| Justin Fields expected to start Week 11|
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 15, 7:08 am
|Sources: #Bears QB Justin Fields, out the last month with a dislocated thumb, is expected to start Sunday vs the #Lions, assuming today’s practice goes well. The key has been regaining grip strength, and Fields was nearly there before TNF. With a solid practice, he will be. (Ian Rapoport on X)|
FFToday's Take: It sounds like Fields was close in Week 10 and without any setbacks in practice, will start against Detroit in Week 11. This will send Tyson Bagent to the bench and hopefully breathe some life into D.J. Moore who hasn't scored or topped 55 yards since Week 5.

Tyson Bagent gets another start

|Bears are listing QB Justin Fields as doubtful for Thursday night vs. Carolina. (Adam Schefter on X)|
FFToday's Take: Fields is dealing with a thumb injury and isn't able to grip the football well enough to play. The Bears will give Tyson Bagent another start. Bagent displayed some rushing ability (8-70-0) in his last start against the Saints which helped him finish as the QB6 on the week. The Panthers have given up the 3rd fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks.

Missed Week 7 with thumb injury

FFToday's Take: It would not be terribly surprising if Fields was sidelined in Week 9 as well, but it appears as if he is closer to returning than not at this point. Bagent handled himself nicely in his first NFL start in Week 7, playing error-free ball while completing 72.4% of his passes. The Chargers have underachieved yet again this year, but Bagent will likely need to do more to keep up with Justin Herbert & Co. in Week 8.

Dislocated thumb in Week 6 vs. Vikings
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 16, 5:25 pm
|Bears coach Matt Eberflus says QB Justin Fields is doubtful for this week with a dislocated thumb, but no overall timetable. "It's really going to come down to grip strength." (NFL Network - Ian Rapoport)|
FFToday's Take: Chicago's bye isn't until Week 13, so the Bears and fantasy managers alike will not get any break in his recovery timeline from that. Tyson Bagent came on in relief of Fields against Minnesota and didn't do much of note (10-of-14 for 83 yards and an interception) despite scoring the team's only touchdown on a short run midway through the fourth quarter. Bagent is mostly a pocket passer that won't provide much of a rushing threat, making the Raiders and Chargers good streaming DST options if Fields cannot play over the next two weeks.
