    Packers' Morgan Burnett: Finishes 2015 season with 68 combined tackles and two forced fumbles

    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.

    Packers' Morgan Burnett: Records seven tackles in Week 13 win

    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.

    Burnett (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Minnesota, Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin reports. Burnett has returned to form, at least in the tackle department, with 17 stops in the last two contests. It's only a matter of time before the sixth-year pro gathers a turnover, though the Vikings have committed the fourth-fewest (nine, to be exact) to date.

    Burnett made nine tackles (three solo) and deflected a pass in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

    Packers' Morgan Burnett: Active for second time this season

    Burnett (calf) is active for Sunday's game in Denver, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Listed as probable on the final injury report, Burnett will make his second appearance of the season. He won't necessarily have an every-down role, as Micah Hyde played well in his absence.

    Packers' Morgan Burnett: Probable for Sunday

    Burnett (calf) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in Denver, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. With Burnett poised to make just his second appearance of the season, Micah Hyde will likely surrender the starting gig, though he may still have a role in nickel packages. There is a bit of risk this week, but Burnett's track record as an IDP standout is hard to argue with.
