NE RB Rex Burkhead - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs New York Jets
Rex Burkhead is healthy, Rex Burkhead is efficient, and Rex Burkhead has forced his way into a Patriots running back corps that's become a three-headed monster. Snap distribution has varied through two games, but overall, Burkhead has seen 35% of Patriots offensive snaps, Michel 41%, and White 39%.

Burkhead's versatility is his most valuable asset, as he's nearly as efficient a rusher as he is a receiver, and his 1.12 fantasy points per touch are tied for 20th among all running backs. With a projected game script that should result in both a heavy reliance on the run as well as lower aDOT passes, Burkhead could see an increased role. He's a decent bet as an RB3 or FLEX play on Sunday.
