Week 21: vs New England Patriots

All TE vs NE

FBG says: Good matchup. Nick Foles has been a roller coaster this season as he looked extremely shaky heading into the playoffs but ultimately has been tremendous in the playoffs as he has completed over 75% of his passes in each of his two playoff games. The reason for this is that the Eagles have simplified the offense and have focused on shorter higher percentage passes to Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz, and the running backs in Corey Clement and Jay Ajayi. The Eagles have moved away from Nelson Agholor who was a primary receiver with Carson Wentz but has largely been a non-factor with Nick Foles outside of going back to his slot receiving role that he had last season. The Patriots secondary has been one that has struggled for most of the year as they allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks as they allowed 270 yards per game and 1.5 touchdowns per game. These numbers are a little bit skewed as teams who are behind ultimately are going to be forced to throw more, but the Patriots secondary is one that is not great as Eric Rowe out of the slot and Malcolm Butler have both struggled this season. The one area that the Patriots have been very strong at this season is against the tight end which could cause issues for the Eagles as they will likely rely on Zach Ertz in this game, but the Patriots create game plans to take the tight end out of the game as they did with Travis Kelce, Jared Cook, the Chargers tight ends, Charles Clay, Delanie Walker. They held all of these tight ends to under 50 yards as Patrick Chung and Devin McCourty have done a great job as linebackers matching up against these tight ends.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 15 vs NYG (2 / 2 / 15 / 1 rec)

Burton had a touchdown last week filling in for Zach Ertz and decided that he liked it so much that he wanted to do it again this week. His 13-yard touchdown came on a blown coverage where his cover man jumped the route by Alshon Jeffrey and there was no safety help to pick him up. Burton celebrated the easy touchdown with a spinning ball campfire celebration with Jeffrey who had pulled his man off his coverage.

2017 Week 14 vs LAR (6 / 5 / 71 / 2 rec)

Trey Burton did a tremendous job filling in for Zach Ertz this week as he was able to find the end-zone twice in this game and continued to show the speed and agility that has so many people excited about Burton when he is given the opportunity. What made it even more exciting is that both of Burton's touchdowns were in heavily contested that Burton was able to go up and make the catch.

2017 Week 13 vs SEA (7 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)

Trey Burton came in for Ertz when he went down with injury and filled in nicely in this game as he continues to show his ability as a pass catching tight end. Burton continues to show his speed and when he is given a chance is a dynamic pass receiving tight end. If Ertz is out he could be in a nice spot next week against the Rams.

2017 Week 9 vs DEN (4 / 2 / 41 / 1 rec)

Trey Burton filled in for the injured Zach Ertz and was on the field for 68% of the snaps in this game. Burton was used sparingly in the passing game except for a pass back shoulder throw from Wentz in which Burton was able to hang on taking a hit into the end zone from oncoming defenders for a touchdown.
