The Bears have settled on a backup quarterback for the start of the regular season.
The Bears opted for experience in the No. 2 role. The team released its depth chart for this week on Tuesday and it shows Nathan Peterman behind Josh Fields with Tyson Bagent in the No. 3 role.
As the story said, Bears head coach Matt Eberflus said last week that the team had not decided whether Peterman or undrafted rookie Bagent would back up Justin Fields against the Packers. Bagent played well in the preseason and the Bears cut both Peterman and P.J. Walker on their way to setting their first 53-man roster, but re-signed Peterman after making other roster moves.
BUF QB Nathan Peterman - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 10 at New York Jets
In his return as the starting quarterback, more of the same for Nathan Peterman. He did throw the ball 49 times (because they were playing from behind). He still only had 188 passing yards and threw three interceptions. He now had one touchdown throw and seven interceptions this season.
Peterman will be the starter against the Jets on Sunday. And we will see more bad quarterback play. Peterman is the lowest rated fantasy quarterback for Week 10 so don't even think of playing him.
