With Tom Brady out of town, we know the Patriots are going to be running the ball much more. The issue is that they've shown a significant amount of trust in Sony Michel, invested a third-round pick on Damien Harris, and James White isn't going anywhere. That's a lot of mouths to feed. Burkhead is someone you look to if there's injuries to others, but it's unlikely he's an asset with everyone healthy.

Rex Burkhead agrees to rework final year of contract, NE clears cap space

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead has agreed to rework the final year of his contract that drops his base salary from $2.5M to $1.05M in a cap saving move by New England.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead will earn $550K as a signing bonus instead with $400K available in roster bonuses. The reworking of his contract creates almost an additional $1M in cap space for a team that was tight against the cap to begin with. Burkhead will compete for touches amongst a crowded group of RBs in New England that includes Sony Michel, James White, Damien Harris, and Brandon Bolden. He won’t have much fantasy value heading into the final year of his contract unless other guys get hurt.
