Outlook: The previous regime in Chicago couldn't seem to get out of its own way. Ex-head man Matt Nagy failed to build anything on offense despite having two top-11 drafted signal callers to work with, and ex-GM Ryan Pace missed on free agents and draft picks way too often. Left in the wreckage of the past several seasons is Justin Fields, the 2nd year quarterback out of Ohio State who struggled mightily in his rookie year. With few weapons to throw to, and a scheme that almost ran counter to his strengths, Bears fans are left to wonder if his career can be salvaged.

After sitting Weeks 1 and 2, Fields got his first NFL start in Week 3 against the Browns, and put up one of the worst debuts in NFL history. He looked unprepared and outmatched, getting sacked 9 times, and completing only 30% of his passes for a sad 68 yards in a 26-6 loss. The utter and continued failure by the coaching staff to put Fields in advantageous positions was the true crime. Chicago ran only 24 run/pass option plays the entire year, while teams that had quarterbacks with similar athletic profiles ran upwards of 100. The numbers are equally embarrassing for play action passes. There were some highlights in the 2nd half of the season that flashed his potential, but Fields's rookie season was largely a wash. New Head Coach Matt Eberflus, and offensive coordinator Luke Getsy are now tasked with his development. Fields is going to have to find a way to grow on a depleted roster in transition. Speedster Darnell Mooney returns as the top receiver, but after that it's tight end Cole Kemet, a mish-mosh of fringe NFL-level talent, and 3rd round pick Velus Jones Jr.

As the unquestioned starter, and face of the franchise, I have to think Eberflus and Getsy will do everything in their power to help Fields succeed. I expect more pocket movement to help ease the pressure on the o-line and let the mobile QB be a threat with his legs. Without a lame duck coaching staff and front office, I think Chicago has a chance to settle down and be better. That doesn't mean they are going to be good, and Fields simply doesn't have the receivers or experience to be trusted in fantasy, but I can envision a world where he makes a spot start or two for a needy fantasy squad during the season and you wouldn't feel gross having to do it.

2022 (Projected)IND 353 535 3,854 24 12 25 74 1 302.1  

Outlook: These days, the conversation around Matt Ryan starts with his age (37), his declining skills, and his sagging stat line. But I don't think anyone can reasonably argue that Ryan was playing with anything resembling a stacked deck in Atlanta last year. He played behind an o-line that has allowed Ryan to be sacked 123 times over his last three seasons (42 in 2018, 41 in 2020, and 40 in 2021 - three of the four worst totals of his career). He was playing with a converted WR/KR at RB, and a receiving corps that lost Julio Jones to free agency and missed the real Calvin Ridley for most of the season. That left him throwing to a group led by an inconsistent Russell Gage, who is not a true WR1, and TE Kyle Pitts, a talented pass catcher, but a rookie nonetheless.

Despite the perception that he has lost a little something off his game, he still ranked in the top 10 among NFL quarterbacks in completions, and just outside the top 10 in attempts and passing yards. He gets banged for his lack of mobility, and yes he was 19th in touchdown passes and 18th in yards per attempt (just five spots behind Patrick Mahomes, incidentally), but given the supporting cast, I think some of that can be forgiven. I mean, at 36, do we really expect him to still carry a team? Tom Brady is the exception, not the rule!

So now he steps into a run-first offense under QB whisperer Frank Reich that will accentuate his abilities as a play-action passer, slow the pass rush behind an offensive line light years ahead of where the Falcons group was, and give him opportunities to throw to a true WR1 in Michael Pittman Jr. He'll have Parris Campbell in the slot, and exciting rookie Alec Pierce, as well as TE Mo Allie-Cox, who has flashed as a receiver who can challenge the seam, a bread and butter route for a guy like Ryan who has made a career throwing to guys like Pitts, Tony Gonzalez, and Austin Hooper among others. Oh yeah, and RB's Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines each had 40 receptions in 2021 (top 25 at their position in the NFL).

I realize I'm seriously in the minority here, but while most fantasy experts will call Ryan a low-end QB2, I think he could be looking at something closer to low-end QB1. He's in a great spot, in an offense that will play to his strengths, with a supporting cast that will allow him to do what he does without putting too much on his plate.


 Jared Goff, DET (Bye: 6)

2022 (Projected)DET 350 538 3,766 24 13 44 93 1 299.6  

Outlook: Stripped of the fancy scheme, talent and coaching in L.A., last season you saw the bare bones of what Goff is able to accomplish in the NFL. His limited skill set, and physical abilities weren't enough to make Detroit very competitive. Before a late season surge that saw the Lions win three out of the final four, Goff and the offense sputtered. A conservative game plan that was limited by receiving talent, and the former Rams' QB weak right arm, there simply wasn't much fantasy juice to squeeze from this offense.

While the team has infused the offensive side of the ball with additional talent via free agency (Chark, Reynolds) and the draft (Jameson Williams), the team will continue to mirror the hard-nosed, gravel-eating personality of head coach Dan Campbell. This means running the football, playing defense, and winning the game in the 4th quarter. Goff has endeared himself to the Motor City with the right attitude, and a measure of grit, but I just don't see him being able to will this team to the next level. He'll take the lumps as the franchise wisely builds a solid roster around their next quarterback of the future. A low end QB2 fantasy season is likely the best you can hope for.


 Carson Wentz, WAS (Bye: 14)

2022 (Projected)WAS 334 531 3,555 19 11 58 230 2 288.8  

Outlook: The Commanders moniker won't be the only new addition in Washington this season as the team will now have a new face behind center after they acquired veteran Carson Wentz via trade. Wentz brings a strong arm and leadership to a team desperately in need of those things, but he does come with a long injury history that makes him a risk for both the Commanders and fantasy owners alike.

Wentz's 2021 saw major improvements from a 2020 season that led to him being traded away from the Eagles. Was efficient in a Jonathan Taylor-focused Colts offense and stayed healthy, but was still shipped away as the Colts acquired Matt Ryan in the offseason.

While he's not a particularly exciting player, Wentz should be an improvement over the Taylor Heinecke-led offense that Washington suffered through in 2021. He doesn't have the wheels or high-end upside to realistically be a QB1, but Wentz should be a solid QB2 in two-QB and SuperFlex leagues and he's a player who you could pair with someone like Trey Lance to start the season before you switch over to the youngster with more upside.
