Bengals' Rex Burkhead: Scores twice in lead role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries while catching both of his targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 27-10 win over Baltimore.

Burkhead handled the vast majority of the rushing workload with Jeremy Hill (knee) inactive for the season finale. He didn't pick up more than 17 yards on any one play, but turned consistent modest gains into a fantastic performance. The pending free agent found pay dirt in the first and fourth quarters for his first two touchdowns of the season, helping his stock for this coming offseason. Burkhead's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield and 4.6 yards per carry average on 74 attempts this season make him a desirable asset for teams in need of help at running back.

Bengals' Rex Burkhead: Taking on lead back duties Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead is expected to carry the load at running back Week 17 against the Ravens, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

With Hill limited in Week 16, Burkhead picked up 49 offensive snaps, turning it into 12 carries for 42 yards (while tacking on four catches for 25 yards). Now that Hill is inactive, look for Burkhead to be "the bellcow," with Cedric Peerman and Tra Carson on hand for relief, if needed. It's a tough fantasy matchup, however, as the Ravens have allowed opposing running backs to score just six times all season.

Bengals' Rex Burkhead: Better than Hill in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead led the Bengals in rushing yards in Week 16, taking 12 carries for 42 yards along with four catches for 25 yards.

Burkhead was on the field for most of the second half after Jeremy Hill was ineffective in the first half. Hill nursed an injury for most of the week in practice and might not have been 100 percent for the game. We might see more of Burkhead in Week 17 against the Ravens.

Bengals' Rex Burkhead: Collects 50 yards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead rushed for 32 yards on seven carries and added 18 yards on two catches in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

The outing snapped a two-game streak with at least 10 touches for Burkhead, though he extended his streak of games with at least 50 total yards to three. Burkhead has filled Giovani Bernard's change-of-pace role behind Jeremy Hill, but has yet to find the end zone. He's earning opportunities, however. Burkhead saw a season-high five red-zone rushes and a red-zone target on Sunday.

Bengals' Rex Burkhead: Tallies 51 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead rushed for 45 yards on nine carries and added a six-yard catch in Sunday's win over the Browns.

Burkhead has seen his usage increase by leaps and bounds since Giovani Bernard hit the shelf. The fourth-year back has now reached double-digit touches in back-to-back games. Though Jeremy Hill is still the top dog and Burkhead's yardage and lack of scoring don't quite make him a fantasy dynamo, he's worth keeping an eye on down the stretch as he has slid into Bernard's former role of providing a change of pace and pass-catching complement to Hill.
