Dynasty League Advice: What to do with Justin Fields?

The Chicago Bears QB will be one of the most talked-about players this offseason.

If you are in a dynasty league and you have Justin Fields on your roster, get ready for an interesting offseason.

The Chicago Bears are going to have the No. 1 overall pick in the 2024 draft as a result of the terrible season put forth by the Carolina Panthers, who traded their No.1 pick in this draft (along with last year's first and wide receiver D.J. Moore) in order to get the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 draft, eventually selecting Bryce Young.

The Bears suddenly have a massive decision on their hands. Do they move on from Fields and use the pick to select Caleb Williams, long considered a can't-miss prospect? Or do they trade the No. 1 overall pick again in order to get some more weapons for Fields?

That intrigue is going to drive other managers in your league to you with trade offers, gambling on the potential upside of Fields. Now, regardless of what you think of Fields as a quarterback (I think he's far too hated on), it's hard to say that he's not a strong asset in fantasy football.

So far this season, Fields has passed for over 2,400 yards with 16 touchdowns while also rushing for 630 yards and four more scores. He's done that while missing four games, so those stats would look even better if not for an injured finger earlier this season.

Fields is a fantasy asset and you will be able to cash in if you decide to move him this offseason. But don't do it for pennies on the dollar. I feel that if you hang onto Fields, regardless of what the Bears do, he is going to be in a good situation in 2024. So if another owner is to pry him away from you, make sure to get multiple premium assets (two first-round picks or a first-round pick and a star player, at the bare minimum).

The suggestion of Fantasy CPR would be to hold Fields but in a trade scenario, you must get a fellow manager to severely overpay.
