Burks agreed to a two-year, $5 million contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Burks was drafted by the Packers in the third round of the 2018 Draft, but he never garnered a significant defensive role during his time in Green Bay. Last year, he played a career-high 196 snaps and recorded 36 tackles (24 solo) and half a sack over 17 appearances. He'll likely provide depth behind Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw while also being a top special-teams contributor for the 49ers in 2022.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
The Packers had high hopes for Burks when they selected him in the third round in 2018, but he saw only a few snaps on defense each of the last two years. If he shows more in pass coverage he could find himself on the field on passing downs more often in 2020.
The Packers selected Burks in the third round in 2018 and were hoping he would immediately slot in as a coverage linebacker, but his progress was slow and an injury suffered during the preseason kept him out for Weeks 1 and 2. Burks was eased into action over the next few games, but he did not do enough to maintain a role in the defense, and was on the field for just 18 total snaps over the last eight games of the season. The Packers are hoping for "a big jump" from Burks in 2019, but a pectoral injury suffered in the first preseason game clouds his status for Week 1 and beyond.
It appeared Burks would mainly play a role on passing downs when the Packers selected him in the third round of April's draft, but with fellow LB Jake Ryan out for the year with a knee injury, Burks will be leaned on for far more. He is the favorite to start at inside linebacker alongside Blake Martinez.
