Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Burnett went undrafted out of USC but ended up making five appearances for the Jets as a rookie last season, catching 10 passes for 143 yards. While he's on the roster bubble as things currently stand, Burnett has chemistry with franchise quarterback Sam Darnold working in his favor -- the pair linked up for 1,114 yards and nine touchdowns at USC in 2017. The Jets aren't especially deep at wide receiver, so Burnett could get some opportunities to step up should the injury bug strike.
Burnett (6-0, 186 pounds) was one of Sam Darnold's top targets at USC in 2017, leading the Trojans with 1,114 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Though he went undrafted this spring after posting underwhelming numbers at his pro day - including a miserable 4.70 40-yard dash - Burnett was known to be operating at less than full health at that time and he's among the best receivers that didn't hear his name called. However, he's no guarantee to make the 53-man roster in Tennessee and is only worthy of fantasy consideration in dynasty formats.
