As the summer months inch closer, so too does fantasy football draft season. It’s the second-best draft season of the calendar, behind only the NFL Draft. And with the higher temperatures and long weekends at the beach come rankings, big boards, and draft strategy.
ESPN’s Field Yates published an updated 2023 fantasy football rankings (PPR format) this week, and Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields is beginning to enter the top-tier territory.
Fields is listed as QB6 and the No. 56 player overall.
For those new to fantasy football, quarterback is a position savvy owners will wait until the later rounds to select. But with the explosion of passing stats in recent years and the nuclear weapon that a running quarterback can be in your league, Fields’ climb up the rankings makes sense.
