    The Top QBs To Start in Week 1

    Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears

    Analysis by Kyle Soppe | A highlight 55-yard touchdown run is likely what you remember of Fields facing the Packers last season, and while that did happen, so did zero TDs and three interceptions on his 36 pass attempts.

    Of course, adding DJ Moore to the mix this offseason should help fix that, and the fantasy floor created by his ability to rack up at least 60 rush yards in nine of his past 10 games makes him a weekly lock.

    I’m projecting a low possession count in this game, and that has me steering away from Fields in DFS, but it’s highly unlikely you have a better option in redraft (and if you do, I have questions about your draft).

    Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Miami Dolphins

    On a per-play basis, the Dolphins were the best offense in the NFL last season during the 12 full games Tagovailoa played last season, and in a game that has had a projected total of around 50 for six weeks now — expect Miami to come out firing.

    Tagovailoa ranked inside the top 10 in both yards per completion and aDOT in play-action situations a season ago — upside that I’ll chase in a matchup against a run defense that was among the worst in every single metric in 2022.
