Mitch Trubisky’s 14th round ADP is too low considering his ceiling
There is a world where we’re looking back on 2019 with Trubisky as a top-5 fantasy QB. He finished as a QB1 in fantasy points per game last season (4-pt passing TDs), and we saw a glimpse of his ceiling multiple times last year in Matt Nagy’s system.
He had a three-game stretch last season in which he averaged a ridiculous 39 fantasy points per game. He had a very off game immediately following that stretch, but returned with a 37.6 fantasy point week the week after. He was averaging 28.88 points in that 5-game span.
He definitely wasn’t the most consistent QB, especially after his shoulder injury the following week, but Nagy has shown he has a real ability to game plan, and Trubisky can benefit if he can take another step forward in that scheme.
If you find yourself stacking up skill position depth and find yourself without a QB until very late (which I find myself at times at end of many drafts), I wouldn’t be opposed to grabbing him to start against the Packers in Week 1 at home. Don’t like what I see in Week 1? Stream from there. If you’re someone who likes to grab two QBs, he’s a great 2nd option for upside as a trade asset after a potential great Week 1.
Is Mitch on your radar as a very late QB target?
