News: Burks scored just two points (1-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt) with four rebounds and three assists in the loss to the Pelicans on Saturday. Impact: Burks has scored 10 points or less in four out his last five games, and has ranked well outside the top 100 for the majority of this season. He's a borderline option in most fantasy leagues for now until he can turn in more consistent production.(RotoWire, )

News: Burks was directly challenged by coach Quin Snyder to grab more rebounds and has since responded with 24 rebounds over his last two games, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Impact: Burks' previous season-high for rebounding was only six before Snyder offered up the challenge for the shooting guard to be more aggressive on the boards. The 23-year-old has certainly responded to the challenge but it remains to be seen whether or not this will have a long-lasting effect. If it does, Burks will become one of the better options at shooting guard as he already averages 14 points per game as it is.(RotoWire, )

He was averaging 13.5 points in his prior 11 games and had 10 or fewer in three of his previous four.(STATS, 00:18am)

News: Burks scored 20 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT), with 14 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 38 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Thunder. Impact: Not only did Burks lead the Jazz in scoring on Tuesday, but he was one rebound shy of leading them in rebounding as well. He's playing big minutes right now, and taking advantage of his opportunities. Burks is also becoming more and more consistent as the season rolls on it seems.(RotoWire, )

News: Burks contributed 10 points (4-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-4 FT), 10 rebounds, and three assists in the loss to the Raptors on Saturday. Impact: Burks is getting a lot of playing time (at least 36 minutes in his last five games), but isn't doing a great deal with the extra playing time. His previous high in rebounds was six and he has only hit better than half of his shots twice in 11 games.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 12, 2014
News: Burks scored 22 points (9-15 FG, 1-5 3P, 3-3 FT) with three assists, two rebounds and a steal in 37 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Hawks. Impact: After failing to score in double-digits for the first time on Monday, Burks bounced back with his highest scoring effort of the season. He hasn't exactly taken his game to another level after signing his big contract extension, but at least Burks hasn't regressed from last year.(RotoWire, )
