Justin Fields has been arguably the most popular athlete in Chicago since he was selected with the 11th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and according to the latest Top 50 NFL Player Sales List from the NFLPA he’s also one of the most popular players in the entire league.
Here’s how the top 10 shaped up.
6) Justin Fields, Chicago Bears
Considering this ranking is for the period from March 1, 2021 through May 31, 2021, and Fields wasn’t even in the NFL until April 29, I’d say fans are extremely high on Fields’ prospects to be a damn good NFL player.
The Bears have another player that cracked their top 50, as Khalil Mack checked in at 45.
