The NFL has suspended Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict for the rest of the season for his headshot on Colts TE Jack Doyle Sunday. Burfict has a history of league suspensions for similar offenses, which explains the unprecedented length of this ban. Burfict has 3 days to appeal it, so we'll see whether it changes. Either way, Tahir Whitehead has been the more reliable Oakland LB for playing time and tackles and should be owned in most IDP leagues of at least moderate depth.
Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict got booted in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Colts for an illegal hit. Given his past with the league on such hits, we should probably expect some sort of suspension to follow here.
Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict is questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings with a shoulder injury. Burfict put in limited workouts all week. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (concussion) is inactive for today's game against the Browns. He shouldn't have been in IDP consideration anyway.
Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens after missing the past 2 games. He put in limited practices all week, and we'd bet on the veteran playing. He's still a risky fantasy option even if active, though. Burfict played just 53%, 84% and 63% of Cincinnati's defensive snaps in his 3 appearances so far this season. Burfict has also averaged just 6.6 total tackles per game since the start of last season. Cincinnati will remain without LB Nick Vigil (knee), and MLB Preston Brown (knee) has also been ruled out.
Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict put in a limited practice Wednesday for the 1st time since suffering a hip injury back in Week 7. He missed the past 2 games but could be on track to return Sunday against the Ravens. We'll watch his status through the week. Teammate Nick Vigil remained out Wednesday with his knee injury.
The Bengals have ruled LBs Vontaze Burfict (hip) and Nick Vigil (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Saints. That makes a weak run defense even weaker and adds IDP upside to LBs Jordan Evans and Preston Brown.
The Bengals have ruled LB Vontaze Burfict (hip) out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers. It's not clear exactly how the snaps will be aligned at the OLB spots. MLB Preston Brown looks like the best bet for playing time among Bengals LBs this week. He hasn't been a strong tackle producer, though, and the matchup is nothing special for LB scoring. You should look elsewhere for IDP value this week.
Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict left Sunday night's game against the Chiefs with a hip injury and did not return. We'll check on his status heading into a Week 8 meeting with the Bucs.
Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict has passed his physical and rejoined the team. Burfict opened training camp on the non-football injury list because of a hamstring issue but returns with plenty of time to get ready. Of course, the veteran will still miss the 1st 4 weeks of the regular season because of a PED suspension. Cincinnati lists Jordan Evans as Burfict's primary backup on the initial ("unofficial") depth chart. IDP owners in deeper leagues can consider pairing the 2. Evans topped 80% playing time in 3 straight games last season after OLB Nick Vigil went down.
Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict drew a 4-game suspension Friday for a PED violation. He’ll certainly appeal, but we’ll see how that goes. We’ll also see how the situation affects a Bengals LB corps that added Preston Brown in free agency Friday
Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday's finale against the Ravens. Burfict missed practice all week after suffering the injury against the Lions in Week 16. Cincinnati has allowed 149 rushing yards per game in the 5 contests Burfict has missed this season, so this is good news for Ravens RB Alex Collins.
Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict missed his 2nd straight day of practice Thursday with a shoulder injury that knocked him out of Week 15's win over the Lions. That makes Burfict look unlikely to play in Sunday's finale against the Ravens. Burfict's absence would be bad news for the Bengals run D. He missed clashes with the Bears and Vikings recently. Opponents that combined for 356 rushing yards.
Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict didn't appear on the team's final injury report after Friday's practice, which indicates he has cleared the league concussion protocol. Burfict put in a full practice Friday and should be set to go for Sunday's game against the Lions. That certainly will help the Cincinnati defense, but the Bengals haven't played the run strong all year. Lions RB Theo Riddick remains a solid fantasy option for Week 16. The defense will also benefit from getting CB Dre Kirkpatrick back after 2 games down with a concussion. That makes for a solid top 3 of Kirkpatrick, Darqueze Dennard and William Jackson to challenge Detroit's wideouts.
