Out of all the starting quarterbacks in the second half of the season, Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has been one of the better value play in DFS. He helped the Bears score 30-plus points three-straight games, before last week’s clunker against Green Bay. What will he do in his second-ever playoff start? Let’s break it down below.

Fantasy Football analysis: Bears QB Mitch Trubisky, $5300

Heading into Super Wild Card Weekend, Mitch Trubisky is one of the lower-priced starting quarterbacks. The only other starting quarterbacks valued lower than Trubisky are Alex Smith ($5100), John Wolford ($4900), and Taylor Heinicke ($4100). The former first-round pick had a good streak of games, where he scored 25, 14.5, and 24.6 fantasy points at an average reasonable price tag ($5600).

However, last week, he had one of his lowest scoring performances with 11.3 fantasy points against the Green Bay Packers. On Sunday afternoon, he’ll be facing a Saints defense that is only giving up 234.9 passing yards per game and is ranked seventh against QBs (OPRK).
