Trubisky’s scholarship with the Bears might be coming to an end after the team acquired QB Nick Foles in March.
The 2nd overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, Trubisky now has 41 pro starts under his belt. He simply hasn’t emerged as a reliable starter. After taking a nice step forward from his 1st to 2nd seasons, 2019 was a big step back. His completion rate sunk from 66.6% to 63.2%; his passing yards per game from 230 to 209; and his TD rate from 5.5% to 3.3%. Trubisky’s 6.1 yards per attempt was a career low and ranked dead last among 27 QBs with 300+ attempts last year. He finished 23rd in that group in Pro Football Focus’ passing grades.
He was a bit more useful in fantasy because of his rushing production. Trubisky’s 48 carries, 193 yards and 2 TDs all ranked top 14 among QBs. But even those numbers were well down from his 68-421-3 rushing line in 2018. Trubisky finished just 26th among QBs in fantasy points last season after ranking 15th in 2018.
We’ll see if he makes a stand for the starting job this summer. Foles certainly isn’t the stiffest of competition. But it’s worth noting that he’s spent 2 seasons (2012 and 2016) with Bears HC Matt Nagy and 1 (2013) with OC Bill Lazor. So Trubisky won’t hold much of an advantage in terms of familiarity with the offense.
Trubisky will battle with Nick Foles for the starting job this summer. Considering Trubisky’s ugly 2019 and the fact that Chicago went out and traded for Foles, we’d consider Foles the early favorite in the competition.
Neither guy is worth picking outside of the deepest of fantasy drafts — although Trubisky still brings more fantasy appeal thanks to his rushi…
