Justin Fields (hip) ruled out for Bears Week 18 versus Vikings

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields (hip) has been ruled out for Week 18 against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

What It Means:

Fields has a sore hip and will be replaced by Nathan Peterman in the Bears' final game of the season. He will finish the year with 1,143 rushing yards, coming up 64 yards short of Lamar Jackson's single-season record for a quarterback. The Vikings' defense has been fantasy-friendly this season, but the Bears' offense isn't an appealing option with Peterman under center.

Fields averaged 20.5 FanDuel points per game this season. Among the 26 quarterbacks with at least 350 drop backs this year, Fields is No. 22 in Total Net Expected Points added.
