Avoid Mitch Trubisky At All Costs For NFL Fantasy Football In 2022

The guy can’t play a lick, that’s as concise as I can be in this article. But, fine, I will continue with reasoning and all that. Mitch Trubisky is just not draftable for fantasy. Please just don’t do it. You have a better shot at drafting a backup QB and him being more productive to your team. Injuries happen all the time, so yes, planning for an injury to happen instead of drafting Mitch Trubisky might be the smarter option.

Before anyone starts overreacting, a Steelers’ fan already has said, do not rely on the Steelers WRs for fantasy production. Has anyone thought about why he said that? Maybe because Mitch Trubisky…sucks? I even like the weapons that the Steelers have. Najee Harris will be nasty as a fantasy RB, and Diontae Johnson and George Pickens are great WRs. Chase Claypool is very hit-or-miss in a lot of ways, but he’s not horrible. Pat Freiermuth has a bright future as a fantasy TE. All that depends on Mitch Trubisky.

This is the same guy that literally can’t throw to his left side. He hasn’t passed 3,250 yards in any of his seasons in the NFL. He’s only thrown more than 18 TDs once in his career. In his last season as a starter, he lost his job for a time to Nick Foles. I say last season as a starter because in 2021 he spent that year as a backup to the defending QB1 for fantasy football, Josh Allen.

I mean, are we sure he even is the starter for the Steeler’s week 1? Sure, the Steelers signed him to a 2-year contract worth $14 million total. But, they also took Kenny Pickett in the 1st round of the 2022 NFL Draft. There has to be some competition for the starting job. Even though Mitch Trubisky is sought as a “bridge QB,” I just don’t think Trubisky is good enough to be the starter. If he does start, how long will he start before Pickett gets the nod? Some are rolling their eyes at me, but do you remember how bad Trubisky was with the Bears? If you do, it was horrendous. If you don’t, that’s my point, his performances aren’t memorable in a good way.

To me, Trubisky is just not worth it. One, you don’t even know if he’s going to be the week 1 starter for the Steelers. Two, do you think he starts the entire year? Three, is he even valuable to your fantasy team? I mean, you have to depend on the guy to GET the ball to the weapons, despite how lucrative they are. Are we sure he can even do that? Kenny Pickett hasn’t played a lick of NFL football, and I trust that guy more than Trubisky right now.

To me, there’s no point in having Trubisky on your fantasy team. I’m not even sure he’s worth a one-week waiver wire pick-up. (That was an over-exaggeration, but my point stands.) Just do yourself a favor and don’t bother. Let some other poor souls try their luck. Now, Kenny Pickett is interesting, though. He’s a guy that might be on the waiver wire and might come alive during the fantasy playoffs. Definitely keep your eye on that.
