3 Mitchell Trubisky QB Replacements in Fantasy Football if He's Injured

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has been surprisingly rewarding his fantasy owners on a weekly basis. Unfortunately, there's a decent chance he won't suit up on Thanksgiving thanks to the shoulder injury he suffered against the Vikings in Week 11. Luckily, there are a few streaming options that could reward any Trubisky owner in need of a fill-in.


Here are three solid streamers Trubisky owners should target if he's unable to go.

Any of the two Tampa Bay quarterbacks are a risky play, but the waiver wire is thin on talent at this point in the season. Winston does have a good matchup against a 49ers' secondary that has yielded at least 19.5 FanDuel fantasy points to seven of the 10 starting quarterbacks and allowed multiple passing touchdowns in nine out of the 10 games they've played this season. As long as he's smart with the ball, Winston has potential to post big numbers in Week 12. 

2. Joe Flacco/Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens still haven't announced their starter for this weekend against the Oakland Raiders, but either quarterback is an excellent streaming option. The Raiders' defense has been downright terrible this season, even making Nick Mullens look like the second coming of Joe Montana two weeks ago. Jackson and Flacco are both much more talented than Mullens and should put up a solid amount of fantasy points, especially Jackson with the threat to take off and run.

Risky? Yes, but Mayfield's matchup is too juicy not to take a chance on. The Cincinnati Bengals have been absolutely terrible against quarterbacks, allowing the most FanDuel fantasy points per game (24.4). Mayfield, who has played well the last two weeks under new offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchen, has all the tools around him to post a decent stat line in this one.
