2019 Fantasy Outlook
Pittsburgh sent a clear message to Burns when they declined to pick up the option on his rookie contract, making him a free agent after this season. The former first-round draft pick saw a 68 percent decrease in defensive snaps and was relegated to special teams after Week 6, and the signing of free agent Steven Nelson further reduces his fantasy value.

Burns signed a one-year contract with the Bears on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
Considering Burns finished the 2019 season as a healthy inactive, it's not much of a surprise to see him only elicit a one-year deal. The 2016 first-round pick was a massive disappointment in the Steelers' secondary, but he won't be asked to do as much with obvious starters Kyle Fuller and Buster Skrine already in tow in Chicago.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2016
Entering his third season, Burns has four interceptions and 26 passes defended. He will once again take-up residence in Pittsburgh’s defensive backfield, which ranked fifth best against the past last season. He should put-up decent fantasy numbers this season, although not enough to merit serious IDP consideration.
Burns had a solid rookie season and is slated to start at cornerback in 2017, but off-field troubles with the law could cause him to miss some time if the league opts to act. He was an integral part of a much-improved pass defense and should continue to put-up decent fantasy numbers this season.
Expected to compete with Doran Grant for work in nickel packages, the first round draft pick may have an opportunity for regular playing time opposite William Gay after Senquez Golson suffered a training camp injury that could have him miss most of the season. Pittsburgh is hopeful that Burns can help improve their 30th ranked pass defense.
