2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Packers selected Burks in the third round in 2018 and were hoping he would immediately slot in as a coverage linebacker, but his progress was slow and an injury suffered during the preseason kept him out for Weeks 1 and 2. Burks was eased into action over the next few games, but he did not do enough to maintain a role in the defense, and was on the field for just 18 total snaps over the last eight games of the season. The Packers are hoping for "a big jump" from Burks in 2019, but a pectoral injury suffered in the first preseason game clouds his status for Week 1 and beyond. Read Past Outlooks

Plays reserve role in 2019

January 21, 2020
Burks had 11 tackles (seven solo) in 12 games this season.
ANALYSIS
The 2018 third-round pick missed the first four weeks of the season with a partially torn left pectoral, but he returned for Week 5 and played a minor defensive role the rest of the season. Green Bay's top inside linebackers -- Blake Martinez and B.J. Goodson -- are both poised to hit free agency in March, leaving Burks, Ty Summers and Curtis Bolton (knee) as the remaining players at the position. Burks could enter training camp with a heavily increased role with a strong offseason, but the Packers likely will make outside additions to the position group, whether it be via the draft or free agency.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
It appeared Burks would mainly play a role on passing downs when the Packers selected him in the third round of April's draft, but with fellow LB Jake Ryan out for the year with a knee injury, Burks will be leaned on for far more. He is the favorite to start at inside linebacker alongside Blake Martinez.
