Rex Burkhead inactive for Thursday Night Football

Patriots running back Rex Burkhead is inactive for the team's Week 6 matchup against the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football as he continues to deal with a foot injury.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead will now miss his second straight game with a foot injury. With the team having 10 days off before a Week 7 matchup against the Jets, he should have a chance to return for that contest.

Rex Burkhead (foot) doubtful to play Thursday vs. New York

Rex Burkhead will likely be inactive for Thursday Night Football in Week 6. The Patriots have not yet made this announcement official, but league sources seem confident that Burkhead will miss.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead should be removed from lineups unless he gets a last-minute "active" status. Those who roster Sony Michel should expect an uptick in work. The same goes for those rostering James White.

Rex Burkhead (foot) gets in limited practice

New England Patirots running back Rex Burkhead was limited in their Wednesday practice session.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead got in limited sessions last week before being ruled out, so his designation is of the truly questionable variety. He would be in a good spot for production with the Patriots down Phillip Dorsett. With that being said, there is absolutely no reason for the Patriots to risk an aggravation of the injury in an easy matchup against the New York Giants. This is a situation to monitor for those who plan on deploying Burkhead in season long redraft, or single game DFS contests.

Rex Burkhead (foot) ruled out Week 5

Rex Burkhead (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday’s Week 5 contest against the Redskins.

Fantasy Impact

The Patriots will be cautious with Burkhead, who limited at practice all week. Sony Michel figures to get the bulk of the carries Sunday, Brandon Bolden and Damien Harris could see some additional carries as well with Burkhead out.

Rex Burkhead listed as questionable for Week 5

Rex Burkhead (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Washington after logging limited practice sessions all week.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead is expected to play this week, but will join James White and Sony Michel as part of a crowded New England backfield. He is a hit-or-miss fantasy option as his touches are dictated by game flow and matchup-specific game plans.
