Chicago Bears WR Ted Ginn Jr. said he expects QB Mitchell Trubisky to be the starting quarterback this season.
Huddle Up: Trubisky will be competing with Nick Foles for the starting job during training camp but may have an advantage since he is more familiar with the offense. Fantasy players can monitor the situation during camp, but neither quarterback should be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky said Friday, June 13, that he has been motivated by the team's offseason acquisition of QB Nick Foles. 'It was kind of interesting to be, but that's the business we live in,' Trubisky said in a Zoom media conference. 'I think I was kind of pissed off in a good way. I've been motivated ever since. ... I know we're going to push each other, but I still feel like this is my team.'
Huddle Up: Trubisky had a fantasy surge late last season, but this is one of the few true QB battles this summer. But until we have a definite starter, don't bother drafting either Chicago QB outside of deep two-quarterback leagues for the time being.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky still has belief of general manager Ryan Pace even though the quarterback's fifth-year contract option wasn't exercised. 'We've always had the approach that we're honest and we're truthful with our players and our staff, and we move on and we get to work. ...' Pace said Thursday, May 7, in an interview on radio station WSCR. 'Mitch gets it. Everyone's competing. Everyone's focused on better results. That's the entire team. That starts with me and everybody. We believe in Mitch -- that doesn't change. ... I think you can point to [cornerback] Kyle Fuller as a great example of a player that didn't get his option exercised. I think we would say it worked out well for him and for us.'
Huddle Up: Trubisky now has serious competition for the starting job in new acquisition Nick Foles, and even if he does win the gig, he's no more than a low-end QB2 for fantasy.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky will not have his fifth-year option picked up this offseason, according to a source.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky is entering his fourth season, and while the team hasn't made an announcement on whether it plans to pick up his fifth-year contract option, league insiders believe Chicago will not. If the Bears pick up Trubiksky's option, the salary projects to top $24 million.
Huddle Up: Trusbisky has struggled in reality and fantasy over his first three seasons and is no lock to even start this season with the Bears adding Nick Foles. Forget a fifth-year option, that's Trubisky's immediate concern.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky (shoulder) is on track in his rehab and should be ready for training camp, according to general manage Ryan Pace.
Huddle Up: Trubisky will be competing with Nick Foles for the starting quarterback job during training camp but will open camp as the No. 1 quarterback. He should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he keeps the job.

The Chicago Bears are expected to add a veteran quarterback this offseason to push QB Mitchell Trubisky, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN Thursday, Feb. 27. Fowler adds the ideal candidate would have 'pedigree and extensive starter's experience.'
Huddle Up: This isn't good news for those holding out hope for Trubisky in keeper or dynasty leagues. Under this circumstance, Trubisky would be likely to enter the year as the starter, but he could be replaced at any time if he remains ineffective. He's a low-end QB2 in redraft leagues.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky was reaffirmed the starter by general manager Ryan Pace Tuesday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: Trubisky had a forgettable season after he made a leap into the midrange QB1 area. You'd be hard-pressed to find him taken as anything more than a high-end QB2 after his fall from grace.
