Burnett signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Jets on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Burnett appeared in five games as an undrafted rookie in 2018 and could continue to work his way up the depth chart with the Jets. As things sit he appears on the fringe of the roster and will need a quality camp and some special teams contributions to earn himself a Week 1 spot.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Burnett (6-0, 186 pounds) was one of Sam Darnold's top targets at USC in 2017, leading the Trojans with 1,114 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Though he went undrafted this spring after posting underwhelming numbers at his pro day - including a miserable 4.70 40-yard dash - Burnett was known to be operating at less than full health at that time and he's among the best receivers that didn't hear his name called. However, he's no guarantee to make the 53-man roster in Tennessee and is only worthy of fantasy consideration in dynasty formats.
