From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): His team somehow won despite him save for one good throw and pocket step-up to set up that game winning kick, but Trubisky's value continues to drop. If he doesn't light up Washington this week, we can drop him in all 1QB leagues if we haven't already.

Week 3: at Washington Redskins

All QB vs WAS

FBG says: Good matchup. Sadly, Mitchell Trubisky has failed to make the third-year jump many had hoped for here in 2019. In week one against the Green Bay Packers, Trubisky threw for just 228 yards on 45 pass attempts, en-route to a 3 point offensive performance for the Bears. Somehow, it got even worse for Chicago in week two with just 120 yards through the air against the Denver Broncos. Trubisky's consistent failures to get the ball out on time and make the throws expected of an NFL starter have hampered Chicago's aerial attack to start the 2019 season. The top two targets in Chicago's offense are evident through two games: wide receiver Allen Robinson and running back Tarik Cohen. Robinson's pure talent as a pass-catcher ensures he will always be a focus of this offense through the air. Trubisky frequently looks his way in the highest-leverage situations throughout the game. Cohen, on the other hand, is an exceptional playmaker after the catch. Head coach and play-caller Matt Nagy consistently involves Cohen in the offense in unconventional ways thanks to his rare ability to make defenders miss. Aside from Robinson and Cohen, tight end, Trey Burton returned to the lineup in week two after missing the season opener with a groin injury. Burton was only able to play 43-percent of snaps in his 2019 debut because of the ailment, but as his health improves, so will his production. Chicago's offensive line has unexpectedly struggled to start the 2019 season. FootballGuys' offensive line analyst, Matt Bitonti, ranks the Bears' front-five as one of the league's best in pass protection, but through two games the results have been poor. Unless Chicago's offensive line rights the ship, their aerial attack will almost certainly continue to struggle. Even if the issues up-front are resolved, Trubisky's lack of development as a passer is cause for concern for the Bears' passing offense. The first two weeks of the 2019 season have not been kind to the Washington Redskins. Following two bouts with top-tier division rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys, the Washington Redskins defense ranks amongst the league's worst. The Redskins' defensive front was depleted early in week one against the Philadelphia Eagles, as interior defenders, Caleb Brantley, and Jonathan Allen went down with injuries. The status of both players is in doubt for this week three bout with the Chicago Bears. Allen is certainly an impactful absence from the pass-rush, but even his presence likely would not be enough to bring this unit up to a league-average level. At just 20 total pressures on opposing quarterbacks, the production from the Washington pass-rush ranks 4th-worst in the entire NFL. Additionally, in the secondary, there is little good news to report. Three previously-strong pass defenders in Landon Collins, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and Josh Norman have all struggled mightily in the opening weeks of the 2019 season. All three players have lengthy resumes as above-average players in coverage. However, the fact that all three players are struggling at the same time, with two still integrating into a new defensive scheme in 2019, may signal a systemic issue in the Washington secondary. The Redskins have allowed the second-most passing touchdowns in the NFL through two weeks. It would be tough for the Chicago Bears to dream up a better matchup to right the proverbial ship and get the passing offense back on track.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs DEN (16 / 27 / 120 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)

Mitchell Trubisky struggled for the second consecutive week in a win against the Denver Broncos. The Bears kept Trubisky's throws close to the vest, with Trubisky's downfield targets only coming out of necessity in a comeback attempt. Fortunately for Trubisky, he was able to step up and make a couple throws to win the game on the final drive, including a ball across the middle to an inexplicably wide-open Allen Robinson to set the Bears up for a game-winning field goal. Trubisky otherwise struggled, missing open throws and looking skittish in the pocket. Trubisky's pocket awareness was lacking as he looked indecisive and struggled with accuracy under pressure. The Bears have a championship-caliber defense, but Trubisky needs to play better than 4.4 yards per attempt for the Bears to play at a high level and to support the fantasy prospects of Allen Robinson.

2019 Week 1 vs GB (26 / 45 / 228 / 0 / 1 pass, 3 / 11 / 0 rush)

Mitchell Trubisky struggled against the revamped Green Bay Packers defense in the opening game of the NFL season. He struggled throughout, with nine out of the first ten drives finishing in punts while the other was a field goal. His best success was throwing to Allen Robinson on the perimeter for two tight catches, but otherwise, he was ineffective. Trubisky threw a bad interception intended for Robinson in the end zone that he both stared down and threw off his back foot, allowing the safety to make an easy interception. He also threw multiple passes inaccurately along the sideline, forcing receivers out of bounds on catches. He was not helped, by drops from Robinson and Tarik Cohen, but Trubisky's struggles in his progressions in the pocket and his inaccuracy are his own. Things do not get easier for Trubisky in week two against a good Denver defense, but he will, fortunately, have 10 days to regroup.
