Fields is still "supposed" to be the backup quarterback for the Bears, however, many fantasy and NFL analysts have Fields leaping over his counterpart, Andy Dalton, on the depth chart at some point this season. For this to come true Fields must stay healthy and this piece of news is a positive development on that front. Fields is a stash in redraft leagues as it stands today, but as the season unfolds he could quickly become a fantasy waiver target.
