Red Burkhead rushes 12 times for 41 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots’ 37-31 AFC Championship win over the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact:

He also added four receptions for an additional 23 yards. The highlight was a walk-off touchdown run in overtime to end the game. Burkhead saw a lot less carries than Sony Michel, but the Pats ran the ball so much that both backs were able to have fantasy value. That could be true again two weeks from now versus a Rams defense that doesn’t defend the run very well.
