3. Justin Fields, Bears

Justin Fields finds himself out of last place and very close to overtaking the no. 2 spot on this list. After two excellent performances in a row, Fields looks like he's finding his way this season. Against the Washington Commanders on Thursday night, Fields went 15-of-29 for 282 yards, four touchdowns and zero interceptions.

It was his second-straight game with four passing touchdowns and he now finds himself 13th in the NFL in passing yards. That's not too bad for a running back, right? Speaking of running, Fields has just 191 rushing yards on the season, averaging just under 40 a game. That's not close to what we're used to seeing out of him, but the uptick in passing is a breath of fresh air.

For two games in a row, Fields has certainly looked as though he is playing more freely, which is something everybody wanted to see the Bears allow him to do after the first three weeks. He is finally letting it rip and throwing some dimes in the process.

The Bears have an opportunity to see Fields take another big step this weekend when they face a Minnesota Vikings defense giving up the 11th-most passing yards per game on the season. If he puts together a third-straight impressive game, Fields might just find himself moving up once again in these power rankings next week.
