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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead misses another practice

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 10:47:06 -0700

Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (rib) did not participate in practice all week and will likely be ruled out for Week 3 against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead has drawn the start in each of the first two games and scored the Patriots' first touchdown last week, but Mike Gillislee and James White appear very much to be the primary options in the backfield. That should remain the case this week as well, although Burkhead's likely absence may lead to more snaps for Dion Lewis.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead still not practicing

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 10:10:39 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead absent from practice Wednesday

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 10:58:32 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (rib) was not at practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead has drawn the start each of the first two weeks, but it has resulted in a total of nine touches. Until his usage spikes dramatically, it will obviously be difficult to start him in fantasy.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead gets into end zone

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 18:56:47 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead suffers injury

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 13:04:49 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead to see more action?

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 08:42:47 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead should play more than the 10 offensive snaps he did in Week 1 in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Following an impressive performance which may have led in part to him getting a start in Week 1, Burkhead saw only 10 snaps against the Kansas City Chiefs. With Julian Edelman out for the season and Danny Amendola out at least this week, Reiss believes it is possible Burkhead and James White could see time in the backfield together in a projected shootout with the Saints. With that said, Burkhead probably belongs on fantasy benches for now.
