Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky connected on 16 of his 27 passing attempts for 120 yards against the Denver Broncos in Week 2. He also ran once for eight yards.
Huddle Up: If you watched early, John Fox-era Trubisky, this looked eerily familiar as the third-year pro was heavily managed. Only one of Trubisky's completions went for more than 20 yards, but it was his last one, a clutch 25-yarder to set up the game-winning field goal. Maybe that gives him something to build off. Maybe not. For now, Trubisky should be nowhere near your starting lineup.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 26 of 45 passes for 228 yards, no touchdowns and an interception against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, Sept. 5. Trubisky also ran three times for 11 yards.
Huddle Up: There was a lot of talk that Trubisky was ready to take his game to another level, but that certainly wasn't the case in the opener. Trubisky again did most of his work on short and intermediate routes, and he had some questionable decisions as well -- he finished with just one interception, but he had an easy one dropped by Kevin King and another deflected ball late that barely contacted the ground first. Although it's far too early to overreact, Trubisky's Week 2 matchup in Denver doesn't look very appealing at this point.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky is 'way past' where he was last season in reading defenses, according to head coach Matt Nagy. Trubisky was not always in tune with reading blitzes and coverages because he was so worried about getting the play called. Now, he's playing off of instincts.
Huddle Up: It's a promising tidbit, but it also needs to be shown on the field. There are a lot of quarterbacks jumbled in the midrange to low-end QB1 area this year. Some are aging, and some haven't taken that next step. Trubisky could be jumbled into that pot or as a high-end QB2.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 26-of-43 passes for 303 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the NFC Wild Card playoff game loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Trubisky finished the 2018 regular season with 3,223 passing yards, 24 touchdowns, 12 interceptions and a 95.4 QB Rating. He will enter the 2019 NFL season as a low-end QB1 fantasy target with plenty of upside, especially if Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller can take another step forward.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky went 25-of-29 for 246 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the San Francisco 49ers. He added five carries for three yards.
Huddle Up: The one score was a four-yard toss to Anthony Miller. Otherwise, he did what he needed to in order to win the game and little else. Trubisky has flashed fantasy QB1 upside at times in 2018, but his fundamentals are still a bit lacking and he could use more seasoning. Owners in playoff leagues are probably wise to avoid him if possible, while redraft owners should view him more as a matchup-based QB2 in 2019.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 20-of-28 passes for 235 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Trubisky had his highest yardage total and completion percentage in three games, and it was also his first multi-TD game since Nov. 11 against the Detroit Lions. He has emerged as a decent low-end QB1 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Bears travel to meet San Francisco in Week 16.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 16 of 30 passes for 110 yards, a touchdown and three interceptions against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 9. He added 23 yards on six carries.
Huddle Up: While fans will revel in the win and the performance of Chicago's defense, fantasy owners shouldn't gloss over how terrible Trubisky looked returning from a two-game absence against a team that gave up roughly 85 points to the Chiefs a few weeks back. Inaccuracy and poor decision making were the easiest to spot, but more worrisome was how uncomfortable he looked in the cold weather. With three games of fewer than 175 passing yards in his last four, Trubisky is a risky play even against a patchwork Packers secondary in Week 15.
