Summary

Burfict will enter 2019 as the clear-cut starter on the weak side, but how much he plays and produces is anyone's guess. His once-dynamic career has become a washout of suspensions and serious injuries, and since 2014 he's missed 37 of 80 possible games. Even when on the field, he's seen his tackle numbers fall 3 years in a row, down to just 4.7 per game in 2018. Burfict could rebound, but simply isn't worth the fantasy headache. He's a violent player who's always flirting with a concussion, and he's among the league's higher suspension risks as well. There is plenty of similar playmaking upside at and below his price tag, much with safer and stronger floors. (May 20)
