Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton is going to have 'a really productive year' in 2020, according to Stephen Holder of The Athletic.
Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich says that he envisions tight end Trey Burton stepping into the role that Eric Ebron had the past two seasons. Burton and Ebron are different styles of tight end, but Reich believes the team will still be able to take advantage of Burton's strengths in his role as the No. 2 tight end on a team that has made use of multiple tight ends over the past few years. Ebron, for example, averaged six targets per game over his two years with the Colts. If Burton approaches a number close to that, he could finish as a fantasy TE2 and have some streaming upside during bye weeks. He could wind up being even more valuable if Jack Doyle misses time. Still, Burton's own injury concerns are pretty massive, making him a risky fantasy pick, though upside is there as a late-round option.
Indianapolis Colts tight end Trey Burton -- who the team just signed -- said that he had been misdiagnosed with an injury last offseason while playing for the Chicago Bears, leading him to rush back to the field. Burton had hip surgery in December and says that he's four months into a six month recovery window from that, and the expectation seems to be that Burton will be healthy heading into the 2020 season. He's still expected to play a secondary role to tight end Jack Doyle and hold little fantasy value, but Burton's statement about last year's injury could explain why Burton could never get going in the eight games he played in 2019.
Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton (hip, sports hernia) said Friday, April 24, he was 'misdiagnosed' and rushed back from a sports hernia in 2019 with the Chicago Bears, implying that it resulted in hip surgery and his release from the Bears.
Fantasy Spin: Burton caught only 14 passes for 84 yards in eight games last season, and presuming he's ready for the season as expected, he'll vie with Jack Doyle for tight-end targets this season. Just don't count him in standard fantasy leagues.
Updating previous stories, free-agent TE Trey Burton (Bears) and WR Marcus Johnson (Colts) officially signed undisclosed deals with the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, April 23.
The Indianapolis Colts have signed tight end Trey Burton, who spent the past two seasons with the Chicago Bears. Limited to just eight games in 2019, Burton finished with 14 catches for 84 yards after a 2018 campaign that saw him grab 54 passes for 569 yards and six scores. A healthy Burton can still be a quality NFL tight end, though he's unlikely to have the same kind of role with the Colts that the player he's ostensibly replacing, Eric Ebron, had. Expect Jack Doyle to be the clear TE1 in Indy, with Burton getting a few looks per game. Without a Doyle injury, Burton won't have much of a path to fantasy relevance.
Free-agent TE Trey Burton (Bears) agreed to terms on an undisclosed contract with the Indianapolis Colts Wednesday, April 22, according to his agency.
Fantasy Spin: Burton will help to replace the free-agent loss of TE Eric Ebron and work alongside Jack Doyle. QB Philip Rivers has long loved throwing to tight ends, including Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry. Burton could be worth a late-round pick as a low-end TE1 depending on practice reps between him and Doyle this offseason.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton was officially released Friday, April 17.
TE Trey Burton (hip), who is expected to be released by the Chicago Bears, should be ready well before training camp begins after having off-season hip surgery. Since the Bears will still owe him $4 million after his release, it isn't expected that he will cost another team very much, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton will be released in the near future, according to a source.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hip) and LB Roquan Smith (pectoral) are on track in their rehab and should be ready for training camp, according to general manager Ryan Pace.
