All-Pro level safety
Number don’t reflect his importance, as Bears defense has had easy opponents and been good in two games without him.

When Jones is off the field, the explosive pass rate jumps to 17.2 percent from 13 percent. Eagles give up 8.18 YPA with him off the field, 6.66 with him on the field
Deep ball specialist, unlikely to play many snaps.
The biggest concern with Trubisky is since the shoulder injury he has yet to attempt over 30 passes in a game, he has been rushing less (no more than 23 yards), and his yards per attempt are down. However, it is now the fifth week since he has returned and his play has been getting better since. It’s the playoffs, so the time for protecting him is gone. He comes in at 6,200, so you don’t get a discount in price, but he will be under-owned on the slate. He makes for a nice GPP play off the chalk Luck and Watson in a matchup versus Philadelphia’s backup secondary. Outside of the Redskins (they don’t count), the Eagles have allowed every quarterback but one to throw for over 300 yards, and in that one game Eli went for 276 yards. Trubisky has rushing upside and a secondary that can be taken advantage of and is a good low owned GPP play.
