Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will try and bounce back from his worst game of the season when the team takes on the Packers in Week 15. Trubisky's three-interception performance came on the heels of a two-game absence after injuring his throwing shoulder against Minnesota. He will now try and right the ship against a Packers defense that is allowing the 12th fewest points to opposing quarterbacks this season. Green Bay's defense has allowed eight touchdown passes over their last four games but have done a solid job, in stretches, of limiting the opposition's passing yards. Trubisky has 24 total touchdowns, 2,579 passing yards and 386 rushing yards in a season that has been wildly inconsistent. Trubisky' fantasy ceiling is perhaps one of the highest in the entire league and now he has a shot at clinching division title against the Bears biggest rival. Trubisky will be a low-floor, high-ceiling fantasy selection for Week 15. Trubisky's potential makes him a lineup-worthy consideration during the fantasy playoffs.
5 days ago: Mitch Trubisky Must Improve Performance
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed only 16 of 30 passes for 110 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the Bears 15-6 win over the Rams. Trubisky has missed the last two games with a slightly separated shoulder and the rust certainly showed. He consistently was inconsistent in the passing game and a few balls sailed on him that led to interceptions. Per usual, however, Trubisky was able to use his legs to pick up 23 rushing yards and connected in the red zone for a touchdown pass to offensive lineman Bradley Sowell of all players. The Bears defense is elite but the offense, and the fantasy value of its weapons, is tethered to the success of Trubisky moving forward. Trubisky will have a more forgiving matchup next week against the Packers.
8 days ago: Mitch Trubisky Taken Off Final Injury Report
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) practiced in full all week and has been taken off the final injury report for Week 14 against the Rams. Trubisky will return on Sunday night after missing the last two games. This was the expectation all along, and Trubisky will have QB1 upside in a game that could force the Bears to pass often. Trubisky's rushing ability gives him a solid floor in what could be a high-scoring game at Soldier Field.
9 days ago: Buyer Beware For Mitch Trubisky In Week 14
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) appears ready to return to the field in Week 14 against the Rams. Trubisky has missed the last two games with the shoulder issue and now will go up against a Rams defense that is allowing the 11th most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. The Rams have allowed 14 touchdowns passes to quarterbacks over their last four games but Trubisky certainly could exhibit some rust. Trubisky has told beat reporters in Chicago in the past that his path to success on the football field involves constant reps on the practice field. Trubisky will certainly add to his fantasy totals with his legs but it is fair to question how effective and accurate he can be with his arm. Trubisky is a top-12 play in fantasy for Week 14 but could struggle to crack the top-8 among quarterbacks, making him a risky pick.
10 days ago: Mitch Trubisky Practicing In Full
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) practiced in full on Wednesday. Everything has been pointing to Trubisky returning to the starting gig after missing the last two games, and his full practice on Wednesday confirms it. Unless he suffers a setback to close out the week, Chase Daniel will go back to holding the clipboard in a big Sunday night game against the Rams. Trubisky will be a high-end QB2/low-end QB1 for a game that could require him to throw the ball often.
10 days ago: Bears Expect Mitch Trubisky To Play
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy expects quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) to play in a Week 14 showdown with the Rams on Sunday night. I feel strong that he will play, but Ive got to see more," Nagy said. Trubisky is expected to practice on Wednesday and he should start, barring a setback. The Rams defense has been upgraded with the return of cornerback Aqib Talib, but the Bears could need to pass often in this one, which would boost Trubisky's ceiling. He should be considered a high-end QB2 if he returns this week.
11 days ago: Mitch Trubisky Feeling Better
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) is feeling better this week, but head coach Matt Nagy won't say whether he expects Trubisky to return to a full practice this week ahead of an important Week 14 matchup with the Rams. Trubisky has missed the last two games with a right shoulder injury, but he resumed throwing last Friday and also did some on-field throwing on Sunday before the game. Barring a setback, it seems like Trubisky will return this Sunday to face the Rams. He'll be a high-end QB2 if he plays against a Rams defense that has been boosted by the return of cornerback Aqib Talib.
13 days ago: Bears Hoping Mitch Trubisky Returns Next Week
The Chicago Bears are hopeful that quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) will return to face the Rams in Week 14. Trubisky will miss another game in Week 13 against the Giants, with Chase Daniel making his second straight start. Daniel is a low-end QB2 for those desperate in two-QB leagues. Trubisky has improved in his second NFL season and has QB1 upside if he returns next week in a game that could require the Bears to throw often. Trubisky looked great throwing the football on Sunday.
16 days ago: Mitch Trubisky Still Not Throwing
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said that quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) is still not throwing despite being limited in practice on Wednesday. It was announced on Thursday that the Bears will hold Trubisky out for the second straight game. Barring setbacks, he should be ready to return in Week 14. Chase Daniel will get his second straight start under center, but he has limited upside and will be a low-end QB2 this Sunday against the Giants.
16 days ago: Bears To Hold Mitch Trubisky Out For Second Straight Week
The Chicago Bears plan to rest quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) for the second straight game in Week 13 against the Giants despite the fact that he was limited in practice on Wednesday, according to sources. Trubisky could play right now, but the team wants to play it safe. Chase Daniel will get his second straight start as a result. Daniel was 27-for-37 for 230 yards and two touchdowns in the Thanksgiving win over Detroit last Thursday, but he'll be a low-end QB2 play this Sunday.
17 days ago: Mitch Trubisky Not Expected To Practice Wednesday
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said he does not expect quarterback Mitch Trubisky (shoulder) to practice on Wednesday. Trubisky didn't play on Thanksgiving last Thursday but is expected to return in Week 13 to face the Giants, but his week isn't off to a good start. As long as Trubisky returns in some capacity on Thursday of Friday, we think he'll be active on Sunday. In a great matchup against the Giants, Trubisky will return to QB1 upside if he plays.
19 days ago: Mitch Trubisky's Status Up In The Air All Week
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky and his teammates do not return to work until Tuesday, but reports coming out of the organization are that their second-year quarterback's status will be up in the air all week. ESPN's Adam Shefter called the situation "iffy" that Trubisky will be healthy enough to face the Giants in Week 13 but that the team was "hopeful". Trubisky took a late hit from the Vikings Harrison Smith in the right shoulder and reportedly is dealing with an AC sprain. The injury seems to be taking longer to heal up than the team expected and they will be cautious when dealing with their franchise quarterback's throwing arm. Backup Chase Daniel stepped in against the Lions and threw two touchdowns while playing turnover-free football but the fantasy drop-off for the Bears offensive weapons is significant. Trubisky's status could be up in the air all the way up to game time this Sunday.
25 days ago: Mitch Trubisky Questionable For Thursday
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky was a surprise add to the team's injury report on Tuesday and is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Lions. Trubisky is dealing with a right shoulder injury suffered when Vikings defender Harrison Smith hit the second-year quarterback late on a QB scramble in Week 11. Head coach Matt Nagy is "cautiously optimistic" Trubisky will be able to play on Thursday but do not expect him to practice all week. Expect Trubisky to be a game-time decision for the early game on Thanksgiving and backup Chase Daniel would play if he cannot go. Trubisky shredded the Lions a few weeks ago but his injury, coupled with the short week, makes him a very dicey play in fantasy for Week 12.
26 days ago: Mitch Trubisky Mediocre In Victory
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 20 of 31 passes for 165 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the Bears 25-20 win over the Vikings. Trubisky's best moments came from his legs, scrambling for some big first downs and gaining 43 rushing yards in the game. In a game built around defense Trubisky made some smart decisions with the football but was picked off twice on some poor throws. The second-year quarterback has enjoyed some excellent performances this season but has struggled to post above average fantasy stat lines against legitimate defenses. He will be a boom-or-bust play on short rest this Thursday against the Lions.
1 month ago: Mitch Trubisky Has Tough Test Against Vikings
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week after dominating the Lions in Week 10. But he will face perhaps his toughest test of the season Sunday night in Week 11 against division foes the Vikings. Minnesota's defense this season is allowing the 11th fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks and have allowed multiple touchdowns to only two passers through nine games this season. The Vikings will be fresh off their bye week and have not allowed an opposing quarterback to pass for more than 250 since Week 5. Trubisky has emerged as a top-10 fantasy option this season and has 19 total touchdowns over his last five games. The second-year quarterback also has over 300 passing yards in four of his last six games played. Trubisky has been plagued, at times, with inaccuracy issues in the passing game but has the athleticism to keep plays alive with his legs and has 320 rushing yards on the season to go along with 2,304 passing yards. Trubisky has ascended up the fantasy ranks this season but could struggle to post top-10 fantasy numbers among quarterbacks in Week 11.
1 month ago: Mitch Trubisky Throws For Career-High 355 Yards In Win
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 23 of 30 passes for 355 yards, three passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown in the Bears 34-22 win over the Lions. Trubisky absolutely torched the Lions secondary repeatedly en route to four first-half touchdowns and a career-high in passing yards. Bears receivers were open all over the field and the second-year quarterback rarely missed. The return of receiver Allen Robinson was a boon for the offense and rookie Anthony Miller is springing free for huge gains. Trubisky is still growing in the offense but it is clear that he is capable of huge fantasy performances when playing at home. He will have a tougher test next week against the Vikings. Trubisky needs to be owned in all fantasy formats.
1 month ago: Mitch Trubisky Lacks Top-10 Value For Week 10
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will go up against a Lions defense that is allowing the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing passers. Detroit has allowed multiple touchdown passes in four of their last five games but have done a solid job in limiting yards in the air. It has been a positive season for Trubisky but his doubters can point to two areas that need improvement; his accuracy and his lack of production on the road. Like most young players, Trubisky benefits most playing at home and has 12 touchdowns to only four interceptions through four home games. The second-year quarterback playing at home should, at least, allow him to post a solid stat-line but the matchup could prevent him from posting top-10 fantasy numbers at his position for Week 10.
1 month ago: Mitch Trubisky Throws One Touchdown As Bears Cruise
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 12 of 20 passes for 135 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Bears 41-9 throttling of the Bills. Chicago got two defensive touchdowns in the game and some great field position led to several rushing scores. Trubisky threw an awful interception on a bad pass in the second half of salvaged his stat-line with a touchdown pass to Trey Burton late in the fourth quarter. The game at no point forced the Bears to air it out and the second-year quarterback will have a better chance at fantasy production next week at home against the Lions.
2 months ago: Temper Expectations For Mitch Trubisky Against Bills
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky has been fantastic over the last month, passing for 1,223 yards and rushing for 232 yards with 13 touchdowns and only three interceptions over his last four games. From a fantasy perspective, Trubisky has been a star during this stretch of football. But he could encounter some difficulty in Week 9 against a Bills defense that is allowing the seventh fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Buffalo has allowed multiple touchdowns to only one quarterback over the last six weeks. Trubisky has also struggled on the road this season, throwing for only three touchdowns with two interceptions in three road games this season. Expect the Bears to lean on the running game and their defense to pick up a win against the hapless Bills in Week 9. That type of game plan could cut into Trubisky's fantasy production and the second-year quarterback could disappoint this week.
2 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Delivers Two Touchdowns In Win
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 16 of 29 passes for 220 yards, 51 rushing yards and two passing touchdowns in the Bears 24-10 win over the Jets. Trubisky has now posted four straight solid fantasy performances despite his, at times, uneven efforts on the field. The second-year quarterback got a huge boost when a screen pass to running back Tarik Cohen was taken to the house for a 70-yard touchdown. But Trubisky also went through a stretch in the first half where he completed only 1 of 9 passes and his issues with inaccuracy surfaced again. There is little doubt, however, that his game continues to grow and he has proven to be a fantastic rushing quarterback. Trubisky needs to be rostered in all leagues but has a sneaky tough matchup on the road next week against the Bills.
2 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Will Be Top-10 QB Option Against Jets
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky has now thrown for 300 yards in three consecutive games heading into the team's Week 8 matchup against the Jets. He will go up against a Jets defense that has allowed multiple touchdown passes to opposing quarterbacks in four straight games and five out of their last six. They have allowed the 15th most fantasy points to opposing passers this season and have surrendered 20-plus fantasy points to three of their last four quarterbacks faced. Trubisky has 10/4: TD/INT ratio at home this season and, despite some inaccurate throws, has opened some eyes in fantasy circles. Trubisky's ability to make plays with his legs (245 rushing yards on 31 carries) alone will put the second-year quarterback in the conversation for top-10 status among quarterbacks for Week 8.
2 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Comes Up One Yard Short
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 26 of 50 passes for 333 yards, two passing touchdowns and two interceptions in the Bears 38-31 loss to the Patriots. Trubisky added six rushes for 81 yards and a rushing score in a game where his youth showed at critical times. The Bears almost tied the game at the end of regulation but a Hail Mary pass from Trubisky was caught at the 1-yard line by Kevin White that couldn't find its way into the end zone. Trubisky has now posted three straight fantastic fantasy performances and the Bears offense can be explosive thanks to Trubisky's ability to use his legs when the play breaks down. The second-year quarterback is officially fantasy viable and needs to be owned in all formats.
2 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Has Fantasy Appeal Against Patriots
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will look to stay hot against a Patriots defense that is allowing the eighth most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Over his last two games the second-year quarterback has thrown for 670 yards, rushed for 100 yards and has nine passing touchdowns. With two monster fantasy performances in a row, Trubisky's arrow is pointing up. He will take on a Patriots defense that has allowed at least 262 passing yards to four of their last five quarterbacks faced. New England's secondary does have seven interceptions on the season so Trubisky will have to protect the football. But the only way to beat the Patriots is to match their potent passing attack and Trubisky is in line for another strong showing. For the first time in his career, Trubisky is in the discussion as a top-10 quarterback option in fantasy for Week 7.
2 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Throws For Over 300 Yards
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky played efficiently despite his team falling to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The rookie completed 22 of his 31 pass attempts, finishing the day with 316 yards and three touchdowns in addition to rushing for 47 yards on eight attempts. Trubisky continues to play well, compiling 670 yards through the air and nine scores over the past two contest. With the Bears looking to get back on track, they will be tested against the Pats next Sunday in Week 7.
2 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Must Protect Football In Week 6
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will face a tough Dolphins secondary in Miami in Week 6. The Bears went on bye at just the wrong time after the second-year quarterback threw six touchdowns in Week 4 against the Buccaneers. Trubisky is now completing 70% of his passes and will take a 101.6 QB rating into a matchup with an opportunistic Dolphins defense. Miami is allowing the sixth fewest fantasy points to opposing passers and they already have 10 interceptions on the season. The Bears offense will head into the game with plenty of confidence but must protect the football to succeed. Trubisky has shot up the fantasy ranks over the last two weeks but buyer beware. Starting a young quarterback on the road who has produced mixed results through the first month of the season is a roll of the dice in fantasy.
3 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Erupts For Six Touchdowns
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 19 of 26 passes for 354 yards and six touchdown passes in the Bears romp over the Buccaneers 48-10. Trubisky added 53 rushing yards in an out-of-nowhere, all-time performance at home. Receivers were open all over the field and the second-year quarterback did not miss as he tied the franchise record for passing touchdowns in a game. His accuracy was fantastic as the Bears put up 38 first-half points and Trubisky threw the most touchdowns in a single half since the Packers Aaron Rodgers in 2014.. The Bears go into the bye week with plenty of confidence at 3-1 and Trubisky's monster game will have him shooting up the ranks in fantasy. He will have a favorable matchup in two weeks against a Dolphins defense that was torn apart by the Patriots in Week 4.
3 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Has Matchup To Produce In Week 4
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky has passed for 591 yards with one rushing touchdown, two passing touchdowns and three interceptions heading into Week 4. The second-year quarterback currently has a passer rating of 77.8 and has struggled with accuracy despite ranking only 26th in the NFL in yards per pass attempt. It has been a bumpy ride thus far for the Bears offense but will go up against a Buccaneers defense in Week 4 that has allowed the fifth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Tampa Bay has already surrendered 300-plus passing yards games to each of the first three quarterbacks they have faced and can be beat down the field. Trubisky should not be in fantasy lineups in Week 4 but the young quarterback should be able to produce against a beatable secondary.
3 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Leads Second-Half Comeback
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky led several drives that culminated in 13 second-half points to lead a comeback over the Cardinals 16-14. Trubisky completed 24 of 35 passes for 220 yards and one interception in a performance that was ugly at times. Trubisky again struggled with accuracy issues, especially throwing deep, but hung in there to orchestrate some key drives. Trubisky has the weapons and skills to become a winning quarterback but his game is still a work in progress. He should remain on the waiver wire, outside of dynasty leagues, in fantasy for now.
3 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Aims To Improve Against Cardinals
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will take on the Cardinals in Arizona for Week 3. Trubisky has flashed some good on the field through the first two games but has also shown plenty of bad. Accuracy and comfort in the pocket are the biggest reasons, right now, Trubisky will not be fantasy viable in Week 3. The second-year quarterback has a big arm and is unquestionably athletic, providing extra fantasy value with what he can create with his legs. But until his execution improves, he should not be in fantasy lineups. He will have a great opportunity to put up some numbers against a Cardinals team that struggles on offense and has allowed 609 passing yards to quarterbacks through the first two games. Trubisky is barely a top-20 play for Week 3.
3 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Still A Work In Progress In Win
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 25 of 34 passes for 200 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions as the Bears beat the Seahawks 24-17. Trubisky passed for multiple touchdowns for the first time in his career but still left some plays out on the field. The Bears got on the board off of a nifty shovel pass in the red zone to tight end Trey Burton for a touchdown. Trubisky endured some missed opportunities based on bad throws and shaky decision-making led to two interceptions. But he rebounded to find rookie receiver Anthony Miller outside of the pocket in the second half to keep the Bears up two scores. The Bears offense is still a work in progress but will have an excellent matchup next week against the Cardinals. Trubisky, however, will remain a risky play in fantasy until he can improve his execution.
3 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Still In Prove-It Mode
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will get an opportunity to put a full game together when the Bears take on the Seahawks Monday night. Trubisky looked fantastic in the first half against the Packers in Week 1 but conservative play-calling and indecisiveness led to a fantasy dud in the second half. The second-year quarterback has fantasy appeal thanks to fantastic athletic ability and a cast of talented offensive weapons but Trubisky has to turn it into tangible results. He will go up against a Seahawks defense that is in complete flux right now. Seattle allowed the sixth fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks in 2017 but have lost several key members in the offseason. Trubisky has a solid chance to produce in Week 2 but is too risky to start in fantasy lineups this week.
3 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Has Plenty To Prove In Week 1
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will finally give fantasy owners a glimpse of the Bears revamped offense when they take on the Packers Sunday night in Week 1. Head coach Matt Nagy has decided to still almost all of his starters for the entire preseason and Trubisky still lacks game experience. Trubisky scored nine total touchdowns in 12 starts as a rookie last season with a 77.5 QB rating. He will have plenty of new weapons to play with and has a favorable Week 1 matchup against a Packers defense that is in flux right now. Green Bay in 2017 allowed the sixth most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and 30 touchdowns which prompted the front office to change the defensive scheme. Trubisky completed 21-of-35 passes for 297 yards and one touchdown in a losing effort against the Packers in Week 10 of last season. It is hard to envision a top-5 fantasy finish for Trubisky in Week 1 but has the talent to surprise fantasy owners this season. But for now, there are better starting options than Trubisky.
5 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Continues To Be Inconsistent
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky continues to be inconsistent in training camp and threw two interceptions in seven-on-seven drills. He has been intercepted in all three of the team's padded practices so far. Trubisky also threw a perfect fade to tight end Adam Shaheen in the red-zone session. He also rushed through a big hole on a zone-read keeper. Trubisky hasn't even started in a full season in the NFL, so there will be growing pains, especially while learning a new offense. While there will still be ups and downs in 2018, his ceiling should be higher for fantasy owners.
5 months ago: Bears Giving Mitch Trubisky More Freedom In Offense
Chicago Bears right guard Kyle Long said the team is giving quarterback Mitch Trubisky more freedom in the offense heading into his second season. "My little boy is becoming a man. Mitch—they've taken the training wheels off of Mitch's little bike. So he going to be able to do some things creatively and get to showcase his skills," Long said. Trubisky was more of a game manager in his rookie season in a run-heavy offense under ex-head coach John Fox, and the second overall pick in last year's draft threw for just 2,193 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in 12 games played. He enters this year as the unquestioned starter and should put up much better numbers in an offense that has more weapons around him and that should be more balanced. Consider Trubisky a QB2 with sleeper upside in 2018.
11 months ago: New Bears Offensive Coordinator Intrigued With Mitch Trubisky
Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich said he sees a lot of Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota in quarterback Mitch Trubisky, and Helfrich also like's Trubisky's attractive skills and coachability. Helfrich coached Mariota at the University of Oregon. Helfrich will be tasked with improving Trubisky in his second NFL season. "Mitchell has a tight release," Helfrich said. "He's an accurate passer. They also have a couple of things similar that make them inaccurate. Their feet take them out of position. I sense from talking to a couple of offensive linemen, and this was unsolicited, when your offensive linemen are talking about how hard your quarterback works, that's a great sign." Trubisky mainly looked overmatched in his first NFL season, but to be fair, he didn't have much to work with in the passing game. If Chicago adds some decent pass catchers in the offseason, Trubisky should be able to take a step forward, but he's still more attractive in dynasty leagues than in redraft ones.
12 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Can't Rally Bears Against Vikings
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky wrapped up his first NFL season with a 23-10 loss to the Vikings. Trubisky finishes his rookie campaign with a record of 4-8 and has made some subtle strides as the season has gone along. He completed 20 of 36 passes for 178 yards against the Vikings but averaged only 4.9 yards per completion. Trubisky led two impressive drives in the fourth quarter, but the Bears failed to find the end zone despite running eight plays from inside the five-yard line. The Bears should be looking for a new coach next season, and there have been flashes of potential from Trubisky to give hope that he could develop into a difference maker in his second season. For the year, Trubisky threw for 2,093 yards with nine total touchdowns and seven interceptions in 12 starts.
12 months ago: Mitch Trubisky's Fantasy Production On The Rise
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky continues to make steady progress in his rookie season after throwing for 193 yards with a rushing touchdown in the Bears 20-3 win over the Browns. Trubisky is now averaging 259 yards passing over his last three games with two passing touchdowns and two rushing scores. This week, however, the rookie with go up against a Vikings defense with something to play for and has allowed the third fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Trubisky made his NFL debut against the Vikings in Week 5 and certainly has come a long way since throwing for 128 yards with one touchdown and one interception in that game. But Trubisky should not be in fantasy lineups in Week 17 against a defense that hasn't allowed more than 173 yards to a passer since Week 12.
12 months ago: Sit Mitch Trubisky Despite Excellent Matchup
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will look to bounce back from a three-interception performance last week against the Lions. The Bears are slowly opening up the playbook for the rookie, which has led to an increase in passing yards but also in turnover possibilities. Trubisky is improving but has five interceptions to only three touchdown passes over his last five games. He will go up against a winless Browns defense that has allowed the fifth most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. They have allowed multiple touchdown passes to nine different passers this season, but Trubisky has not thrown for more than one score yet in his career. With the fantasy championship on the line, it is tough to trust Trubisky in any format for Week 16.
12 months ago: Mitch Trubisky Throws Three Interceptions In Clunker
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky threw for over 300 yards for the first time in his career but also had three interceptions in the Bears inept loss to the Lions 20-10. The Bears could not get anything going on offense in the first half and most of Trubisky's numbers (31 of 46 for 314 yards) can be attributed to a lot of garbage-time passes. Trubisky made some nice throws in the game, but the offense never found a rhythm and the rookie paid dearly whenever he was inaccurate. The Bears will face the winless Browns next week.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky's Arrow Pointing Up Against Lions
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will look to build off his two-touchdown, 271-yard performance against the Bengals when the Bears travel to Detroit for Week 15. He will go up against a Lions defense that has allowed at least 269 yards and multiple touchdowns to the last three quarterback's they have faced. The rookie quarterback has thrown for over 200 yards only twice thus far in his first season but has an excellent shot at eclipsing that against a Lions team that has allowed 200 passing yards to 11 different quarterbacks this season. Trubisky threw for 179 yards and one touchdown in a Week 11 loss to the Lions and is still very raw in terms of experience. Trubisky's fantasy value is on the rise but does not deserve starting consideration in fantasy for Week 15.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Shines With Two Touchdowns In Best Performance As A Pro
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 25 of 32 passes for 271 yards, including one passing touchdown and one rushing score, as the Bears steam rolled the Bengals 33-7. Trubisky was on point the entire game, hitting receiver Kendall Wright consistently, leading a 200-yard plus running attack and hitting tight end Adam Shaheen with a perfect pass in the end zone for a touchdown. The rookie has taken his lumps at times, but this performance offers glimmers of hope for the future. Trubisky is not a fantasy option this deep into the season but has plenty of value in keeper and dynasty leagues.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Could Struggle Against Bengals
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will get another tough test when the Bears travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. The Bengals have allowed the 12th fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks but have surrendered at least 200 yards to each of their last seven passing opponents. Two hundred yards is a number that Trubisky has eclipsed only once in his rookie campaign, and he could struggle again this Sunday. Trubisky is not a fantasy option this week.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Makes Small Progress Against 49ers
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky completed 12 of 15 passes for only 102 yards, including a nice touchdown pass to wide receiver Dontrelle Inman as the Bears coughed up the lead late and lost to the 49ers 15-14. Trubisky enjoyed an efficient first half and the Bears were aided by a punt-return touchdown by running back Tarik Cohen. But the Bears in the second half struggled to move the football and the lack of a running game stalled drives in a scoreless final half. Trubisky is gaining invaluable experience but does not have the weapons nor the moxie to post decent fantasy stat lines at this time. He does possess value in dynasty and keeper leagues but should not be in lineups the rest of the season.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Trying To Iron Out Mechanics
Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky had a terrible game in Week 12 in the 31-3 loss to the Eagles, and both he and offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains acknowledged that his mechanics were partially to blame. "I had bad footwork in the game," Trubisky said. "Usually that leads to bad accuracy and … timing. A lot of throws in that game are throws that I make on time, and bad footwork and bad timing caused a couple of throws to be off." He was just 17-for-33 for 147 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. The Bears receivers also did Trubisky no favors, and that has been a common theme in his rookie season. Trubisky has a great bounce-back opportunity against the 49ers this weekend, but the Bears prefer to lean on the run, and Trubisky is using Dontrelle Inman as his No. 1 receiver, so the upside is low. He's strictly a low-end QB2 option.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Has Excellent Matchup Against 49ers
Chicago Bears Mitch Trubisky certainly has experienced some bumps and bruises during his rookie season. He has thrown four touchdowns to go with four interceptions and is completing less than 54 percent of his passes in seven games. But of all the weeks to see glimpses of a potential Pro Bowl future, this is the week for Trubisky. He will go up against a 49ers defense that has allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season. They have allowed at least 14 fantasy points to every opposing signal caller this season and have allowed multiple touchdowns in each of their last six games. They also have allowed at least 200 passing yards in their last nine games. Trubisky is not on the fantasy radar but has an excellent shot at 200 or more passing yards and the first multiple-touchdown game of his career.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Gets Destroyed By Eagles
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky received the rookie treatment against the Eagles, passing for only 147 yards in the Bears 31-3 loss. Trubisky completed only 17-of-32 passes, including two interceptions in a game that got out of hand early. This was a mismatch from the jump and Trubisky took his lumps in this affair. He had a couple of nice throws in garbage time but, ultimately, the Bears couldn't get anything going on offense. The silver lining for the rookie quarterback was that he didn't fold under pressure and remained poised in the pocket despite the circumstances. Trubisky will have some better match-ups ahead against the 49ers, Bengals and Browns in the coming weeks but lacks the weapons on offense and experience to become a streamable fantasy asset.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky To Face Toughest Test Against Eagles
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky has flashed improvement each week as he continues to get invaluable repetitions. The rookie quarterback posted 232 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown last week but will face his toughest test yet against an Eagles defense that has had its ears pinned back over the past few games. Over the past three games, they have allowed only two touchdown passes and have intercepted seven balls. The Eagles defense also has 11 interceptions over their last five games, and Trubisky will have to protect the football while simultaneously trying to keep up with MVP candidate Carson Wentz. Trubisky is not a recommended fantasy play for Week 12.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky's Comeback Spoiled By Last Second Missed Field Goal
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky passed for 179 yards and added 53 rushing yards with one touchdown pass in the Bears 27-24 loss. On the final drive to tie the game, Trubisky had a fantastic scramble on fourth-and-13 for a first down and then fired a strike to wide receiver Dontrelle Inman to set up a 46-yard field goal. Kicker Connor Barth shanked the kick and the Bears get saddled with another loss. But Trubisky flashed some signs of improvement and got the Bears off to a 10-0 start early after finding tight end Adam Shaeen for a 1-yard touchdown. Trubisky is also now 13-of-29 in situations where the Bears need to drive and tie or take the lead in a game with less than two minutes to play. Those numbers are not pretty and have not been aided by drops from the Bears receivers in those situations. But Trubisky has been getting thrown into the fire often and he has responded by making plays. Those 29 passes are all valuable learning experiences at this point. Trubisky is not a fantasy option right now but a worthy asset in keeper and dynasty leagues right now.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Will Need To Protect Football Against Opportunistic Lions Defense
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky will face a tough test Sunday against an opportunistic Lions defense led by playmaker Darius Slay. The Lions have picked off opposing quarterbacks 11 times this season, including three games of multiple interceptions in a game. Trubisky has passed for 809 yards this season with three touchdowns and two interceptions. He's coming off a 297-yard passing performance against the Packers but ball security will be his highest priority this week. Trubisky is learning the ropes and the rookie is not a fantasy option in Week 11.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Enjoys Career Fantasy Day In Loss
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky enjoyed his best day as a pro, completing 21-of-35 passes for 297 and one touchdown as the Bears fell short to the Packers 23-16. For the second week in a row, Trubisky also had a possible touchdown called back on a grey-area fumble by Benny Cunningham that was reversed by officials and resulted in the Bears losing the football. Chicago's coaching staff certainly opened up the offense in this game and Trubisky made some elite throws. He also developed a quick chemistry with newly acquired wide receiver Dontrelle Inman by targeting him eight times for 88 yards. Trubisky is not on the fantasy radar but definitely made some progress in this game.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Hopes To Continue Development After Bye Week
Mitch Trubisky's numbers so far this season are pretty dreadful. The rookie is completing only 47.8% of his passes and attempting only 20 per game. It has been a steep learning curve for the quarterback but has mixed in inconsistencies with flashes of excellent, big-time plays. Trubisky this week will face a Packers team that has been crumbling since the injury to All-Pro Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay's defense has allowed at least 14 fantasy points to an opposing quarterback in six of its eight games this season. They also have been hit up for 300 yards passing in its past two games. The Bears need Trubisky to protect the football but this is a prime opportunity for him to air it out a bit. Trubisky is not a fantasy option at this time but could post his best fantasy stat-line of his young career in Week 10.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Comes Up Short In New Orleans
Mitch Trubisky completed only 14 passes on 32 attempts for 164 and one interception as the Bears came up short against the Saints 20-12. The stats don't tell the whole story as Trubisky made some nice throws and even added 53 yards rushing. He had a touchdown completion to Zach Miller taken away after Miller injured his leg on the catch and the refs deemed that he did not complete the catch. Trubisky however reeled off a couple of big gains and scrambled for a huge 46-yard run to set up a score. In the end, he air-mailed a pass that was picked off on the final drive to possibly tie the game. Trubisky is not fantasy viable right now due to the lack of pass catchers available, and healthy, to throw to as the Bears head into their bye week.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Not A Fantasy Option Against Saints
Mitch Trubisky and the Bears will face a surpassingly improved Saints defense in New Orleans for Week 8. The Bears will also face the explosive offense of Drew Brees and will need to score points in the game. Trubisky and the Bears offensive game plan this season has been to hand the ball off and play defense. That tactic will not work against the Saints and Trubisky has only attempted 23 passes the past two weeks. If he is forced to throw the football he could make a few mistakes against a secondary that has eight interceptions this season. The rookie has potential, but possesses zero fantasy potential right now as he is learning the ropes of the NFL.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Attempts Only Seven Passes
Mitch Trubisky completed only 4-of-7 passes for 107 yards as the Bears defense dominated the Panthers en route to 17-3 victory. The Bears scored two defensive touchdowns as the offense couldn't get anything going the entire game. Trubisky did complete an excellent deep-ball pass to running back Tarik Cohen for a 70-yard gain to set up a field goal. Trubisky has talent but the Bears are limiting his responsibilities in the passing game. Trubisky will not be on the fantasy radar heading into next week's matchup with the Saints.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Still Not Ready For Fantasy Limelight
Mitch Trubisky and the Bears will host the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. The Panthers could be without field general Luke Keuchly and that could make their defense vulnerable. They also have allowed 10 touchdowns to only one interception to quarterbacks this season. The Bears are doing everything they can to protect Trubisky from mistakes and a talent-bereft wide receiving corps and will try and run the ball as much as possible. Trubisky is not a fantasy option right now even though he is an ascending player.
1 year ago: Clutch Play By Mitch Trubisky Sets Up Winning Field Goal
Nobody is mistaking rookie Mitch Trubisky with the play of some kind of veteran All-Pro through his first two starts. But an excellent, athletic play to find Kendall Wright in overtime was enough to set up a Connor Barth field goal and a Bears win 27-24 over the Ravens. Trubisky completed only 8-of-16 passes for 113 yards but also tossed a touchdown to tight end Dion Sims. Trubisky also added 32 rushing yards in a game that had many twists and turns. Trubisky is not ready for fantasy stardom yet but nor is the offensive weapons that surround him. Jordan Howard is one of the few fantasy assurances moving forward on the Bears.
1 year ago: Tarik Cohen's Value Is Cloudy With Mitch Trubisky
Tarik Cohen and the Bears will look to upset the Ravens this Sunday. After an explosive first two games, Cohen has been quiet the past few weeks. It appears that the league has adjusted to the shifty rookie and Cohen needs to attack the defense north/south as opposed to east/west. The Ravens can be beaten in the ground game but it is unclear how Cohen fits in with rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky at the helm. Cohen hauled in 16 receptions out of the passing game the first two games but only has nine over his last three games. Cohen is a bust candidate in fantasy this weekend and is no higher than an RB3.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Faces Tough First Test On The Road
Mitch Trubisky will make his second start, first on the road, of this young NFL career this Sunday against the Ravens. Trubisky has a small sample size in terms of numbers but the one number the Bears offense has to avoid is the plus/minus on turnovers. The Bears have turned the ball over on offense 10 times through the first five games and Ravens coach John Harbaugh is 9-0 lifetime at home when playing a rookie quarterback. Trubisky put up a less than stellar fantasy stat line last week and turnovers only further depresses his value in an offense bereft of playmakers. Trubisky has value in dynasty leagues but should not be in lineups for Week 6.
1 year ago: Tarik Cohen Disappears With Mitch Trubisky At Quarterback
Tarik Cohen was bottled up by the Viking defense on Monday night, totaling only seven yards on seven touches in the 20-17 loss. With rookie Mitch Trubisky making his NFL debut, the Bears tried to get Cohen involved early but the Vikings were ready. Cohen spent most of the game moving sideline to sideline trying to find space instead of bursting through holes with authority. It will be interesting to see the adjustments the Bears offense will make in the coming weeks. The league appears to have caught onto the elusiveness of the rookie Cohen and now it is his turn to adjust. The Bears have another tough matchup next week against the Ravens and Cohen will be reduced to an RB3/FLEX at best for Week 6.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Flashes Potential
Mitch Trubisky showed off some of his potential but also his inexperience in an up and down performance on Monday night football. Trubisky completed only 12-of-25 passes for 128 yards, one touchdown and one interception as the Bears fell to the Vikings 20-17. Bears coaches after the game talked about how impressed they were with Trubisky's "presence" in the huddle and certainly gave Bears fans some hope. Trubisky began the game 6-of-7 and made some impressive completions but were called back due to penalties. Trubisky was also blindsided for a strip-sack fumble and the offense appeared to be out of sync most of the game. The Bears had an opportunity to drive down the field with less than two minutes to play but Trubisky was intercepted by Harrison Smith on an impressive break on the ball. Trubisky's talent and inexperience were on full display in his first game and should improve as the weeks move on. He is not fantasy viable as the Bears iron out the wrinkles on offense.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky's Fantasy Value Should Reflect His Inexperience
Mitch Trubisky will make his NFL debut Monday night against the Vikings. Bears fans have been foaming at the mouth for the number two overall pick and the time has finally come. Trubisky brings a lot of attributes to the table that Mike Glennon simply does not possess. Trubisky is far more athletic, has a stronger arm and has a quick twitch to his game that could help him avoid sacks and make some plays outside of the pocket. Trubisky will have a tough first test against a Vikings defense that gave Lions quarterback Matt Stafford fits last week. They have allowed only five touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks and have 11 sacks on the season. Trubisky may not be a top-12 play in fantasy but could produce a solid fantasy stat line especially if he uses his legs to rack up rushing yards.
1 year ago: Bears Confident In Mitch Trubisky
Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said he's excited to see rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky make his first NFL start because he is "as close to ready as any rookie I've ever been around," Loggains said. The second overall pick in the draft has quickly learned the playbook and processed the terminology and has a "quiet confidence" about him. Despite their excitement, the Bears coaching staff is emphasizing that Trubisky won't be a "magic wand" for their offensive woes so far. Sure, Trubisky has upside, but aside from a solid run game, he doesn't have much to work with through the air, with Kendall Wright serving as the No. 1 receiver. That'll make Trubisky extremely inconsistent, and he'll start with an extremely tough matchup against a Vikings defense. The rookie is strictly a low-end QB2 in two-quarterback leagues.
1 year ago: Bears To Start Mitch Trubisky
The Bears have decided to bench quarterback Mike Glennon and replace him with rookie Mitch Trubisky, according to chicagotribune.com. The Bears have an entire week to prepare for the Vikings next Monday night and this will give them plenty of time to create a game plan for the number two overall pick in the 2017 draft. Glennon committed eight turnovers (five interceptions, three fumbles) in four games as the starter and never could get any momentum going. Trubisky has value in dynasty and keeper leagues but it is a little early to determine his value on the fantasy market right now. What the Bears need is stability at the quarterback position and someone who will not turn the ball over. Trubisky passed for 364 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions during the preseason.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Could Be Inserted As Starter
Coach John Fox told reporters after the game that Mike Glennon is still the quarterback and not Mitch Trubisky. But Glennon's performance was atrocious and his limited athleticism does not mesh well with an inexperience wide receiving corps. Trubisky would provide several dynamics to the offense as starter that Glennon cannot. First, he clearly would energize a fan base and possibly a locker room. Trubisky also possesses the ability to move out of the pocket and make some throws on the run when the play has broken down. He also has a stronger arm and opposing defenses need to cover more of the field. It may not happen this week, but the chants are growing louder and louder for the Bears to insert the number two pick in the 2017 draft into the lineup sooner rather than later.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Will Start Preseason Finale
Bears coach John Fox has told reporters that Mitch Trubisky will start the preseason finale Thursday night against the Browns, per espn.com. The Bears will play the rookie quarterback and backup Connor Shaw in the game as the Bears want Trubisky to get as many reps as possible. The rookie quarterback has been impressive in the preseason, tossing one touchdown in each game thus far. The Bears have named Mike Glennon the starter but Trubisky is hot on his heels. It is only a matter of time before he gets his chance this season.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Tosses 45-Yard Touchdown Bomb
Mitch Trubisky completed 10-of-15 passes for 128 yards, including a 45-yard touchdown to wide receiver Tanner Gentry in the Bears 19-7 win over the Titans. Trubisky entered the game in the second half and played with the first string unit for the first time in the preseason. Trubisky struggled on his first few drives but then began to flash his immense potential again. He showed excellent pocket presence, using his eyes to shift from his first to secondary options and made some nice throws under pressure. Trubisky still is learning the nuances of the position and isn't expected to begin the season as starter. But it should only be a matter of time before he becomes the man under center for the Bears this season.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Could See First-Team Snaps Against Titans
Mitch Trubisky may see some snaps with the first team offense in the third preseason game against the Titans, per ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. Quarterback Mike Glennon is still the starter, and absolutely needs as many snaps as possible, but the rookie Trubisky may work with the first stringers in the game. The idea is to begin prepping Trubisky to eventually become the backup this season ahead of Mark Sanchez and to this point has been playing with third string players. Glennon will need to improve his play as Trubisky is slowly being elevated up the ranks among Bears coaches.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Throws One Touchdown In Limited Appearance
Mitch Trubisky completed six of eight passes for 60 yards and one passing touchdown as the Bears edged the Cardinals 24-23. Trubisky's second preseason game saw the rookie see less playing time as the starter Mike Glennon played the entire first half. Backup Mark Sanchez played the third quarter and Trubisky came in with minutes left in the third. From there Trubisky at times flashed superior arm strength and directed several promising drives. One of those drives unfortunately ended in the rookie taking an ill-timed sack on third down that forced the Bears to punt. The other drive he capitalized on an excellent play call that had Trubisky rolling to his right and easily finding running back Benny Cunningham for the score and eventual game winner. Trubisky did not play quite as well as he showed in the first preseason game but he clearly has talent to play and succeed in the NFL.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Dazzles In Debut
Mitch Trubisky had an excellent NFL debut, completing 18 of 25 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown in the first preseason game of the season. Trubisky also rushed for 38 yards and completed his first eight pass attempts. The Bears brought him in with less than two minutes to play in the first half and he immediately led the offense down the field for a score. The drive was punctuated with Trubisky quickly moving to his left and finding wide receiver Victor Cruz for a 2-yard touchdown catch. The second half flashed more of his potential, frequently using bootlegs to highlight Trubisky's ability to throw on the move accurately. Trubisky did a little bit of everything against the Broncos second/third string defenses and even had an opportunity to tie the game with seconds remaining with the Bears in the red zone. Bears fans are overjoyed at the performance but fantasy owners need a little perspective. Trubisky will have to duplicate this production at least two more times before coach John Fox even begins to consider making him the Week 1 starter. But for now, Trubisky gave glimpses of a talented future.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky To Get Plenty Of Snaps Thursday
The Bears will begin their preseason schedule Thursday night against the Denver Broncos and rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky should see plenty of snaps, per chicagobears.com. Trubisky is currently listed as the number three quarterback on the depth chart heading into the game behind Mark Sanchez and starter Mike Glennon. Expect Glennon to play a maximum of two series, Sanchez to play the rest of the first half and then perhaps Trubisky the entire second half. The Bears do not have any other quarterbacks in camp so the number two pick in the 2017 NFL draft will give Bears fans and dynasty fantasy owners all the reason in the world to tune in on Thursday night.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Will Compete For Starting Role
Rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky will come into the first preseason game on August 10th slotted behind Mark Sanchez and starter Mike Glennon on the Bears depth chart. But according to John 'Moon' Mullin of CSN Chicago, he would not be shocked if Trubisky won the starting job by the end of preseason. "You see them along side each other, you seem them trading off the reps and so forth. Trubisky's got the 'it' factor," said Mullin. "I've seen a lot of quarterbacks and this kid's got something to him. You don't see that with Glennon." The chances of Trubisky starting the season are slim but there's a more than decent shot that Trubisky will see the field at some point this season. Rookie quarterbacks are hard to plug in and play in fantasy but some flashes of potential makes Trubisky an interesting dynasty/keeper-QB moving forward.
1 year ago: Mitch Trubisky Fumbles Three Times During Drill
The growing pains have begun for Mitch Trubisky, who fumbled three times taking snaps under center during a training camp drill, per chicagotribune.com. Trubisky only took snaps from shotgun in college and training camp will be, at times, a steep learning curve for the number two pick in the 2017 draft. The Bears front office and coaching staff have remained adamant that Trubisky will sit and learn during his first season in the NFL and is currently listed as the number three quarterback behind Mike Glennon and Mark Sanchez.
