New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Dion Lewis, Mike Gillislee and James White should all be involved in the offense while Burkhead is sidelined. Lewis should receive most of the touches at running back and can be a No. 2 running back. Gillislee has a chance to be a No. 2 running back or flex option in standard leagues because of his touchdown potential.

Patriots | Rex Burhead misses practice

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 15:42:17 -0800

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead is expected to be sidelined until the playoffs, so owners can avoid him in all leagues. Dion Lewis, Mike Gillislee and James White should all see playing time with Burkhead sidelined. Lewis is probably best fantasy option among the group and can be at least a flex option in leagues. Gillislee has a chance to be a flex option in standard leagues, while White could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead avoids serious injury

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 06:10:35 -0800

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) was diagnosed with a sprained knee and should return for the playoffs, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Dion Lewis and Mike Gillislee will likely see the bulk of the rushing work, and James White will see action in the passing game. Lewis remains an RB2, but Gillislee and White are risky flex options.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead believed to have sprain

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 06:06:26 -0800

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is believed to have a sprained knee and a bruise but avoided a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He'll have an MRI Monday, Dec. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Dion Lewis' stock only gets better, and Mike Gillislee could become a factor again. James White could start to see more carries, too. However, it's anyone's guess which back will be featured any given week. Burkhead's fantasy season is likely over.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead salvages night with TD

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 21:58:18 -0800

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead had only five carries for eight yards, but did manage a touchdown in the team's Week 14 defeat Monday, Dec. 11, versus the Miami Dolphins. In addition, he recorded five grabs for 45 receiving yards.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead was on a bit of a roll entering Week 14 after receiving double-digit carries and logging at least 50 yards on the ground in each of the last two weeks, but none of that happened here. Still, his touchdown and receiving totals made it a useful day at the office. At the end of the day, though, he's a tough-to-trust FLEX option.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead posted a tremendous fantasy line while Dion Lewis topped the century mark in yardage. Despite the big day Burkhead should be treated as more of an RB3 or flex fantasy option in most leagues going into Week 13.

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 05:21:39 -0800

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead rushed 10 times for 36 yards and caught three passes for 27 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders.

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 19:04:07 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead ran four times for 15 yards and caught seven passes for 68 yards in a 21-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: It was Burkhead's best effort of the season and the first time he reached double-digit touches. He could be worth a stash in PPR formats, but he will be tough to trust when his role is likely to fluctuate significantly from one game to the next.

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 12:54:52 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) has been ruled out of the team's Week 6 game.

Fantasy Tip: James White and Dion Lewis should continue to have solid roles on offense with Burkhead sidelined. White can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues because of his role in the passing game, while Lewis can be a flex option in deeper standard leagues.

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 19:31:28 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead has been sidelined since Week 2, but he had 49 receiving yards and a score in two games before suffering the injury. His role in the New England offense isn't clear, but he is worth a speculative stash in PRR formats in case he emerges as consistent weapon.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead unlikely to play

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 14:15:12 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is listed as doubtful for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Burkhead will be sidelined for at least one more week. James White and Dion Lewis should see more playing time with Burkhead out, but neither player was very productive in Week 3 when Burkhead sat out. White may be the more valuable option at this point, but neither should be in fantasy lineups this week.
