Deontay Burnett solid in final preseason game

Deontay Burnett caught three of his four targets for 40 yards in the Jets' preseason victory over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Burnett should make the final roster, but without a personnel shakeup such as an injury, as a significant uphill battle to playing time. He should not be drafted in fantasy leagues.

Deontay Burnett scores in win over Falcons

Deontay Burnett caught two of his three targets for 24 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' preseason win over the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Burnett is a nice deep name to know, but has no value in "standard" leagues (12 teams, ~16 roster spots). However, for dynasty leagues or very deep formats, Burnett is a name to monitor. He played college football at USC with Sam Darnold, so if any under-the-radar receiver on the Jets could ascend, there's a clear path for Burnett to be that guy.

Deontay Burnett hauls in four passes in 2019 preseason debut

Deontay Burnett caught all four of his targets for 12 yards in the Jets' preseason loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Burnett happens to be a former college teammate of QB Sam Darnold, and flashed a bit in Week 16 last year. Without changes to the depth chart, he won't be relevant in 2019 either, but of the non-starters, he's the name to watch for the Jets' WRs.

Deontay Burnett leads Jets in receiving in final game of 2018

Deontay Burnett caught all five of his targets for 73 yards in the Jets' Week 17 loss to the Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Burnett has surfaced a few times this year, only due to injuries forcing him to play meaningful snaps. He was a decent receiver at USC in his college days, where he conveniently played with Jets QB Sam Darnold. Unless the Jets jettison other WRs and don't bring in any talent, it's still unlikely that Burnett earns a starter role in 2019. However, Andre Roberts, Quincy Enunwa, and Jermaine Kearse are all pending free agents, so you never know.

Deontay Burnett leads Jets in receiving vs. Bears

Deontay Burnett caught all four of his targets for 61 yards in the Jets' Week 8 loss to the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Burnett is trending up, but is no sure thing now that the Jets have added Rishard Matthews. He can be stashed in deeper leagues, but it's too risky to do anything more just yet.
