2019 Fantasy Outlook
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 QBs. 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, third 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) as 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 TD 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 QB door, especially considering how his mobility pads his fantasy stats (421 rush yards, three TDs last season). But he also needs a healthy receiving corps. Allen Robinson missed three games last year, while Anthony Miller and tight end Trey Burton aren't expected to practice much this offseason as they continue to recover from injuries. The Bears hope to have the whole gang healthy for the start of training camp as they embark on Year 2 of the Nagy/Trubisky era. Read Past Outlooks

Posts 300 yards in losing effort

January 6, 2019
Trubisky completed 26 of 43 passes for 303 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' 16-15 playoff loss to the Eagles on Sunday.
Trubisky started off slowly, getting away with two passes that should've been intercepted, but in the fourth quarter, he started throwing downfield, which allowed him to move the ball almost at will and leading him to a 300-yard effort. While breaking out in the regular season, he threw for 3,223 yards with 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions while adding 421 yards and three scores on the ground. Despite his solid numbers, he was an erratic fantasy option who showed outstanding upside, but he ended the season with just five touchdown passes over his last five games. Going into the third year of his rookie deal, he should continue to grow in his second year in Matt Nagy's offense.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
