Summary

Trey Burton was a splash signing for 2018 with Chicago, emerged from his secondary role in Philadelphia for a starting spot with the Bears. Burton's role expanded, but the upside remained limited on a capped Chicago passing game to the tune of one game of more than seven targets and a 10.5 yards-per-catch average. All this while Adam Shaheen, an up-and-coming second round NFL Draft pick, missed most of the season with injury. Burton's big plays centered on a 126-yard game midseason on 11 targets and designed shovel passes near the goal line for point blank scoring opportunities. With a returning wide receiver corps and healthy Adam Shaheen, Burton's upside will require a system-wise uptick or Shaheen missing more time. (April 13)

Bears | Trey Burton expected for start of camp (Sun Jul 21, 05:22 PM) - Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Ryan Pace on Sunday, July 21.

Our View: The team will ease him back in, but it should be an uneventful return to action after a routine surgery. Adam Shaheen is the more healthy tight end and could make a bid for more targets if Burton is slow to return, but Burton will remain in the more fantasy friendly role.
