Source: the Patriots have activated RB Rex Burkhead to the 53-man roster.

Related players: Sony Michel, James White

Fantasy Impact:

He'll be able to play in Week 13. The return of Burkhead could affect both Michel and White, as Burkhead can handle carries and catch passes out of the backfield. It's yet another weapon in the Patriots arsenal, but it's probably best to at least wait a week to see how they utilize him before plugging him in lineups.

Scouting Report

Week 19 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers go west to east for the second consecutive week to take on the Patriots in New England with a trip to the AFC Championship game on the line. New England is a shrinking four-point favorite with a middle-of-the-pack implied team total of 25.5 points. The Chargers rank top five in aFPA to QBs, which makes Tom Brady a very risky option in the divisional round. That could mean good news for the ground game, as the Chargers rank 24th in aFPA to RBs. Michel should continue to see volume on the ground but remain a touchdown-or-bust option with James White getting most of the passing game work. That makes White the higher floor option in PPR formats.
