Mitch Trubisky: Signing with Buffalo

Trubisky will sign with the Bills, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: In terms of fantasy value, this is a terrible landing spot for managers or Trubisky in dynasty formats, as he's being signed to serve as a backup to Josh Allen with no chance at a starting job. However, in football terms it's a sound signing, as Trubisky has a similar style of play to Allen and gives a Super Bowl contender viable insurance in case the franchise QB suffers an injury.

Mitch Trubisky: Held to fewer than 200 yards

Trubisky completed 19 of 29 passes for 199 yards and a touchdown while rushing three times for 10 yards in the Bears' 21-9 loss to the Saints in the wild-card round.

Analysis: Trubisky was not only missing Darnell Mooney (ankle), but Anthony Miller was ejected early in the second half, leaving him light on weapons against one of the better defenses in the league. His performance should've been better, but Javon Wims dropped an early touchdown pass in the first quarter and with the Saints dominating the time of possession, there weren't many offensive possessions to pile up fantasy points. On the season, Trubisky played in 10 games, passing for 2,055 yards along with 16 touchdowns against eight interceptions, and he's set to become an unrestricted free agent. If he finds a starting job, his running ability will make him a quarterback who could have appeal in fantasy leagues that start two quarterbacks.

Mitch Trubisky: Fails to find end zone

Trubisky completed 33 of 42 passes for 252 yards and an interception while adding four rushes for 22 yards in Chicago's 35-16 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Analysis: Trubisky threw mostly short passes while being used mostly as a game manager, and the Bears were only able to find the end zone a single time, resulting in a disappointing fantasy performance. On the season, he played in 10 games, passing for 2,055 yards along with 16 touchdowns against eight interceptions, and once Chicago finishes its playoff run, he's set to be an unrestricted free agent.

Mitch Trubisky: Accounts for three scores

Trubisky completed 24 of 35 passes for 265 yards, two touchdowns and one interception while adding 10 yards and a touchdown on the ground in Chicago's 41-17 victory over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Analysis: Trubisky was surprisingly called upon to throw 36 passes in a game the Bears won by more than three touchdowns, but between locking in on Jimmy Graham for a pair of touchdown passes while calling his own number at the goal line for a rushing score, the quarterback ended up with a strong fantasy performance. He's accounted for exactly three touchdowns in three of Chicago's last five games, but he'll have a difficult home matchup in Week 17 against the Packers.

Mitch Trubisky: Efficient effort in win

Trubisky completed 15 of 21 passes for 202 yards, a touchdown and an interception while adding eight rushes for 34 yards in the Bears' 33-27 victory over the Vikings on Sunday.

Analysis: Trubisky was only needed as a game manager in a game that Chicago led throughout, leading to the team passing on just a third of their offensive snaps, but the quarterback had consistent success by getting out of the pocket and either finding open receivers or running when the opportunity presented itself. Despite a favorable Week 16 matchup against the Jaguars, he'll likely be a fantasy option in superflex or two-quarterback leagues.

Mitch Trubisky: Best game of season

Trubisky completed 24 of 33 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns while adding four rushes for 23 yards in the Bears' 36-7 victory over the Texans on Sunday.

Analysis: Trubisky threw all three of his touchdown passes in the second quarter, and once the game was out of hand, he settled into game-manager mode, having already provided fantasy managers with a big game. He's thrown for at least 242 yards in each of his last three games while accounting for seven touchdowns during that span, and with a favorable schedule over the next two weeks, he should be considered a top-20 quarterback option.

Mitch Trubisky: Efficient in loss

Trubisky completed 26 of 34 passes for 267 yards and a touchdown in Chicago's 34-30 loss to the Lions on Sunday.

Analysis: Trubisky led the Bears to 23 points in the first half, but all three of the team's touchdowns came on the ground, and he didn't fire a touchdown pass until the fourth quarter in a game that the Bears controlled until he lost a crucial fumble in the last two minutes of the contest, which ultimately cost them the game. Should he retain the starting job in the fantasy playoffs, he'll have a trio of favorable matchups, and he'll likely perform as a top-24 option.

Mitch Trubisky: Starting again Week 13

Coach Matt Nagy said Trubisky will start Sunday's game versus the Lions, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Analysis: Nagy didn't make a decision on the Bears' starting QB for Week 12 until Friday, but he got out ahead of it and made the call to go with Trubisky over Nick Foles (hip) for Week 13. Foles himself returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday, but perhaps he was testing the waters to see how his hip pointer would hold up. In any case, Trubisky will have a chance for redemption after completing just 26 of 46 passes for 242 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions this past Sunday at Green Bay.

Mitch Trubisky: Trending toward Week 13 start

Trubisky appears likely to start against the Lions in Week 13, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Coach Matt Nagy didn't officially name Trubisky his starter while speaking to the media Monday, but Adam Jahns of The Athletic agrees that the 2017 No. 2 overall pick looks set to get another chance under center. Trubisky threw 242 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions against the Packers during Sunday night's 41-25 divisional loss, but much of that production was racked up with the game well out of hand. Should Nick Foles (hip) make substantial progress in his recovery this week, it could make Nagy's decision to determine a starter more complicated.

Mitch Trubisky: Three touchdown passes in loss

Trubisky completed 26 of 46 passes for 242 yards and three touchdowns along with two interceptions in Chicago's 41-25 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Analysis: Trubisky and the Bears fell quickly behind in this contest, but once the game was out of hand, he was able to pile up significant production while the defense was no longer playing aggressively. Should he continue to function as a starting quarterback, he'll be considered a low-upside fantasy option.

Mitch Trubisky: Confirmed as Week 12 starter

Matt Nagy confirmed Trubisky will start Sunday's game against Green Bay, but the coach wouldn't commit to a starting QB beyond Week 12, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Nick Foles (hip) is listed as doubtful, and it sounds like he'll be the backup even if he's active. A Week 11 bye gave Trubisky's right shoulder some time to heal, and he's now set for his first start since September after logging full practices Wednesday through Friday. It's anyone's guess what happens beyond Sunday, as neither QB has played well for the Bears.

November 27, 2020 12:17 PM EST

Mitch Trubisky: Expected to start

Trubisky is expected to start Sunday's game against the Packers, as fellow QB Nick Foles (hip) is doubtful for the contest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Foles was absent from practice throughout the week, while Trubisky (shoulder) was a full participant each day. Barring a last-second miracle in Foles' recovery, Trubisky will make his first start since Week 3.

November 27, 2020 11:44 AM EST

Mitch Trubisky: Practices without restrictions

Trubisky (shoulder) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Trubisky handled Chicago's No.1 quarterback reps at practice Wednesday with Nick Foles (hip) still sidelined. Coach Matt Nagy hasn't yet named a starting quarterback for Week 12 between Trubisky and Foles, but if only one of those options is fully healthy, that decision could make itself. However, Foles is still considered day-to-day, per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, so his availability can't yet be completely ruled out.

November 25, 2020 1:28 PM EST

Mitch Trubisky: Believed to be healthy for Week 12

Trubisky (shoulder) is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Packers, but the Bears have yet to decide whether he or Nick Foles (hip) will be the team's starting quarterback Week 12, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Head coach Matt Nagy is expected to speak to the media later Wednesday, at which point some clarity on the Bears' muddled quarterback situation heading into the Week 12 matchup should arrive. Rapoport relays that Foles -- who has started the team's past seven games -- would likely remain atop the depth chart if deemed healthy, but Foles may still be feeling the effects of the hip pointer he sustained in the Bears' Nov. 16 loss to the Vikings prior to a Week 11 bye. At the very least, Trubisky looks like he should unseat Tyler Bray as the Bears' No. 2 quarterback after he missed the team's final two games before the bye week with a right shoulder injury.

November 25, 2020 8:27 AM EST

Mitch Trubisky: Starter still TBD for Week 12

Coach Matt Nagy said Monday that he's not yet ready to name Trubisky (shoulder) or Nick Foles (hip) the starter for Sunday's game against the Packers, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Trubisky has been sidelined since Week 8 due to a lingering shoulder injury, but Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that the 2017 first-round pick is present for Monday's practice while Foles is absent. The Bears reportedly consider Foles day-to-day due to a potential hip pointer sustained Nov. 16 versus Minnesota. It appears that a substantive update on Chicago's quarterback situation won't arrive until Wednesday's practice at the earliest, but the Week 12 starting gig could simply go to whomever of Trubisky or Foles is healthiest.

November 23, 2020 11:50 AM EST

Mitch Trubisky: May reenter starting conversation

Coach Matt Nagy may consider a QB change in the wake of Nick Foles (hip/glute) getting injured during Monday's loss to the Vikings, Stacey Dales of NFL Network reports. "Everything's on the table," Nagy said.

Analysis: The Bears don't believe Foles' injury is as bad as initially thought, and Nagy considers the quarterback to be day-to-day as the team enters its bye week. During the respite from playing, Nagy intends to look into the situation at QB to determine who is best suited to start Sunday, Nov. 29 in Green Bay. Trubisky has missed the last two games due to an unspecified right shoulder injury, but if he gains clearance to play before Foles, there seems to be a chance Nagy will turn to the fourth-year signal-caller.

November 17, 2020 9:19 AM EST

Mitch Trubisky: Officially out

Trubisky (shoulder) will not play in Monday's matchup against the Vikings.

Analysis: Chicago has a Week 11 bye, so Trubisky will have an extra week to recover before the Bears' next game. With Nick Foles being the only healthy quarterback on their roster, look for the team to make another move prior to Monday's game.

November 14, 2020 12:57 PM EST

Mitch Trubisky: DNP to start week

Trubisky (shoulder) did not practice Thursday.

Analysis: The Bears have a Monday night matchup against the Vikings on deck, so Trubisky will get the benefit of an extra day to get healthy, but at this time it looks as though he's trending toward another absence. Chicago will go on bye Week 11, so it seems likely that the team will hold Trubisky at least until then in order to guarantee his shoulder heals without setbacks.

November 12, 2020 2:44 PM EST

Mitch Trubisky: Expected to avoid IR

Coach Matt Nagy said Friday that Trubisky (shoulder) is not expected to be placed on injured reserve, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Trubisky is also expected to avoid undergoing surgery to address his shoulder injury. The Bears reportedly view Trubisky as week-to-week, and the fact that he isn't a serious candidate for injured reserve hints that the team expects him to miss less than three games.

November 6, 2020 1:33 PM EST

Mitch Trubisky: Avoiding shoulder surgery

Trubisky won't require surgery on his right shoulder and will continue undergoing rehab in Chicago, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The 26-year-old visited Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on Thursday to determine whether surgery would be necessary, and it appears he received good news during the appointment. Trubisky is considered week-to-week, but it was previously indicated he's expected to be sidelined for "at least a few weeks."
