Trey Burton May Play Important Role

Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich says that he envisions tight end Trey Burton stepping into the role that Eric Ebron had the past two seasons. Burton and Ebron are different styles of tight end, but Reich believes the team will still be able to take advantage of Burton's strengths in his role as the No. 2 tight end on a team that has made use of multiple tight ends over the past few years. Ebron, for example, averaged six targets per game over his two years with the Colts. If Burton approaches a number close to that, he could finish as a fantasy TE2 and have some streaming upside during bye weeks. He could wind up being even more valuable if Jack Doyle misses time. Still, Burton's own injury concerns are pretty massive, making him a risky fantasy pick, though upside is there as a late-round option.

Trey Burton Misdiagnosed With Injury

Indianapolis Colts tight end Trey Burton -- who the team just signed -- said that he had been misdiagnosed with an injury last offseason while playing for the Chicago Bears, leading him to rush back to the field. Burton had hip surgery in December and says that he's four months into a six month recovery window from that, and the expectation seems to be that Burton will be healthy heading into the 2020 season. He's still expected to play a secondary role to tight end Jack Doyle and hold little fantasy value, but Burton's statement about last year's injury could explain why Burton could never get going in the eight games he played in 2019.

Trey Burton Signs With Colts

The Indianapolis Colts have signed tight end Trey Burton to one-year deal worth the minimum. Burton spent the past two seasons with the Chicago Bears, and he'll receive a total of $4 million that's already guaranteed from the Bears. Limited to just eight games in 2019, he finished with 14 catches for 84 yards after a 2018 campaign that saw him grab 54 passes for 569 yards and six scores. A healthy Burton can still be a quality NFL tight end, though he's unlikely to have the same kind of role with the Colts that the player he's ostensibly replacing, Eric Ebron, had. Expect Jack Doyle to be the clear TE1 in Indy, with Burton getting a few looks per game. Without a Doyle injury, Burton won't have much of a path to fantasy relevance.
