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.

Rex Burkhead quiet in SNF loss

Rex Burkhead rushed three times for 15 yards and was targeted once in the Patriots' Week 13 loss to the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead is unlikely to make a difference on a fantasy championship roster in this season, and has nothing more than moderate handcuff appeal.

Rex Burkhead quiet in win over Cowboys

Rex Burkhead rushed twice for three yards and caught two of his five targets for 14 yards in the Patriots' Week 12 win over the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead is the odd man out in the Patriots backfield committee in most weeks and is a tough option to use with any confidence in fantasy football as long as both Sony Michel and James White are active.

Rex Burkhead lightly involved in win over Eagles

Rex Burkhead rushed five times for 14 yards and caught two of his three targets for 34 yards in the Patriots' Week 11 win over the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead is the third wheel in a three-man committee and is not a reliable fantasy asset until that changes. Burkhead has some upside in the even of an injury, but is not startable for now.

Rex Burkhead quiet in SNF loss to Ravens

Rex Burkhead rushed four times for 18 yards in the Patriots' Week 9 loss to the Ravens. He caught one of his two targets for 16 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead, despite tying Sony Michel in touches and gaining a few more yards in this game, is still the clear third back in the offense. He has some handcuff appeal, but that's about it.
