Steelers top fantasy football prospects for the 2022 season
Steelers QB Mitch Trubisky
Trubisky will have some fantasy value this season, but more in a backup fantasy role, not as a fantasy starter. That said, if Trubisky proves all his doubters wrong, he could be a valuable addition to your fantasy team.
How it plays out is anyone’s guess. Nonetheless, if you need a quarterback in the late rounds of your re-draft league, he could be a sleeper selection. If he does decent, It will mean more bench time for Kenny Pickett, at least in 2022, allowing him to develop for 2023 or 2024.
In dynasty, again, you’re not drafting him to be a number one quarterback, although he could work in a Superflex dynasty league if you’re lacking other options or if he goes on a roll. The decision to take Trubiskly is not on how well he plays in 2022. If you pick up Trubisky, keep in mind his real goal in Pittsburgh. He wants to prove he can be a starting quarterback in the NFL again. Plus, he only has a two-year contract.
Even if he does well in Pittsburgh, he may move on to another team that needs a change at the quarterback position. He does not have to be spectacular; he only needs to show his a capable starter. In theory, in 2024 and beyond, he could rebound and become a top 10 quarterback, or worse, a backup if your starting quarterback gets injured.
