Justin Fields Blames Coaching For Struggles?

Wednesday, September 20, 2:30 PM

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields came into the 2023 season as a breakout candidate, but his career passing struggles have continued through his first two games. The third-year signal-caller has completed just 40 passes for 427 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in losses to the Green Bay Packers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fields said he thinks he is playing too robotic and thinking too much. When asked what is causing him to think too much, he frankly said, "Coaching." This is not what you want to hear from a franchise quarterback, so things could be heading south quickly for Chicago and its offensive pieces. He continues to be a must-start quarterback in fantasy football thanks to his rushing upside, but that could change if he continues to fall flat.

Mac Jones Faces Tough Matchup In Week 3

Friday, September 22, 10:39 AM

New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones will have his work cut out for him against the New York Jets on Sunday afternoon. While these two teams are evenly matched, New York has a relentless defense featuring the likes of Sauce Gardner, Quinnen Williams, and others. The Patriots may choose to establish the running game early, though there's still room for Jones to have a big day. He's off to a solid start this season, totaling 547 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions through two games. He ranks as a mid-to-low QB2 in Week 3 of fantasy football.
