So, today is a list of Quarterbacks that I think have a shot to finish in the top 10 in points. Of course, some of these names won't even make the top 20 in mock drafts.
Mitchell Trubisky - So, you may think I'm crazy. So, why would I even think a guy with a sub 30 QBR, and a sub 60% completion percentage, can possibly have a good season?
In a rookie season, the numbers don't always paint the full picture. No doubt, Mitch did struggle mightily getting the ball down the field, and creating chunk plays. However, he did show some major flashes of athleticism, accuracy, arm strength, and toughness.
Couple that with the fact that he had the worst receiving core in the league; and a coaching staff that was running an archaic system around him. You can see why the arrow is pointing up for him in his second year. Furthermore, he's getting a HUGE upgrade in his receiving core.
Allen Robinsonis a stud! He's only 2 years removed from a 1400 yard season, and he's only 24 years old. Allen will stretch the field vertically for Mitch and open up all his throws between the tackles.Trey Burton is a top 10 TE. He was behind the 8 ball with Zach Ertz in front of him in Philly; but he still managed to ball out. Now he's going to a coach with Philly ties, who will feature him and let him be himself. Plus Mitch is getting major speed with Taylor Gabriel. This unit will go from being the worst in the league to extremely viable.
The icing is Matt Nagy. As the offensive coordinator in Kansas City, he ran lots of RPOs and inside vertical shots. Therefore, this fast tempo system will cater perfectly to Mitch's strengths in timing and anticipation. Matt is going to form and offense similar to the system Mitch played with in UNC. And, he will do what it takes to unleash the full potential of the former Number #2 overall pick.
Drafting Mitch in your Fantasy Draft, can let you focus on filling up your Draft Board with late round high upside fliers instead of the mid tier QB.
