Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Burkhead saw an impressive 18 carries last week for Houston in their blowout win over Tennessee, which was good enough for the 9th most at the RB position in Week 11, but it only resulted in 40 total yards. With no involvement in the receiving game, plus the state of the overall offense he plays in, Burkhead holds very little upside week in and week out. The fact that Phillip Lindsay is no longer in town makes Burkhead a bit more intriguing from a redraft perspective, but you should only be considering him if you are in an absolute pinch. He can be viewed as a low-end RB3 this week. 
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
A whopping 18 touches last week and Phillip Lindsay has been released.
