Rex Burkhead works out for Raiders Tuesday

Rex Burkhead worked out for the Raiders on Tuesday, per Field Yates. The veteran back has familiarity with Josh McDaniels from his time in New England.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead spent the last two years as a Houston Texan and primarily found himself in a third-down back role. Burkhead excels in pass protection and could be a valuable asset next to Jimmy G, who is not the most mobile QB. While a Burkhead signing may be beneficial for the Raiders' offense as a whole, the player himself is not a fantasy-viable player heading into 2023.

Rex Burkhead tallies two receptions in Week 15 loss

Rex Burkhead caught two of his four targets for 17 yards in a 30-24 loss to the Chiefs Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Even without the services of Dameon Pierce, the Texans did not have Burkhead log a rushing attempt in the loss to the Chiefs. Fantasy managers should feel comfortable leaving Burkhead on the waiver wire. The Texans will take on the Titans in Week 16.
