Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
The Bears HC Matt Nagy and GM Ryan Pace are both on the hot seat, so the odds of them letting their brand new possible superstar QB sit on the bench to save him for another regime is probably not going to happen. When Nagy designed an offense that highlighted the strengths of Mitch Trubisky, both he and the Bears had a good season. When he tried to fit Trubisky into an offense that didn't fit his skill set, he failed. I don't think he will make that mistake again. With a big body and 4.4 speed, Fields may struggle through the air at first but will dominate on the ground from the very start.Every year certain fantasy analysts will hype up the most mediocre QB in the game, and every time you are disappointed you fell in the trap. This year might be the worst trap of all. Now, he'll be playing behind an offensive line that lost three starters to cap woes including C Rodney Hudson. It's going to be a long year in Las Vegas and Derek Carr might not survive it.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
The Bears GM Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy are under pressure this year to perform. It shouldn't take long for Justin Fields to take over. I'm guessing week 5 or 6. They can't afford to have an inept offense anymore. The natives are getting restless in Chicago. Fields needs to get the ball out quicker. He needs to recognize blitzes better. Even with his good accuracy and mobility, that's asking a lot for a talented rookie.Carr has some weapons in Darren Waller and Henry Ruggs, but the offensive line lost some keys cogs this past offseason. Carr's lack of mobility caps his upside. The combination of those two could lead to a lot of sacks. He's okay, but I'm hoping for better at QB.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
The Bears moved up to draft Justin Fields when he fell in the draft, and he will see the field sooner than later for the Bears. Fields is an accurate passer with a strong arm and speed. He also doesn't shy away from the big stage and is entering a Bears offense with some weapons. The Bears have nowhere to go but up at the quarterback position. You'll hear the Dak Prescott comparisons, but he's quicker than Dak. Fields may even start Week 1 considering what the Bears gave up to get him, but he's more likely fantasy relevant in the latter part of the '21 season.Very quietly, Derek Carr finished as QB13 last season. This was due to him playing in all 16 games, which many QBs did not in 2020. Carr did throw for his 3rd straight 4k yard season, but I have significant concerns about the offensive line turnover for the Raiders. At 30, Derek Carr is a prototypical league-average quarterback, hence the 8-8 record of the Raiders. I would love him as my 3rd QB in Superflex, but you could do worse as your QB2. Although Carr did make some statistical strides, it's hard to get excited about him in fantasy terms.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 The article I write every year titled, "Boom, Bust, and Everything In Between," highlights the both the consistency a player offers, as well as his upside. Carr has no upside. Over the last two years under Jon Gruden, Carr has played 32 games. In those games, he's delivered QB1-type performances just 14 times (43.8 percent), and a "boom" performance just one time (3.1 percent). I'd rather take shots on the rookie quarterbacks who might not start out of the gate, as Carr certainly wouldn't be your QB1.

Day 1 ready, should immediately supplant Dalton and offer immense upside with his legs, the Konami Code 
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
I expect him to be the starter Day 1, so I don't expect him to fall outside of the top-20 QBs or so. Way up. Dalton off my list.
