1. Offensive Line
3. Wide Receiver
No quarterback in the NFL was sacked more than Justin Fields despite the fact he dropped back to pass the 19th most times. His league-high scramble rate and time to throw are clear signs this front office needs to put most of their resources into building the league-worst passing game up from the bottom.

Depth Chart Fantasy Impact
The Bears went quantity over quality at WR this offseason. After losing WR Allen Robinson to the Rams in free agency, Chicago signed WRs Byron Pringle, Equanimeous St. Brown and Dante Pettis. Those guys have combined for exactly 0 seasons of 600+ receiving yards. The Bears also passed on WR with their first 2 draft picks this spring before adding Tennessee’s Velus Jones in Round 3. He spent 6 seasons in college but never topped 807 receiving yards.
It’s a concern for QB Justin Fields, who will open the 2022 campaign under center after sitting behind QB Andy Dalton to begin his rookie season.
WR Darnell Mooney and TE Cole Kmet return as the 2 best bets for targets in Chicago. Mooney went for 1,055 yards last year – his 2nd NFL season. Kmet racked up 60 catches and 612 yards in 2021 but somehow didn’t find the end zone.
The top of the RB depth chart returns from last year: David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert. 6th-round rookie Trestan Ebner is 3rd on the depth chart and could see some action on passing downs.
