Recent Player News

19 hours ago: Trey Burton Has Stiff Matchup Against Packers
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.

5 days ago: Trey Burton's Fantasy Value Continues To Decline
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.

9 days ago: Trey Burton Could Re-Emerge Against Rams
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.

13 days ago: Trey Burton Fails To Catch A Pass In Week 13
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.

16 days ago: Trey Burton Will Try To Snap Slump Against Giants
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.

22 days ago: Trey Burton's Slump Continues
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.

25 days ago: Trey Burton Could Have Active Showing Against Lions
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.

26 days ago: Trey Burton Held To Nine Yards In Week 11
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.

1 month ago: Trey Burton Should Have Active Game Against Vikings
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.

1 month ago: Trey Burton Catches Two-Point Conversion In Win
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.

1 month ago: Trey Burton Has Upside Playing At Home In Week 10
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.

1 month ago: Trey Burton Salvages Stat-Line With Late Touchdown Catch
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton caught two passes for 28 yards, including a touchdown catch in the Bears 41-9 win over the Bills. Burton snagged a nice 26-yard reception in the first half but was quiet most of the game until he hauled in his fifth touchdown catch of the season late in the fourth quarter. Burton's five scores now ranks second among tight ends in the NFL but lacks consistent targets on a week-to-week basis. Burton will be a touchdown-dependent play in fantasy next week against the Lions.

2 months ago: Trey Burton A Touchdown-Dependent Option In Week 9
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.

2 months ago: Trey Burton Musters Only 18 Yards
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.

2 months ago: Trey Burton Has Plenty Of Fantasy Appeal Against Jets
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.

2 months ago: Trey Burton Explodes For 126 Yards, One Touchdown
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton led all Bears with nine catches for 126 yards and one touchdown as the Bears fell short to the Patriots 38-31. Burton was quarterback Mitch Trubisky's preferred passing option most of the game as Burton wreaked havoc in the middle of the field. The tight end added a touchdown catch to cut the deficit to one touchdown late in the fourth quarter and enjoyed his best game of the season. The potential for Burton this season is just beginning to emerge and continues to ascend up the ranks among tight ends in fantasy.

2 months ago: Trey Burton Has Strong Matchup Against New England
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.

2 months ago: Trey Burton Will Be Boom-Or-Bust Against Dolphins
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.

3 months ago: Trey Burton Brings In 39-Yard Touchdown Catch In Win
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.

3 months ago: Trey Burton Has Excellent Week 4 Matchup
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.

3 months ago: Trey Burton Leads Bears With 55 Receiving Yards
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.

3 months ago: Trey Burton Can Score In Multiple Ways
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.

3 months ago: Trey Burton Finds End Zone Against Seahawks
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. Burton scored on a fantastic play-call by head coach Matt Nagy, catching a shovel pass from quarterback Mitch Trubisky for the 7-0 lead. Burton even took a snap from the wildcat in the game as the Bears are intent on flashing a variety of formations on offense. Burton will continue to factor heavily in the Bears offensive game-plan moving forward.

3 months ago: Trey Burton Hopes To Improve On Week 1 Dud
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.

3 months ago: Trey Burton To See Plenty Of Targets Against Packers
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.

4 months ago: Trey Burton Flashes Expanded Role Against Broncos
Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton gave fantasy owners a taste of his forthcoming expanded role with his new team in the Bears 24-23 preseason win over the Broncos. Burton caught four passes for 45 yards, including a touchdown catch on a fantastic play drawn up by new head coach Matt Nagy. Burton was used in motion on several plays out of the slot, including an excellent sideline catch for 12 yards for a first down. Burton's career high for receptions in a season is only 37 but glimpses at the new Bears offense indicate he could blow by that number. Burton's value will continue to rise leading up to fantasy drafts over the next few weeks.

9 months ago: Trey Burton To Have Big Role In Offense
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy wants tight end Trey Burton to fill the "U" position that Travis Kelce formerly had in his offense in Kansas City. The position is a receiver/tight end hybrid role. "It's an important role," Nagy said. "It's easy to create some plays for. And when you have a guy that has the size that Trey has and the speed that he has, it's about mismatches." The presence of young and improving tight end Adam Shaheen also complicates matters, but Burton has the real breakout fantasy potential here. However, he's best selected as just a TE2 with upside for more.

9 months ago: Bears Sign Trey Burton
The Chicago Bears are signing free-agent tight end Trey Burton to a four-year, $32 million deal, according to a source. The Bears are quickly working to upgrade their pass-catching corps, as they also signed wide receiver Allen Robinson. Burton played second fiddle to Zach Ertz in Philly in 2017 and caught 23 passes for 248 yards and five touchdowns, but he should fare much better in Chicago with young quarterback Mitch Trubisky at the helm. Burton's fantasy value will rise considerably, but his upside could be limited due to the presence of promising young tight end Adam Shaheen.

9 months ago: Lions Interested in Trey Burton
The Detroit Lions are serious suitors for Eagles tight end Trey Burton. Burton is not expected to return to Philadelphia this season, and as many as 16 teams have showed some level of interest in Burton. The Lions have come up the most however. The Lions have not indicated what they are planning to do with incumbent starter Eric Ebron, but Burton would likely come in to start, meaning Ebron would either be traded or released. Burton would immediately become a fantasy relevant tight end if he became the starter in Detroit.

10 months ago: Trey Burton Expected To Leave
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton is "expected to leave Philly," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The suggestion is that the interest was not there with the Eagles "stacked at tight end" and "dealing with cap considerations." 16 teams have already reached out to Burton and he is expected to have a strong market in free agency. After spending the past few years as a backup behind Zach Ertz, Burton will look to be in a starting role.

10 months ago: Trey Burton Turned Down Deal
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton turned down a contract from the Eagles he "didn't consider serious." One of the top free-agent tight ends, the Eagles do not have the cap space to re-sign Burton. He is looking for a starting role after spending the last few years behind Zach Ertz. Burton should be targeting Jared Cook money ($5M-plus annually).

10 months ago: Eagles Not Expected to Re-Sign Trey Burton
The Philadelphia Eagles are not expected to re-sign impending free agent tight end Trey Burton. The Super Bowl champs are almost $10 million over the cap and will need to make some cuts to get that number down, with Burton looking like one of the clearer cap casualties. He served as Zach Ertz's backup in 2017, but played well when given the chance. Still just 26-years-old, Burton will try to find a team where he gets a chance at more playing time.

12 months ago: Trey Burton Catches a Touchdown in Week 15
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton followed up his excellent Week 14 performance with another touchdown in Week 15. He caught two passes for 15 yards and the touchdown. With starter Zach Ertz back in the lineup, Burton took a distant back seat but still came up with a solid fantasy performance. He won't be a starting option as long as Ertz is active, but Burton has shown the ability to be a solid starter, and he will be a free agent after this season.

12 months ago: Trey Burton Expected To Land A Considerable Contract
Philadelphia Eagles tight end Trey Burton is expected to land a "significant deal" this offseason according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. Burton was tendered at the second-round level as a restricted free agent last offseason. He is one of the better backups in the league and has flashed with Zach Ertz sidelined — scoring three touchdowns in the two games Ertz has missed. With a shallow tight end market, it would be surprising if Burton did not get starter-level money.
