Morgan Burnett Fantasy Football News 2019

Steelers S Morgan Burnett (groin) is set to play Sunday against the Browns after sitting out the past 4 games. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that rookie Terrell Edmunds will retain his starting job, so we'll see just how big a role Burnett finds.

As expected, Steelers S Morgan Burnett (groin) and LB Vince Williams (hamstring) are inactive for today's game against the Falcons. Each player entered the day doubtful. Burnett's absence means a 3rd straight start for rookie S Terrell Edmunds. Anthony Chickillo looks likeliest to fill in for Williams, though Tyler Matakevich could also enter the picture.

Steelers S Morgan Burnett is inactive for tonight’s game because of a groin injury.

Multiple outlets report that the Steelers are finalizing a deal with free-agent S Morgan Burnett. An IDP force through much of his Green Bay stint, Burnett heads to a defense that hasn't been overly friendly to safety scoring for a while. Combine that with his injury history -- 14 games lost over the past 5 years -- and he looks like no more than a DB2 for 2018 fantasy football drafts at this early stage. Second-year DB Josh Jones looks like the best current bet to take over Burnett's job with the Packers, though we'll see how the rest of the offseason goes. Jones flashed as a rookie, seeing time in DB and ILB roles.

The Packers have officially ruled S Morgan Burnett (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Ravens. It'll be his 2nd straight game lost to this injury, which came the week he returned from 2 games out for a hamstring injury. Josh Jones should start again in his place.

The Packers have ruled S Morgan Burnett out for Week 10 after the veteran suffered a groin injury in Monday night's win over the Lions. The quick decision -- just a day after their Week 9 game -- doesn't bode well for Burnett's Week 11 outlook. Kentrell Brice should start Sunday against the Bears.

The Packers have ruled S Morgan Burnett (hamstring) out for the 2nd straight week. Kentrell Brice played the full game in his absence last time out but didn't offer up much statistically. There's upside against the Saints this Sunday, but you can probably also find stronger options for your IDP lineup.

The Packers have ruled S Morgan Burnett out for Sunday's game at Minnesota. Burnett is dealing with a hamstring injury that kept him out of practice all week. S Josh Jones should see full or nearly full playing time in Burnett's absence and present upside.

Packers S Morgan Burnett suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's win over the Cowboys, limiting him to just two-thirds of his normal playing time. He was not on the field for Wednesday's practice. We have yet to see a further update on his condition, but it's a worrisome situation for a player who has dealt with some lower-body issue every season since 2013. Plan to be without Burnett for Week 6 in your IDP league.

The Packers have ruled OLB Clay Matthews (ankle, hamstring) and S Morgan Burnett (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Lions. That certainly hurts the team D, though it doesn't eliminate the unit's DFS upside as a heavy home favorite against an offense that scored only 15 points vs. Tennessee in Week 2.

Packers S Morgan Burnett missed practice Wednesday and Thursday with a groin injury. We'll see about his Friday participation and status heading into the weekend, as we haven't seen any further word on his condition. Burnett has a bothersome history with nagging lower-body injuries, though. You should confirm alternate plans for your IDP lineup in Week 3.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that the Packers expect to get S Morgan Burnett back in the lineup Sunday night against the Broncos. Burnett has missed 5 of 6 games with a calf injury that originated before the season. Micah Hyde has been playing safety in Burnett's place but will likely return to his slot CB role when Burnett returns. That's expected to push CB Casey Hayward back to an outside corner slot and rookie CB Damarious Randall into a smaller role. Burnett should rejoin S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix as the most reliable IDP options in the Green Bay secondary. We'll see if Hyde can get enough work to retain what has been solid IDP value to this point. Burnett's return certainly shouldn't hurt a team D that leads the league in points allowed. The Packers refer to him as the QB of their defense.

Packers S Morgan Burnett (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Chargers. He'll need to start putting in full practices before we can trust him in IDP lineups.

Packers S Morgan Burnett is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers with the calf injury that has bugged him for weeks. Whereas he started each of the past 2 weeks questionable on the injury report before missing the contests, Burnett put in limited practices all week this time. That's a significant change from missing every practice in Week 5. We'll check on his Sunday status, but the late-afternoon kickoff and recurring nature of the injury will make it tough to wait on Burnett for your IDP lineup.

Just like last week, the Packers on Saturday downgraded S Morgan Burnett (calf) to doubtful for Sunday's game against the Rams. He'll remain an iffy IDP prospect until he starts putting in full practices.

Packers S Morgan Burnett is questionable once again because of the calf injury that has plagued him all year. He didn't practice at all this week, and Week 4 found him downgraded from questionable Friday to doubtful over the weekend. You should plan for some other DB in your IDP lineup.

The Packers on Saturday night downgraded S Morgan Burnett to doubtful with the calf injury that has plagued him through the start of this season. That only adds tackle upside to S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in your IDP league, while giving a slight boost to the Niners' passing outlook.
