Chicago Bears DFS Spin
Mitchell Trubisky will get the start Sunday night against the Packers. Nagy told reporters Trubisky is “extremely prepared” to take over at quarterback in the lifeless Chicago offense. Trubisky started the season well enough, with five touchdowns on 432 passing yards in the first couple games. He was then benched in Week 3 against Atlanta and hasn’t thrown a pass since. He’ll replace Nick Foles (hip), who is listed as doubtful, in an unenviable matchup against Green Bay’s stellar secondary. Anyone starting Trubisky in superflex formats should consider the potential for an in-game benching for Tyler Bray. Trubisky under center makes every Chicago receiver unplayable except for Allen Robinson.
Green Bay Packers DFS Spin
Aaron Rodgers completed 27-of-38 passes for 311 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Packers’ Week 11 loss to the Colts. The Colts defense has played well after multiple offseason acquisitions, but Rodgers had a good shot at winning. A beautiful moon ball to Marques Valdes-Scantling and other ridiculous throws sent Green Bay to overtime, but MVS later fumbled, giving the Colts an easy game-winning overtime win. Rodgers’ QB1 status and MVP consideration is here to stay. He looked just as sharp as usual. Despite a very difficult fantasy matchup, Rodgers will be a top-10 option against the Bears next Sunday.
