Summary

Morgan Burnett continues to be one of the few elite safeties in both dynasty and redraft formats. His numbers ballooned last season to 93 total tackles, three sacks, and two interceptions - all career highs. Playing alongside Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix frees him to drop into the box and scoop up tackles left behind by an unsettled interior linebacking group. Burnett was also lining up in a hybrid linebacker role more on nickel snaps late in the year. Head Coach Mike McCarthy has promised more of those looks for Burnett going forward this year. If McCarthy keeps his word, Burnett could surpass his tackle totals from last year. If Blake Martinez and Jake Ryan show significant improvement in the middle of the defense, Burnett's numbers could suffer enough to drop him just outside of the elite safety group. (May 30)
