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's status uncertain (Fri May 22, 02:43 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict's (knee) status for the start of training camp is uncertain at this point. Burfict hopes to be ready for camp and does not want to be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Our View: The PUP list to start camp is different from the PUP list to start the regular season. If on the PUP list at the start of training camp, Burfict would be clear to return at any time he's ready. If on the PUP list to start the regular season, Burfict would be forced to miss the first six weeks of the season. We feel he'll be ready for Week 1, but his status for the start of training camp is clearly up in the air.
