1. Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears

40 career games. 40 touchdown passes, 30 interceptions, 38 fumbles, 10-28 record. Folks, what are we doing here? Justin Fields is not a franchise QB and there are still massive questions about his status as a franchise passer in the NFL. Fields has been in the NFL for three years and has not proved much at all. If a team still has questions as to whether or not they have their guy at QB, they don't have their guy.

No one can honestly say that Justin Fields is a solidified franchise QB. He's an inaccurate passer who fumbles way too much and is simply ineffective as a passer. Through three years, it's all but a lost cause for Fields, who was a high first-round pick back in the 2021 NFL Draft and is clearly a bust.
