  • Broncos' Michael Burton: Gets two touches in Week 14

    Burton played 14 of the Broncos' 67 snaps on offense and carried once for two yards and hauled in his lone target for a one-yard gain in Sunday's 24-7 win over the Chargers.

    Burton has been active for all 13 of the Broncos' games to date, but Sunday's contest marked just the second time that he's logged more than one touch on offense. The 14 snaps were also one shy of a season high, and Burton will likely continue to have a limited role in a Denver offense that doesn't make frequent use of a fullback.

  • Broncos' Michael Burton: Stuck in blocking role

    Burton went without a carry or target while logging 12 of the Broncos' 75 snaps on offense in Monday's 24-22 win over the Bills.

    Like most fullbacks around the league, Burton rarely contributes as a ball carrier or pass catcher and primarily operates as a lead blocker when he's on the field. Despite being active for all nine of the Broncos' contests to date, Burton has just four carries (for three yards) and one reception (for three yards) to his name.

  • Broncos' Michael Burton: Lands in Denver

    Burton is set to sign a one-year deal with the Broncos, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Burton will reunite with head coach Sean Payton, whom he played for in New Orleans in 2020. As a member of the Chiefs during the 2022 campaign, the veteran fullback handled five carries for seven yards and caught two of three targets for 11 yards. Burton likely won't see enough touches on offense to be a viable fantasy option in 2023.

  • Chiefs' Michael Burton: No yardage in Week 14

    Burton played four snaps on offense and carried once for no gain in Sunday's 34-28 win over the Broncos.

    Burton picked up his first touch on offense since Week 10, when he carried once for a minus-1 yard in the Chiefs' victory over the Jaguars. The fullback remains scarcely used on offense and has accounted for only 18 yards from scrimmage on his seven touches (five carries, two receptions) this season.

  • Chiefs' Michael Burton: Plays two snaps on offense

    Burton lost one yard on his lone carry in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Jaguars.

    Burton remains a core special-teams contributor for the Chiefs, but as the lone fullback on the roster, he typically takes on only a light role on offense. He hasn't played more than nine offensive snaps in any game this season and has just six touches through his nine appearances.

  • Chiefs' Michael Burton: Handling limited role on offense

    Burton carried once for two yards in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Colts.

    The fullback has played just 21 total snaps on offense through the Chiefs' first three contests and has gained eight yards on two carries and another two yards on a reception. Regardless of what other skill-position players the Chiefs may lose to injuries as the season unfolds, Burton is unlikely to be little more than a bit player on offense in 2022.

  • Chiefs' Michael Burton: Remaining in Kansas City

    Burton re-signed with Kansas City on Monday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Burton spent the 2021 season with the Chiefs, and he earned the majority of his playing time on special teams. That should remain the case in 2022, though he did rush the ball eight times for 26 yards while also tallying the first rushing touchdown of his career last season.
