Mitchell Trubisky Fantasy Football News 2018

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday night’s showdown with the Rams. That’s a plus matchup, but Trubisky also brings a good deal of risk coming off that throwing-shoulder injury.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It confirms that he's on track to return for Sunday night's game against the Rams. That's a good matchup vs. the #21 QB defense, but Trubisky is a risky fantasy play in his 1st game back from a throwing-shoulder injury.

Bears HC Matt Nagy said Wednesday that he "feels strong" about QB Mitchell Trubisky's chances of returning from his shoulder injury for Sunday night's game against the Rams. "But I’ve got to see more” in practice, Nagy added. Chicago could certainly use its starting QB in a tough spot this weekend. We'll keep a close eye on his practice participation over the next few weeks.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Giants. He returned to a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start today but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game against the Giants. He put in a limited practice on Friday, giving him a shot to return for Week 14. QB Chase Daniel gets another start on Sunday but is a low-end QB2 in fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Bears QB Chase Daniel is expected to start this weekend's game against the Giants. QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday, but the team "wants to play it safe" with him, according to Garafolo. Daniel played conservative football in Detroit on Thanksgiving, completing 27 of 37 passes for 230 yards, 2 TDs and 0 INTs. In a tougher matchup in New York, he's just a low-end QB2 for Week 13.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. HC Matt Nagy reiterated that Trubisky's shoulder injury isn't a "long-term issue," but it's looking like he'll miss at least 1 more game.

The forecast for today's Jets-Bears game calls for 20 mph sustained winds with gusts around 35 mph. That's more than enough to impact the deep-passing and kicking games. You shouldn't have been investing in the Jets passing game anyway, but the weather is a downgrade for QB Mitchell Trubisky and WR Taylor Gabriel. Short-range targets like TE Trey Burton and RB Tarik Cohen should be fine.

Bears WR Allen Robinson (groin) is not expected to play against the Jets today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "The hope is a week off gets him right.," Rapoport adds. Robinson's absence leaves Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller, Kevin White and Josh Bellamy as Chicago's top 4 WRs. It should also mean a few extra targets for RB Tarik Cohen and TE Trey Burton.

Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky has been "inconsistent" at the start of training camp, according to the Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell. "One throw will be late, off target or ill-advised, and the next throw will be perfectly placed and on time," Campbell writes. We're just a few days into what's been a rainy training camp for the Bears, so it's far too early to even think about worrying. But it's a good time to remember that Trubisky is a 2nd-year QB in a brand new offense with a bunch of new weapons. It wouldn't be a surprise to see him get off to a relatively slow start this season.

The Bears have named Mark Helfrich their new OC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Helfrich spent 4 seasons as Chip Kelly's OC at Oregon before serving as the Ducks' HC from 2013-2016. While HC Matt Nagy will call plays for the Bears, Helfrich should bring some tempo and creativity to the offense. We like the coaching staff Chicago is putting together for QB Mitchell Trubisky.

The Bears have named Matt Nagy their new HC. Nagy won't turn 40 until April 24, but he has spent the past 10 years coaching under Andy Reid, dating back to their time in Philadelphia. Nagy spent 4 years as the QBs coach in Kansas City before taking over as OC in 2017. After 4 straight years of finishing 20th or lower in yards, the Chiefs leaped to 5th in the league this season. They also matched their 6th-place scoring finish from 2013, the best mark since Reid arrived. Nagy inherits a young Bears offense with a QB drafted 3rd overall last April, a young pair of RBs and WRs Cameron Meredith and Kevin White coming off injuries. There's upside here for fantasy football drafters. We'll watch for Nagy to fill out his staff and offer any clues about his plans for the Chicago offense.

The Bears have fired HC John Fox. He went 14-34 in 3 seasons in Chicago, finishing last in the NFC North all 3 years. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bears are looking for an offensive mind to replace Fox and work with QB Mitchell Trubisky.

ESPN's Dan Graziano and Adam Schefter report that the Bears will start QB Mitchell Trubisky in next Monday night's game against the Vikings. So the plan to let the rookie redshirt this season lasted 4 weeks. QB Mike Glennon has been a turnover machine, tossing 5 INTs and losing 3 fumbles in 4 games. There will be a learning curve for Trubisky, but he looked excellent this preseason, completing 36 of 53 passes (67.9%) for 364 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs. He also added 48 yards on the ground. Trubisky won't be a Week 5 fantasy option, but he can only help this Bears offense going forward.

Bears QB Mike Glennon rebounded statistically in Saturday's 2nd preseason game, including a TD pass to WR Kendall Wright late in the 2nd quarter. But that followed a drive-killing, 1st-quarter INT in the red zone and another pass that should have been picked. Glennon finished 13-of-18 for 80 yards -- better than his 2-of-9 1st outing. Rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky, meanwhile, again followed #2 QB Mark Sanchez into the game. Trubisky completed 6 of 8 passes for 60 yards and a TD to Benny Cunningham. Trubisky also avoided an INT on a ball that should have been picked. We'll see if anything changes with the QB order in the "dress rehearsal" 3rd preseason game, but Chicago looks like it'll head into the year with a shaky Glennon under center.
