Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

When talking about the youth and potential among NFC North quarterbacks, Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears will definitely divide many fans as to whether they believe he can be a great NFL quarterback or not.

Fields is entering his third year in the NFL and has started 25 games so far. In those games, he has thrown for over 200 yards only six times but has showcased the ability to make plays with his legs when the passing game breaks down.

Throwing for 2,242 yards with 17 touchdowns and 11 interceptions isn’t impressive, but he added 1,143 rushing yards and found the end zone eight times as a runner, leading the Bears in both those statistics.

If Fields can become more of a passer with help from new receiver D.J. Moore, he could be a star in the league. However, running quarterbacks take a lot of wear and tear over a season and he shouldn’t have to subject himself to that again.
