Summary

Glennon was signed to a deal that paid him 18.5 million dollars guaranteed, but he is not guaranteed of being the Week 1 starter. The Bears should err on the side of not rushing #2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky, but that goes against the recent trend in the NFL of starting first-round quarterbacks as soon as possible. If Glennon does win the training camp and preseason and start Week 1, his fantasy value will still likely be minimal. The Bears have no true #1 receiver and should seek to rely on Jordan Howard and the running game as the engine of the offense. Glennon also has a high risk of being pulled after a brutal opening schedule of Atlanta, at Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, at Green Bay. Glennon is a bottom of the barrel fantasy quarterback - if he wins the job. That is looking less likely after he was severely outplayed by rookie Mitchell Trubisky in the first preseason game.

Bears | Mike Glennon the strong favorite (Wed Aug 16, 11:06 AM) - Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon is the strong favorite to open the season as the starter based on everything the team has said, in the opinion of beat writer Brad Biggs.

Our View: Glennon should be the starter at the beginning of the regular season. The team spent a lot of money to add him in free agency earlier this year. However, we don't think Glennon finishes the season as the starter. At some point, rookie first-round pick Mitchell Trubisky should take over. He's the future of the team and has looked great so far in the preseason.

Bears | Mike Glennon still the starter? (Thu Aug 10, 11:44 PM) - Chicago Bears head coach John Fox said Thursday, Aug. 10, that he won't change QB Mike Glennon's position on the quarterback depth chart after one preseason game.

Bears | Ugly line for Mike Glennon (Thu Aug 10, 09:22 PM) - Chicago Bears QB Mike Glennon completed two of his eight pass attempts for 20 yards and had an interception returned for a touchdown in a preseason game against the Denver Broncos Thursday, Aug. 10.

Our View: To make things worse, Mitchell Trubisky was flawless for a good part of his time in the game. The Bears may have a quarterback controversy on their hands already. If this continues, expect Trubisky to play very soon, maybe even in Week 1 vs. Atlanta.
