With Justin Fields getting the starting nod against the Cleveland Browns in Week 3 due to Andy Dalton exiting the week prior, the Chicago Bears have added a new dimension to the team that’s lacked for some time now.

Wait, I can start a Chicago Bears quarterback? Yes, and his name is Justin Fields.

And because of that, starting a Chicago Bears quarterback won’t get the same laughs that it might have in the past.

Whether it be Andy Dalton, Mitchell Trubisky, Nick Foles, Mike Glennon, Jay Cutler, and so on, very seldomly would any of these guys be a good choice to start in fantasy at all, even if it’s just a super-flex position.

For those that might be less involved in fantasy football, super-flex leagues allow for starting lineups to have up to two quarterbacks. So, if someone’s team has Tom Brady and Justin Fields on the roster, both quarterbacks could be in the same starting lineup.

It’s a bit more hands-on in these leagues, but I’m a sucker for them.

Now, let me start by saying that starting Justin Fields is a risky choice, but it’s one that can be backed up by some evidence.

With all that said, I’m just jazzed that I can finally start a Chicago Bears quarterback and feel somewhat comfortable doing so.

Without further ado, what are these reasons that point to Justin Fields being a good choice to start in a super-flex fantasy league? Let’s start with the first reason.
