2018 Fantasy Outlook
Burton had a hard time getting on the field in Philadelphia, given the depth of the receiving group and the chops of the first-string tight end, Zach Ertz. But when Burton's name was called last year, he was ready - five touchdowns on 31 looks, and a couple of double-digit fantasy games when Ertz needed to sit. Burton also had a Super Bowl touchdown on the passing end of the "Philly Special" gadget play at the goal line. The Bears threw a four-year, $32 million package at Burton in free agency, and new coach Matt Nagy says Burton will play the "Travis Kelce role" in Chicago's offense. Maybe the coach-speak doesn't matter to you, but following the money is never a bad idea. And Chicago's receiving group was suspect last year and still has plenty of questions this season. Burton is going to show up on a lot of sleeper lists - but we'd also like to see some confirmation in summer. Read Past Outlooks

Burton caught all four of his targets for 20 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 24-17 win over the Seahawks.
ANALYSIS
Burton capped Chicago's opening offensive series with a three-yard touchdown from a well-designed shuffle pass. Although he wasn't very involved afterward -- and tied for third on the team in targets -- he at least caught everything thrown his way, an improvement from his one reception on six targets Week 1. On the back of that performance, Burton will look to keep moving in the right direction this Sunday versus the Cardinals.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2016
2015
Primarily a special teams player and the third tight end option during his first two pro seasons, Burton re-signed as a restricted free agent this offseason after supplanting Brent Celek as the No. 2 tight end target in Philadelphia over the course of 2016. The former Florida Gator posted career highs in catches (37), targets (60) and receiving yards (327), all at least double Celek's numbers. However, Zach Ertz remains the tight end to own on the Eagles, so unless something happens to him, Burton won't have much relevance to the fantasy game in 2017 outside of deep leagues.
After an impressive preseason showing prior to his 2015 campaign, Burton recorded just three catches for 54 yards on four targets while buried on the depth chart behind Brent Celek and Zach Ertz throughout last season. Both Celek and Ertz signed multi-year extensions with the Eagles this offseason, so it could be another season of waiting for Burton, barring an injury to either of the two tight ends above him. At this point it's clear the 24-year-old won't have a big enough role to garner much fantasy interest.
Burton was a special teams whiz in his first year with the Eagles. However, when it comes to offensive production, he’ll still be the team’s third tight end option, and he probably won’t see much more than a scant few receptions.
