Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) said Monday, Jan. 7, that he missed the club's Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 6, after he 'started to feel something' in his groin following practice Friday, Jan. 4, despite initially having no limitations. By Saturday, Jan. 5, it had 'locked up,' which he said was his 'body's way of handling threats' to his health.
Fantasy Spin: Burton's presence was sorely missed against the Eagles, as Bears tight ends only managed to combine for five catches for 28 yards in his absence. The 27-year-old is coming off a solid debut campaign in Chicago in which he posted career highs across the board, recording 54 catches for 569 yards and six touchdowns. He's firmly in the TE1 picture going into drafts next year.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton (groin) is officially inactive for the wild-card game against the Eagles on Sunday. Burton was added to the injury report on Saturday and will not play on wild-card weekend. Adam Shaheen should step in as the pass-catching tight end with Burton out, but he's a weak DFS play against an Eagles interior defense that has been surprisingly good against opposing tight ends this season. Burton's absence could mean more targets for the three-wide set of Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller and Taylor Gabriel.
The Chicago Bears have declared LB Aaron Lynch, C Eric Kush, WR Javon Wims, DL Nick X. Williams, TE Trey Burton, WR Kevin White and OG Rashaad Coward inactive for Wild Card Weekend.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) has been declared inactive for the Wild Card playoff game.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Jan. 6, after being added to the injury report the previous day with a groin injury.
Fantasy Spin: Injuries that crop up late week seldom turn out well, and second-year TE Adam Shaheen suddenly could find himself with a larger role if Burton can't go against his former team.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton (groin) was added to the injury report on Saturday and is now questionable for the wild-card game against the Eagles on Sunday. It's a bad omen for Burton's chances of playing in the first playoff game. If he sits, it'll mean more looks for receivers Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller and Taylor Gabriel, while second-year tight end Adam Shaheen would become the starting tight end. Shaheen has pass-catching upside, but he'd be a low-end TE play on wild-card weekend.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) was a late addition to the injury report and is listed as questionable to face the Philadelphia Eagles in the wild-card round Sunday, Jan. 6.
Fantasy Spin: It's never a good sign when a player is such a late addition to the injury report. Burton has underwhelmed this season, but with limited tight end options available for playoff contests, he could still be serviceable fantasy option if he suits up.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will have a tough matchup against his former team, the Eagles, for Wild Card weekend. Burton has only one touchdown over his last eight games and now must face an Eagles defense that allowed the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends in the regular season. The Eagles have not allowed a touchdown to the tight end position since Week 7 and only one player (the Buccaneers O.J. Howard) has been able to post more than 10 fantasy points against them. Burton has been a solid addition to the Bears rejuvenated offense but has only 21 receptions over his last eight games. Burton will be a low-floor, touchdown-dependent fantasy option among the remaining eight teams playing this weekend.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught five passes for 33 yards in the Bears 24-10 win over the Vikings. It may not seem like much but several of Burton's catches came at crucial times for first downs. In his first season with an expanded role, Burton delivered 54 receptions for 569 yards and six touchdowns. Burton enjoyed a stretch where five of those touchdowns came over the course of seven games but his production tailed off to end the season. He will be a integral red zone target for the Bears next week against the Eagles in the playoffs.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught all five of his targets for 30 yards in a 14-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.
Fantasy Spin: Burton has now been held to 40 yards are less in nine straight games, and he will remain a touchdown-dependent option for fantasy owners in the finale.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught five passes for 30 yards in the Bears victory over the 49ers in Week 16. Burton brought in all five of his targets in one of his more active games in a quite some time. After a promising start to the season all of Burton's fantasy buzz, however, has fizzled at this point. He will be a tough play in Week 17 against a Vikings defense that held him to only nine yards receiving in Week 11.
Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton posted four grabs for 36 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.
Fantasy Spin: It was Burton's first visit to the end zone since Nov. 4 in Buffalo, and his first score in front of the home fans since Oct. 21 in a loss against New England. He is only worth a look as a low-end TE1 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 in San Francisco.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught four passes for 36 yards, including a 13-yard touchdown, in the Bears win over the Packers in Week 16. Burton was targeted seven times and had his most active game in over a month. Burton now has six touchdowns on the season but has disappeared from the offensive action at times this season. Burton's fantasy stock will rise heading into Week 16 but will be no more than a touchdown-dependent option against a 49ers defense that has allowed only one touchdown to opposing tight ends since Week 5.
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton will have a tough matchup in Week 15 against a Packers defense that is allowing the second fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. Green Bay has surrendered only one touchdown to the position this season and only one tight end has posted more than 10 fantasy points against. Burton, meanwhile, has disappeared from the Bear offense over the last month. Since posting 126 yards and one touchdown against the Patriots on October 21, Burton has only 16 receptions for 135 yards and one touchdown over his last seven games. After being heavily involved in the play-calling during the first half of the season, Burton has been the odd-man out. Burton will be tough to trust to post top-10 fantasy numbers among tight ends for Week 15.
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.
