    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.

    Huddle Up: The game was a blowout, which may have led to his season-high in rushes. Burkhead isn't used enough on a weekly basis to trust as a flex option.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 7:04pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 4:46am ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead, who missed time due to a rib injury, returned in Week 7 and had six rushes for 31 yards. Burkhead also caught his only pass for 11 yards.

    Huddle Up: It wasn't a bad return for Burkhead, but he remains a flex option due to the state of flux in New England's crowded backfield.

  • Posted: 10/20/2017 2:57pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead likely will be back in uniform after missing several games because of his injury. He will be sharing work with Mike Gillislee, James White and Dion Lewis if they are all active. Owners probably should look for other options to use this week since Burkhead's role is uncertain.

  • Posted: 10/14/2017 12:54pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 1:52pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Burkhead is able to play against the New York Jets. Burkhead may be limited if he plays because of his injured ribs. Owners probably should consider other options because of Burkhead's uncertain status.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 7:31pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) is expected to return against the New York Jets in Week 6, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 1:14pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 4, but has been ruled out for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: James White and Dion Lewis will continue to see more playing time with Burkhead out. White probably has more fantasy value and can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues because of his role in the passing game.

  • Posted: 10/2/2017 1:54pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead has missed the last two games because of the injury and his status for Week 5 is uncertain at this point. Owners probably should consider other options even if Burkhead is active for the game. James White has been more involved with Burkhead out and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 2:15pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 9/27/2017 1:32pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 27.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead was sidelined in Week 3 against the Houston Texans, so it was Mike Gillislee and James White filling the void. Avoid Burkhead for fantasy purposes until he can get back into the mix and carve out a role for himself again.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 2:24pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) did not practice Friday, Sept. 22, and he has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: With Burkhead out, Mike Gillislee and James White will likely see a few more touches in the New England backfield, and Dion Lewis should also see a few extra snaps.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 10:10am ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) remained absent from practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead hasn't been used much through the first two weeks of the season, but he did catch three passes for 41 yards and a touchdown last week. If Burkhead is unable to play then James White gains even more value in PPR leagues and can be used as at least a flex.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 6:56pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead posted three receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 2 against New Orleans and he added two runs for three yards.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead has been talked up as a potential fantasy sleeper and this is why. He'll find the end zone on occasion. He'll likely continue to see a handful of targets and red zone opportunities going forward, and might see more responsibilities if Rob Gronkowski is forced to miss time.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 1:04pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (ribs) injured his ribs during the team's Week 2 game and was considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead was involved in the offense during the first half of the season but did not play after halftime. Owners should know more about his situation in the next day or two. The Patriots use multiple running backs in their offense, which limits Burkhead's fantasy value. He could be a flex option at times this season.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 9:17am ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead is a 'logical choice' to see snaps in the slot with the Patriots potentially down to three healthy receivers, including one (Phillip Dorsett) who has been with the team for less than two weeks, according to CSN New England's Mike Giardi.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead somewhat surprisingly only played 10 snaps in Week 1, so this would be a smart way to get him on the field more often with Danny Amendola likely out Week 2 and Julian Edelman done for the season. It remains to be seen if New England agrees, but Burkhead is still worth holding onto in fantasy until we see a few more offensive game plans from the Patriots.

  • Posted: 8/28/2017 3:22pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (undisclosed) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 28. Burkhead missed the last week because of the injury.

    Huddle Up: Burkhead will be part of a committee at running back for the Patriots this season, so his workload will probably change each week. He has played well during the preseason and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 8/19/2017 9:39pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead worked with the starters in a 27-23 loss to the Houston Texans in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19, finishing with seven carries for 20 yards and three catches for 50 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: With Mike Gillislee sidelined, it was Burkhead who was thrust into a major role. Even if Gillislee is ready for the start of the year, Burkhead is worth grabbing as a RB5 in case injury or Bill Belichick's fickle nature puts him in a featured role.
