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)

Bengals | Vontaze Burfict is a question mark (Wed Jun 24, 08:57 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (knee) is working his way back from microfracture surgery on his knee and is viewed as a question mark heading into training camp.

Our View: Burfict exploded in 2013, but injuries took him out of 2014.The knee is a concern and starting off training camp on the PUP list would be concerning. If he's healthy, he should be a fantasy stud, but there seems to be real doubt as to whether he will be healthy.
