Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Loses appeal of 3-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vontaze Burfict 's three-game suspension was upheld by appeals officer Derrick Brooks, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

As expected, Burfict will miss the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated on-field incidents, culminating with his cheap shot on Antonio Brown in a playoff loss to the Steelers. He's an excellent player, but his value to the Cincinnati Bengals has been dampened by a combination of injuries and careless penalties. He has 14 unnecessary roughness flags and 401 tackles in 47 games through four seasons.

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict suspended three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The NFL has suspended Vontaze Burfict for the first three games of the 2016 season due to repeated violations of safety-related playing rules, the NFL reports.

Burfict has oscillated between brilliant and bone-headed during his four-year career, and Saturday's wild-card defeat to the Steelers was no exception. Although his strip sack of Ben Roethlisberger (a play in which the quarterback was knocked out until the game-winning drive due to a shoulder injury) and interception of backup Landry Jones spurred the Cincinnati Bengals ' comeback bid, he also committed a crucial unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown with 22 second remaining, which compounded with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty from Adam Jones to set up the Steelers' game-winning field goal. On a more serious note, Burfict has been flagged for 14 unnecessary roughness calls since he entered the professional ranks in 2012, seemingly necessitating Monday's action from the NFL. Pending an appeal, he'll begin the suspension in Week 1 of next season.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Has a big day
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Burfict notched seven tackles (five solo), adding a sack and an interception in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Burfict has always been considered one of the best players on the Bengals' defense, but he always has trouble staying healthy. He didn't practice Thursday due to an ankle injury that he suffered last week, but he decided to give it a go Sunday. Burfict came up big for the Bengals once again as he recorded his first sack and first interception of the season. If he can find ways to stay on the field, the fourth-year linebacker can provide solid production as an IDP.
