QB - PIT
Week 14 Outlook
Mitch Trubisky said he wants to be thoughtfully aggressive against Patriots on Thursday.
With Kenny Pickett (ankle) undergoing surgery, it will be Trubisky starting. After taking over for Pickett last Sunday, he completed 11-of-17 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown. It will be a tough matchup against a Patriots defense that has been playing well the past month or so.
Mitch Trubisky is expected to start at quarterback when the Steelers face the Patriots in Week 14.
Kenny Pickett (ankle) was unable to finish Sunday's game against the Cardinals and will now miss "a couple of weeks," according to Schefter. That puts Trubisky in line to face New England on Thursday night. He's not a reliable fantasy option right now, though Najee Harris, Jaylen Warren, and George Pickens should continue to warrant consideration for your lineups.
Mitch Trubisky completed 11 of his 17 passes for 117 yards and a touchdown while adding five rushing yards and a lost fumble in a 24-10 loss to the Cardinals in Week 13.
Starting quarterback Kenny Pickett injured his ankle in the second quarter and did not return, pushing Trubisky into service. The veteran's lone touchdown pass went to Diontae Johnson in the fourth quarter. Trubisky would presumably be Pittsburgh's starter in Week 14 against the Patriots if Pickett's ankle prevents him from taking the field. Stay tuned.
Mitch Trubisky completed 15 of 27 passes for 138 yards and a touchdown with one interception in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Jaguars.
After starting QB Kenny Pickett (ribs) was knocked out of the game just before halftime, Trubisky stepped in the rest of the way for the Steelers. Trubisky did throw two picks, but he made some nice plays as well, including a 22-yard scoring strike to WR George Pickens. If Pickett is forced to miss any more time, the Steelers will not be afraid to turn the offense over their experienced backup.
Mitch Trubisky completed three of five passes for 18 yards, zero scores, and zero turnovers in the Steelers' 30-6 loss to the Texans.
Trubisky replaced Kenny Pickett (knee) at the end of the third quarter and played the rest of the game. It's worth noting that Pickett was ruled out quickly, and his injury was severe enough that fantasy managers should keep an eye on his status over the next week. If Trubisky plays in Week 5, he'll be a mid-range QB3.
