Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) took limited practice reps Thursday. This is the same program as last week when he was ultimately ruled out. We wouldn't gamble on a gimpy part-timer who may or may not play on Monday night. If he's out, it will boost the prospects of Sony Michel and James White. Brandon Bolden will continue to vulture touchdowns from that duo.
NE RB Brandon Bolden - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 8 vs Cleveland Browns
Rex Burkhead is looking at a potential return in Week 8, and if that comes to pass, it torpedoes Bolden's fantasy value. Bolden has been impressively efficient on limited touches over the past few weeks and would have low RB3/high RB4 potential in Burkhead's absence, so it's worth keeping an eye on Friday's practice report and Sunday's inactive list to gauge Bolden's fantasy-related worth.
