Mitch Trubisky is Steelers 1st string QB on their depth chart

Mitch Trubisky was placed as the first-team QB on the Steelers' first official depth chart.

Fantasy Impact

Trubisky was signed by Pittsburgh this offseason after serving as Josh Allen's backup in Buffalo a season ago. The now 6th year player out of UNC will get a chance to revitalize a career that opened with him being selected second overall in 2017. He will most likely be leaning on his weapons heavily as the Steelers do what they can to help him be successful. Trubisky does not offer too much upside considering he is bound to be replaced by first-round pick Kenny Pickett at some point. In Superflex leagues, he is perhaps a depth piece but most likely does not belong on your fantasy roster otherwise.

Mitchell Trubisky running as the first-team QB

According to Alex Kozora of Steelers Depot, QB Mitchell Trubisky was working with the first-team offense during practice at Pittsburgh Steelers training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Trubisky spent last season backing up QB Josh Allen in Buffalo before getting a second chance to start in the NFL with Pittsburgh. In Chicago, Trubisky threw for 10,609 yards and 64 touchdowns across four seasons. The Steelers are taking a cheap chance on the former No. 2 pick revitalizing his career while they have a new first-round pick in QB Kenny Pickett waiting in the wings. Trubisky has been a borderline QB2 in fantasy throughout his career and, with a strong receiving group in Pittsburgh, should be on the radar for fantasy managers in superflex formats.

Mitchell Trubisky expected to open as starting QB

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

Mitchell Trubisky impresses with first team in practices

Mitchell Trubisky received all of the first-team snaps in the Steelers' spring practices, but head coach Mike Tomlin stated all three QBs on the roster have a chance at the starting job.

Fantasy Impact

The 27-year-old is the most experienced in the QB group, including Mason Rudolph and Kenny Pickett, and he seemed to run offensive coordinator Mike Canada's motion-heavy offense fluidly. He displayed accuracy with his deep passing, including landing a perfect throw to rookie George Pickens. His current ADP is 196, and he is being taken as the 31st QB. He could see a slight boost with a solid receiving corps if he is named the starter, but fantasy managers should still look at him as a low-end QB2.

Mitchell Trubisky agrees to two-year deal with Pittsburgh

Mitchell Trubisky has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Trubisky is now set to replace the retired Ben Roethlisberger under center. The former second overall pick is expected to be the starter and has a solid wide receiver duo to throw to in Dionte Johnson and Chase Claypool. He appeared in only six games for Buffalo last season, completing six of eight passes for a total of 43 yards. Most of his fantasy value will be in superflex leagues as of now.
