Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubisky seems poised to win the starting job ahead of Week 1, per Mark Kaboly of The Athletic. (The Athletic)

Fantasy Impact:

As Kaboly writes, "Unless Trubisky gets hurt or plays terribly in camp and the preseason, it’s difficult to imagine a scenario where he doesn’t start the season as the No. 1. How long he stays there will depend on how he plays." Although Kenny Pickett is waiting in the wings and certainly represents Pittsburgh's future, the team seems to be in no rush to deploy him. Pickett will open the year as Trubisky's backup and only see reps if the former Bear and Bill struggles or gets hurt.
