Trey Burke hit 7-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, four assists and a steal in 32 minutes on Tuesday.
He's been really fun to own down the stretch and all signs are pointing to him keeping it going. He's shockingly averaging 22.4 points, 2.2 rebounds, 8.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games, and he's worth owning everywhere until further notice. Apr 3 - 10:13 PM

Trey Burke matched his career-high 15 dimes with 18 points, five rebounds, one steal, one turnover and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes during a 115-109 loss to the Pistons on Saturday.

What is going on here? Nobody thought Burke could sustain his output, but he's been going strong since the break. In his previous games since All-Star, Burke averaged 16.2 points, 2.2 boards, 5.0 dimes, 0.8 steals and 1.4 treys on a mind-boggling 51.2 FG% at 6'1". He couldn't even produce consistently in summer league during his Jazz days, but Burke has somehow become of the best scorers you could've found off the waiver wire.
Mar 31 - 7:52 PM

Trey Burke made 7-of-15 from the field for 18 points with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes during a 118-101 loss to the 76ers on Wednesday.

That's still some solid efficiency and it was hardly a letdown from his 42-point explosion. Since the break, Burke has made an outstanding 73.5 percent of his shots at the rim, he's 57.7 percent on mid-range, and he's made 37.7 percent from 3-point land. Most signs point to this not being sustainable at all, but he's too hot to not be in all starting fantasy lineups.
Mar 28 - 9:52 PM

Trey Burke started, played 41 minutes in an overtime loss, and hit 19-of-31 shots, three 3-pointers and 1-of-1 free throws for a career-high 42 points, one rebound, 12 assists and a steal in Monday's loss to the Hornets.

If you dropped Stephen Curry and picked up Burke, you might have just won a fantasy championship. The NBA's silly season has become notorious for stuff like this, although Burke has actually been playing well for some time, and he had scored between 15 and 19 points in his previous three games. It's anyone's guess what will happen in his two remaining games this week, but if you rolled with him tonight, it probably doesn't matter. Emmanuel Mudiay was out sick tonight, Jarrett Jack might be done for the rest of the season, and Frank Ntilikina might come off the bench the rest of the way. Pick up Burke if he's out there.
Mar 26 - 9:36 PM

Trey Burke made his first start of the season on Sunday, scoring 19 points with three assists, three steals and two rebounds in 27 minutes.

Burke and Frank Ntilikina were promoted tonight, with Courtney Lee and Emmanuel Mudiay heading to the Knicks' second unit. The bonus for Burke's owners is that he shot efficiently, hitting 8-of-15 field goals and 3-of-4 free throws, and his newfound starting role could easily extend through New York's final eight games. The Knicks have a poor schedule rest-of-season, but Burke is still worth considering if you need a guard.
Mar 25 - 9:13 PM

Trey Burke is expected to move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Wizards.

Burke started the second half on Friday and he's been riding a hot streak over the past six with averages of 14.3 points, 4.0 assists, 1.8 triples, 0.7 steals and 1.7 turnovers per game on 55.6% shooting in 22.9 minutes a night. He'll be someone to consider streaming today.
Mar 25 - 3:32 PM

Trey Burke started the second half of Friday's loss to the Wolves, finishing with 15 points, nine assists, two rebounds, two steals and one triple in 31 minutes.

Emmanuel Mudiay played just five minutes and didn't touch the floor in the second half, while coach Jeff Hornacek praised Burke for "controlling the pace." Mudiay is quickly losing his grip on the starting job and there's no doubt that Burke has been the better player in recent weeks. He's averaging 14.0 points, 4.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 triples over his last five games and is worth a look if you need a PG.
Mar 24 - 12:09 AM

Trey Burke scored 16 points with seven rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday.

He's being treated like a shooting guard as he checks in for wings most of the time. Burke has actually been solid over his last five, averaging 14.2 points, 3.4 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.4 steals and 2.0 treys. You could do worse, but he'll certainly have his duds at some point.
Mar 21 - 9:50 PM

Trey Burke ended up with 14 points across just 19 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win against Charlotte.

Burke hit 6-of-13 from the floor, including 2-of-4 from behind the 3-point line, while chipping in with five assists and three rebounds while turning it over zero times. The Knicks have a hodgepodge in the backcourt, but Burke has been the cream rising to the top lately. He is working on a four-game streak with double-digit point totals, averaging 14.0 points per game. Unfortunately, scoring is about all he has been doing for fantasy owners.
Mar 17 - 10:32 PM

Trey Burke got hot on Tuesday and hit 6-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points, three rebounds and a steal in just 15 minutes.

Burke has played either 14 or 15 minutes in each of his last three games, and while he's scored in double digits in two of those, is completely untrustworthy in such limited run. He was on fire a few weeks ago, but he belongs on waivers unless something changes drastically with his minutes.
Mar 13 - 10:04 PM

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said Trey Burke has been dealing with some soreness in his wrist.

It's not clear which wrist is bothering him, but it's not serious and Hornacek said he will continue to play through it. We'll leave him off the injury report for now. This may explain why he has cooled off, as Burke has scored a combined eight points on 4-of-18 shooting in his last two games.
Mar 11 - 11:44 AM

Trey Burke ended up with 11 points over 27 minutes off the bench Sunday at Sacramento.

Burke hit 5-of-10 from the field, although he was 0-of-2 from behind the 3-point arc, while adding six assists, two blocked shots, a rebound and a steal with two turnovers and a respectable plus-6 rating. That's five straight games with double-digit point performances, and he can be relied upon for a handful of assists and an occasional steal, too. He is worth a look in all deeper fantasy leagues.
Mar 5 - 12:30 AM

Trey Burke was good for 12 points across 19 minutes off the bench in Friday's 128-105 road loss against the Clippers.

Burke hit 5-of-11 from the field, including 2-of-3 from behind the 3-point line, while chipping in with two assists, a rebound and just two turnovers. The former standout at the University of Michigan is averaging 20.5 points and 5.3 assists over the past four outings with a total of seven 3-pointers. He isn't starting, but he is getting plenty of minutes to make him useful from a fantasy perspective.
Mar 3 - 1:24 AM

Trey Burke had another strong game with 18 points, five assists, one rebound, one steal, one block and one triple in 25 minutes vs. the Warriors on Monday.

He continued to stay hot from the field, hitting 8-of-15 shots and his only free throw of the night. Emmanuel Mudiay and Frank Ntilikina both played well tonight, but the good news is that all three players are getting plenty of minutes with New York using a lot more two-PG lineups. Burke is coming off two straight 26-point games with a combined 14 assists, and while he could cool off at any moment, he's currently too hot to leave on the wire.
Feb 26 - 10:48 PM

Trey Burke went off yet again during a 121-112 loss to the Celtics on Saturday, matching a season-high 26 points with eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He just scored 26 points on Thursday and is suddenly one of the hottest bench players in the NBA. Burke's shot selection has still been all over the place and this hot stretch is based on him making jumpers, which is a usually a strong indicator that it's not sustainable. That aside, it's kind of hard to argue back-to-back 26-point games on a team lacking offensive punch, so Burke is worth an add in 12-team leagues to see if he keeps it going. Although, his prospective owners shouldn't have high expectations.
