Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (knee, questionable) took limited practice reps Thursday and is questionable for Week 19. Burkhead is making progress but was still favoring his bad leg as recently as Wednesday. His health will determine what sort of workload he sees on Saturday. Dion Lewis is the safest Patriot running back to play this week.

Scouting Report

Divisional Round vs. Tennessee Titans

The Patriots have the highest implied team total as 14-point home favorites in Vegas this week, and that total is a fantasy juicy 31 points. This is also a pass funnel defense as the Titans run defense finished fourth in the NFL. Rex Burkhead (knee) was limited Wednesday and Thursday with reports indicating he was still favoring the injury. It could very well be the Dion Lewis show again this week with heavy volume and extra second half action in a positive game script. Lewis is fully in play as an upper-tier fantasy option this week.
