Mitch Trubisky is expected the be the Bears' starting QB Week 1 over Nick Foles, per JJ Stankevitz of NBC Sports Chicago. (NBC Sports Chicago )
Trubisky is competing with Nick Foles for the Bears' starting QB job. "He’ll have a very, very, very short leash," said Stankevitz. "It’s going to be hard for either Trubisky or Foles to truly “win” the Bears’ quarterback competition over the next few weeks. Fifteen practices in 18 days and no preseason games will not provide a clear enough picture for coaches and Pace, no matter how well the Bears’ decision-makers do to drill down on the minutiae of every rep at taken at Halas Hall." Trubisky did not have his fifth-year option picked up and will be a free agent after the 2020 season. The 25-year-old threw for 3.318 yards with a 17-10 TD:INT ratio across 15 games in 2019. Trubisky is currently 34th among all quarterbacks in the latest expert consensus rankings, and is only worth selecting in SuperFlex/Two-QB league formats.
