Yahoo Sports' Matt Harmon and Dalton Del Don talk about how the Chicago quarterback has shot up in the fantasy football rankings this season.

MATT HARMON: Justin Fields is like starting to show some life, man. He had never finished higher as the QB23 in weekly scoring in the first four weeks. Week five, QB12. Week six, QB9. Week seven, QB5. Week eight, QB5.

He has certainly turned this season around, mostly because of the rushing. But now he gets himself a guy in Chase Claypool that I have mixed feelings about but certainly can step into a wide-open receiver depth chart there.

DALTON DEL DON: Yeah, Fields has been the QB6 over the last month. Even the passing has improved a little. They're running more play action. I kind of like Mooney as a sneaky DFS play this week against a pass-funnel Miami defense. We'll see the weather there.

Yeah, I mean, Justin Fields I'm going to treat as a top-10 fantasy QB moving forward. I just think he's going to improve as a passer, and the rushing stats are there. So, yeah, I mean, it's-- we saw it dating back to that New England game when they had 10 days to prepare. And I was so impressed at Dallas with the pressure rate issues there. So I'm in on Justin Fields from a fantasy commodity moving forward.

And another interesting note, the Bears defense ranks 30th in DVOA, [INAUDIBLE] DVOA week on the road, and fifth at home. Fifth at home. So big, drastic difference. But they're trading away all their players, so I think there should be some points scored this week, barring weather. But it's worth noting just how much better this defense has performed at home. And this is an offense ascending.
