Expert 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
With Tom Brady out of town, we know the Patriots are going to be running the ball much more. The issue is that they've shown a significant amount of trust in Sony Michel, invested a third-round pick on Damien Harris, and James White isn't going anywhere. That's a lot of mouths to feed. Burkhead is someone you look to if there's injuries to others, but it's unlikely he's an asset with everyone healthy.Remember when Thompson had an incredible preseason and everyone wanted to draft him as the potential starter in this backfield? One year and 46 touches later, no one is drafting the second-year running back. He'd need multiple injuries to find his way into fantasy relevance, as both Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Damien Williams are well ahead of him on the depth chart.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Rex Burkhead looked like he was headed for something big after a strong 2017 season, then Sony Michel arrived. Burkhead is now one of many Pats TD vultures who will have some interesting weeks but never be startable without at least one major injury in front of him. He's best left undrafted and untouched.Last season's totally unwarranted hype surrounding 6th round rookie Darwin Thompson had predictable results. The little running back is at best a deep pass catching option with the drafting of elite prospect Clyde Edwards-Helaire.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Burkhead has never topped 94 touches in a season, and has managed to play just 31 games in his three years with the Patriots. He'll turn 30 years old before the season, and will need to compete for touches with Sony Michel, Damien Harris, and James White in an offense that is no longer headed by Tom Brady. There's no reason to give Burkhead a look for fantasy purposes this year.Thompson has talent and plays in an outstanding system for running backs, but there's almost no chance he'll have fantasy value this year. Clyde Edwards-Helaire will lead the way in the Kansas City backfield, and DeAndre Washington and Darrel Williams will also compete for touches. Thompson would have potential if he ever saw enough of an opportunity, but there's little chance of that happening in 2020.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Burkhead's going to remain a part of this complicated Patriots backfield, but he's not going to be involved enough to be worth drafting. He can remain on your waiver wire this season.Thompson was incredibly hyped up last year, but he was never given the opportunity. Now that Clyde Edwards-Helaire is in town, it's unlikely that we ever see Thompson involved in this offense.
