The Minnesota Vikings passer finished as the QB11 in total fantasy points and QB12 in points per game in 2021. And his new head coach comes from an offense that threw more aggressively on early downs under neutral game scripts; fifth-highest rate over the past two seasons. The Vikings ranked 27th in the category. Don't be surprised to see Captain Kirk flirt with top-10 numbers in 2022. He finished last year as PFF's fourth-highest graded quarterback.Justin Fields has fallen all the way to QB18 in early best ball ADP. Everyone is afraid of the situation in Chicago. But don't forget that a washed-up Cam Newton went from irrelevant to a top-12 ranked QB in one week last year because of rushing production. Fields finished as a top-12 fantasy quarterback in his last four full games in 2021, averaging 21.7 fantasy points per game. He also averaged 56 rushing yards per game over his last six. All in all, Fields averaged 35 rushing yards per game during his rookie season. The last three rookie QBs to do so? Newton, Josh Allen and Robert Griffin III. They all finished as top-12 fantasy quarterbacks in their second seasons, with the two former QBs finishing top-6. It won't take long for the narrative to spin on the talented Fields after he starts the season hot out of the gates. Five of the Bears' first six matchups are against secondaries that are the weak part of their respective defense, lost talent in free agency and/or are unproven. In Week 1, Fields takes on the 49ers. He rushed for over 100 yards against them last season.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Cousins problem is consistency, he had seven fantasy weeks where he was a Top-10 option and five weeks where he finished outside the Top-15. He's a QB2, because he cannot be trusted to bring it every week.Fields will be looking for a better second season with a new coaching staff, he has a long way to go as a passer, but his legs will keep him fantasy relevant as a QB2 with upside in 2022.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Kirk Cousins is the ugly duckling fantasy quarterback who found his way inside the top 12 producers (QB11, QB12) in back-to-back seasons. Cousins did so last season by directing a surprisingly up-tempo and more pass-heavy Vikings offense. Last year Minnesota was eighth and 12th in neutral pace and passing rate. With Kevin O'Connell at the controls this season, the passing rate could continue to be healthy (LAR, seventh), but the neutral pace could decline (LAR, 16th). If this happens and Adam Thielen takes a step back entering his age 32 season, Cousins will be rendered as a mid QB2.Justin Fields closed the season out with a promising stretch run as a top ten fantasy quarterback in each of his final four full starts. Fields showed growth in this quartet of games, completing 62.5% of his passes with 7.6 yards per attempt. The rushing is what we covet with the Windy City signal-caller, and we got a look at that as well, as he averaged 64.2 yards per game on the ground. Losing Allen Robinson hurts even more with the team replacing him with Byron Pringle, Equanimeous St. Brown, David Moore, and Velus Jones. The massive weekly upside is still in the cards for Fields with his playmaking ability, but he's tough to trust as anything more than a QB2 or matchup play, considering the cast of characters surrounding him.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
The walking definition of a league-average quarterback. Cousins' 2021 season was basically a carbon copy of his 2020 season, and he finished QB11 in fantasy scoring both years. It's possible he plays somewhere other than Minnesota in 2022, but a $35 million base salary will make him hard to move. For fantasy purposes, he's a safe, boring investment.Fields looked completely overmatched early in his rookie season but showed promise as the season wore on. He ran for 361 yards over his final seven starts, hinting at vast rushing potential. He's a work in progress as a passer, but he has a big arm and is capable of making all the throws. Alas, the Bears aren't making much of an effort to provide him with adequate pass-catching weaponry.

 5/2: Made 0 attempts to help him out in the draft. Even w/ Konami upside, Fields is set up to fail
