There are three scoring periods left until default H2H playoffs commence. I hope your teams are surging and not slippin’. ***** A few stream-of-consciousness thoughts on trades this week (not all of them, *cough* Malachi…

Trey Burke scored six points on 2-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound, three assists and one steal in 13 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's finale.
Burke got a lot of support under Scott Perry in NY but eventually that ran out and eventually he was traded to the Mavs, where he didn't really make a move. With just 0.7 combined steals and blocks per game in 19.4 mpg this season, there just isn't a lot of meat to the bone in standard formats.

Trey Burke went 8-of-16 from the field and 6-for-6 from the line to finish Sunday's 129-127 overtime win over the Grizzlies with a team-high 24 points.
Burke made the most of the absence of Luka Doncic (thigh contusion) and delivered some efficient scoring along with two boards, five dimes, two 3s and one steal in 29 minutes. He's been just inside the top-150 over the last week and has been a serviceable play in most formats during that span.

Trey Burke started in place of Jalen Brunson (rest) on Friday night but disappointed with 13 points, three assists and no other stats in 27 minutes.
At least Burke went a respectable 4-of-7 from the field. Much more was expected of him considering how much he chucked as a member of the Knicks, but he looked the part of true PG in this one. Burke will be a viable stream or DFS play if Brunson sits again, but that's about it.

Trey Burke exploded for 25 points and eight assists on 10-for-18 shooting from the floor and 4-for-8 from beyond the arc in Sunday's win against the Thunder.
Burke logged 31 minutes off the bench in this one and took full advantage of it. In games that Luka Doncic misses, Burke has some upside, but he can't be counted on otherwise.

Trey Burke is not listed on the injury report for Saturday’s game vs. the Grizzlies.
Burke missed Wednesday’s game to an illness but it looks like he’s ready to go for Saturday. When Luka Doncic is healthy and playing, it’s difficult to count on Burke game-to-game despite his random good games.

Trey Burke has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Pacers with an illness.
He was questionable prior to this development, so there's little surprise here. With Burke sitting out, Devin Harris should get all the backup PG minutes he can handle.

Trey Burke (illness) is now questionable to face the Pacers on Wednesday.
Burke has had a few big games for the Mavs, though he's really a pure roll of the dice unless Luka Doncic is out. If Burke is unable to play tonight it will lead to more work for Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris, though as long as Doncic is in the lineup, the Mavs' depth guards are off limits in fantasy.

Trey Burke scored 20 points off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Jazz, hitting 8-of-15 shots (including a three) with seven rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes.
Whether you want to look at the revenge angle or the fact that Luka Doncic (ankle) did not play, we simply need to see Burke be productive again to get an add recommendation in 12-14 team formats. If things go well, he suddenly gets workload on a team not playing for a whole lot.
February 22, 2019, 6:58 pmLuka Doncic - G/F - Dallas Mavericks
Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.
Doncic’s minor injuries have piled up enough to force him to sit this one. Doncic is day-to-day and hopefully he’ll be fine after a day or two or rest. Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke will assume the point guard duties for as long as Doncic is out.

Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday’s game vs. the Nuggets.
Doncic has been a little banged up lately as he assumes the reins for the Mavs. If he can’t go, look for Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke to assume most of the ball-handling duties.
February 13, 2019, 11:44 pmTrey Burke - G - Dallas Mavericks
After having an 18-5-5 line and a solid follow-up performance, Trey Burke played just six minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.
He scored zero points on 0-of-3 shooting in his six minutes, but added two steals and one assist to the box score. He can be left on the wire.
February 10, 2019, 5:50 pmTrey Burke - G - Dallas Mavericks
Trey Burke finished Sunday's win with eight points, two triples and a steal in 17 minutes of action.
Hopefully you didn't drop anything of consequence for Burke after his big 18-5-5 game on Friday. He'll be in the rotation but consistency figures to be an issue here, so Burke is just a deep-league option if you need points. Jalen Brunson started again and had five points, seven assists, a steal, a block and a triple in 14 minutes.
February 8, 2019, 11:33 pmTrey Burke - G - Dallas Mavericks
Trey Burke fared much better in his second game as a Mav on Friday and was impressive in 27 minutes off the bench with 18 points (5-of-9 shooting), five rebounds, five assists, three triples and two steals.
Burke is worth picking up on the strength of this performance. Also, Luka Doncic is a bit banged up lately, dealing with a sore left hand and a right hip contusion, making Burke a viable handcuff flier. Jalen Brunson, who started alongside Doncic, was not much of a factor with five points, three rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer.

Trey Burke was a little more than an afterthought in Wednesday's win over the Hornets with him having just a rebound and an assist to his name in his four minutes on the floor.
Jalen Brunson logged 30 minutes and produced eight points (4-of-11 shooting), seven rebounds, five dimes and two steals. Burke is a drop right now as he does not fit in the Mavs' future plans.
