Fearless Forecast: 3440 PASS YDS, 21 PASS TD, 710 RUSH YDS, 5 RUSH TD, 14 INT
Projected Rank: 21
ANDY BEHRENS: We caught glimpses of a pretty fun fantasy quarterback with Justin Fields last season, particularly in the Niners and the Steelers games. We saw all the traits that we needed to see-- the big arm, the touch throws, the unique rushing ability.
Fields also had a coaching staff that didn't necessarily tailor the offense to him in any discernible way. And he was working behind a brutal offensive line, granted his receiving corps is a mess this year. It's full of bad ideas. I can't defend it.
Still, the guy rushed for 420 yards last year despite only making 10 starts. There's a path for him to be something like the 2021 version of Jalen Hurts. I'm going to forecast 3,440 passing yards, 21 passing scores. I'm also going to give him 710 rushing yards with five rushing touchdowns.
