Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Monday night.

Burton was limited all week in practice as he continues to battle a groin issue. Burton was active last week, but he’s very difficult to trust in fantasy lineups right now.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) is active for Week 2.

Burton's core muscle issue was becoming a concern, but it's good to see him active after missing the season opener. It's difficult to trust Burton in Week 2 fantasy lineups in his first game of the year.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday.

Burton remained limited in today’s practice to end the week. He’s probably a true gametime call, but he’ll be difficult to trust in fantasy lineups if he’s active for the Week 2 matchup with Denver.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) officially remains limited in practice.

We'll see what happens, but this isn't likely to change tomorrow. Expect Burton to be given a questionable tag while being considered a gametime call when the final Week 2 injury report is released.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) was officially limited in today's practice.

Burton is still considered day-to-day, but we'd say he's on the doubtful side of things for Week 2. Hopefully he can get up to a full practice tomorrow or Friday.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Packers.

It felt like this would be the case, and Burton is now officially out. Adam Shaheen should draw the start, but he probably isn't worth considering as a desperation option with so many options available in Week 1. This is slight boost to the rest of the Chicago weapons.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Week 1.

Burton was listed as a limited participant in practice all week, and he's looking like a true gametime call for tomorrow night's season opener against the Packers. Ideally, you'll have a stronger TE option to place in your fantasy lineup even if Burton does play, but the versatile tight end's status will be known by around 7:00 PM ET tomorrow.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) could be a gametime decision on Thursday.

Bears GM Ryan Pace says a minor groin injury popped up last week, but that it is unrelated to Burton's offseason sports hernia surgery. Chicago opens the NFL's 100th season this Thursday night against the Packers, so Burton has a short week to try and get ready for the game. We'd say he's leaning toward the doubtful side of things for now. Adam Shaheen would get more snaps if Burton is out.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton has missed the last three practices.

The Bears say they are taking a cautious approach with Burton, who avoided the PUP list to start training camp despite coming off offseason sports hernia surgery. Bears head coach Matt Nagy says Burton sitting out practices is "not a setback. It's more of, for us, I'm trying to protect him a little bit. I need him and we need him 100 percent for Week 1." Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune thinks it's unlikely that Burton plays this preseason, which won't be surprising if Chicago wants to ensure their starting tight end is ready to go for the NFL's 100th season kickoff game on Thursday, September 5. For now, expect Burton to take things slow for the rest of the summer, but he should be good to go for Week 1. This news probably makes Burton a less enticing option toward the end of fantasy drafts.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton is recovering from sports hernia surgery.

Head coach Matt Nagy said his starting tight end had the procedure a couple months ago, but he hopes to be at full strength by training camp. The latter note is certainly a good sign, but if Burton's absence lingers into August, fantasy owners would likely have cause for concern. Burton caught 54 passes for 569 yards and six touchdowns in his first season with the Bears.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) is officially inactive for Wild Card Weekend.

Burton was added to the injury report with a groin injury yesterday, and unfortunately it's bad enough that he won't be able to suit up against his former team. 2017 second-round pick Adam Shaheen could play a huge role for the Bears as they look to get past the Eagles to face the Rams in the Divisional Round, when hopefully Burton would be recovered and ready to go.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton (groin) has been added to the injury report for the Wild Card Round.

Burton wasn't on the injury report all week, but it appears something happened to him today/tonight. Chicago's starting tight end is now in obvious doubt for tomorrow's playoff game against the Eagles after being added to the injury report so late. Burton's status against his former team will be known by 3:10 PM ET tomorrow.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton caught five passes for 33 yards in Sunday's win over the Vikings.

Burton has been more of a factor in recent weeks, and his regular season ends with 54 receptions for 569 yards and six touchdowns—all career-highs. Burton will take on his former team next week when the Eagles come to town for what should be a great matchup.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches all five targets in Week 16.

Burton gained 30 yards on his five receptions versus the Niners, mostly working as an underneath target in the Bears’ win. Burton is not a great Week 17 play against a Vikings team that held him to nine yards earlier this season.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton scores in Bears' Week 15 win.

Burton caught four passes for 36 yards and a touchdown against the Packers, with the score coming on a corner route where he basically got wide-open for a laser from Mitchell Trubisky for 13 yards. This was Burton's first score since Week 9, and he'll look to keep it going in Week 16 against the Niners. It's a tough matchup for the first week of fantasy championships, though.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches two passes against the Rams.

Burton gained 22 yards on his two Week 14 receptions, including a nice 17-yard catch where he made a nice grab on a back-shoulder throw over the middle. Burton hasn’t been able to get much going recently, and he’s not a highly-recommended fantasy option in the second week of the fantasy playoffs when he faces a Packers team that shut him down in Week 1.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton caught four passes for 28 yards in Chicago's win over the Lions.

Burton was targeted seven times, but he also fumbled. And unfortunately, his quiet day couldn't turn into a big one after Chase Daniel didn't see him streaking wide open down the seam for a would-be touchdown in the second half. Burton is slowly falling out of the TE1 ranks, but perhaps he will get back on track in Week 13 against the Giants.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches one pass in Week 11.

Burton gained nine yards on his lone reception against the Vikings. He was targeted just one time, as Minnesota did a good job of taking him out of the game. Burton will look to bounce back against the Lions on Thanksgiving.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton caught four passes for 40 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.

Burton was able to bring in all four of his targets, but Allen Robinson (6/133/2) and Anthony Miller (5/122/1) did most of the damage in a 34-22 victory. The 27-year-old will likely continue to be a volatile TE1 in a talented offense that spreads the ball around, but Week 11 looks like a better matchup for him than others as Chicago hosts Minnesota.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton scores in Week 9.

Burton got wide-open for a touchdown in the flat against the Bills, and overall he had two receptions for 28 yards and a touchdown. At the midway point in his first season with the Bears, Burton is on pace for a 58/742/10 line, so it's been a solid start for the former Eagle. Burton and the Bears play the Lions in Week 10.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches three passes versus the Jets.

Burton gained 18 yards on his three receptions in Chicago's Week 8 victory. This was a disappointing performance for fantasy owners after a huge game last week, but Burton had a tough matchup against the Jets. He'll look to have a bigger game in Week 9 against the Bills.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton has huge game in loss to the Patriots.

Burton had his best game as a Bear, catching nine passes (on 11 targets) for 126 yards and a touchdown against the franchise he threw the "Philly Special" touchdown on in the Super Bowl last season. The touchdown arguably came on a push-off that got him basically wide-open, but the officials did not throw the flag. Burton now has a touchdown in three straight weeks (and four total on the season), and he remains an obvious TE1 option for Week 8.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton scores in Week 6.

Burton caught all four of his targets against the Dolphins, gaining 23 yards with a touchdown. The score came on a shuffle pass down by the goal line, a play that's a major weapon in Matt Nagy's offense. Burton has a touchdown in three of the last four games and is a TE1 option for Week 7 against New England.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton scores in win over the Buccaneers.

Burton caught two passes for 86 yards including a 39-yard touchdown in the first quarter on a busted coverage. The Bears really took off on Sunday, and it was good to see Burton get loose a couple times. He only has 11 receptions through four games, but the former Eagle is on pace for 704 yards and eight scores as a key factor in Matt Nagy's offense. Consider Burton a solid TE1 when the Bears return from their Week 5 bye.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton leads the Bears in Week 3 receiving.

Burton was targeted five times against the Cardinals, catching four passes for 55 yards, with a long of 25 yards. Burton has now followed up his touchdown from last week with a solid 55-yard performance, and the connection with Mitchell Trubisky should be growing. He's a TE1 option for Week 4 against Tampa Bay.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton scores in Week 2 win over Seattle.

Burton caught four passes for 20 yards, including a touchdown on a shovel pass in the first quarter. He also added a two-yard rush. Through two weeks, Allen Robinson has operated as Mitchell Trubisky's clear No. 1 target, but Burton will hopefully have bigger days ahead. He remains a TE1 next week against the Cardinals.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches one pass in Bears debut.

Burton was targeted six times by Mitchell Trubisky, but the two couldn’t quite connect throughout the night. Burton gained 15 yards on his lone reception. While the stat line is disappointing, the usage leads to optimism; clearly, the Bears expect Burton to be a big part of their offense. He remains in the TE1 mix for Week 2.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton has officially signed with the Bears.

After doing an excellent job on special teams and eventually carving out a role on offense with the Eagles, Burton is cashing in as a free agent with the Bears. Adam Shaheen, a second-round pick of Chicago last year, is also in the mix, but Burton is likely to have a sizable role on offense for the Bears. Consider him a potential backend TE1 option for now, with the potential for more or less depending on his role.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Tight end Trey Burton is expected to sign with the Bears, according to Mike Garafolo.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport adds that it's a four-year deal worth $32 million, which is quite the payday for the 2014 undrafted free agent. Many people will know Burton from his touchdown pass to Nick Foles in Super Bowl LII off the "Philly Special" play, but he's an extremely versatile player that can make a lot of plays on offense. The Bears continue to add pieces around quarterback Mitchell Trubisky as he enters his second NFL season, and Burton could quickly become a trusted target for him over the middle. Chicago does have 2017 second-round tight end Adam Shaheen in the mix, so it'll be interesting to see how the playing time shakes out throughout training camp and the preseason. Burton's deal with the Bears won't be official until the new league year begins tomorrow at 4:00 PM ET.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton throws touchdown in Super Bowl LII win.

Burton was a huge part in one of the biggest plays of the game for the Eagles, as they went for it on fourth down at the goal line late in the first half and Burton threw a one-yard touchdown to quarterback Nick Foles on a trick play. The athletic tight end came through on what was an easy throw, placing it right into Foles' hands. Burton didn't have any receptions in the game, but it'll certainly be one to remember. Burton could be headed elsewhere for a bigger role in 2018, and he could be a TE1 option if he does indeed go to another team where he would have a starting role.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches one pass in Eagles' playoff win.

Burton's lone reception in the NFC Championship Game went for 12 yards. His other target was on a pass toward the sideline that Burton mistakingly jumped in the air for when he didn't have to and landed with one foot out of bounds. The versatile tight end will look to make some key plays in Super Bowl LII, both as a receiver, blocker, and on special teams.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton doesn't catch a pass in the Divisional Round.

Burton didn't catch a pass, but he did a nice job run blocking including on one play in particular in the first half that sprung Jay Ajayi for a nice gain. The versatile tight end will play in his first NFC Championship next weekend.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches one pass against the Cowboys.

Burton gained nine yards on his lone reception in Week 17. His regular season ends with 23 receptions for 248 yards and five touchdowns, and he's a bit of a wild card heading into the postseason.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton held without a catch in Christmas Night win.

Burton didn't see the field much with Zach Ertz hogging targets for Philadelphia. He could have an extended role in Week 17 against the Cowboys with Ertz potentially resting, which would make Burton a solid TE1 option.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton scores in Eagles' win.

Burton caught another red zone touchdown, making it three scores in two weeks for the versatile tight end. Overall, Burton had two receptions for 15 yards and the score in the victory over the Giants. He's difficult to trust in standard fantasy lineups, but Burton is a fine option next week against the Raiders if you're in a two-tight end league.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton scores twice in Week 14.

If you picked up Burton to play for an injured Zach Ertz, it certainly paid off for you. Burton caught five of six targets for 71 yards and two touchdowns against the Rams, with both scores coming on throws to the end zone in traffic. The versatile tight end won't be a recommended fantasy option if Ertz is back in Week 15, but it's good to see him flash the ability that makes him a very valuable member of the team.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton caught four passes for 42 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Burton saw more playing time after Zach Ertz left with a concussion, but Ertz will hopefully be OK for Week 14 against the Rams. If not, Burton would be a no-doubt TE1 option.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton scores in Week 9.

With Zach Ertz (hamstring) out, Burton played well while getting more work against Denver, catching two of four targets for 41 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a back-shoulder catch near at the goal line for 27 yards—it looked like it might've been bobbled, but it was close and ruled a touchdown. Those that plugged in Burton after Ertz was inactive should be happy with the performance. Assuming Ertz is back in Week 11 after the team's bye week, Burton shouldn't be on fantasy rosters—though he'll continue being a key contributor for the Eagles.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton caught two passes for 21 yards in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Burton is a versatile player that can man the slot or go out wide, but he's not a reliable fantasy option with Zach Ertz healthy. That said, he might have a bigger role against the Broncos next Sunday.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches one pass in Eagles' win.

Burton's pickup was for seven yards on his lone target of the game. He doesn't get enough opportunities to be a fantasy option right now.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches one pass in Eagles' win.

Burton gained nine yards on his lone target. He's a solid contributor for Philadelphia, but Burton is not a fantasy option.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton scores first touchdown of the season in Week 5 win.

It was a 15-yard score in the first quarter, and Burton finished with two catches for 16 yards. He isn't a fantasy option with Zach Ertz healthy.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches two of three targets in Eagles' win.

Burton had seven yards on his two receptions and is not currently on the fantasy radar despite his contributions to the Eagles in real life.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches one pass for ten yards in Week 2.

It was Burton's only target in the game. He's more of a contributor to the Eagles in real life than he will be for your fantasy team as long as Zach Ertz is healthy.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton catches four passes for 43 yards in Week 3 of the preseason.

The versatile Eagles tight end worked with the second team mostly. He'll be a contributor on offense this season, but he probably won't do enough to warrant a fantasy roster spot in 2017.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton fumbles in opening preseason game.

The Eagles tight end is wearing a new number (#88, he was previously #47) if you didn't notice him. Burton had three receptions for 19 yards, but he did fumble because he was holding the ball carelessly on one of his catches. Still, the versatile tight end looked athletic as usual, and he's looking to be the number two tight end behind Zach Ertz this season.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

The Eagles place second-round tender on restricted free agent Trey Burton.

Burton likely won't be going anywhere in 2017. He's a versatile weapon and one of the best backup tight ends in the league. Burton could cash in on a decent long-term extension at some point.

Trey Burton caught five passes for 39 yards against Dallas.

Burton broke out for 37 receptions, 327 yards, and one touchdown this season after having only three catches coming into the year. He's not a fantasy option in 2017 drafts, but will remain a valuable player for the Eagles.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton caught his only target for three yards against New York.

Burton had a nice stretch a few weeks ago, but hasn't done much since. He's off the fantasy radar.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton is shut down by the Ravens.

Burton had six targets, but only two catches for two yards against Baltimore. His six targets were the third most on the team, but the Eagles pass offense struggled. Burton isn't a good fantasy option.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton has productive game for second straight week.

Burton had ten targets and caught seven of them for 65 yards. Burton has two straight weeks with at least five catches and 50 yards, but is not a reliable fantasy option. He can definitely stay out of your lineup next week against Baltimore.

Trey Burton | Bears TE

Trey Burton caught five passes for 53 yards against the Bengals.

It was a solid game for Burton. He's a useful, athletic weapon for the Eagles, but not a fantasy option.
