Fields was born in Long Beach, California to Steve and Janice Fields, who played basketball in college at Miami University and Highland Community College respectively (Steve was later drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers). Fields's father is African-American, while his mother is Caucasian. Landry was one of three children and attended Ellwood P. Cubberley Elementary School and later Los Alamitos High School in Los Alamitos, California. Fields was a three-year letter-winner on the varsity basketball squad, which he captained during his junior and senior seasons. Though he was heavily recruited by Arizona coach Lute Olson and by Gonzaga University, Fields ultimately chose to play for Trent Johnson and Stanford, joining twin brothers Robin and Brook Lopez to create one of the top recruiting classes in the nation.
Fields played college basketball for Stanford University, and had immediate impact as a freshman, playing 14 minutes per game off the bench. Fields went into his senior year as one of the top returning players in the Pac-10.
Fields finished his senior season leading the Pac-10 in scoring and rebounding, despite playing primarily as a shooting guard and small forward. He was named to the All-Pac-10 first team. His average of 22 points per game was also good enough for eighth in the nation overall in scoring.
New York Knicks
Fields was drafted with the 39th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks. After a strong showing during summer league and preseason, he was named the starting shooting guard for the Knicks on opening night. On November 16, 2010, Fields set career highs in scoring (21) and rebounding (17) in a loss against the Denver Nuggets. On February 6, 2011 he set a new career high in scoring (25) in a win against the 76ers. 
Landry Fields won Rookie of the Month in the Eastern Conference for the months of November and December in 2010. Capping off a strong rookie year performance, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team.
Landry, along with fellow Knick Jeremy Lin, was selected to play for Team Shaq in the 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge. Both Lin and Fields eventually appeared on a YouTube video on Lin's YouTube Channel revealing their "secret handshake".
On July 11, 2012, Fields signed an offer sheet with the Toronto Raptors reportedly worth $20 million for three years. The Knicks chose to not match the offer and Fields officially joined the Raptors on July 14, 2012. Fields has been an asset off the bench defensively, but his impact on the Toronto Raptors has yet to be determined. Nerve Damage in the elbow of his shooting arm has deemed him ineffective during his time in Toronto but Fields remains confident in returning to his old self.

On March 20, 2011, the Andy and Landry show debuted. The show featured Fields and Andy Rautins exploring different areas of New York City. The first episode focused on them visiting the Shubert Theater, with cast members from Tony Award-winning Broadway musical "Memphis." In another episode, they went on a speed-dating event. After Rautins was waived by the team before the 2011–2012 season, the show was discontinued.
In July 2014, Fields married his girlfriend Elaine Alden, who is a model. The couple have a son, Jackson James Fields, who was born in 2013 who also appeared at their wedding.
