2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the more confusing off-seasons belongs to the Chicago Bears. Most knew that it was time for the Jay Cutler era to end, but if you pegged the Bears signing Mike Glennon to a huge deal, then giving up a ton of draft stock to move up one spot to select Mitchell Trubisky, I have a palm you can read.

Glennon comes to the Bears on what is essentially a one-year, $18-million dollar deal. That's middle of the road starting QB money, but the problem is that doesn't quite jibe with how this roster is built. At some point after signing Glennon, the Bears either had a change of heart, or fell so deeply in love with Trubisky they couldn't pass him up. So while the rookie from North Carolina waits his turn and the Bears give the keys to Glennon, what can we expect from a fantasy perspective? Frankly, not much. A few factors are going to conspire to make Glennon an extremely fringe fantasy asset.

First, the Chicago offense is predicated on the run game. Since John Fox became head coach two years ago, the team has never been higher than 22nd in pass attempts, so it's highly unlikely Glennon's stats will be boosted by sheer volume. Next, Glennon himself hasn't seen meaningful snaps in nearly three years. That season he went 1-6 as a starter and threw only ten touchdowns compared to six interceptions. Sure, he had a quietly effective rookie year (which is probably the only reason he got the big contract he did), but that was many moons ago, and clearly Tampa didn't think he was the franchise quarterback because they drafted Jameis Winston. Look, Glennon will probably turn out to be a fine backup quarterback one day. He's terribly limited athletically, and basically someone whose best asset is not screwing things up. He might have some value in a two-quarterback league, but he has such a limited upside, that I don't think he's currently roster material in standard fantasy leagues.

Mike Glennon to remain starter all season?
Mitchell Trubisky not expected to push veteran
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 17, 6:50 pm

Chicgao Bears
For those just tuning back in after last year's 3-13 finish - this is not an open quarterback competition. It's not veteran Mike Glennon versus second-overall pick Mitchell Trubisky with coach John Fox dangling the car keys between them. It's Glennon's job on Day 1, and the team plans for the depth chart to remain stacked that way. All season, in fact. Until further notice, Glennon's grip on the job remains strong because he is the only one of the two trained in an NFL offense. (Chicago Tribune)

FFToday's Take: It's the right approach given how raw Trubisky is, but it remains to be seen if the Bears will have the conviction to stick to it like so few teams before them have. At the very least, Glennon should give this offense - specifically Cameron Meredith and Jordan Howard - a decent shot to match or exceed its production from last season. Glennon is a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes.
