Alec Burks put together a comeback season in 2019-20, netting top-95/85 (8/9-cat) value and setting career-highs in points (15.1), rebounds (4.4), steals (1.0), blocks (0.3) threes (1.7) and free throw percentage (.896).
With Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and D'Angelo Russell missing huge chunks of time, Burks was sort of the last man standing in Golden State and got his fill on the stat sheet. Unfortunately the campaign was a tale of two halves for Burks, who saw his value slip to top-220 after being traded to the Sixers, where he became a bench player. We'll have to see if Burks can split the difference between garbage time monster and irrelevant depth piece next season, but we would err on the side of him not quite making hay in standard formats. A lot can change between now and draft time but Burks is going to struggle to come close to the volume that powered his wonderful season.

Raul Neto came off the bench on Thursday and scored 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting to go with two rebounds, two assists, a steal and two triples.
Neto popped off the bench tonight on the heels of some incredible shooting. The minutes (21) are still low and this performance doesn't seem sustainable so we're going to hold off on calling him an add for now. Alec Burks (19 minutes, 17 points, three rebounds, one assist, two steals and three triples) also had a great night shooting the ball, but between him, Neto and Glen Robinson III (28 minutes, five points, five rebounds, one assist and a triple) there's too much production being split.

Alec Burks put together 15 points, six rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers against the Clippers on Sunday.
Burks saw an increase in opportunities after Josh Richardson departed with a head injury. The Sixers are so thin that Burks may carry some late-round value as the team is desperate for offense. He received over 25 minutes on Sunday. Glenn Robinson III only received 13 minutes on Sunday and is looking like an option for only the deepest of leagues with such a limited role.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Ben Simmons' back injury is more than a day-to-day issue.
Tobias Harris will be counted on a lot with Simmons sidelined, while Alec Burks will see a larger than usual role. For now, it's unknown exactly how much time Simmons will miss.

Alec Burks finally got some extended run for the Sixers in an overtime win over the Nets on Thursday, playing 30 minutes and scoring 19 points.
This was the reason to hold on to Burks in deep leagues despite a clear downgrade in his deployment on a deep, confusing rotation. This doesn't mean Burks will get this run every night, but he's too tough to trust in most leagues.

Alec Burks didn't leave the bench on Sunday despite being available to make his Sixers debut.
Burks can give the Sixers some scoring punch and additional ball-handling off the bench, but Furkan Korkmaz was cooking and there was no need to mess with a good thing. If you hadn't yet, it's safe to drop Burks in leagues with 16 teams or fewer.

Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III are available to make their Sixers' debut on Sunday versus the Bulls.
Burks figures to offer more value coming off of the bench to add a scoring punch, but it's going to take an injury for either to have standard league value going forward.

Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III are not expected to be available to make their Sixers' debut on Sunday versus the Bulls.
Furkan Korkmaz should continue seeing heavy minutes with both Robinson and Burks out and Josh Richardson working his way back from injury.

Furkan Korkmaz hit two triples in 28 minutes of action on Thursday night, scoring 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting as the Bucks pulled away from the Sixers 112-101.
Korkmaz has had some intrigue as a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues due to the absence of Josh Richardson. Shake Milton has gotten some run as well and has been an interesting option, scoring eight points to go with four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes in this game. It'll be interesting to see what happens to the Sixers' role players not only when Richardson returns, but also when they incorporate newly acquired Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks into the rotation.
February 6, 2020, 3:37 pmTrey BurkePG, Philadelphia Sixers
The Sixers waived Trey Burke on Thursday.
The Sixers acquired Glen Robinson III and Alec Burks yesterday and had to create two roster spots in order to make room for them. They were able to trade James Ennis III but were forced to waive Burke after being unable to find a trade partner. Burke is not on the fantasy radar but could find himself on another team before the end of the season.

Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III have been traded to the Sixers in exchange for three second-round picks on Wednesday.
Burks' value takes a massive hit with this relocation. He was seeing some good usage thanks to the Warriors being so ravaged by injuries. Now just a depth-filler for Philly, Burks will be relegated to a deep-league value asset ROS.

Eric Paschall started on Wednesday and scored 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting with five rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.
Paschall double-doubled with 14 points and 10 boards on Monday and got the start tonight with Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks sitting out amidst trade rumors. Paschall started at small forward next to Draymond Green and Marquese Chriss, so he is worth watching as the trade deadline unfolds. Wait for one more game like this before picking him up in standard leagues though.
February 5, 2020, 7:08 pmAlec BurksSG, Golden State Warriors
According to Marc Stein of the NY Times, Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III will sit out of Wednesday's game vs. the Nets in anticipation that one or both get traded before Thursday's trade deadline.
The Warriors have been established sellers this season as they currently have the worst record in the NBA at 12-39. Continue to monitor the trades that occur over the next day as certain players will lose value while others will gain value depending on where they end up. Both Burks and Robinson will likely see their values diminish if they get moved to a contender as they will have less opportunity.

D'Angelo Russell (right quad contusion) will play in Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.
D'Angelo will return to action against his former team after missing their last contest. His return will negatively affect the value of Alec Burks but Burks should still be rostered in standard leagues.

Alec Burks came off the bench on Monday and scored a game-high 30 points on 9-of-17 shooting to go with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.
Burks has been the best player on the Warriors lately and will definitely be in several trade rumors as the week drags on. He'll have the most value on the Warriors, but could still have some low-end appeal on another squad. This situation as it stands is ripe for him though.
