Trubisky signed with the Buffalo Bills in the offseason. He will back up Josh Allen, and thus does not have any Fantasy value unless Allen suffers an injury. In very deep two-quarterback Dynasty leagues, Trubisky remains a stash on the off chance he gets another chance as a starter in 2022.
Trubisky has looked polished during the first week-plus of training camp, Dante Lasting of the Bills' official site reports. "Mitch has been a really good addition since he's been here," offensive coordinator Brian Daboll said Monday. "A guy that's played 50-some games. Has seen a lot of football. Standing back at that position, it's different than watching it from the press box, or watching it from the sideline, or anything like that. So, there are things that have happened to him throughout his young career so far that I think can help Josh and assist Josh, and vice-versa." Trubisky has a 0.0 percent chance of unseating Josh Allen, but he was wisely brought in because the Bills were looking for someone that could run the offense in passable fashion to Allen should the latter ever go down with injury. And Trubisky fits that bill with his size and legs. Given the Bills' high-powered offense and his ability to do some damage with his legs, Trubisky should be toward the top of any cheatsheets once you get to the backup QB section.
Trubisky will sign a one-year deal with the Bills, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. In terms of fantasy value, this is a terrible landing spot for managers of Trubisky in dynasty formats, as he's being signed to serve strictly as a backup to Josh Allen, with no chance at a starting job. However, in football terms it's a sound signing, as Trubisky has a similar style of play to Allen and gives a Super Bowl contender viable insurance in case the franchise signal caller suffers an injury. Trubisky is still just 26 years old and has a first-round pedigree, so as far as career development goes, being in the QB room of a high-powered offense with a good coaching staff may aid him toward bigger and better things down the road.
Trubisky completed 19 of 29 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown while rushing three times for 10 yards in the Bears' 21-9 loss to the Saints in the wild-card round. Trubisky was not only missing Darnell Mooney (ankle), but Anthony Miller was ejected early in the second half, leaving him light on weapons against one of the better defenses in the league. His performance should've been better, but Javon Wims dropped a touchdown pass in the first quarter and the Saints dominated the time of possession, leaving few offensive possessions to pile up fantasy points. On the season, Trubisky played in 10 games, passing for 2,055 yards along with 16 touchdowns against eight interceptions, and he's set to become an unrestricted free agent. If he finds a starting job, his running ability will make him a quarterback who could have appeal in fantasy leagues that start two QBs.
Trubisky completed 33 of 42 passes for 252 yards and an interception while adding four rushes for 22 yards in Chicago's 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday. Trubisky threw mostly short passes while being used primarily as a game manager, and the Bears were able to find the end zone only a single time, resulting in a disappointing fantasy performance. On the season, Trubisky played in 10 games, passing for 2,055 yards along with 16 touchdowns against eight interceptions, and once Chicago finishes its playoff run, he's set to be an unrestricted free agent.
Trubisky completed 24 of 35 passes for 265 yards, two touchdowns and one interception while adding 10 yards and a touchdown on the ground in Chicago's 41-17 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday. Trubisky was surprisingly called upon to throw 36 passes in a game the Bears won by 24 points, but between locking in on Jimmy Graham for a pair of touchdown passes while calling his own number at the goal line for a rushing score, the quarterback ended up with a strong fantasy performance. He's accounted for exactly three touchdowns in three of Chicago's last five games, but he'll have a difficult home matchup in Week 17 against the Packers.
