Mitchell Trubisky Fantasy: Is the Bears QB Worth Adding?

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky hit the ground running in Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In a superb first half, he completed 14-of-18 passes for 289 yards and five touchdowns while leading the Bears to a massive 38-3 lead.

While Trubisky looks excellent in this game, he’s had a few mediocre games prior to this, making his fantasy football value tough to gauge. Over the first three games, Trubisky had two games where he failed to throw a touchdown, so this outburst was unexpected.

So the question becomes, should fantasy football owners take the dive and add Trubisky to their roster after this big game? For starters, it shouldn’t be as anything more than a backup, but let’s break it down.


Trubisky’s Huge Game and Future Outlook

While I hate being the downer on situations like this, Trubisky was facing one of the worst defenses against opposing quarterbacks in the Buccaneers. Heading into the Week 4 matchup, Tampa Bay had allowed 1,126 passing yards and seven touchdowns to opposing signal callers.

But it’s worth noting that two of Trubisky’s other matchups (Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks) were tough matchups against teams very good against the position. It seems as though Trubisky’s fantasy value may simply come down to the matchup at this point, which is understandable for a second-year quarterback.
