Week 1 is in the books, and hopefully you started off your season with a W! I was lucky enough to start my season with a win in all three of my fantasy leagues (thank you, Saquon Barkley). If you found yourself on the opposite side of the spectrum, let’s get you on the board […]
The Chicago Bears had a hard-fought win in the rain last week, but their key players didn’t produce much in terms of fantasy scoring.
Josh Fewster breaks down what to do with Justin Fields, David Montgomery, Darnell Mooney and other Chicago players on your fantasy rosters, stressing the need for patience before cutting Bears from your roster after just one game. Those players have a chance to bounce back this week against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night.
Justin Fields is as confident as he has ever been right now.
His offensive coordinator Luke Getsy worked for me at Pitt in 2010. One thing I will tell you is this, based on having a defensive head coach and the offensive staff they have in place, they are going to run the football.
Confidence is Key
For Justin Fields being confident, it revolves around what they scheming for him. What I saw in practice was quarterback movement, play action and high percentage throws. I’d put that in the terms “quarterback friendly.” How do you get a quarterback confident? You do things he can have success with, and that is what I saw at practice.
I think this is going to be the best thing that has happened to Justin Fields. This isn’t going to be “get five out as quick as you can” and figure who is open on the move. No, I think this is going to be a lot of high-percentage throws. They’re going to utilize his athletic ability with the run-pass option, and he’ll extend plays. He’s already proven that.
He’s confident, and he’s kind of becoming a leader. Nathan Peterman and Trevor Siemian have been with different clubs throughout their careers. Just reading and hearing and seeing him every day, he’s got a lot of support from a lot of the veteran guys already just a couple of weeks into training camp.
Charles Brensinger worked in the NFL in various Personnel Department roles for nearly a decade. Most recently, he served as a Pro Scout for the Detroit Lions from 2016-2020. If you’ve ever played or worked in football, you’ve probably been introduced to the phrase “the more you can do.” “The more you can do” essentially […]

Twelve weeks of the 2021 NFL season has taught us to expect the unexpected. Don’t be surprised if your first-round pick puts up 6 points, or if he scores 5 touchdowns. There are no givens this season which is why it’s so hard to maintain a consistently successful fantasy team. Even though this year has […]
Justin Fields made his fourth start of the season this past weekend, a loss to Green Bay that dropped him and the Bears to 2-2 since he took over for Andy Dalton. After taking an in-depth look at his first start against the Browns, we decided to check his progress with a look into his […]

With Week 4 of the 2021 NFL season in the books, the truly elite fantasy football teams continue to separate themselves as many squads are falling victim to injuries and under-performances. For dynasty owners, manning the waiver wire and looking for opportunities to acquire talent that can help in 2021 and beyond is a major […]
