Rex Burkhead Registers 32 Receiving Yards In Loss

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead caught three passes for 32 yards in the team's 20-13 loss to the Titans in the Wild Card Round. Six different players recorded a rush from the Patriots backfield but the team couldn't get anything going in the second half. Burkhead is a solid role player but rarely can be counted on to carry the offense for long stretches. He had some nice catch-and-run's in this game but the offense will need a huge makeover in the offseason. Burkhead has value on the Patriots but does not register in most fantasy formats.

Rex Burkhead A Risky Option Saturday

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead should be involved vs the Titans Saturday, but will be a risky play with Sony Michel and James White also expected to see touches. Burkhead has taken a backseat to Michel over the last three weeks getting out-touched 60-24 in those games despite averaging almost a full yard per carry more than Michel. With Michel leading the backfield and White handling passing-down work Burkhead will be a touchdown-dependent play in DFS for a Patriots offense that has struggled to move the ball in recent weeks.

Rex Burkhead Registers 54 Total Yards

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead carried the ball six times for 48 yards and added one catch for six yards in the Patriots loss in Week 17 to the Dolphins. Burkhead continues to produce when his name is called upon, popping off an average of eight yards per rush. The Patriots passing game has flat-lined over the past few weeks and it has opened up more chances for the backfield trio of Sony Michel, James White and Burkhead. The veteran back's touches typically are capped when Michel is healthy but Burkhead will play an important role in the Patriots upcoming playoff run.
