Justin Fields Week 1 Outlook - 49ers at Steelers

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Sun, Sep 10th 2023, 12:05pm EDT

With some injuries hitting the Bears' offensive line during the preseason - no Teven Jenkins and Cody Whitehair moving from center to guard - expect the Packers to make life tough on the Bears offense and Justin Fields in Week 1. They finished 8th in pressure rate last season. Against starting Bears QB Justin Fields - who has a propensity to take sacks - Green Bay's defense has scored 9, 10 and 15 fantasy points in their three previous matchups versus Chicago under current defensive coordinator, Joe Barry. Fields was pressured on 40% of his dropbacks versus Green Bay in 2022, posting 0-3 TD-INT ratio. The Bears QB will likely be fine with his own rushing added to his fantasy profile, but I'd hardly say this is the spot or game where we see Fields' massive NFL leap as a passer.
