More Use of Bigger Receivers

Trubisky’s inability to hit open receivers has been a problem. Although it may not be a guaranteed way to totally fix the problem, Nagy should consider using the big receivers on their roster more often. We all know that Allen Robinson II was the most targeted receiver in the Bears’ offense in 2019. Robinson finished the season with 98 catches for 1,147 yards and seven touchdowns (all team-highs). At six-feet-two, 220 pounds, Robinson was a big target for Trubisky, and the same can be made with Chicago’s other pass catchers.

Cordarrelle Patterson, Javon Wims, and Riley Ridley all have the similar build of Robinson, and all of them have the potential to be just as productive as Robinson. With the departure of Gabriel, these three big-bodied receivers should have more opportunities on the field and should make Trubisky’s job in the passing game a bit easier.
