Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy announced that quarterback Andy Dalton will start on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings in the Week 18 regular season finale. Rookie Justin Fields was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list this week, and it was expected all along that Dalton would make the start if Fields wasn't cleared from the league's protocols. The 34-year-old Red Rifle has a good matchup against the Vikings, who have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points per game to QBs this year, but Dalton has been extremely mediocre in his last three starts. In his last three starts against the Lions, Cardinals and Giants, he's gone 68-for-115 for 719 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions. You can find better QB2 options.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton completed 18-of-35 passes for 174 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the team's 29-3 win over the Giants. The Bears defense created turnovers on the Giants first two offensive possessions, setting up some easy scores early for the Bears. Playing with a huge lead, Dalton merely needed to manage the game the rest of the way and make some throws when needed to. Dalton is not a fantasy option heading into the final week of the season plus rookie quarterback Justin Fields' (ankle) health will need to be monitored next week before the Bears officially name their starter.
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy confirmed on Friday that quarterback Andy Dalton will start in Week 17 against the New York Giants. With rookie Justin Fields (ankle) listed as questionable, Nick Foles, who started and got the win over the Seattle Seahawks last week, will be Dalton's backup. The Bears want Fields fully healthy before he returns to the field, which could come in a meaningless Week 18 game. Dalton has been predictably mediocre in four starts for the Bears this year, and he's thrown six touchdowns and six interceptions with an ugly 38.1 QBR in 153 passing attempts. Even against a very beatable Giants defense, the Red Rifle will be a low-end QB2 for those in superflex leagues in a low-volume Bears passing attack.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton has been named the starter for the team's Week 17 matchup against the Giants. Rookie quarterback Justin Fields (ankle) has been limited in practice the past two weeks and the Bears have decided to err on the side of caution with their future franchise passer. Dalton returns to the lineup after missing the past several games due to being placed on the COVID list and then battling a groin injury. The veteran passer will face a Giants defense that is allowing the 17th fewest fantasy points to opposing passers. Dalton is not worth a fantasy start but his presence on the field should stabilize the value for David Montgomery, Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet for the final week of the fantasy season.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (groin) has been ruled out for the Week 16 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Matt Nagy announced on Friday that Nick Foles will get the start under center, and rookie Justin Fields (ankle) is questionable to be the backup on Sunday. Dalton just returned from the COVID-19 list, but he won't be available for the Bears this weekend. If Fields is unable to serve as the backup to Foles against the Seahawks, the Bears will likely elevate Ryan Willis from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's game. Chicago's lackluster offense gets even worse in Week 16, and the Seahawks defense could be attractive as a deep-league streamer with Fields no longer starting.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (groin, hand) is off the COVID-19 list and returned to a full practice on Thursday. Dalton has been dealing with a small fracture in his left, non-throwing hand, but he looks to be good to go entering Week 16 against the Seattle Seahawks. Rookie quarterback Justin Fields is dealing with an ankle injury and was downgraded to a DNP on Thursday, so there's a chance that he won't be available this weekend. It's unclear if the Bears would go with Dalton or Nick Foles under center if Fields' injury is serious enough to keep him from playing, but either way, fantasy managers shouldn't be very interested in Chicago's backup situation, even against a Seahawks secondary that continues to get shredded through the air in 2021.
The Chicago Bears placed quarterback Andy Dalton on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday. Dalton was inactive due to a hand injury in the Week 14 loss to the Green Bay Packers, and now he's unlikely to be available again unless he tests negative before the Monday night game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 15. The 34-year-old Red Rifle was predictably mediocre under center as he filled in for rookie Justin Fields in Weeks 12 and 13. Nick Foles is likely to be Fields' backup on Monday night unless Dalton clears the COVID protocols this weekend. Even if he does, his hand injury could prevent him from serving as the clipboard holder on the sidelines.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (hand) is inactive for the AFC North battle against Green Bay. The veteran wasn't expected to suit up all along, and even if he did, he would have been relegated to a backup role behind rookie Justin Fields. Nonetheless, Nick Folesnow will take over for Dalton, although he doesn't have any value for fantasy managers unless Fields is off the field for some reason.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (hand) is expected to be inactive on Sunday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Originally set to serve as Justin Fields' backup, Dalton will now find himself in street clothes for this week's primetime clash against the Packers. Nick Foles will serve as the backup. In terms of Dalton's injury, the expectation is that he will return in one week after a broken bone in the top of his hand heals. The veteran signal-caller won't require surgery.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (hand) didn't practice on Friday and is doubtful for the NFC North meeting versus the Packers. The veteran hasn't done anything all week, so the recent update shouldn't come as a surprise by any means. Nonetheless, Nick Foles appears to be on tap to backup Justin Fields (ribs) in Week 14, although neither should be considered a viable fantasy option in any format, especially with a tough matchup on the road in Green Bay.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (hand) and wide receiver Marquise Goodwin (foot) both missed practice on Thursday. Dalton has missed both practices this week, so Nick Foles could be in line to back up rookie Justin Fields when he returns from fractured ribs to face the division-rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday night. Goodwin was limited on Wednesday, so this is a downgrade for him. Goodwin should be on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues, as he hasn't done much in this low-volume passing attack in 11 games, catching 16 of 33 targets for 277 yards and one touchdown. With Allen Robinson (hamstring) likely to return from a three-game absence, Goodwin will go back to the No. 3 receiver for this weak Bears offense.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (hand) missed practice on Wednesday with an injured left hand. It was announced earlier on Wednesday that rookie Justin Fields (ribs) has been cleared from his fractured ribs and will start on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers. The Red Rifle filled in for the injured Fields the previous two weeks and was his usual mediocre self, going 50-for-80 for 546 yards, three touchdowns and five interceptions. Barring another injury, Fields should start the remaining games for the Bears to close out his rookie season. If Dalton's hand injury prevents him from being active Sunday night, Nick Foles would back up Fields.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton completed 26-of-41 passes for 229 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions in the team's 33-22 loss to the Cardinals in Week 13. Turnovers doomed Dalton from the start, as he threw an interception on the first drive of the game. The veteran's passes were tipped consistently at the line of scrimmage on a rain-soaked Sunday, and Dalton now has seven turnovers in five games played this season. The Bears season is up the track and Dalton could very well start once more next week against the Packers before relinquishing the job back to Justin Fields, who is currently nursing broken ribs.
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that quarterback Andy Dalton will start on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, with rookie first-rounder Justin Fields (ribs) sitting out his second straight game with fractured ribs. Nick Foles will serve as Dalton's backup in Week 13. It was assumed that Fields would return under center this weekend after fracturing his ribs in Week 11 and missing the Thanksgiving win over the Detroit Lions, but apparently the Bears want to play it safe and give him an extra week to rest. Fields was limited in practice this week, so he'll probably have a good shot at returning in Week 14. Dalton threw for over 300 yards against the Lions last Thursday with one touchdown and one interception, but he won't have much fantasy upside as a QB2 streamer against a Cardinals defense that is allowing the fourth-fewest passing yards per game (204). Dalton is likely to be without receivers Allen Robinson II (hamstring) and Marquise Goodwin (foot, ribs) for the second straight game as well.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton completed 24 of 39 passes for 317 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the team's 16-14 win over the Lions in Week 12. Dalton stepped in to start for the injured rookie Justin Fields (ribs) and delivered a competent, albeit mediocre, performance. The veteran passer moved the chains at times but struggled capitalizing on drives in the red zone, and his lone interception came in the end zone. Fields is dealing with fractured ribs, but there's a good chance he will be able to return in Week 13, which would send Dalton back to the bench.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton will officially make the start for the Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions on Thursday. Rookie first-rounder Justin Fields suffered bruised ribs in the Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens and will need more time to heal. Dalton replaced Fields on Sunday and immediately gave the offense a spark, going 11-for-23 for 201 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in less than a full half of work in the narrow loss. The 34-year-old veteran surely doesn't offer as much fantasy upside as Fields with his legs, but the Red Rifle could be a decent QB2 streamer in superflex leagues against a winless Lions team that is allowing 27.3 points per game, third-most in the NFL.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton is expected to make the start on Thursday against the Detroit Lions with rookie Justin Fields (ribs) dealing with a rib injury that he suffered in the Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, according to sources. Fields spent Monday undergoing more tests after X-rays were negative for fractured ribs, and the turnaround on a short week is too quick. Fields' injury doesn't seem too serious, so there's a chance he could be back in Week 13, but Dalton should be leading the offense in Week 12. The 34-year-old veteran threw for 201 yards and two touchdowns and nearly led the team to a win in relief. Although Fields is the future and has a much higher long-term ceiling because of his rushing ability, Dalton might make Chicago's pass-catchers more attractive in fantasy (mainly wide receiver Darnell Mooney). Dalton will be a nice QB2 streamer in superflex leagues this week against the winless Lions.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton finished with 201 yards and two touchdowns on 11-for-23 passing during the last-minute loss to the Ravens on Sunday. The veteran came in for relief after rookie Justin Fields (ribs) was ruled out for the remainder of the game in the third quarter. However, Fields likely wasn't starting in many fantasy leagues anyway based on his horrendous this season. Nonetheless, with a short turnaround before the Thanksgiving meeting against the Lions, there's a chance Dalton may be under center for Week 12. If that's the case, there is certainly some streaming appeal there for the favorable matchup against Detroit.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton completed 11-of-22 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears heartbreaking 16-13 loss to the Ravens in Week 11. Dalton came off the bench after rookie starter Justin Fields exited the game with a ribs injury. The veteran passer was able to hit on some huge plays, hitting Darnell Mooney on a screen pass for a 60-yard touchdown than connecting with Marquise Goodwin for a brief go-ahead 49-yard touchdown in the final two minutes of the game. Fields' status will have to be monitored in the coming days but Dalton could very well be under center Thanksgiving morning against the Lions.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (knee) practiced in full all week and was removed from the final Week 5 injury report against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Bears had been saying all along that Dalton would remain the starter once he was healthy, but that tune changed earlier this week when they announced that rookie Justin Fields would start this weekend against Las Vegas. Dalton will begin this Sunday's game as the backup, but he could be an option to take over mid-game if Fields struggles against a much-improved Raiders defense. Fields took nine sacks in a disastrous first NFL start in Week 3, but he looked better in the Week 4 win over the Detroit Lions. The 33-year-old Dalton would only be a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues if he regains the starting gig down the line.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (knee) has once again got the support of his head coach as the team's starting quarterback upon his return to the lineup. Justin Fields had a solid showing in Week 4, but it was still not enough to secure his role as the QB1 in Chicago. With this news, Allen Robinson II and Darnell Mooney can be downgraded in terms of fantasy value, as Dalton has not shown he can be relied upon to be an effective passer. Whenever Dalton returns to the lineup, he is no more than a QB2 in deeper leagues because of his limited ceiling in the Chicago offense. Robinson could post solid WR2 numbers, so he will be the only pass-catcher in the Chicago offense that is worth a spot in fantasy lineups on a weekly basis.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (knee) is inactive for the team's Week 4 contest against the Detroit Lions, with Justin Fields set to start and Nick Foles backing Fields up. Head coach Matt Nagy made a comment during the week that the starting role this week was a "game-time decision," though Nagy ended up making the decision on Saturday. That level of uncertainty means that this might not be Dalton's job once he's healthy, especially f Fields can show some talent against the Lions this week.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton (knee) is doubtful to suit up during the Week 4 matchup against the Detroit Lions. The veteran was limited during practice throughout the week as he continues to recover from a bone bruise in his knee. Nonetheless, there is a chance Dalton could return for the Week 5 showdown against the Raiders. However, Justin Fields has been named the starter against Detroit on Sunday, and depending on how well he plays, Dalton's services may not be needed against Las Vegas, regardless if he is healthy.
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that his decision on who will start at quarterback in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions will be a game-time decision on Sunday. Quarterback Andy Dalton (knee) was limited in practice this week and was listed as questionable on the final injury report. Rookie Justin Fields (thumb) practiced in full all week and wasn't on the final injury report. It basically all comes down to Dalton's health, as the Bears still view him as their starter when healthy, especially after Fields took nine sacks and looked, well, like a rookie in his first career start in the Week 3 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Third-stringer Nick Foles could also be an option if Dalton isn't ready and the Bears don't trust Fields after his performance last week. In any event, fantasy managers should stay far away from this situation in single-QB leagues.
Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton(knee) was limited in practice on Thursday for the second straight day. After one of the worst quarterback performances in recent memory by Dalton's backup, rookieJustin Fields, it appears that the Bears certainly favor the veteran over the rookie. Head coach Matt Nagy did not appear to adapt his offensive scheme to cater to Fields' skill set despite his elite mobility. For fantasy, Dalton should not be rostered in single-QB leagues, but if he does return as the starting quarterback, that immediately benefits the Bears ancillary pieces. Although the former Bengal is not ideal for fantasy teams, if Nagy remains unwilling to change his scheme, the Bears offense will operate better under Dalton than Fields.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
