Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's odd that Richard was re-signed to the Raiders roster when they said they wanted to get Josh Jacobs more involved in the passing game, as Richard is the primary competition. Not just that, but they then drafted running back/wide receiver Lynn Bowden in the second round. However we slice it, Richard isn't likely to top the 43 targets he got in 2019, which makes him a non-factor in fantasy leagues.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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Richard saw a dip in production with Josh Jacobs on the roster, but he'll always be the passing-downs thorn in Jacobs' side. The Raiders gave Richard a two-year extension this offseason, so despite talk of Jacobs' added involvement in the passing game, Richard should continue to hold his role. Unfortunately, that role isn't worth that much, particularly with Lynn Bowden added to the mix. Richard is worth a look in extremely deep PPR formats, nothing more.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.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Jalen Richard was reduced to a pass-catcher in 2019 with Josh Jacobs and Deandre Washington combining for the vast majority of carries. Concerningly, that role is also on the rocks with Jacobs expected to improve his catching and Lynn Bowden brought in to mess things up further. Richard remains undraftable but may once again pop up as a waiver add in PPR once bye weeks or a Josh Jacobs injury occur.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.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
The Raiders are giving Richard a 2-year deal worth $7 million, source said. He gets up to $8 million with $4.6 million fully guaranteed.
