Alec Burks moved into the starting lineup Saturday at San Antonio and he finished with eight points, eight rebounds and two assists across 25 minutes.
It wasn't a horrific night in terms of fantasy production, as he started to the ill Donovan Mitchell. However, Burks took the circuitous route to the eight points, hitting 3-of-10 from the field, 1-of-2 from behind the arc and he was 1-of-2 from the free-throw stripe. Expect this to be a one-off, as Donny Mitchell should be well enough to play Monday in New Orleans, the first contest in a four-game week. Feb 3 - 11:34 PM

Date:

Alec Burks will start on Saturday against the Spurs.

We don't get Donovan Mitchell for this game, so Burks gets a huge opportunity. Rodney Hood is also back for this game, so a strong game from Burks could help him stay in the rotation.
Feb 3 - 8:33 PM

Alec Burks scored five points with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

The Jazz went with a decent amount of Royce O'Neale to combat the Raptors size, so Burks didn't step up too much. He should still be the beneficiary from the Rodney Hood (leg) injury and apparently Hood has an excellent chance to be traded.
Jan 26 - 11:44 PM

Alec Burks had nine points, two rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Rodney Hood (leg) was out for the third straight game and Utah has been vague about his possible return date -- we'll consider him questionable for Friday. Burks was averaging 16.0 points in his previous two games, but his minutes aren't reliable enough even with Hood temporarily sidelined. Tread carefully.
Jan 24 - 11:10 PM

Alec Burks ended up with 15 points in Saturday's 125-113 victory against the visiting Clippers.

Burks hit 4-of-7 from the field, and he was 7-of-8 from the line, while adding six rebounds and just one turnover across 18 minutes off the bench. After back-to-back DNP-CDs he had a chance to shine with Rodney Hood (leg) out of the lineup. He did just that, but it's no guarantee he'll stick in Quin Snyder's rotation once Hood is back in the mix.
Jan 21 - 12:36 AM

Alec Burks picked up another DNP-CD on Wednesday.

Burks has bounced in and out of coach Quin Snyder's rotation since Rodney Hood returned to action, but couldn't earn minutes tonight even with Thabo Sefolosha (knee surgery) done for the season. That could change late in the season, but Burks doesn't qualify as a 'stash' candidate -- this is his seventh season in the NBA, after all.
Jan 18 - 1:12 AM

Alec Burks played just 16 minutes and hit 3-of-8 shots for eight points and four rebounds in Monday's blowout loss to the Rockets.

Burks was once on fire, but Rodney Hood (26 points) is back and rolling, while Burks has fizzled in three straight, scoring a grand total of 19 points over that stretch. He'll have the occasional big game, but now that Hood is back and rolling, it's probably time to think about sending Burks back to the waiver wire. It was a nice run.
Tue, Dec 19, 2017 12:06:00 AM

Alec Burks came off the bench on Wednesday for 13 points and seven rebounds in 25 minutes of action.

Burks made 6-of-13 shots with one 3-pointer and his 25 minutes were in line with his recent workload. That's a very positive sign, since Rodney Hood (ankle) was back in action tonight, and Burks' owners should hang onto him in the hopes that he can hold onto 24+ minutes per game.
Thu, Dec 14, 2017 01:03:00 AM

Alec Burks finished with 20 points across 27 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss at Milwaukee.

Burks continues to roll up big point totals with Rodney Hood (ankle) on the shelf. He finished 8-of-13 from the field, including 2-of-4 from behind the 3-point line, while adding six rebounds and three assists with just one turnover. He is working on a season-high seven-game streak with 10 or more points, which is exactly how many games Hood has been sidelined. Once Hood is back, Burks will take a big step back in terms of minutes, production and fantasy value.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 01:04:00 AM

Alec Burks hit 6-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, three assists and two steals in 27 minutes off the bench in Thursday's loss to the Rockets.

He was a bit quiet on Tuesday with 11 points on 2-of-9 shooting, but got back on track tonight. He'll fade a bit once Rodney Hood is back from his ankle injury, but for now, Burks has basically become a must-own player as long as Hood's in street clothes.
Fri, Dec 8, 2017 01:26:00 AM

Alec Burks hit just 2-of-9 shots and no 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds, five assists and a steal in 22 minutes of Tuesday's loss to OKC.

Burks had scored at least 24 points in three straight games with eight 3-pointers, so he was due to cool off at some point. Rodney Hood was out tonight, and remains day-to-day with his ankle injury, so Burks is probably still worth using the rest of this week. He'll look to get hot again on Thursday against the Rockets.
Tue, Dec 5, 2017 11:10:00 PM

Alec Burks was dominant in a 116-69 win over the Wizards on Monday, scoring 27 points on 9-of-13 shots and 6-of-6 free throws.

Rodney Hood (ankle) was out again, and Burks did all of his damage in just 28 minutes due to the lopsided score. He added five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three triples, and he's officially one of the hottest SGs in the West with averages of 22.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.6 triples in his previous three games. He looks like a strong pickup with the Jazz banged up and has three more games on the schedule this week.
Tue, Dec 5, 2017 12:35:00 AM

Alec Burks kept his foot on the gas with 24 points, three boards, one assist, two steals, one block and one triple in 31 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

Rodney Hood missed his third game in a row with left ankle soreness, and the Jazz were fortunate that Burks and Donovan Mitchell saved the day with Ricky Rubio posting a donut in the scoring column. Burks was coming off a 28-point game on Thursday and has gone on nice runs like this in the past, but his durability always held him back. He's worth a long look while Hood is out, but keep in mind the Jazz are off until Monday.
Sat, Dec 2, 2017 12:54:00 AM

Alec Burks exploded for a season-high 28 points with seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

He was 11-of-17 from the field and made both free throws. Burks basically slid right into Rodney Hood's role as the second-unit gunner and he's also been hot from deep lately with his 8-of-12 from deep over his last three. Burks did put up 14 points on Tuesday and he's clearly earned a sizable role until Hood is back. Hood was ruled out hours before this game, so maybe he needs to miss more time. While he doesn't have much long-term value in fantasy, he could have some short-term value. Congrats to anyone who streamed him or used him in DFS tonight.
Fri, Dec 1, 2017 01:25:00 AM

Alec Burks had 15 points, two rebounds, two steals and one assist in 25 minutes on Wednesday, making 5-of-10 field goals and 4-of-6 free throws.

This was the most points Burks has scored since opening night, and he's yet to hit double-digits in consecutive games this season. Until that changes, he's a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
