Justin Fields – 2021 Stat Projections

Here comes Justin Fields to the rescue. Fields is obviously going to have his share of struggles as a rookie, but I have faith in the prospect I had ranked second among the quarterbacks and the third-best prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft overall. Justin Fields will help the Bears win eight games and the team will finish with a 10-7 record on the year.

Attempts: 292
Completions: 456
Passing Yards: 3,185
Passing TDs: 26
Interceptions: 11
Rushing Attempts: 72
Rushing Yards: 458
Rushing TDs: 3

If you look at Justin Fields’ numbers, they are not elite at all. I do not believe Fields will come in and set the league on fire in his first season. What I expect is to see him thrive enough and show enough flashes that this team will finally have a top-15 offense under Matt Nagy. With him helping the offense make a shift into relevancy, the problem is that the defense will struggle just enough to keep this team from becoming a Super Bowl contender.

Next. 3 trades that could affect the NFC North. dark

In all honesty, I see the team pushing that mediocrity button again in regards to their season record, but that could lead to another playoff appearance, which will be great for a rookie to experience and should lead to hopefully sustained success throughout Justin Fields’ career with the Chicago Bears.

You might notice Nick Foles is not mentioned. That’s because I believe he either gets traded or never sees the field (barring an injury) in 2021.
