Rex Burkhead extended through 2022

The Texans have reportedly signed running back Rex Burkhead to a one-year extension through the 2022 season.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead has been an important part of the Texans' backfield. He totaled 507 scrimmage yards while serving as the team's No. 1 back over the last seven games. For what it's worth, fantasy managers should view him as a mid-range RB3 in Week 18 before re-assessing ahead of the 2022 season.

Rex Burkhead explodes in Week 16 win

Houston Texans' RB Rex Burkhead rushed 22 times for 149 yards and two touchdowns, while adding two receptions in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

With David Johnson again ruled out, Burkhead finally made the most of his opportunity. Not only did he lead the team in touches, but also yards and touchdowns. While the volume is there, fantasy managers shouldn't necessarily count on a repeat of this in the fantasy championship.

Rex Burkhead sees 16 carries in Week 15 win

Houston Texans' RB Rex Burkhead rushed 16 times for 41 yards and caught 1-of-3 targets for six yards in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead was ruled out by coach David Culley earlier in the week, but still ended up playing. In an odd situation, he still led the team in touches. While the volume is there, fantasy managers shouldn't necessarily count on him in the fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead was ruled out by coach David Culley earlier in the week, but now he's playing. It's an odd situation, which means fantasy managers shouldn't necessarily count on him to begin the fantasy playoffs.

Rex Burkhead (hip, quad) listed as questionable for Week 15

Texans running back Rex Burkhead (hip, quad) was limited on Friday and is officially listed as questionable ahead of Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead has totaled 205 scrimmage yards over his last three games. There seems to be some confusion surrounding his status, though. On Friday morning, head coach David Culley declared that Burkhead wouldn't play, but the Texans' official injury report lists him as questionable. Fantasy managers should monitor the inactives report on Sunday morning. If he can't play, David Johnson would start with Royce Freeman also getting involved.
