Chicago Bears DFS Spin
Mitchell Trubisky completed 15-of-21 passes for 202 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Bears’ Week 15 win over the Vikings. It’s not because he’s good, but Trubisky is 5-2 as a starter this season. He’s been better than Nick Foles at least. On Sunday, Trubisky spent most of the time handing the ball off to David Montgomery who had a career-high 146 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries. When the ball was in Trubisky’s hands, he was mostly good but did have a brutal pick in the red zone on a forced 50/50 ball. Trubisky will be a QB2 streamer against the injured Jaguars for those willing to ride the chaos.
Jacksonville Jaguars DFS Spin
Jaguars coach Doug Marrone wouldn’t name a starting quarterback for Week 16 against Chicago. Gardner Minshew and Mike Glennon are splitting reps in practice. Whoever has the best week between the two will start. Minshew is coming off a blowout loss to the Ravens where he took five sacks and lost a fumble, while Glennon was benched in Week 14 after averaging 3.7 YPA. Regardless who starts, Jacksonville skill players should be avoided outside of James Robinson. With the Jets winning in Week 15, the Jaguars have a 74% chance at the No. 1 overall pick.
