As we gear up to the start of the NFL season, Football Absurdity is going to bring you a comprehensive breakdown of every notable player that will be available in fantasy football drafts. When you don’t see us talking about Christine Michael or Mike Davis, don’t get mad at us for neglecting your favorite sleeper. Get mad at yourself for having bad taste in football players. If you are interested in the unknown when you select your quarterbacks, then let this Mitchell Trubisky player profile teach you.
When looking at my player profiles, It is important to note that I think quarterback play is replaceable for low-end QB1’s. So when I evaluate quarterback prospects, I am looking for top-three potential. This will skew my perspective and analysis. Because I am gambling on upside, I tend to draft two quarterbacks and the quarterbacks I draft tend to be younger.
Current ADP: Number 26 among quarterbacks. Number 168 overall.

Overview: Mitchell Trubisky is an NFL quarterback. Outside of that, I’m not sure how much we know about him. Many people think he could be this year’s Jared Goff. Like Goff in 2017, Trubisky is going to be operating a completely new system, complete with a shiny new head coach, offensive coordinator and receiving corp. That doesn’t really matter if he can’t play the position, and we don’t know if he can yet.
Strategy: Having said all that, his current ADP is absurd. Right now, he is behind Tyrod Taylor, Case Keenum and Eli Manning in his current draft value. We don’t know what Trubisky is, but we do know those other guys aren’t that good. I love him as my late-round second quarterback lottery pick.
Ceiling: The Jared Goff comparisons prove true, and he ends the year as a QB1 in a newly revamped Bears offense.
Floor: The Jared Goff comparisons prove true. Unfortunately, he ends up being 2016 Jared Goff and ends the year as one of the worst fantasy quarterbacks in a newly revamped Jeff Fisher offense.
