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.

Rex Burkhead quiet in Week 14 loss

Rex Burkhead tallied negative three rushing yards on two attempts and caught his lone target for five yards in a loss to Dallas.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead and Dare Ogunbowale continue to see minimal snaps weekly. With Dameon Pierce commanding the bulk of the work in the Houston backfield, Burkhead can safely be left on the waiver wire.

Rex Burkhead inactive for Week 13

Rex Burkhead is not active for the Texans' game against the Browns because of a concussion.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead practiced fully on Friday but it appears he was unable to clear the concussion protocol in time. His absence should mean more touches for Dameon Pierce in a soft matchup, though that hardly guarantees success as shown in Houston's recent games.
