NE RB Rex Burkhead - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 10 vs. Baltimore Ravens
Rex Burkhead had a decent showing last week by notching 12 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown. The Patriots appear to be taking the "hot hand" approach splitting early-down carries between Burkhead and Damien Harris. The crowded nature of the New England backfield makes weekly performance very difficult to project outside of James White's passing-game role. Burkhead will likely have some useful games down the stretch, but it will be very difficult to predict when those are coming. Burkhead is nothing more than a low-end flex play at best in a tough matchup against Baltimore.
