Fantasy Impact:

Burkhead signs with Houston and joins a crowded backfield that includes David Johnson, Mark Ingram, Phillip Lindsay, and Dontrell Hilliard. He underwent knee surgery on December 1st but is progressing well in his recovery. The 30-year-old RB rushed for 274 yards and three touchdowns on 67 attempts across 10 games for the Patriots in 2020. He also hauled in 25 receptions for 192 yards and three touchdowns. Burkhead’s signing with the Texans gives fantasy managers another reason to avoid Houston’s backfield altogether.
