Future Outlook: Justin Fields Can Be a MVP Candidate in Chicago One Day
JUSTIN FIELDS CAN BE A MVP CANDIDATE ONE DAY
Justin Fields is not like any other recent Ohio State Quarterback (Cardale Jones, Dwayne Haskins, etc.) and has an abundance of reasons why he could become a future MVP candidate. Fields is one of those rare QB’s in the NFL that actually looks like he could be successful playing another position such as Tight End or even Safety, and that’s a testament to his combination of size, strength, and speed. Similar to Lamar Jackson, who won a MVP in large part due to his running ability, Fields could follow in those footsteps.
The Bears QB will rely heavily on his freakish athleticism which helps expand his game as a Dual Threat QB and only enhances his chances of bringing home that MVP award one day. Fields was tasked with making a lot of reads while he was at OSU and that’s why he will deeply benefit from Matt Nagy’s motion offense. Nagy’s “smoke in mirrors” scheme uses a lot of different methods to make defenders get lost in their reads and involves a lot of quick and more simple reads for the QB.
One of the biggest benefits for Justin Fields is he doesn’t really have a tough QB battle to win (unlike Trey Lance and Mac Jones), which will allow the young signal caller to grow significantly from the mistakes he’s destined to make as a rookie. Fields is also built to last in a rugged NFC north and is well prepared to play in “Frozen Tundras” and windy cities. While Fields was the fourth QB taken in the 2021 Draft, it’s very possible Fields will one day be a top-4 QB in the entire NFL as he emerges in future MVP conversations.
