2019–20 Fantasy Outlook
Burns had a solid, yet not quite spectacular rookie season on the PGA Tour this past year. He earned over $1 million, carded six top-10s and most importantly, secured his card for the upcoming season. His best finish came in the fall however and while he did post six top-10s, he was more of a hit or miss type of guy last season. There could be something there, but it's too early too tell. It's probably best to pass on Burns this season in salary cap formats. Read Past Outlooks
Listed in Memorial field
May 31, 2021
Burns (back) is listed in the field for this week's Memorial Tournament.
ANALYSIS
Burns was forced to withdraw during his first round at the PGA Championship due to a back injury, but he's slated to return this week at Muirfield Village, barring any setbacks. Prior to the WD at Kiawah Island, Burns placed T39-Win-2 from the RBC Heritage through the AT&T Byron Nelson. His track record at the Memorial is less inspiring, however, posting results of WD-81 in two career appearances.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The LSU product was named a first-team All-American and recipient of the Jack Nicklaus Player of the Year award as the NCAA's top golfer during the 2016-17 season. He not only won on the Web.com Tour as a rookie in 2018, but also appeared in 11 PGA Tour events including a top-10 at the Honda Classic. Burns led the Web.com Tour in both birdie average and putting average, so he'll be a candidate to make some noise with a full schedule at the next level.
