Patriots | Rex Burkhead back on the field

Sun, 19 Aug 2018 12:53:37 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead is on track to be the starting running back for the Patriots this season. He should be involved in the running and passing game, which can make him a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in most leagues.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead has slight tear in knee

Thu, 16 Aug 2018 22:40:59 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is reportedly dealing with a slight tear in his knee, but it has been deemed a minor injury and something he will be able to play through, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic.

Fantasy Tip: At least now we have an answer to what the "undisclosed" injury is that has sidelined Burkhead recently. Because it's the preseason, the Patriots have absolutely no reason to push things with the running back who is considered the current favorite to lead the backfield and touches. While a tear of any kind in a running back's knee cannot be considered a good thing, the fact he has been cleared to play means owners can probably continue to draft him as a RB3 this month.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead has minor injury

Thu, 16 Aug 2018 17:36:07 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (undisclosed) is dealing with a minor injury but could have played in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16, if it was a regular season game, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead probably will return to the field in the near future as long as he does not suffer any setbacks. He will be part of a committee at running back this season and may lead the team in carries. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in most leagues.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead might be nicked up

Wed, 08 Aug 2018 14:51:33 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (undisclosed) headed to the team's lower field at practice Wednesday, Aug. 8, a field usually reserved for those rehabbing injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead has been a full participant so far during training camp, but he might be dealing with some type of nagging injury. Barring any setbacks, he has the chance to open as the team's No. 1 option in the backfield. However, with James White, Jeremy Hill and rookie Sony Michel, among others, he should still be viewed as more of a low-end RB2 or flex player in most leagues at this point.

Patriots | Rex Burkhead working as returner

Sun, 05 Aug 2018 16:02:16 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead has been working out as a punt returner during early part of training camp. Burkhead has not returned a punt since college.

Fantasy Tip: Burkhead is in line to be the starting running back for the Patriots, so he probably will not be the top option to return punts. He likely will be part of a committee this season but can still be at least a No. 3 running back in all leagues because of his ability to run and catch the ball.

Patriots | New England releases first depth chart

Sun, 05 Aug 2018 12:46:51 -0700

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead appeared ahead of Sony Michel on the team's first depth chart release Sunday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Michel's knee injury basically guaranteed Burkhead's placement on the first team or if his veteran status did the trick. Either way, Burkhead was already expected to play an important role in the offense this season and is the favorite for goal line work. Expect his ADP to skyrocket in the coming weeks, as he is very likely to be a serviceable flex option at worst even when Michel returns.

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.
