Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears
Fields was efficient through the air (17-for-23 for 151 yards and two touchdowns) and productive again on the ground (eight carries for 60 yards and a touchdown) against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. He has rushed for a touchdown in back-to-back games, with at least 60 rushing yards in three straight. He has posted over 19 fantasy points (Yahoo! scoring) in three straight games as well.
Fields is in great position to keep his recent run going, with the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons on the schedule from Week 9-Week 11. All three entered Week 8 in the bottom five of the league against quarterbacks (Yahoo! scoring). Nothing that happened Sunday will change those standings much, if at all.
Fields’ rushing production raises his fantasy baseline, and whatever notable he might do through the air pushes his ceiling up. He’s a top-line streaming option for the next three weeks, and probably beyond, as long as his roster percentage qualifies him.
