Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (undisclosed) remains out of practice Monday, Aug. 5. He was out Friday, Aug. 2, due to a planned day off and didn't practice the following day either.
Huddle Up: Burton is a TE2 that really disappointed last season and is looking to regain some undervalued luster.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) was held out of practice by head coach Matt Nagy Friday, Aug. 2, and Saturday, Aug. 3. He had participated in the first five practices of training camp but was kept out of the two most recent sessions after appearing to struggle near the end of that stretch.
Huddle Up: Burton spent most of the offseason recovering from sports hernia surgery, so it could be a few weeks before he is 100 percent. However, he should still be viewed as a low-end TE1 candidate at a rather shallow position in fantasy football.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) participated in the first day of training camp Friday, July 26.
Huddle Up: Burton continues to progress as expected, and while he didn't live up to the hype in his first year in Chicago, he still topped 500 yards and scored six times. At at thin position, he is still a low-end TE1 candidate.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) is expected to be ready for
the start of training camp, according to general manager Ryan
Pace on Sunday, July 21.
Huddle Up: Burton disappointed fantasy managers last season after his
tremendous Super Bowl performance with the Philadelphia Eagles
the year before. He still caught six touchdowns and totaled 569
yards in a full 16 games and could be a strong post-hype sleeper

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (hernia) will not participate in the offseason workouts because he is recovering from sports hernia surgery he had a few months ago. The team hopes he will be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Burton is coming off a season where he posted 569 yards and six touchdowns. He should see a solid amount of targets in 2019 and could be a No. 2 tight end in fantasy leagues.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) said Monday, Jan. 7, that he missed the club's Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 6, after he 'started to feel something' in his groin following practice Friday, Jan. 4, despite initially having no limitations. By Saturday, Jan. 5, it had 'locked up,' which he said was his 'body's way of handling threats' to his health.
Huddle Up: Burton's presence was sorely missed against the Eagles, as Bears tight ends only managed to combine for five catches for 28 yards in his absence. The 27-year-old is coming off a solid debut campaign in Chicago in which he posted career highs across the board, recording 54 catches for 569 yards and six touchdowns. He's firmly in the TE1 picture going into drafts next year.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton (groin) will be a game-time decision Sunday, Jan. 6, after being added to the injury report the previous day with a groin injury.
Huddle Up: Injuries that crop up late week seldom turn out well, and second-year TE Adam Shaheen suddenly could find himself with a larger role if Burton can't go against his former team.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught all five of his targets for 30 yards in a 14-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Burton has now been held to 40 yards are less in nine straight games, and he will remain a touchdown-dependent option for fantasy owners in the finale.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton posted four grabs for 36 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: It was Burton's first visit to the end zone since Nov. 4 in Buffalo, and his first score in front of the home fans since Oct. 21 in a loss against New England. He is only worth a look as a low-end TE1 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 in San Francisco.

Chicago Bears TE Trey Burton caught two of his five targets for 22 yards in Week 14 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Burton was able to keep himself fantasy-relevant for the first half of the season by finding the end zone on a fairly regular basis. That well has dried up over the last five contests, and the former Philadelphia Eagle has been almost useless in fantasy as a result. Even at a position in which owners are desperate for options, Burton will be hard to start in the fantasy playoffs the rest of the way.
