In this week's edition of the Two-Minute Drill, Yahoo Sports’ Andy Behrens talks about Fields’ monster performance in week 9 vs. the Dolphins, including why opposing defenses should fear the duality of the former Ohio State quarterback moving forward.
ANDY BEHRENS: I'm Andy Behrens. This is the Two-Minute Drill. Start the clock.
There's just a lot going on in the NFL right at this moment. But if you give a Bears fan, like myself, 120 seconds to discuss football in the aftermath of week 9, they are definitely going to give you an earful about Justin Fields.
PAUL MCCARTNEY: (SINGING) Strawberry fields forever.
ANDY BEHRENS: And that's what's about to happen. You guys know the details from Sunday's performance against Miami. Fields passed for three touchdowns, he ran for another while setting the NFL's single-game record for rushing yards by a quarterback. He scored over 40 fantasy points.
- What an athlete, a tremendous competitor.
ANDY BEHRENS: And he did it on a day that the wheels just absolutely came off for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Whew. Whew. Whew. I'm just here to tell you, Monday was a wonderful day to wake up as a Bears fan. But you didn't click this video to listen to me just being a meathead fan. You probably came for some level of fantasy insight.
- Everything you got! Everything you got! Everything you got!
ANDY BEHRENS: Well, here you go. Fields is now on pace to rush for over 1,100 yards on the season, which is just a stupid total.
- You're my boy, Blue!
ANDY BEHRENS: Both he and Lamar Jackson are probably going to finish top 10 in the league in rushing, which is crazy. Chicago all of a sudden averaging 31 points per game over the past three weeks after Luke Getsy reimagined this Bears offense. Just in case you're a fantasy manager wondering if perhaps you should sell high on Fields-- he's a buzzy quarterback-- I will just draw your attention to the Bears' rest-of-season schedule. Detroit this week.
Atlanta the next week.
Those are two of the league's most generous pass defenses. Chicago gets the Lions again in week 17 when fantasy championships are decided.
- Wah, wah, wee, wah. High five.
ANDY BEHRENS: The most important week of the year in the fantasy calendar, Fields gets the Lions. If anything right now, Justin Fields is a buy high. We have not seen the last of his QB1 weeks.
