Justin Fields has no shot to start Week 1 for the Chicago Bears

According to Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy, there is “no possible scenario” in which Justin Fields starts for the team Week 1 (per Daniel Greenberg)

Fantasy Impact: Now I would assume that if presumed starter Andy Dalton got injured in camp, Fields would then get the starting nod. But it seems short of that (and we don’t wish for injuries on this site) the rookie will start the year on the bench. That doesn’t mean Fields can’t come in for the Bears in the middle of Week 1 and start every game from there on out. Honestly, I’m still putting my money on Fields playing far more games than Dalton in 2021.
