Mitchell Trubisky Week 3 Outlook - Bears at Falcons

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 24th 2020, 10:02am EDT

Trubisky has posted solid fantasy numbers through two weeks (QB14), but it hasn't all been pretty. He leads the league in bad pass percentage, as 38.9 percent of his throws have been considered poor. The Falcons have allowed 133.8 fantasy points per game to opponents, which is the highest in the league, as no other team is allowing more than 121.6 fantasy points per game. The problem with contemplating Trubisky is that he's so hot and cold. He played extremely well for the first half of last week's game, but fell apart in the second half, though one of his interceptions was on Allen Robinson. The good news is that this is the first game of the Bears that has a total of more than 44 points. Trubisky has played eight career games in a dome or retractable roof, though it hasn't changed much with his performance, as his completion percentage is static, while his touchdown to interception ratio is worse (7 passing touchdowns, 6 interceptions). The Falcons have played against Russell Wilson and Dak Prescott over the first two weeks, so of course their numbers are going to look putrid. Going back to last year, they were slightly below average in every major statistical category, and they lost their top cornerback in the offseason, so that surely didn't help. Trubisky is the definition of a risk/reward QB2 because it shouldn't surprise anyone if he finishes as a top-10 quarterback this week, but it also shouldn't if he finishes outside the top-20.
