Rex Burkhead Totals 15 Rushing Yards

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead carried the ball seven times for 15 yards in the Patriots 23-17 loss to the Chiefs. The offense endured one of its worst performances of the season but Burkhead's snaps went up. He even out-snapped second-year running back Sony Michel and it is fair to question if the Patriots may opt to use more of Burkhead moving forward. Even if his playing time increases, Burkhead will struggle to rise above RB4 status heading into Week 15.

Rex Burkhead Goes For 48 Yards In Week 11

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead struggled in the run game in Week 11, gaining just 14 yards on five carries. However, he had a 30-yard reception that helped make his day look a little better. Overall, through the air, he caught two passes for 34 yards on three targets. Sony Michel led the team in carries with 10, but didn't do much with them, gaining only 33 yards. James White added 20 yards on five carries as well. Burkhead is worth owning in deep leagues as he would have some intriguing upside if something were to happen to Michel or White, but he doesn't have a big enough role to rely on as a starter in most formats at this point.

James White, Julian Edelman, Rex Burkhead Questionable

New England Patriots running back James White (toe), wide receiver Julian Edelman (chest, shoulder) and running back Rex Burkhead (foot) are questionable for Sunday night against the Ravens. Tight ends Ryan Izzo (concussion) and Matt LaCosse (knee) are also questionable. White is the one to watch here, as he was added to the injury report on Friday and was limited in practice. He has one receiving touchdown this year and his salvaged his fantasy value with receptions in PPR leagues, but he'll be more of an RB3/flex this week in danger of losing snaps to Burkhead. Burkhead would become an RB3/flex in PPR leagues if White sits. Edelman will play and has been a high-end WR2 all year. He'll have one of his toughest assignments of the year in Week 9, though, facing Baltimore cornerback Marlon Humphrey in the slot.
