Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


Burfict is a talented player who went undrafted in 2012 due to off field issues. The Bengals gamble on him has paid off big. He got on the field as a rookie due to injuries and his talent quickly became evident. In 2013 he was one of only six players to reach triple digits in solo tackles. At 113-57-3 with 4 takeaways and 8 passes defended, Burfict landed among the top five fantasy linebackers. There has been some noise about him possibly moving inside, but with the emergence of Vincent Rey last season, Burfict is likely to remain on the weak side. Heading into his third season Burfict has been a model citizen off the field and has managed to control his emotions on it for the most part. Barring some sort of meltdown, he should continue to be a top ten fantasy option for the forseeable future (May 19)

Bengals | Vontaze Burfict agrees to extension (Wed Aug 20, 05:24 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict agreed to a multi-year contract extension Wednesday, Aug. 20. Terms of the new deal were not disclosed.

Our View: Burfict had maybe the worst pre-draft season in the last 10 years, only to end up being one of the very best players in his draft class. Many analysts were pronouncing him DOA in the NFL after his fall from the heights of draft projections in the first round, but Burfict has turned the experience into a massive positive.
