Patriots | Rex Burkhead may be top option

Wed, 18 Jul 2018 18:34:45 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead has a good chance to enter the season as the No. 1 option for the team from a traditional running back perspective.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead probably will lead the team in carries this season and should also see some work in the passing game. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most fantasy leagues if he is the top option at running back.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead staying put

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 14:04:26 -0700

Free-agent RB Rex Burkhead (Patriots) is re-signing to a three-year contract with the New England Patriots, according to a source. The deal is heavy on guaranteed money, but financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: This move isn't a big surprise since the Patriots already lost Dion Lewis to free agency. Burkhead was a jack of all trades for the Patriots in 2017 and figures to be in a similar role this season. He has more upside in PPR formats and should be considered a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3, although injuries are a concern after he missed six games last year.
