Wide ReceiverWR
Alabama Crimson Tide
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Burton’s transfer from Georgia to Alabama was successful, at least in terms of his individual production. Burton set career-highs across the board in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Burton caught 40 passes for 677 yards and seven touchdowns for the Tide. He led Alabama in receiving yards and was second on the squad in both receptions and receiving scores. Burton decided against taking his talents to the NFL, instead opting to return to the Tide. Ja’Corey Brooks also returns alongside Burton, but the wide receiving unit is unusually thin and raw after that, especially with the transfers of Traeshon Holden, JoJo Earle and Christian Leary. While this could mean even more targets for Burton than a season ago, it also must be noted that quarterback Bryce Young is gone, and likely successor Jalen Milroe is much more of a dual-threat option than pocket passer. That could negatively impact Burton’s opportunities and production. Read Past Outlooks
Declares for 2024 NFL Draft

Burton has put his name in the 2024 NFL Draft, Mike Rodak of 247Sports.com reports
ANALYSIS
Burton turned in his best season to date in 2023, racking up 39 catches for 798 receiving yards and eight touchdowns, with the latter two both representing career-best marks. The 6-foot senior sports solid body control around the sidelines and solid route-running ability, but he doesn't necessarily have game-breaking speed. The majority of mock drafts suggest Burton will go somewhere in the third or fourth round, though the combine and interviews can impact his draft stock.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
Burton transferred from Georgia to Alabama this offseason and now links up with Bryce Young and gets to play in a more explosive, high-volume passing game than he did in Athens. Burton’s 2021 production was sapped by nagging injuries but his talent is undeniable when healthy. With Jameson Williams and John Metchie gone, there are tons of targets up for grabs at Alabama and Burton is a prime candidate to take on a heavy share. Alabama of course has other talented options but Burton projects to be the No.1 target for Bryce Young, and that in and of itself is fantasy gold.
George Pickens’ ACL injury puts the pressure on Burton as the No.1 target in the Georgia offense. Burton showed signs that he can handle that role with his breakout alongside quarterback JT Daniels late in 2020, though. He caught 17 of 25 targets for 274 yards and two scores in four games with Daniels, though it’s worth noting 197 of those came against Mississippi State. Regardless, with Pickens out, Burton has the tools and the familiarity with his quarterback to thrive as the WR1 in Athens this season even if Daniels will have other talented options at his disposal.
