2020 Fantasy Outlook
Trubisky's regression from a promising sophomore season was ugly to watch last year. His YPA declined nearly a yard and a half from 7.4 to 6.1, which was even a half yard less than his rookie mark. His average depth of target dropped from 9.7 yards (4th) to 8.3 (20th), and his 8.8 YPA on attempts longer than 20 yards ranked 29th. And despite nearly 100 more attempts, he threw seven fewer TD passes. Trubisky's rushing even took a sharp decline from the previous year, dropping from 421 to 193 yards. So, it wasn't surprising when the Bears declined his fifth-year option and traded for Nick Foles to compete for the starting job this season. While the team said both quarterbacks will get equal reps in training camp, Foles might be the favorite as he's reunited with head coach Matt Nagy, offensive coordinator Bill Lazor and QBs coach John DeFilippo, each of whom he has played for at his various NFL stops. Even if Trubisky wins the job, he'll likely be looking over his shoulder all season. The Bears did little to improve a below-average offensive line, only adding free-agent Germain Ifedi, who was a first-round bust in Seattle. Allen Robinson is the only dependable playmaker to target downfield, though second-round TE Cole Kmet looks promising. Tarik Cohen returns a sure set of hands out of the backfield after 104 targets last season, and Anthony Miller came on strong late last year before suffering another shoulder injury. Trubisky's fantasy advantage over Foles is his rushing production, but if that doesn't bounce back, then what? The Bears are in win-now mode, and this is likely Trubisky's last shot to live up to his lofty draft status. Read Past Outlooks

Embracing competition with Foles

June 1, 2020
Coach Matt Nagy said Monday that Trubisky (shoulder) has been "really, really good in the fact that he's taken this [competition] head-on," Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Nagy has previously stated that the team's Week 1 starter will be determined in an open competition between Trubisky and Nick Foles, whom the team acquired for a fourth-round pick in a trade with Jacksonville in April. The Bears then declined to pick up Trubisky's fifth-year option, a hint that Foles is viewed internally as the frontrunner to beat out Trubisky in training camp and the preseason. The 25-year-old demonstrated a career-low 6.1 yards per pass attempt last season while leading one of the least potent offenses in the league. He's also recovering from January surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
2017
Trubisky took big strides in his development last season, increasing his completion rate by more than seven percentage points from his rookie year (to 66.6) and his YPA by nearly a full yard (to 7.4) as he led the Bears to their first division title since 2010. His passer rating improved by 17.9 points from his rookie season, the largest increase in the NFL among qualified quarterbacks. It helped that first-year coach Matt Nagy actually let Trubisky throw downfield, unlike the previous regime. Trubisky's average depth of target was 9.7 yards, fourth in the NFL, and his 10 completions of 40-plus yards ranked sixth. He has room to grow with his downfield passing, though. On attempts longer than 20 yards, his YPA was 11.4 (22nd) and he completed only 32.3 percent (22nd). Trubisky was also maddeningly inconsistent. After starting the year with two touchdown passes in three games, he struck for six in Week 4. The next few weeks were productive, but in his final seven games he failed to top 200 yards passing four times, and had just five touchdown passes in his last five games. Another stride forward in his second season in Nagy's offense would see Trubisky knocking on the top-10 fantasy QB door, especially considering how his mobility pads his fantasy stats (421 rush yards, three touchdowns last season). And his second year with top wideout Allen Robinson should mean continued improvement for both. But he also needs a healthy receiving corps. Robinson missed three games last year, and second-year receiver Anthony Miller and tight end Trey Burton are not expected to practice much this offseason while they recover from injuries. The Bears hope to have the whole gang healthy for the start of training camp as they embark on Year 2 under Nagy.
Drafted second overall in 2017, Trubisky became the starter in Week 5 when the Bears could finally stomach Mike Glennon no more. But an absence of playmakers in the passing game and an ultra-conservative offense prevented the strong-armed Trubisky from showing much. The Bears attempted the fewest passes in the league (473), and when Trubisky did throw, he rarely attacked downfield. How rarely? Trubisky threw 23 passes beyond 20 yards - a mere 6.9 percent of his attempts. Among quarterbacks with at least 36 passes, only Glennon, natch, attempted a lower rate of downfield throws (4.3 percent on 140 attempts). The Bears also tied for the league low in red-zone trips with 33, which should change this year with the arrival of former Kansas City offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as the new head coach. With former Oregon coach Mark Helfrich hired as coordinator, Nagy promises to increase the offense's pace and, most important, attack downfield. He revamped the WR corps with 6-3 Allen Robinson, the speedy Taylor Gabriel and second-round pick Anthony Miller. Each comes with some risk, but it's still a major upgrade over last year's ineffective crew. The Bears also signed TE Trey Burton for the Travis Kelce role in Nagy's offense. Trubisky's mobility should give him a decent floor, and with a strong running game led by Jordan Howard, the young QB won't have to shoulder all the offensive load. Trubisky is well positioned for a big step forward in 2018.
Trubisky was a somewhat surprising pick at No. 2 overall in this year's draft as the Bears traded up to grab what they hope will be their quarterback of the future. The team is banking on his dual-threat skills, big arm and athleticism because the 6-3, 220, quarterback figures to face a steep learning curve. Trubisky was a one-year starter at North Carolina and lined up almost exclusively in shotgun in a spread system that did not require NFL-type reads. The Bears want to give him plenty of time to grow, as they signed Mike Glennon to start this season. But Glennon is nothing special, so it wouldn't be that surprising if Trubisky gets snaps this year. If he does, Trubisky's standout rushing skills could give him a decent floor even as he develops as a passer. His strong performance in the preseason might even allow him to threaten for the starting job early in the year.
