Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Effectively complements Michel
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead rushed seven times for 43 yards and brought in both of his targets for 15 yards in the Patriots' 13-3 win over the Rams in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday.

Burkhead out-touched James White by five carries, serving as Sony Michel's primary backup and making a pivotal 26-yard run on the game-clinching drive. The versatile veteran struggled during the 2018 regular season, averaging just 3.3 yards per carry while dealing with a neck injury and sharing time with both Michel and White. However, Burkhead is on the books for a modest $3 million in 2019, so he has a good chance to hang on to a roster spot next season.

Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Logs 12 carries in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead carried 12 times for 41 yards and two TDs and hauled in all four of his targets for 23 yards in Sunday's 37-31 AFC Championship win over the Chiefs.

In chilly game conditions in Kansas City, Burkhead was a key cog in the Patriots' game script, while working behind Sony Michel (29 carries) and along with change-of-pace ace James White (four catches). Looking ahead, Burkhead will remain involved in the team's backfield plans against the Rams in Super Bowl LIII, but game flow in that contest could well result in a dip in volume for the versatile back, who previously logged four carries and one catch in New England's divisional-round win over the Chargers.

Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Catches TD pass Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead carried five times for 14 yards and added an 18-yard TD reception in Sunday's 38-3 win over the Jets.

Burkhead, who was on the field for 17 plays on offense in the contest, was once again out-snapped in Week 17 by both James White (27) and Sony Michel (25). The 28-year-old -- who missed a good chunk of time this season with a neck injury -- finishes up the 2018 campaign with 57 carries for 186 yards and 14 catches (on 20 targets) for 131 yards and a TD in eight games. Burkhead -- who is under contract with the Patriots through the 2020 campaign -- adds depth and versatility to New England's backfield, but as the playoffs approach, he isn't a reliable fantasy option as long as both Michel and White remain healthy.

Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Gets 17 touches in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead rushed 13 times for 39 yards and added four catches for 40 yards on five targets while also losing a fumble in Sunday's 24-12 win over the Bills.

Burkhead was outplayed by both Sony Michel and James White on the ground, with both of those alternatives gaining more rushing yards and scoring a touchdown apiece. While Burkhead was New England's receiving option of choice out of the backfield this time, it wouldn't be surprising to see him cede more such opportunities to White against the Jets in Week 17, as both guys possess similar skill sets while Michel is the most talented pure rusher of the group.

Patriots' Rex Burkhead: Logs 16 snaps Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burkhead was on the field for 16 of the Patriots' 62 snaps on offense in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Steelers, en route to carrying four times for 25 yards and hauling in all three of his targets for 18 yards.

Burkhead was once again out-snapped Week 15 by both James White (25) and Sony Michel (23). In that timeshare context, Burkhead adds depth and versatility to New England's backfield, but he isn't a reliable fantasy option.
