Bills get new backup QB in Mitchell Trubisky, fantasy impact


The Buffalo Bills have a new backup quarterback, agreeing to terms with ex-Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky Thursday, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.


Trubisky, the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, spent four years with the Bears, starting 50 games. He made the 2018 Pro Bowl and finished that year as fantasy’s QB15. He’ll serve as Josh Allen’s backup with the Bills.

Bills add QB Mitchell Trubisky

Fantasy slant: Insert all of the quarterback competition jokes. Trubisky now accepts the role as a backup quarterback in the NFL. This is actually a great move for the Bills, who had nothing behind Allen at the quarterback position. Trubisky enjoyed a very strong late-season run in 2020 and will now backup Allen in Buffalo. And given how reckless Allen can play at times and how physical he is as a runner, having a viable backup with mobility is very important, especially for a team with Super Bowl aspirations. — Adam Pfeifer
