Mitch Trubisky's historic day against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rewarded every fantasy owner who started him in their season-long leagues or DFS lineups. 


Naturally, that six-touchdown performance sent several fantasy football owners scrambling to the waiver wire to scoop him up. However, it's certainly worth questioning whether Trubisky is really a viable fantasy option. 


Well, it's pretty hard to tell right now, but the forecast doesn't look too great.

The sophomore quarterback's performance against woeful Tampa can't be taken at face value, especially since he recorded a measly 6.60 fantasy points against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.


Even if he did turn over a new leaf, it's still hard to trust him on a weekly basis until proven otherwise. That's why the next few weeks will be the ultimate litmus test for the young signal-caller. 


Trubisky also has one of the toughest remaining schedules of any fantasy quarterback, and it's by a wide margin. If he can produce against the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and Jets over the next three weeks, he may prove himself as a viable option for the remainder of the season. 

And hey, he's doing better than Aaron Rodgers right now, so there's that too.
