12/8/2014 9:16:00 PM
Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks will start on Monday against the Kings.
Insight: Burks is going to eventually need sugery on his shoulder, but apparently he has opted for the option to wait on going under the gun. Fantasy owners must now monitor how he plans hurt.
 
12/8/2014 3:49:00 PM
Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks (shoulder) took part in the Monday morning shootaround and might play tonight.
Insight: More likely he sits another game and comes back later in the week. Burks has averaged 13.3 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 3.0 apg over the first 18 contests. Rodney Hood will again shift from small forward to get the start at shooting guard, if Burks sits again.
 
12/5/2014 2:05:00 PM
Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks (shoulder) will sit out another game Friday.
Insight: Burks has averaged 13.3 ppg, 4.5 rpg, 3.0 apg over the first 18 contests. Rodney Hood will again shift from small forward to get the start at shooting guard, but he will draw only low-end interest.

Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks, who had hauled in 24 rebounds over two games last week, has reverted to his old habits.
Insight: Burks has averaged 3.7 rebounds over his last three contests and with him not scoring a lot he's struggling to be fantasy worthy.
 
11/21/2014 12:06:00 PM
Description: In case you hadn't noticed, Jazz guard Alec Burks has hauled in 24 rebounds over the past two games.
Insight: Double-digit rebounding guards don't come around very often. It appears his coach challenged him to be more aggressive and the results are stunning. Added to his 14.8 ppg and 3.0 apg, if he can keep it up, Burks could turn out to be a fantasy stud.
 
11/19/2014 9:23:00 AM
Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks made fantasy owners happy on Tuesday night.
Insight: He was 5-of-8 from the field, 8-of-9 from the line, and 2-of-3 from downtown for 20 points. Burks also had 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks, and three turnovers. Owners should not expect him to have double-figure rebounds very often, but will take it nonetheless.
 
11/16/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks had a double-double on Saturday against the Raptors.
Insight: That doesn't really mean Burks had a great game. He had the weakest double-double a player can have with 10 points and 10 rebounds, and he shot just 4-for-11 from the field and 1-for-4 at the free-throw line.

Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks scored a team-high 22 points in Wednesday's loss to Atlanta.

10/16/2014 5:10:00 PM
Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks should be targeted towards the end of fantasy drafts.
Insight: He should give owners production in the points per game department, as he averaged 14.0 last season. However, none of his other numbers really stand out, making Burks a one-trick pony heading into the season.

Description: Jazz guard Alec Burks played 29 minutes and had 18 points Tuesday despite moving back to the bench with Gordon Hayward (hip) back in the starting lineup.
Insight: Burks started all five games Hayward missed and averaged 18.8 ppg. He should still have fantasy value even though he'll coming off the bench going forward. In his last 26 games, Burks has averaged 28.5 minutes, 14.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.7 threes.
