Gets two touches in Week 14
FBDenver Broncos
December 13, 2023
Burton played 14 of the Broncos' 67 snaps on offense and carried once for two yards and hauled in his lone target for a one-yard gain in Sunday's 24-7 win over the Chargers.
ANALYSIS
Burton has been active for all 13 of the Broncos' games to date, but Sunday's contest marked just the second time that he's logged more than one touch on offense. The 14 snaps were also one shy of a season high, and Burton will likely continue to have a limited role in a Denver offense that doesn't make frequent use of a fullback.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2017
2016
2015
Burton has held a lead blocking role for four different teams over the last six seasons and will add a fifth in Kansas City for the 2021 campaign, assuming he holds on to a roster spot out of training camp. He doesn't typically present much upside as a rusher or receiver, posting a maximum of seven carries (2020) in a season and at most six targets (2015).
Burton's entering his third year in the league, and he's carried the football four times for two yards. He'll be competing with rookie Freddie Stevenson for a roster spot. Should he make the team, he'll likely see limited snaps, and he's unlikely to see many rushing attempts, as he'll primarily be a blocker.
Burton was rarely relied upon to rush the football in 2015, and, now entering his second season in the league, that doesn’t figure to change in 2016; the Lions simply prefer to utilize more traditional running backs in a “big-back” type of role. Hence, short-yardage duties will likely be allotted to the likes of either Stevan Ridley or Zach Zenner. While Burton may see opportunities to catch checkdown passes out of the backfield, he is not an imposing threat to vulture goal-line rushing attempts and is firmly off the fantasy radar.
At first blush, a rookie fullback/H-back shouldn't draw any attention, but offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi was part of teams in New Orleans that utilized fullbacks much more extensively than competitors. From 2011-2103, Saints fullback Jed Collins scored seven total touchdowns and H-Back David Thomas added five more in 2012. Burton caught 47 passes out of the backfield during his career at Rutgers, making it into the end zone three times.
