With Andy Dalton being week-to-week with a bone bruise, Justin Fields is going to get the start here in week three against the Cleveland Browns. While Fields has shown flashes throughout the pre-season and when he stepped in last week in relief of Dalton, he's still looking like a rookie QB out there who's unsure of what exactly he's looking at. While the Bears could adapt the game plan to fit Fields' strengths and to help him not overthink things as much, it's a bit of a risk to start Fields right out of the gates in this matchup. Fields is a fine option to look at in Superflex leagues as your QB2 because of his rushing ability, but we shouldn't be overthinking this situation and running to plug him into our starting lineups as a streamer right away. Let's wait and see how he does and then re-evaluate after that point.
