Burnett finished the 2015 season with 68 tackles (47 solo), two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 11 games. 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.
Burnett tallied a team-high 13 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's Wild Card win over the Redskins. Burnett reached double digits in tackles for the second time this season. The only other time he reached the double digit tackles was against the Cardinals, a reassuring sign for the Packers' defense as they head into Saturday's matchup.
Burnett racked up 10 tackles (eight solo) and recovered a fumble in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Burnett reached double digits in tackles Sunday for the first time all season. He has just 60 tackles on the season, but did tally 18 (15 solo) -- as well as four pass deflections -- over the last two weeks.
Burnett made eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's victory over the Raiders. Burnett made just one tackle in Week 14, but he got back on track Sunday, tying his second best tackle day of the season with the eight stops. Burnett had 50 tackles and two forced fumbles in nine games this season, but he has not intercepted a pass or recorded a sack.
Burnett made seven tackles (five solo) in Thursday's victory over the Lions. Burnett now has 41 tackles (27 solo) in seven games. He was slow out of the gate to begin the season as he was dealing with a calf injury, but now appears to be at full strength which could make him an asset in leagues that use IDPs.
