The roller coaster that Burton owners are on cracks me up, as I swear I get 10-plus questions a week where an owner asks if they should drop him. Let me save you the tweet - the answer is no. Despite having just one huge game this year, he ranks as the No. 8 tight end through 10 weeks. He's seen four or less targets in five of the last six games, which is odd, but he's scored a touchdown in four of the last six games, so we have to trust the offense. The Vikings have been somewhat mediocre against tight ends this year, as they're average across the board allowing 8.46 yards per target (10th), 66.7 percent completion rate (16th), and have allowed a touchdown every 21.0 targets (23rd). The one positive here is that they've played a similar version of this offense back in Week 5 when Zach Ertz totaled 10 catches for 110 yards and a touchdown. While Burton is playing the Ertz role, he's not seeing that many targets. Good tight ends have performed rather well against the Vikings, so consider Burton a solid TE1 who might just see more targets this week.

Trey Burton hauls in four receptions in Week 10

Trey Burton caught all four of his targets for 40 yards during the Bears 34-22 win over the Lions in Week 10. Burton also hauled in the two-point conversion following the Bears final score.

Fantasy Impact

Burton got one look need the end zone on a shovel pass but was stopped a few yards short of the end zone. He has only topped 40 yards once in the last four weeks and remains reliant on touchdowns for the bulk of his fantasy value. He'll remain a borderline TE1 next week against the Vikings.
