Rex Burkhead Tallies 68 Total Yards Against Miami

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead caught two passes for 47 yards and added 21 rushing yards in the team's blowout win over the Dolphins. It is early in the season but Burkhead has somehow passed veteran James White on the depth chart. Burkhead has ability running and catching the football and has succeeded in being a complementary piece thus far. Burkhead does not possess a ton of fantasy value but will have an active role in a powerful offense moving forward.

Rex Burkhead Could Steal Touches In Week 2 Backfield

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead will try and replicate a productive Week 1 performance this Sunday against the Dolphins. Burkhead led the Patriots with 44 rushing yards and added five catches for 41 yards. He will go up against a Dolphins Defense in Week 2 that allowed a combined 34.9 fantasy points to opposing running backs last week. Teammate Sony Michel is, by far, the most talented runner in the Patriots backfield but Burkhead will certainly see his share. The veteran could be looking at 10-15 touches once again, especially if the Patriots build a huge lead early.

Rex Burkhead Leads Patriots With 44 Rushing Yards

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead carried the ball eight times for 44 yards in the team's 33-3 blowout win over the Steelers in Week 1. Burkhead also added five catches for 41 yards in a highly active performance. Plenty of buzz out of training camp led fantasy owners to believe that teammate Sony Michel would be the lead back to start the regular season but Burkhead proved to be the most effective. The veteran ran hard and kept the Steelers Defense off balance. Michel is the most talented back in the Patriots backfield but, for Week 1, Burkhead found the most success. Burkhead touched the ball 10 times, a slightly high number moving forward from a fantasy perspective.
