Tests positive for COVID-19

October 3, 2020

ANALYSIS
The Saints learned late Saturday that Burton tested positive after arriving in Detroit. Alvin Kamara was one of several players sitting next to Burton on the plane, according to the report. With the news of Burton’s positive test, it’s possible that Sunday’s game between the Saints and Lions could be postponed to Monday or Tuesday, or moved past Week 4. Burton is obviously out for Sunday’s game if it does move forward on schedule.

Past Fantasy Outlooks




Burton’s entering his third year in the league, and he’s carried the football four times for two yards. He’ll be competing with rookie Freddie Stevenson for a roster spot. Should he make the team, he’ll likely see limited snaps, and he’s unlikely to see many rushing attempts, as he’ll primarily be a blocker.

Burton was rarely relied upon to rush the football in 2015, and, now entering his second season in the league, that doesn’t figure to change in 2016; the Lions simply prefer to utilize more traditional running backs in a “big-back” type of role. Hence, short-yardage duties will likely be allotted to the likes of either Stevan Ridley or Zach Zenner. While Burton may see opportunities to catch checkdown passes out of the backfield, he is not an imposing threat to vulture goal-line rushing attempts and is firmly off the fantasy radar.

At first blush, a rookie fullback/H-back shouldn’t draw any attention, but offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi was part of teams in New Orleans that utilized fullbacks much more extensively than competitors. From 2011-2103, Saints fullback Jed Collins scored seven total touchdowns and H-Back David Thomas added five more in 2012. Burton caught 47 passes out of the backfield during his career at Rutgers, making it into the end zone three times.
