2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Saddled with the least creative offensive coaches in the NFL and given the worst receiver corps in the league, it's not a big surprise that Trubisky, the highly touted No.2 overall pick, struggled to make much noise in 2017. But last year's Rams have proven that with the right coaches, and an infusion of talent, offenses can make a dramatic improvement, and the Bears have followed this recipe to a T.

Gone is the archaic offensive philosophy of John Fox, and in comes the young mind of Matt Nagy, who cut his teeth in the classroom of Andy Reid. Say what you will about his clock management, but Reid's offensive system has consistently produced fantasy stars at his stops in Philadelphia and Kansas City. In addition to the forward thinking Nagy, Chicago went all out in free agency, snagging big play receivers in Alan Robinson and Taylor Gabriel and move tight end Trey Burton. The Bears even moved up in the 2nd round of the draft to select the prolific Anthony Miller from Memphis. Overnight the Bears shook off the dust and reinvented themselves on offense from top to bottom. With a staff also willing to engineer more plays for electric Tarik Cohen, Trubisky has elite playmakers at every level of the offense.

Now a QB can have all the talent in the world, but what exactly have we seen from Trubisky to be sold on him as a fantasy asset? For one, he completed nearly 60% of his passes, which is great considering his circumstances, and his perceived rawness coming out of North Carolina. A quick look at the stats shows a guy who got more comfortable as he got more starts, and other than a blowout loss to the Eagles, he kept his team in every game they played. He also showed plenty of athleticism, rushing for the 13th most yards amongst quarterbacks despite playing in only 12 games.

The Bears lost a ton of close games last year, and retained one of the best defensive coaches in the NFL in Vic Fangio. It's going to take some time for these pieces to gel on offense and Robinson has to prove he's all the back from the torn ACL, but I really think the Bears are going to surprise people this year. I think Trubisky makes a leap in his second season and finishes as an upper tier QB2, and is someone I'd be looking to add late to pair with an established star.

Trubisky poised for second-year breakout?

Chicgao Bears
Asked (Kyle Long) how (Mitchell Trubisky) has grown this offseason (besides the scruff): "My little boy is becoming a man. Mitch - they've taken the training wheels off of Mitch's little bike. So he going to be able to do some things creatively and get to showcase his skills. We're excited to see him. He's a tremendous leader and somebody the guys look up to in the locker room. And he's probably one of the coolest guys on the team, to be honest, not just because he's the quarterback. He's a really cool kid and we're lucky to have him." (Chicago Sun-Times)

FFToday's Take: Trubisky flashed during the preseason but former HC John Fox and OC Dowell Loggains did everything they could to hide him, although it was a bit understandable considering the lack of offensive weapons Chicago had in 2017. New HC Matt Nagy won't have the same limitations (in regards to creativity or supporting cast), which means Trubisky should definitely be a strong QB2 option in fantasy.
