Brian Burns scores on fumble recovery

Brian Burns finished Sunday’s 34-27 win over Jacksonville with three total tackles (14), a sack (3.5), a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

Burns is heating up in Carolina and owners in dynasty leagues should take notice. He is currently second on the team in sacks with 3.5 through Week 5. He isn’t worth starting on a regular basis, but if a bench spot is open Burns is worth adding.

Brian Burns selected No. 16 by Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers have selected defensive end Brian Burns with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The Carolina Panthers have addressed their need on the edge. Brian Burns is an explosive speed rusher who quieted size concerns by weighing in 20 lbs., heavier than expected at the NFL Combine. Burns has great closing speed as evidenced by his 67 pressures in 2018, a mark that placed him third among defensive ends.
