Mitchell Trubisky Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Bills inked QB Mitchell Trubisky to a 1-year deal. He goes from #2 overall pick to backup in the span of 4 years. Trubisky is obviously off the redraft radar, while his dynasty value continues to dwindle. He'll be 27 when he hits free agency again next offseason.

NFL Network reports that the Bears are expected to sign QB Andy Dalton to a 1-year deal worth $10 million, with a $12.5 million max. That sounds like the contract Ryan Fitzpatrick is getting in Washington and points to Dalton likely taking over the starting gig. Dalton is a better option than Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky but doesn't present a big upgrade to the fantasy outlooks of other guys in the Chicago offense.

Update: "They told me I was the starter," Dalton said, according to Adam Jahns of The Athletic.

Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Packers. QB Mitchell Trubisky gets the start in his place.

Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) is listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. So it’ll be Mitchell Trubisky back under center for Chicago. He chucked for 432 yards, 5 TDs and 2 INTs in plus matchups vs. the Lions and Giants to open the season before getting benched in Week 3. Trubisky brings some rushing upside but is still just a lower-end QB2 for Week 12.

Bears QB Nick Foles (hip) did not practice on Wednesday, while QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) was a full-go. Chicago has 2 more practices before Sunday night's game against the Packers, but Trubisky looks like the early favorite to be under center for that one.

The Bears head toward Week 12 with injuries to both QBs. Nick Foles sustained a hip injury late in last Monday night's loss to the Vikings. Mitchell Trubisky entered that week with a shoulder injury and is still working back from it. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, HC Matt Nagy declined to say Monday who will start Sunday against the Packers, adding that a switch to Trubisky is "on the table." Tyler Bray came on to finish the Week 10 game after Foles' injury.

Bears QB Nick Foles hurt his right hip late in Monday night's loss to the Vikings and left the field on a cart. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Foles "is actually OK" and that initial testing found no fracture in the hip. Foles is headed for further testing, and the Bears get a Week 11 bye. If Foles does miss further time, Garafolo says there's a chance Mitchell Trubisky's injured shoulder will be ready after the bye. Tyler Bray replaced Foles for the final few plays on Monday night.

Bears HC Matt Nagy on Monday delivered the announcement we all expected. QB Nick Foles will start Sunday's game against the Colts. Foles, of course, came on and engineered a comeback win at Atlanta after the Bears yanked Mitchell Trubisky. Foles completed 16 of 29 passes for 188 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT. That's not a stellar outing against a bad Falcons defense, but Foles should offer a bit more stability than Trubisky. He falls short of Trubisky, however, in fantasy upside without the rushing threat. Foles is only a waiver option for 2-QB and superflex fantasy football leagues, especially against an Indy defense that ranks among the league's best pass rushes. Nagy added that it's Foles' job going forward, rather than a week-to-week evaluation. We'll see what happens if/when Foles falters.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky was benched in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in Atlanta. He went 13 of 22 for 128 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT, leading Chicago to just 10 points. QB Nick Foles is in for the Bears.

The Bears will start QB Mitchell Trubisky in Week 1 against the Lions, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Trubisky and QB Nick Foles seemed to play to a draw in training camp, so Chicago will give its former #2 overall pick one more shot. We're still expecting Foles to start games this season. And this is still a situation to avoid in fantasy drafts.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Monday that he'll announce the team's starting QB sometime between Monday and Wednesday next week, ahead of the regular-season opener. Nagy had previously intimated he wouldn't name a starter ahead of game day but called Monday's news a clarification. Camp reports haven't had either Nick Foles or Mitchell Trubisky taking a noticeable lead in the competition. Neither would make for all that interesting a fantasy option, though Trubisky at least sports rushing upside.

Bears GM Ryan Pace has said there's an "open competition" for the team's starting QB job, according to multiple reports. That's not surprising, given the quality of Mitchell Trubisky's play so far and the team's trade for Nick Foles. It's nice to hear the official word, though. We should either get a slight upgrade in Foles or a better-performing Trubisky in the Chicago offense in 2020. Either would mark a welcome change, with some intriguing talent in the skill-position group.

The Jaguars have traded QB Nick Foles to the Bears in exchange for a compensatory 4th-round pick, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Foles notably spent 2012 with Bears HC Matt Nagy in Philadelphia and 2016 with him in Kansas City, so there's some familiarity there. Still, we imagine that this will be an open competition for the starting job this summer between Foles and Mitchell Trubisky. Neither guy is an exciting target in early best-ball drafts. In Jacksonville, meanwhile, QB Gardner Minshew is left atop the depth chart for now.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky underwent surgery shortly after the end of the season to repair a partially torn labrum in his left (non-throwing) shoulder. This is likely related to the dislocated shoulder that cost him 1 game back in October. Trubisky is expected to be rehabbing for the next "couple of months," according to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson. So this shouldn't have a major impact on his offseason, but it's still less than ideal for a guy seemingly entering a make-or-break year in Chicago. GM Ryan Pace said earlier this offseason that the "plan" is for Trubisky to be the team's 2020 starter.

Bears GM Ryan Pace said Tuesday that the "plan" is for QB Mitchell Trubisky to be the team's 2020 starter. "Mitch is the starter and we believe in him and we believe in the progress he is going to continue to make," Pace said. Trubisky didn't make any progress this past season. In fact, his completion rate, yards per attempt and QB Rating all sunk from 2018 to 2019. He finished 32nd among QBs in fantasy points per game. Trubisky will be just a low-end QB2 in 2020 fantasy drafts.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. Even in Sunday’s plus matchup at home for the Giants, Trubisky is just a QB2.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (hip) put in a full practice on Wednesday. So he should be available for this weekend's game against the Giants -- and HC Matt Nagy said a healthy Trubisky is still the starter. Even in this plus matchup, though, Trubisky remains a low-end QB2.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Monday that QB Mitchell Trubisky has been diagnosed with a right hip pointer. The injury reportedly occurred late in the 2nd quarter of Sunday night's loss to the Rams. Trubisky played the 3rd quarter and most of the 4th before getting yanked for QB Chase Daniel. “Every decision that was made, it had zero to do with his play," Nagy said. "It was completely based off his injury and where he was at.” A healthy Trubisky will remain Chicago's starter, but you should continue to stay away from this situation in fantasy football.

The Bears pulled QB Mitchell Trubisky out of Sunday night's game late in the 4th quarter. The team reported that Trubisky has a hip injury, but we didn't see the injury while watching the game. Trubisky also watched the final drive while pacing the sideline, as opposed to getting treatment or examination. Trubisky was 24 of 43 for 190 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT when he left. We'll see where this goes.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Saints. He ends up missing just 1 game with his dislocated left shoulder. The injury was to his non-throwing arm, so it shouldn’t impact his passing. But it could definitely limit his rushing.
