TE Trey Burton - Chicago Bears
|6-2, 224||Born: 10-29-1991||College: Florida||Drafted: ---|
Week 14: vs Dallas Cowboys
FBG says: Tough matchup. Mitchell Trubisky over the last two weeks has looked like the quarterback we thought he would be in early 2018. While it is too early to get too excited as the last two matchups he has had could not have been much easier in the Giants and Lions, there is some optimism that some of his early-season struggles could have been related to his left shoulder injury he suffered early in the season. Trubisky does his best work throwing on the run as his accuracy while standing in the pocket often suffers especially on deep passes, but on the run, he seems to throw with more confidence. At the receiving position, it appears the Bears will once again be without Taylor Gabriel who is suffering from a concussion which will force Anthony Miller and Javon Wims to step up to replace Gabriel as consistent options alongside Allen Robinson. Miller has stepped up over the last three weeks as he has seen an average of 11 targets per game in those contests and torched the Lions with 140 yards last week. The Cowboys pass defense is one that has been an above-average unit this season. On the year, they have held opponents to just 233 yards per game which is the sixth-fewest in the NFL, and have held opponents to 6.9 yards-per-attempt. On the season, the Cowboys have allowed just two quarterbacks to throw for more than 250 yards which were to Eli Manning and Sam Darnold both in games that Byron Jones did not play the entire game. This is a defense that is solid across the board as it is led by second-team All-Pro Byron Jones who is having another great year. If there is a weakness for the Cowboys it will be that the team is without safety Jeff Heath as Darian Thompson will once again fill in. Thompson has struggled in his four games as a starter, but fortunately for the Cowboys, the Bears don't have a tight end to take advantage of the matchup. This will be a stiff test for Mitchell Trubisky and the Bears.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 8 vs LAC (4 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Trey Burton had a quiet week against the Chargers, with his first and only reception coming in the fourth quarter across the middle. He also drew a target in the red zone that was overthrown. Burton is limited this season by Mitchell Trubisky's play and is an unpredictable fantasy player at this point in his career.
2019 Week 7 vs NO (4 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)
Trey Burton continued to be a minimal element in the offense with Mitchell Trubisky struggling to move the offense. Burton had two short receptions and added a drop while splitting snaps with Adam Shaheen who caught a two-point conversion. He is a low-end option next week against the Chargers.
2019 Week 5 vs OAK (4 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)
Trey Burton was used primarily in the short passing game against the Raiders on Sunday. He had a conversion on third down but was otherwise held to two short low leverage receptions. He is a minimal player in the offense heading in a week six bye.
2019 Week 4 vs MIN (4 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)
Trey Burton continued to reintegrate himself into the offense in week four against the Vikings. He dropped a short target but later caught a crossing route and a short slant on an RPO. There are no consistent receiving options in the offense after Allen Robinson, so Burton has the ability to grow into a role in the offense in future weeks. He will face the Raiders in week five.
2019 Week 3 vs WAS (4 / 4 / 20 / 0 rec)
Trey Burton continued to reacclimate his way into the Chicago offense after missing week one with an injury. Burton was limited to four short-area catches against Washington in week three but has the opportunity to expand his role in the offense. He will face more net week against Minnesota.
2019 Week 2 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec)
Trey Burton returned after missing week one with an injury. He drew an end-zone target that was not catchable from Mitchell Trubisky. His two catches were in the flat on dump offs. He will look to improve next week against Washington.
