Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 18-of-28 passes for 190 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 2 against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Trubisky has tossed five touchdowns and led his team to two wins in two games. Nick Foles didn't take his job, but might have lit a fire under the former first-round pick. He is still more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues, but not for long if he keeps up posting multi-touchdown games every week.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 20-of-36 passes for 242 yards and three fourth-quarter touchdowns in Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Trubisky and the Bears were down 23-6, and there were probably people clamoring for Nick Foles already. But Trubisky righted the ship and engineered a giant comeback to hang onto his job for a while, most likely. Still, he remains nothing more than a low-end QB2 at this point.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky has officially been named the team's starting quarterback by head coach Matt Nagy.
Huddle Up: Trubisky will look to improve his stats from last season but could be on a short leash with Nick Foles as his backup. He could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in some leagues but is not a starting option.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky is expected to be named the team's starting quarterback, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Trubisky was able to beat out Nick Foles for the job and will look to improve on his 2019 stats. It is not known if Trubisky will be able to keep the job for entire season, so fantasy players should consider him a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky drew compliments from teammate WR/RB Cordarrelle Patterson Tuesday, Aug. 18, for his demeanor at training camp. 'The way he's handling things. I feel he's been more of a leader,' Patterson said. 'Last year I didn't feel like he was that guy, but this year he's taking over. He wants everybody to know that he's that guy and we can come to him when we need something. He's doing a helluva job with it.'
Huddle Up: Trubisky is competing with trade-acquisition Nick Foles for the Bears' Week 1 starting job. Neither candidate would be much more than a low-tier QB2 in deeper leagues or Superflex leagues.

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky said he worked with a quarterbacks coach this offseason and worked on improving his footwork and mechanics.
Huddle Up: Trubisky will be competing with Nick Foles for the starting job over the next weeks. He is struggled at times over the last few seasons but does know the offense well, which could be an advantage in the competition. Trubisky would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job.

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.
