From TheHuddle

Oct 10 2:43pm ET

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) is not expected to play Thursday, Oct. 10, when the Patriots host the New York Giants.

Fantasy Spin: It looks as if Burkhead will miss his second straight game, giving a slight fantasy boost for RBs Sony Michel and James White.

From TheHuddle

Oct 10 2:40pm ET

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead (foot) is not expected to play on Thursday night against the Giants, according to a source. It would be Burkhead's second straight missed game. In a game that should feature positive game script nearly the entire contest against a Giants team that is injured all around, both Sony Michel and James White figure to be heavily featured. The Patriots will also be without receiver Phillip Dorsett, which is more good news for pass-catching back White.

From RotoBaller

Oct 9 4:00pm ET

New England Patriots wide receivers Julian Edelman (chest) and Josh Gordon (knee) and running back Rex Burkhead (foot) are all listed as questionable for Thursday night against the Giants. Burkhead practiced in full on Wednesday, while Edelman and Gordon were limited all week. Edelman and Gordon are expected to suit up and need to be in your starting lineups against a bad Giants secondary. Burkhead was inactive last week and barely played in Week 4. The Pats will most certainly have positive game script for most of this game, but Burkhead will still be a very shaky PPR flex option if he's active with Sony Michel and James White ahead of him.

From RotoBaller

Oct 9 3:43pm ET

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9, but is listed as questionable for Week 6.

Fantasy Spin: Burkhead probably will not receive a lot of touches if he plays this week and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 8 5:53pm ET

New England Patriots WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) did not practice for a second straight day Tuesday, Oct. 8. RB Rex Burkhead (foot), S Patrick Chung (heel), DB Nate Ebner (groin), WR Julian Edelman (chest), WR Josh Gordon (knee) and LB Shilique Calhoun (ankle) were limited.

From TheHuddle

Oct 8 4:50pm ET

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead (foot) was limited again during Monday's practice. Burkhead has been battling the injury for a few weeks now and the Patriots playing on a short-week certainly doesn't help matters. The chances of Burkhead playing on Thursday against the Giants should be considered dicey at best. If he does suit up it is reasonable to assume he will be on a snap count, making him an unwise fantasy investment for Week 6.

From RotoBaller

Oct 7 4:53pm ET

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) was limited during practice Monday, Oct. 7. The Patriots did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Spin: Burkhead did not play in the Week 5 game, so his status for this week is uncertain. He probably would not receive a lot of touches if he plays and can be avoided in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 6 6:20pm ET

New England Patriots Rex Burkhead (foot) did not play in the teams 33-7 win over the Redskins in Week 5. Burkhead was trending in the right direction by returning to practice on a limited basis this week but the team obviously does not believe he is ready. Burkhead has been a solid contributor this season but could, once again, be a game-time call when the team plays the Giants on a short-week this Thursday to kick off Week 6.

From RotoBaller

Oct 5 2:03pm ET

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) on Saturday, Oct. 5, was downgraded out for the team's Week 5 game at Washington.

Fantasy Spin: Burkhead has been hurt and trending in the wrong direction since receiving 17 touches in Week 3 against the Jets, and now will miss his first game of the season. That points toward more Week 5 work for the Pats' top RBs, Sony Michel and James White.

From TheHuddle

Oct 4 4:53pm ET

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is listed as questionable for Week 5.

Fantasy Spin: Burkhead likely will not receive much work on offense with James White back and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 4 4:50pm ET

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead will have a welcoming matchup as he is expected to return to the lineup against the Redskins. Burkhead (foot) has posted 229 total yards from scrimmage through his first three games this season and the team could lean heavily on the run game if they get up to a big lead early. Burkhead's versatility as a pass-catcher keeps him in the mix and continues to stunt the fantasy value of teammate Sony Michel. Burkhead will have FLEX appeal only in deep formats for Week 5.

From RotoBaller

Oct 4 4:33pm ET

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot), S Patrick Chung (heel), DB Nate Ebner (groin), WR Julian Edelman (chest) and LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) were limited in practice all week and are listed as questionable for Week 5 versus the Washington Redskins. DL Michael Bennett (shoulder) fully participated in practice all week, while WR Josh Gordon (knee) was upgraded to full practice Friday, Oct. 4; both players no longer appear on the injury report. WR Gunner Olszewski (hamstring) was not given a practice designation for a second straight day Friday but was also removed from the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Oct 4 3:40pm ET

New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman (chest) and running back Rex Burkhead (foot) were limited in practice all week and are questionable for Week 5 against the Redskins. Wide receiver Josh Gordon (knee) was taken off the final injury report. Both Edelman and Burkhead should play in this excellent matchup. Edelman hasn't been great for his owners through four weeks, but that could all change this weekend. He's a solid WR2. Burkhead took a distant back seat to Sony Michel and James White in Week 4. Playing through injury, he's a shaky RB3/flex, even in PPR leagues, although positive game script in the second half should allow him to be more involved.

From RotoBaller

Oct 3 7:43pm ET

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Spin: Burkhead was barely used last week with James White back in the lineup and probably will only see a few touches again this week. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 3 4:13pm ET

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot), S Patrick Chung (heel), DB Nate Ebner (groin), WR Julian Edelman (chest), WR Josh Gordon (knee) and LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) were limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 3. DL Michael Bennett (shoulder) was a full participant. WR Gunner Olszewski (hamstring) was not given a practice designation.

From TheHuddle

Oct 2 5:43pm ET

New England Patriots RB Rex Burkhead (foot) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Spin: Burkhead touched the ball only once last week and will not have a big role as long as Sony Michel and James White are healthy. He can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 2 5:30pm ET

New England Patriots wide receivers Josh Gordon (knee) and Julian Edelman (chest) and running back Rex Burkhead (foot) were all limited in practice on Wednesday. All three players should be in no danger of missing Week 5 against the lowly Redskins. In a great matchup, both Gordon and Edelman can be safely deployed as WR2s. Burkhead, on the other hand, is a shaky RB3/flex in PPR leagues. Game script could allow him to see more playing time this weekend, but his upside is limited with both Sony Michel and James White ahead of him.

From RotoBaller

Sep 29 5:30pm ET

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead made one catch for seven yards and didn't have a carry in a win at the Bills. Burkhead was a game-time decision with a foot injury, but was deemed healthy enough to play. Despite being in uniform, Burkhead was seldom used as the Patriots offense struggled to move the ball against a stout Bills Defense. Last week, with James White inactive, Burkhead had 11 carries and seven targets but today took a back seat to Sony Michel's 17 carries in the run game and White's 10 targets in the passing game. He's worth owning in fantasy in case his role increases, but as long as Michel and White are active Burkhead will be hard to trust in fantasy lineups.

From RotoBaller

Sep 29 12:10pm ET

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead (foot) is active for Week 4 against the Bills. Burkhead has been the team's most productive running back through three weeks, although part of that has to do with James White missing the game last weekend for personal reasons. Still, Burkhead has RB3/flex appeal in PPR leagues despite the tough matchup with Buffalo's defense on Sunday. Through three games, the 29-year-old has 24 carries for 112 yards and a touchdown while also catching 13 passes (17 targets) for 110 yards. His presence hurts the upside of both Sony Michel and White.
