News: Vikings wide receiver Stephen Burton, who entered the game with only two catches all season, caught three passes for 22 yards Week 15 at St. Louis. He was targeted four times.
Analysis: The Vikings have been searching for a play-maker at wide receiver since Percy Harvin went down with a severely sprained ankle in Week 9. Burton probably isn't the answer, but at least now they've thrown his name in the hat. His Week 15 performance is no reason for you to consider adding him in Fantasy.
News: Minnesota wide receiver Stephen Burton picked a perfect time for his first catch of the season. Burton hauled in a 7-yard pass from quarterback Christian Ponder in the fourth quarter -- his only reception of the game -- but it wasn't enough as the Vikings lost 23-20 at Indianapolis in Week 2.
Analysis: Aside from standout receiver Percy Harvin, Burton is part of a patchwork receiving corps for Minnesota and played in only three games prior to this season. But he is unlikely to reach the end zone again after his first career score and should be left on waivers in all Fantasy formats.
