Fields leading the NFL in what are often called “chunk” or “explosive” plays, plays that go for 20 or more yards, both in completions and touchdowns.
This is proof of Fields maturing as a QB. Yes, he is an incredible athlete, but the quarterback is designed to throw the ball. Fields learning to trust his arm is a great thing to see for the Bears future.
Fields also boasts a 96.6 passer rating on passes of 20 yards or more as seen above. This is approaching elite status.
Aaron Rodgers is currently the NFL’s all time passer rating leader with a career 104.93 passer rating. Fields is getting close to elite on his deep ball, if the rest of his game can compliment that, the league should be concerned.
