Justin Fields Traded To The Steelers

Saturday, March 16, 7:06 PM

The Chicago Bears traded quarterback Justin Fields to the Pittsburgh Steelers for a conditional 2025 sixth-round pick. Based on playing time, the sixth-round pick can become a fourth-round selection. With Fields shipped to Pittsburgh, the Bears are set to select USC quarterback Caleb Williams with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. It becomes an interesting situation in Pittsburgh with Fields joining Russell Wilson, who signed a one-year deal with the Steelers this offseason. The 25-year-old threw for 2,562 yards and a 16:9 TD: INT ratio while rushing for 657 yards and four scores over 13 games for the Bears in 2023. The Steelers are down to Wilson and Fields on the quarterback depth chart after trading Kenny Pickett to the Eagles and Mason Rudolph signing with the Titans via free agency. Whoever wins Pittsburgh's quarterback battle between Fields and Wilson is a serviceable QB2 in superflex leagues, with Fields having a higher ceiling between the two signal callers.

Seahawks Believe Sam Howell Can Be A Full-Time Starter

Tuesday, March 26, 4:11 PM

The Seattle Seahawks traded for former Washington Commanders quarterback Sam Howell on March 14. Although the franchise has already declared Geno Smith as the starter in 2024, general manager John Schneider said he "absolutely" believes Howell can be a full-time starter again in the future. Howell started 17 games for Washington last season, throwing for 3,946 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 21 interceptions. He flashed upside and mobility, but the turnover woes proved to mark the end of his short tenure with the Commanders. With Smith turning 34 next season, Seattle will likely have to eye his replacement in the near future. It's not necessarily going to be Howell, but it sounds like the Seahawks are keeping the light on for him moving forward. The North Carolina product doesn't have immediate fantasy value, but he might be worth stashing in Superflex and two-QB dynasty leagues.
