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.Ito Smith is starting to fall behind Brian Hill and to some extent Qadree Ollison in the race to be Todd Gurley's backup. Given Gurley's injury situation, that's a pity as it's a role which could bear fruit at some stage this season. Sadly, Smith really shouldn't be rostered in most leagues as it's hard to foresee a workhorse role in his future.
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.Some are automatically assuming that Smith is the handcuff to Todd Gurley, but I wouldn't be so sure. The Falcons were talking about benching Smith prior to him getting injured last year. It's not like Brian Hill did a lot to change their mind, but it's likely they'd split the carries among them.
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.Smith could factor in as part of a committee with Brian Hill if Todd Gurley were to miss time with an injury, but he's unlikely to be particularly valuable even in that situation. Smith can remain on your waiver wire for the time being.
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.Smith has been Devonta Freeman's primary backup for two years, but has never seen more than 14 touches in a game. He'll again play second fiddle in Atlanta, this time to Todd Gurley. Even if Gurley were to get injured, however, Smith would likely split time with Brian Hill, making him only a low-end handcuff who isn't worth rostering in fantasy leagues.
