Fantasy Football – Consistency Check-In – Week 7
Welcome to the Consistency Check-in! Each week Ron Rigney will highlight players at each position that either barely recorded a Clutch Game, or fell just short. Are they must adds, or must drops? Was it a fluke or is there consistency to be had? Come back here each week to find out! Follow Ron on Twitter @ronrigney
Justin Fields, QB – CHI
There’s not much to get excited about with the Bears’ passing game, but they have shown a bit of life over the past few weeks. Most importantly, they are giving their QB opportunities to pass the ball. Let me be the first to say I’m not excited about Fields as a passer just yet, but his rushing potential is intriguing. Over the next three weeks, the Bears face New England, Dallas, and Miami, which aren’t favorable passing matchups for one of the worst passing offenses in the league. However, all three are near the top of the league in rushing yards allowed to QB’s. Fields tallied a season-high 88 yards and a Clutch Game in Week 6, making it two straight. With sub-par QB play across the league as well as bye weeks, Fields is an intriguing option over the next few weeks.
