball out to his receivers. He might not push the ball deep downfield a ton or make splashy plays, but he's exactly what this offense has needed for so long that Trubisky or Foles simply couldn't provide. He'll be worth looking at as a streaming QB off of the waiver wire in plus matchups while he's the starter, but he shouldn't be drafted this year. We simply don't know how long he's going to be holding down this job before Fields is ready to take over. 
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
The Red Baron flies into Chicago. The Bears are hoping he provides some kind of aerial attack which has been MIA. that would give time for Justin Fields to learn the playbook. Dalton is a placeholder QB, but if things go south, don't be surprised if the Bears give him the hook quickly. GM Ryan Pace's and head coach Matt Nagy's jobs are on the line. If they're going down they'll go down with their QB savior- Justin Fields.
