Mitch Trubisky still has faith from Bears' front office

Less than a week after declining Mitch Trubisky's fifth-year tender, Bears GM Ryan Pace said that “We believe in Mitch — that doesn’t change." (Chicago Sun-Times)

Fantasy Impact:

Trubisky's days as a starting quarterback seemed to be behind him after the Bears recently traded for Nick Foles, but Pace's comments contradict that common thought. Pace has really tied his reputation to the former second-overall pick after he traded up for him in 2017 and lauded him as the future of the franchise. Since then Trubisky has struggled, posting a 48/29 TD/INT ratio and going 23-18 with a roster full of talent, while only seeing one playoff game in three seasons. There's a slight chance that Mitch can win the starting gig in camp this year, but Foles seems to have a lock on the job. Our consensus rankings have Foles ranked as our 31st overall quarterback and Trubisky as the 34th, meaning that we predict Foles to start as well. These quotes from Pace sound like encouraging coachspeak in hopes to light a fire under Trubisky in a contract year, but it would be shocking to see anyone besides Foles under center Week 1.
