NE RB Rex Burkhead - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs Miami Dolphins
In a Week 16 game against the Bills that had a playoff atmosphere, Rex Burkhead shined in some big moments, and his performance ranked him as the RB16 for the week. It was Burkhead's best fantasy week of the season, and he totaled 97 yards from scrimmage despite a snap share of just 26%. New England emphasized their "pony" offensive grouping, which features both Burkhead and James White in the backfield at the same time, and while it could have been an offensive wrinkle specific to the Bills matchup, it would make sense generally as a way to maximize the skills of both of the Patriots' dual-threat running backs.

Burkhead has a knack for explosive plays and has had either a rushing attempt or a reception go for 30-plus yards in four different games this season. Burkhead's 8.8 yards after the catch per reception is tied for the ninth-highest mark among running backs, while the Dolphins are allowing the highest catch percentage to running backs and are tied for sixth-most receiving touchdowns allowed to the position. Burkhead has more value at his price on DraftKings ($4,500) than he does on FanDuel ($6,200).
