  • SportsGrid Staff


The 2017 NFL Draft is taking place in Philadelphia, PA, and we’re giving you fantasy analysis on everything from expected roles to bust potential.

Corey Parson (@TheFantasyExec), Emory Hunt (@FBallGameplan), and Mike Blewitt (@mikeblewitt) give their instant fantasy take on Trubisky’s NFL potential here, courtesy of the FNTSY Sports Network:

<h2>Mitchell Trubisky 2017 Fantasy Outlook</h2>

Jake Ciely, who has finished in the top four for fantasy football accuracy the last three years, wrote the following about Trubisky with the Chicago Bears:

First surprise, and it’s a doozy. Bears gave up a bunch to move up one spot and grab their quarterback of the future. As mentioned in the pre-draft write-up, Trubisky only has one year starting in college and ideally needs a year to develop. I would expect Mike Glennon to be the Bears starting quarterback in 2017 with Trubisky learning behind him. Obviously, that means Trubisky isn’t draft worthy in redraft leagues. For dynasty and keeper leagues, Trubisky has a high ceiling with his mobility, athletic ability and a NFL arm. He also has high bust potential. Trubisky could become a QB1 in Fantasy with the right develop and work on his mechanics or he could bust and never be worthy of a roster spot.

<h2>Mitchell Trubisky 2017 Mock Draft Evaluation</h2>

And Jayson Braddock, in his mock draft for SportsGrid, evaluated Trubisky thusly prior to the draft:

6) New York Jets – QB / Mitch Trubisky / UNC – After seeing the Bills move up ahead of them and selecting a potential stud, young quarterback, the Jets decide that it may be time to spend early on a future face of the franchise. The Jets could look around the division and see Tom Brady, an improved Ryan Tannehill under Adam Gase and now the Bills with Tyrod Taylor and take it as a kick in the pants. This moves gives them a potential franchise quarterback of their own and if Christian Hackenberg does develop, then they’ll have future draft commodities in the then surplus of young, quarterbacking talent. The Jets didn’t mind rolling the dice on Mark Sanchez who came out of USC with limited starts. Could they be tempted to trying it again?
