Rex Burkhead quiet in playoff loss to Titans

Rex Burkhead rushed three times for four yards and caught all three of his targets for 32 yards in the Patriots' Wild Card loss to the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead doesn't touch the ball much, but when he does, often creates for himself, and this game was no exception. His usage was not big for fantasy purposes, but he helped the Patriots offense a good bit with his playmaking. Burkhead could be a strong fantasy option with more touches, but given that all three main running backs are signed through at least 2020, Burkhead's role figures to be largely unchanged next season, meaning he won't be a strong fantasy option for 2020 leagues.

Rex Burkhead has strong game in Week 17 loss

Rex Burkhead rushed six times for 48 yards and caught his only target for six yards in the Patriots' Week 17 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead has looked the most explosive of the Patriots backs for several weeks running now, but is plagued by limited usage in a crowded running backs room. Burkhead is likely to remain the third option in the backfield, capping his upside in terms of output during the playoffs.

Rex Burkhead rebounds from early fumble with nice outing

Rex Burkhead rushed five times for 20 yards and a touchdown and caught all four of his targets for 77 yards in the Patriots' Week 16 win over the Bills. Burkhead lost a fumble on the Patriots' first drive of the game after a long catch and run.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead was used with enough regularity to make him a viable play as it turns out, though he's hard to use with much confidence over either Sony Michel or James White. Burkhead's versatility is a nice asset, but his fantasy output is volatile give his unreliable usage.

Rex Burkhead gets involved in win over Cincy

Rex Burkhead rushed six times for 53 yards and a touchdown and caught both of his targets for six yards in the Patriots' Week 15 win over the Bengals.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead got more touches in this game than James White, as the ground game was cruising. Expect Burkhead, who looked solid in this contest, to take more of a backseat against a tougher defense next week in a matchup with Buffalo.

Rex Burkhead quiet in loss to Chiefs

Rex Burkhead rushed seven times for 15 yards in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs. He was targeted once.

Fantasy Impact

There is no real situation where Burkhead is a primary offensive weapon, and he need not be owned in fantasy football.
