The UF Team pick out an interesting market line involving Chicago Bears QB Justin Fields
If there’s one player that has broken fantasy football this season, it’s Justin Fields.
The dual-threat QB has torn up the league in recent weeks, particularly due to his rushing abilities as he has chalked up a whopping 746 rushing yards and six TDs on the ground.
However, that’s not what we’re interested in. We’re looking at him in the interception department.
While Fields is not the current leader in interceptions thrown this season, he looks good value to hit the top of the board by the end of the season.

STATS SO FAR
While Fields has been impressive on the ground, his passing stats have been average at times.
He has thrown for 1,489 yards in 10 games, recording 12 touchdowns passes and seven interceptions in the process.
Only five QBs in the NFL this season have thrown more INTs than Fields, while
One stat is a standout, however. Since the start of the 2021 season, Justin Fields holds the highest interceptions percentage among QBs that have played at least 10 games in that period.
The remainder of the 2022 schedule for the Bears is also worth taking note of.
This is where it gets interesting.
The Bears final seven games of the season is seriously tough in terms of the passing game. Chicago face four of the five defenses that have recorded the most interceptions so far this season.
The Buffalo Bills (13), Philadelphia Eagles (13), New York Jets (11) and the Minnesota Vikings (10) have all recorded at least 10 interceptions this season.
The Bears even face the likes of the Atlanta Falcons and the Green Bay Packers, who have made eight and seven interceptions respectively.
In fact, six of their last seven games are against defenses that are in the top half of the interceptions made table.
It is a known fact that Fields has shown signs of improvement in recent weeks, but the schedule is a concern for his passing game.
While he has only thrown one interceptions in his last three outings, the next few games could prove to be tough and he could well drum up his INT total in these matchups.
The price of +2000 for most interceptions thrown in 2022 looks great value when looking at the stats.
