College Salary Cap

Ryan Burns (Q / Stanford)

Ryan Burns is expected to transfer to another school as a graduate student, Jon Wilner of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Impact

As Wilner notes, Burns' impending transfer is made doubly impactful by the fact that 2016 starter Keller Chryst is expected to miss upwards of six months while recovering from knee surgery. Burns, a northern Virginia native, is a former highly touted recruit who struggled in his first season of significant action in 2016, completing 61.1 percent of his passes with a 6.9 YPA to go with five touchdowns and seven interceptions. There is no indication yet as to where Burns intends to transfer.

Older News

Ryan Burns converted 16-of-29 passes for 170 yards and three interceptions and carried five times for minus-27 yards Saturday as Colorado fell to Stanford 10-5 at home.

Impact

While Burns managed to best 150 yards passing for the fourth time this season on Saturday, he also ended up accounting for a career-high three interceptions and a costly red zone fumble in the contest's final quarter. The senior now prepares for the an Oct. 29 matchup at Arizona currently ranked 10th in the Pac-12 in overall pass efficiency (122.6) and having combined for a vexing TD:INT ratio of 3:6 against conference opponents this year. He'll likely fare better than usual against a Wildcat pass defense currently ranked fourth-worst in the league, but not well enough to warrant a start by the vast majority of fantasy owners in Week Nine.
