Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Burnett practiced in full all week and was previously listed as probable, but this development clouds his availability for Sunday's game. The 25-year-old has certainly been a serviceable IDP option when healthy, averaging more than eight tackles per game so far this season, but he'll make for a somewhat risky option this week given the 8:30 PM ET kickoff.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

With consecutive years of triple-digit tackles, Burnett has arrived as one of the league's elite IDPs in the secondary. The rangy safety has 226 stops (164 solo) over the last two years, and there's no reason to think he won't approach or surpass 100 tackles again in 2013. With just the unproven duo of M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian alongside him on the depth chart, the Packers will call on Burnett to play nearly every snap on defense in 2013, and his IDP reliability is further aided by Aaron Rodgers quickly and frequently leading the Packers to the end zone. That forces opponents to throw the ball to catch up, giving Burnett tackle opportunities as teams feed their receivers in an attempt to mirror Rodgers' pace. While Burnett will struggle to approach his 122 tackles from 2012, he hasn't necessarily reached his ceiling as an IDP. He has just five interceptions in the last two years, but when he played at Georgia Tech, Burnett showed a great deal of ball-hawking ability, intercepting 14 passes in 40 games.

2012

Burnett has won the starting free-safety role in both of his NFL seasons, so his job is entirely secure entering his third year with the Packers. Although the Green Bay defense had a lot of trouble stopping the pass last year, Burnett did quite well from an IDP perspective in 2011. He finished the season with 107 tackles (78 solo), one sack, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. He also intercepted a pass in Green Bay's playoff loss to the Giants, giving him five interceptions in his first 21 NFL games. Burnett was a big-time playmaker in coverage at Georgia Tech, so it wouldn't surprise if he broke out in the interception category this year, particularly with draft additions like outside linebacker Nick Perry (first round) and defensive end Jerel Worthy (second round) providing an upgrade to the Green Bay pass rush, which should result in more off-target passes.

2011

Burnett is a bit of a blank slate after suffering an ACL tear in Week 5 of his rookie season last year. But the athletic safety was highly productive both as a tackler and in coverage at Georgia Tech, and he was good enough in training camp last year to enter the season as a starter. He’ll be unchallenged as a starter in Green Bay, so the youngster should make a good sleeper target for IDP owners looking for a cheap option in the secondary. With Nick Collins playing center field, Burnett should have a decent presence in the box.

2010

Burnett was a third round draft pick in 2010 and could push Atari Bigby for playing time.
