Active in win
DPort Adelaide Power
August 1, 2021
Burton recorded one behind to go with 22 disposals (18 kicks, four handballs) and made nine marks during Sunday's 100-73 win over GWS.
ANALYSIS
Burton wasn't much to shout about all season but he's done better with over 100 fantasy points scored in two of his last three matches. As he's also topped 22 disposals in these games, it's worth tracking him in the final rounds of the season.
Team-high nine marks v. Demons
DPort Adelaide Power
July 8, 2021
Burton filed 14 disposals, nine marks and a tackle, inside 50 and clanger each Thursday as Port Adelaide fell to Melbourne 86-55 at Adelaide Oval.
ANALYSIS
Burton failed to reach 20 disposals for a eighth-straight showing on Thursday, yet posted his second-highest mark total of the year as Port Adelaide's leader in that respective category. The defender has now bested 70 points in back-to-back games for the first time since early April and heads into Round 18 averaging 66.9 points an appearance, 81st-highest among those playing at his position.
Available for selection
DPort Adelaide Power
June 8, 2021
Burton has been cleared for selection in Round 13 against Geelong after overcoming a knee injury.
ANALYSIS
Burton missed Round 12 following an injury picked up two weeks ago but has since made a full recovery for what should be a highly competitive game. With only two games of more than 80 fantasy points to his name, Burton isn't exactly the most valuable defender on the Power.
Expected to return on time

Knee
May 31, 2021
Burton (knee) is expected to be available in Round 13 against Geelong, according to his club's medical report.
ANALYSIS
Burton may miss a game if there wasn't a bye for Port this weekend, but extended rest means he likely won't miss any time at all. Though he averages 17.3 disposals per game this season, his recent form hasn't been as impressive and will need to improve to make him worth selection in fantasy.
Hurts knee in win

Knee
May 30, 2021
Burton hurt his knee during the Round 11 win over Fremantle, according to the AFL.com match report.
ANALYSIS
Fortunately, there's an extra weekend for Burton to recover thanks to a mid-season bye, but he'll still undergo scans this week to determine the severity of his injury. A season average of 17.3 disposals per game offers decent low-to-mid tier value for Burton when he's fit.
