Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught only two passes for 22 yards in the Bears 15-6 win over the Rams in Week 14. Burton came down with a huge 17-yard catch in the first half but the entire offense struggled because of quarterback Mitch Trubisky's inaccuracy. Burton got off to a promising start this season but now has only 11 receptions for 99 yards and zero touchdowns over his last five games. The Bears offense continues to add new wrinkles to its play-calling each week and, at this point, anyone on the roster is a candidate to score a touchdown. The red zone plays that went Burton's direction in the first half of the season have dissipated and his fantasy value continues to decline. Burton will be tough to trust in Week 15 against the Packers.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught two of his five targets for 22 yards in Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Fantasy Spin: Burton was able to keep himself fantasy-relevant for the first half of the season by finding the end zone on a fairly regular basis. That well has dried up over the last five contests, and the former Philadelphia Eagle has been almost useless in fantasy as a result. Even at a position in which owners are desperate for options, Burton will be hard to start in the fantasy playoffs the rest of the way.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will try and snap out of a month-long slump when he takes on a Rams defense in Week 14 that is allowing the ninth most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. Burton has failed to post a touchdown over his last four games and has only nine receptions for 77 yards during that span. Burton held an active role in the red zone offense during the first half of the season but has completely disappeared from the game plan. The return of quarterback Mitch Trubisky this Sunday night will certainly help and the fact that the Rams defense has allowed four touchdowns to tight ends since Week 7 makes for an intriguing matchup for fantasy owners. Burton is still a volatile play for Week 14 but this game against the Rams represents the best matchup the tight end has seen in over a month.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton didn't record a catch in Week 13.
Fantasy Spin: Burton has a couple of four-catch games, but he really hasn't been much of a factor the last six weeks. He has slipped into TE2 territory, and time is running out to put enough faith in him to start him.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton went catchless in the team's 30-27 overtime loss to the Giants. Burton was targeted only once and was completely non-existent in the game plan. Backup quarterback Chase Daniel has done a solid job in place of injured Mitch Trubisky but it has severely affected the fantasy output of the Bears offensive weapons. Burton now has only five catches for 37 yards over his last three games and has been held out of the end zone over his last five played. Burton's value will get a boost if Trubisky returns next week against the Rams.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will try to snap out of his three-game slump when the team takes on the Giants in Week 13. After a stretch in the season where he posted four touchdowns in five games, Burton has only nine catches for 77 yards over his last three played. Burton struggled last week against the Lions, missing assignments and losing a fumble that led to points for Detroit. This week Burton will go up against a Giants defense that is allowing the 16th fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends. But New York has been especially vulnerable over the past month, allowing 10-plus fantasy points to three tight ends over their last three games. The Bears would be wise to attack the Giants linebackers to move the chains and Burton could certainly aid in that area of the field. Nonetheless, Burton will be a touchdown-dependent fantasy option in Week 13 with backup quarterback Chase Daniel once again under center.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught four passes for 28 yards in the Bears victory over the Lions on Thanksgiving. It was not Burton's finest effort, losing a fumble early in the game that led to points for the Lions. The offense was limited with backup Chase Daniel at quarterback but Burton's production has nose-dived recently. He has only nine catches for 77 yards and zero touchdowns over his last three games after stretch where he caught four touchdowns in a five-game span. Burton fantasy value is trending downwards and may need to be benched if Daniel is forced back into action in Week 13 against the Giants.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught four passes for 28 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 12.
Fantasy Spin: Burton was targeted seven times against the Lions, which is the most in five games. He has still been held to under 40 yards in four of the last five games but could still be a low-end No. 1 tight end next week.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton has caught only one touchdown over his last four games after posting four scores in a five-game stretch. Burton has been used in a variety of ways and has been a integral part of the Bears red-zone offense. He will go up against a Lions defense that is allowing the 16th fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends and Burton himself caught only four passes for 40 yards two weeks ago. With the recent news that quarterback Mitch Trubisky is nursing a shoulder injury, Burton could thrive if the Bears decide to go with a more quick-hit offense in the passing game. Burton will be a low-end, top-12 play among tight ends in fantasy for Week 12.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught only one pass for nine yards in the Bears 25-20 win over the Vikings in Week 11. Burton was targeted only once and also had a huge reception negated by a penalty. The Vikings speed on defense kept Burton in the box to help out the running game and his fantasy output severely suffered. Burton has been an excellent option for the Bears in the red zone and will have a chance to bounce back next week against the Lions on Thanksgiving.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will go up against a Vikings defense that is allowing the 15th fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. Burton this season has 33 receptions, 411 yards and five touchdowns for a Bears offense that is vastly improved this season. There is plenty of focus coming into the game on second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky going up against a veteran Vikings defense and Burton could be the secret elixir to Trubisky's success. Burton's versatility in the pre-snap formations allow him to be used in multiple ways and the tight end also is a huge red zone target for the Bears offense. Burton has a shot at posting top-10 numbers among tight ends for Week 11.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton posted four grabs for 40 yards in Week 10 against the Detroit Lions.
Fantasy Spin: It wasn't a huge performance for Burton, but he was able to extend his streak with at least two catches to eight straight outings. He remains more of a low-end TE1 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught four passes for 40 yards, one of those receptions coming on a two-point conversion in the Bears 34-22 win over the Lions. Burton came down with some nice catches in the game on a day when the Bears offense had their way with the Lions defense. Burton may not bring in an overwhelmingly amount of targets on a weekly basis but remains one of quarterback Mitch Trubisky's favorite targets in the red zone. Burton and the Bears will have a tough test next week against the Vikings on Sunday Night Football.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will go up against a Lions defense in Week 10 that is allowing the 17th fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. Burton's five touchdowns have salvaged his fantasy production at times this season and heads into the game with 29 receptions for 371 yards through eight games. The Lions have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends over their last five games and Burton has proved to be an excellent fantasy play at Soldier Field. In four home games this season, Burton has 17 receptions for 250 yards and three touchdowns. Burton has low-end TE1 upside in Week 10.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught two passes for 28 yards and one touchdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9.
Fantasy Spin: Burton has recorded four touchdowns in his last three games but has been targeted four times or less in five of thee eight games this season. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end next week but does not have a lot of value if he does not catch a touchdown.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton is having a solid season with 27 receptions for 343 yards and four touchdowns. Burton has been used all over the field and has benefited from the Bears affinity for RPO plays that have seen several shovel passes into the hands of Burton for touchdowns. He will face a Bills defense in Week 9 that has allowed three touchdowns to tight ends over the last six games and have allowed the 12th fewest fantasy points to the position this season. The Bears should lean on the running game to move the chains in this matchup and that game plan actually benefits Burton. But he will be a touchdown-dependent option in fantasy for Week 9 as a player that might not see a ton of targets.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught three passes on four targets for 18 yards in a 24-10 win over the New York Jets in Week 8.
Fantasy Spin: Burton had scored in three straight games entering Week 8, but he ended up with his lowest receiving total since the opener. Chicago was content to run the ball after building an early lead, which played a role in Burton's lack of production. He should remain a TE1 candidate moving forward.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught only three passes for 18 yards in the Bears 24-10 win over the Jets. One week after his best game of the season, the Bears offensive game plan did not seem to focus on Burton as he tallied only four targets. Burton is having a solid season but his fantasy numbers have been pumped up by a few short-yardage shovel pass touchdown runs. The athletic tight end will be a boom-or-bust option next week as the Bears travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will look to build off of the best game of his young career in Week 8 against the Jets. Burton exploded for nine catches, 126 yards and one touchdown while making plays all over the field. He will go up against a Jets defense that is allowing the 17th fewest fantasy points to tight ends this season but allowed two touchdowns to tight ends in Week 6. The Jets are coming off a performance where they held Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph to 16 receiving yards but they have not faced an athletic tight end like Burton yet this season. Burton will be a top-8 choice among his position in fantasy and should be in lineups, especially in PPR-leagues, for Week 8.
Bears' TE Trey Burton scored 27.60 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 7 loss against the Patriots. Burton caught nine passes for 126 yards with one touchdown.
