EDGE Analysis

Burnett's absence is no surprise after not being able to practice throughout the week due to the groin injury he suffered during the Packers' Week 2 loss to the Vikings. Micah Hyde is next in line to receive extra work at safety with Burnett out.

Burnett tallied nine tackles (eight solo) and a sack in Sunday's victory over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

The nine tackles topped Burnett's career average of 7.1 tackles per game, and the sack was his first since 2014. He has not played 16 games in a season since 2012 and took part in only 11 contests last year, but his tackle totals make him one of the top fantasy options at his position when he is out there.

Burnett finished the 2015 season with 68 tackles (47 solo), two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 11 games.

EDGE Analysis

Burnett started the 2015 season with a lingering calf injury, missing five of the Packer's first six games, so it's important to take the free safety's stat line with a grain of salt. The seventh year player remains a vital part of Dom Capers' defense and he will be on the field making tackles if he can stay injury-free. Since 2011, in seasons where Burnett has played 15 or more regular season games, he has recorded an average of 119.7 tackles and two interceptions, making him a great fantasy option when he is healthy.
