Summary

Burfict shocked the fantasy world when he seemingly came from nowhere to be a top ten linebacker in 2013. That season he finished with 113 solo tackles, 57 assists, 5 takeaways, 3 sacks, 8 passes defended and a score. Unfortunately Burfict's encore last season was a rocky road. Concussion issues followed by a knee injury that would eventually lead to micro-fracture surgery, have him looking at the possibly of opening training camp on the PUP list. If he can get and remain healthy Burfict is a fantasy stud. The knee is the immediate concern but the fact that he had at least two concussions in a short period of time, could be just as serious an issue. (May 23)
