Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will have a favorable matchup against a Patriots defense that is allowing the ninth most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Burton has 15 catches for 199 yards and three touchdowns this season and has been utilized all over the field. Burton has been the beneficiary of head coach Matt Nagy's favorite play in the red zone; an RPO shovel pass that opens a crease to the end zone. Burton is a top-12 option in fantasy among tight ends and should be active against a New England defense that has allowed four touchdowns to tight ends this season.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton ended up with four receptions, 23 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.
Fantasy Spin: Burton hasn't posted huge number, but he has three total touchdowns, including scores in each of the past two outings. He remains a decent TE2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 7 against the New England Patriots.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will have a tough matchup against a Dolphins defense that has not allowed a touchdown to opposing tight ends yet this season. They have not allowed more than 52 receiving yards to a single tight end this season and Burton's has only 11 receptions through four games played. The Bears do utilize Burton in creative ways within their offense but his fantasy value for Week 6 will be volatile at best. Burton will be a touchdown-dependent TE2 option in most fantasy formats.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught only two passes but racked up 86 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown in the Bears 48-10 win in Week 4. Burton was wide open to get the Bears on the board early for the touchdown and they never looked back. Despite the lack of targets, Burton has been able to compensate with some big plays. The Bears will have a bye next week but Burton will be on back on the TE1/2 radar in Week 6 against the Dolphins.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught two passes for 86 yards and one touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 4.
Fantasy Spin: Burton is starting to become a bigger factor in the passing game and has improved his receiving yards each week. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end against most opponents.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will have an excellent matchup, especially in PPR formats, as the Bears take on the Buccaneers in Week 4. Burton, through three games, has nine catches for 90 yards with one touchdown and has been utilized all over the field. But Burton will go up against a Buccaneers defense that was brutalized by the Steelers tight end Vance McDonald in Week 3 and has allowed the second most fantasy points to the position. They have already surrendered 23 receptions to tight ends and the Bears should try and exploit that matchup. Burton has excellent value in Week 4 and should be very active in the passing game.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton finished with 55 yards on four catches in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Fantasy Spin: Burton's production thus far has been underwhelming, although he saved his fantasy day last week with a touchdown and set a season high in receiving yards in this one. Given the current landscape at tight end, owners likely have little choice but to hope Mitch Trubisky can start showing some signs of improvement soon. Burton figures to be a low-end TE1 option in Week 4 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught four passes for 55 yards in the Bears 16-14 comeback win on the road against the Cardinals. Burton came up with some excellent catches in traffic as quarterback Mitch Trubisky is slowly beginning to look his way. Burton has disappointed slightly through the first three games after many expected him to be a target-monster in the revamped Bears offense. But the unit is still a work in progress and Burton continues to make positive plays when given the chance. The Bears will have to air it out next week against the Buccaneers and Burton's ranking will be on the rise.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will go up against a Cardinals defense in Week 3 that has already allowed two touchdowns to opposing tight ends through two games. Burton scored his first touchdown in a Bears uniform in Week 2 on a nifty shovel pass from quarterback Mitch Trubisky in the red zone. Burton even took a snap from the wildcat and picked up a first down with his legs during the game. His lack of targets is concerning for fantasy owners but Burton's versatility makes him an intriguing player moving forward. He can score catching the football, running the football and even throwing the football (see: Super Bowl XXXIX). The arrow is pointing up for Burton, who has a shot at top-10 tight end status for Week 3.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught four passes for 20 yards, including a touchdown in the Bears 24-17 win over the Seahawks in Week 2.

Fantasy Spin: The touchdown was nice for Burton, but he still has just five catches and 35 yards through two games on 10 targets. He'll need to bump up those totals before becoming a regular outside of the deepest of fantasy formats. The Bears travel to meet the Cardinals in Week 3.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton hopes to register more than one catch when the Bears take on the Seahawks this Monday night. Burton totaled only 15 yards in the Bears Week 1 loss to the Packers and Green Bay seemed intent on bottling up the new free agent acquisition. A big part of head coach Matt Nagy's offense involves an athletic, pass-catching tight end and Burton is a perfect fit. But the Bears offense will have to improve and will take on a Seattle defense that allowed the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends in 2017. The Seahawks defense has been stripped of some elite players over the years and there is an opportunity for Burton to make a splash. Burton has the potential to reach top-10 status among tight ends in Week 2.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught one of his six targets for 15 yards in a 24-23 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 1.
Fantasy Spin: Only Allen Robinson was targeted more than Burton, so there should be better days ahead for the tight end. That being said, it looks like an adjustment period between he and Mitchell Trubisky is going to be needed, so you might want to find an alternative starter for Week 2.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught only one pass for 15 yards as the Bears lost late to the Packers 24-23. Burton's lone catch was a beauty in the first half to bring the Bears into the red zone but quarterback Mitch Trubisky was unable to connect with the promising tight end the rest of the game. Chicago's offense will certainly be featuring Burton moving forward but the unit failed to generate any production in the second half. Burton will try and bounce back next week against the Seahawks on Monday night.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton is expected to be heavily involved in the Bears offensive game plan Sunday night against the Packers. Burton was signed via free agency with the expectation that he would have an expanded role in head coach Matt Nagy's new offense. Burton has looked fantastic in the preseason and an early favorite target for quarterback Mitch Trubisky. At first glance it appears that he will have a tough matchup against a Packers defense that allowed the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends in 2017. Nonetheless, Burton is a TE1 option for Week 1 and could lead the team in targets to begin the season.

Burton was used in motion on several plays out of the slot, including an excellent sideline catch for 12 yards for a first down.

I'm more of a one-on-one intimate type of communicator. I was a quarterback in high school. I had a great quarterbacks coach who taught me how to be a leader and how all the eyes are on you. Ever since then, I kind of ran with it.'
