Rex Burkhead won't dominate the touches, but could he lead the backfield in combined rushing attempts and receptions?
At this point, he's probably the safest bet.
To this point, many felt Gillislee would be the early down back but Burkhead had an impressive showing in preseason Week 2 (so did Dion Lewis). The author seems to favor Burkhead as a breakout star this season. The Pats backfield is still too crowded to figure out at this point, but perhaps Burkhead is a guy to at least take a flier on later in drafts.
