Justin Fields hitting his layup passes.
It has been well-documented that Fields is a dynamic playmaker with his running ability. He must improve in the passing game if the Chicago Bears are ever going to be a contending team.
His arm strength is not the issue.
In-time and on-time passing, hitting his check down, getting the ball out of his hand quicker, and processing the field faster are the four areas he must get better at.
Fields completed three easy passes in the first preseason game with two going for touchdowns. Hopefully, seeing the talent upgraded around him helps Justin realize he does not need to see his receiver open before he rips a pass.
Fields has the most talent around him so far during his Chicago Bears career. Justin has D.J. Moore, Chase Claypool, Darnell Mooney, Cole Kmet, and Robert Tonyan at his disposal to throw to.
Khalil Herbert and D’Onta Foreman also provide some weaponry out of the backfield.
Now Fields can throw an anticipation pass and he has a good-to-great chance his receiver will be at that spot, unlike last season.
Since the offensive line will not be at full strength on Saturday, getting Fields to complete those easy receptions he passed up on last season is probably the best way to get him some work while avoiding putting him in danger.
