Burnett's had some issues staying healthy in recent years, but has been a consistent DB1 when on the field. The Packers are fielding one of the weakest inside linebacking groups in the league, so expect the team to utilize Burnett in a subpackage linebacker role. He set a career high in interceptions last year with three and chipped in 9 pass deflections as well making him a viable big play threat at the position.

Morgan Burnett's role to expand

Green Bay Packer safety Morgan Burnett took reps as a nickel linebacker during the team's opening week of training camp. "I think Morgan can play two or three positions," defensive coordinator Dom Capers said. "He can play safety, he can come down and play dime. I think he covers very well for a guy with his size. I think he supports the run."

Fantasy Impact

Through three camp practices, Burnett's role change is only in its clinical phase. Owners in IDP leagues should keep a close eye on Burnett's progress, through the preseason, as a move to nickel linebacker would surely increase Burnett's tackling numbers.
