Bengals | Rex Burkhead surpasses 100-yard mark

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 14:18:36 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals RB Rex Burkhead rushed for 119 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17. He also caught two passes for 25 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead was starting because Jeremy Hill was injured and made the most of his opportunity. He will be a free agent this offseason and could receive interest from multiple teams. He probably will not find a starting job but could find a solid role as a backup with a team and could be a late-round option.

Bengals | Rex Burkhead leads mediocre run game

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 14:17:54 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Rex Burkhead ran five times for 29 yards in a 19-12 loss to the Baitimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead averaged nearly six yards per carry and picked up the slack when Jeremy Hill exited with ankle issues. With Giovani Bernard out due to a torn ACL, Burkhead could see more touches moving forward. The fact he gained nearly 30 yards on so few carries against Baltimore is encouraging.

Bengals | Rex Burkhead to pick up slack

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 07:50:29 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR/RB Rex Burkhead will take RB Giovani Bernard's (knee) place on third downs and serve as a receiver, runner and blocker. He only has 38 regular-season touches from scrimmage with 19 carries for 70 yards and 19 catches for 167 yards in four seasons. However, the team has expressed confidence in him stepping up into Bernard's role.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead will have a less-than-enticing matchup against the Baltimore Ravens this week. He's a flex option, but it would be wise to see how he fits into the offense this week before trying to count on him in fantasy.
